Abstract:

Today’s global business environment is characterized by speed, scale, and scope. New technologies emerge rapidly and new firms are continuously disrupting established industries. In order to compete and survive, firms must find new ways to innovate and are often looking to the outside to do so. The complex, interconnected, and rapidly evolving nature of business ecosystems, however, makes systemic insights challenging. Contemporary approaches typically use a myopic lens, focusing on direct partners, suppliers, customers, and competitors. Yet, the danger of such limited perspectives is an underestimation of risks and opportunities lurking in the periphery.

In this talk, I will discuss the transformative value as well as challenges of designing and deploying interactive visualization tools to understand the structure and strategy of complex ecosystems. I will demonstrate some of the tools we have developed in the Computational Enterprise Science Lab, present case studies, and offer my thoughts on how emerging technologies may impact strategic decision making and enterprise intelligence in the future.
