Internet Guru Mary Meeker released her annual “Internet Trends” presentation yesterday.


It weighs in at 197 slides (whatever happened to the 10-slide rule?) and I can’t pretend to have digested it all. But I would recommend the section beginning on slide 29, which opens with a quote (actually, a tweet) from Box CEO Aaron Levie saying “enterprise software used to be about making work more efficient. Now the opportunity is for software to transform the work itself.”



Meeker highlights a dozen mobile apps that have the potential to change the way executives work by, among other things, bringing critical data insights to their fingertips. She quotes DataStax CEO Billy Bosworth: “Ten years from now, when we look back at how this era of big data evolved…we will be stunned at how uniformed we used to be when we made decisions.” I think he’s right, although it may take more than ten years to make sense of the current data chaos that engulfs most businesses.


Meanwhile, closer to home, the report shows why even worse times lie ahead for print media.


Enjoy the day.
