CNN Business Editors Note

To understand business in 2018, you have to recognize that every company is — in some way, shape or form — a tech company.

The rapid pace of technological change has established a new generation of leaders and humbled entire industries. Innovation is forcing CEOs and workers to adapt. It is changing the playing field for investors, titans of media and entertainment, and governments worldwide. It's creating tremendous opportunity, while triggering unintended consequences, across the global economy.
