Technology Innovation Service Humanity
Technology & Innovation is all about serving people with their needs. However, both are not really being utilized to maximize all of the society’s goals specifically. Applications which make money get built, whereas applications that don’t generate profits do not get created. Even though a product or service isn’t significantly financially beneficial is no reason not to be done. Filling the gap between the possible and the financially rewarding in socially beneficial applications of technology is crucial, and it’s a necessary effort that will require the attention of the technology community.
On many occasions, normal commercial technology serves very well with supporting the social sector. Modern telecom and transportation companies are crucial and invaluable in meeting societal needs, Nevertheless, mission critical requirements which exist just in the social sector in many cases are weak commercial opportunities for organizations. The individuals who most need to have specific types of technology& innovation are least in a position to pay for them. Such cases of market failure have to be tackled.
The social sector is a significant new marketplace for a multitude of technology services, applications and products. Due to the definition of the sector as serving society’s deprived communities, market forces do not provide sufficient compensation to meet these needs. The model of the social enterprise may help address these market failures. Social enterprises are organizations with two bottom lines: social and financial. These businesses choose to serve the underserved, even when these communities may not offer a serious economical profit.
The social entrepreneurs have to employ the same intellect and discipline on their philanthropy that they have utilized for business.
Also, improved investment in technologies that directly support the social sector can provide important outcomes for society. The social sector lags the for-profit sector in adopting technology tools which can significantly improve the potency of the sector.
Innovative specialised Information Systems are heavily needed for managing the flow of information in most of the social & non-profit projects and organizations.
We are at a fundamental intersection in the advancement of technology and social enterprise. Working hard together, the technology, nonprofit, social entrepreneurs, enterprises, governments and international organizations can ensure far-reaching success in the long-term efforts in order to reach the social potential of technology.
