Hi, my name is Vijay Jayachandran and I own this site. I am the CEO of ACW Analytics, a company that provides situational intelligence during weather events. I am also an Entrepreneur In Residence at the University of Connecticut Technology Incubator.
Prior to this, I spent more than two decades as a product and technology executive at a Fortune 50 company. I have a broad and deep understanding of the B2B2C infrastructure business with domain expertise in advanced simulation, electro-mechanical systems, industrial IoT and smart buildings.
I am deeply fascinated by the unrelenting forward march of science and technology and their ability to open up life-altering capabilities and possibilities. In recent years, we have seen the pace of this march increase exponentially. Change cycles are now happening on time scales that were unimaginable just a decade ago. We now live in a hyper-connected and flat world where disruption is rampant, and the rules of the game change on an almost daily basis. In such an environment, past success and accumulated expertise are no longer a reliable predictor of future growth. Enterprises that can rapidly interpret the changing technological landscape, re-imagine themselves, and move with purpose towards new and sometimes uncertain horizons are the ones that will be best positioned to win.
What emergent technologies will transform our future in ways that we are just beginning to imagine? What skills, mindsets and organizational designs will position enterprises for success in this fast changing environment? And finally, what unexpected challenges and philosophical questions will emerge as we experiment and feel our way into the future? These are some of the topics I enjoy thinking about and hope to explore via my writings.
