Cranford, NJ – March 9, 2012 – Paragon Solutions, an advisory consulting and systems integration firm, today released a collaborative white paper that combines Frost & Sullivan’s industry research with Paragon’s advisory expertise to outline how organizations can best meet the business and technology challenges that lie ahead in the coming 18 to 24 months.

The white paper, Building the Change-capable Organization to Meet the Top Technology Trends of 2012 and Beyond, discusses the need for organizations to build change-enabling competencies in order to effectively address leading technology trends and drivers. The top technology trends identified are: cloud computing, social media, mobility, data growth, business intelligence and compliance.

“In the coming decade, organizations will need to incorporate change-enabling disciplines as they anticipate market altering forces and emerging technology trends,” said Daniel O’Connor, President and CEO of Paragon Solutions. “These disciplines, which are led by the ability to integrate change management, define business processes, strengthen information governance, and derive more relevant insight, will enable firms to respond quickly to new challenges and opportunities. Companies that have embraced this model will maintain competitive advantage and be better positioned for innovation.”

The paper also provides industry-specific case scenarios in sectors such as financial services and insurance, healthcare and life sciences, showing how firms are addressing the challenges and opportunities offered by the technology trends.
