It is always important to stay ahead of your competitors. In IT it can be beneficial to use a big culture technology to get ahead of competitors. A big culture technology is a technology that offers the promise of long-term competitive advantage. But a big culture technology will also require a massive cultural change in order to achieve this competitive advantage.
