Finance and the Internet of Things: The Future is now
The age of the Jetsons is upon us. Technology progresses exponentially and most finance leaders either do not have a grasp on what tools are available to them or how their businesses can thrive as a result of technology. Credit cards and checks are now a thing of the past and paypal, square, and biometrics are moving into the spotlight. Companies like Google and Amazon are finding ways to supply demand that requires instant gratification or basic needs within the same day. In order to stay current and profitable, all companies will need to start updating their view and acceptance of technology as a way to conduct business, market to the general population, and create work environments that will attract top notch talent.
