Today’s business is disrupted by Internet+ technologies, i.e., social networks, mobile applications, big data and cloud services. If you look at the top 10 companies in the world today, there are all global technology ventures like Apple, Amazon, Alphabet (Google), and Facebook in USA, or Baidu, Alibaba and Tencent in China, which are quite different from 10 years ago, when top 10 companies were all resource intensive.
