Agency Upheaval? Something’s Gotta

Great post David

I think technology is driving hard in 3 key areas

1/ Demand side is pulling in Supply side – ie Agencies members pulled into client side, journalists joining corp.comms, similar to what happened when Desktop publishing came. This includes consumers pulling in marketing/branding/pricing and others areas from the supply side into the demand domain forcing supply side to become enablers and aggregators.
2/ Reduced barriers for start-ups – the number of tech start-ups have just shot up, though some are getting acquired by large companies, customer impact tech is exposing the rigidity of larger companies when it comes to adoption, again giving the edge to start-ups
3/ Replaces/pulls in other products/services in – Digital camera, credit cards, car keys, TV remote etc are getting replaced/pulled in by smart phones

Technology ‘Empowers’ and ‘Levels’ things.
