The September edition of The Atlantic includes an article by Derek Thompson where he calls out the striking similarities of Amazon today and Sears of 100 years ago. The article is here.

In the 1890’s and for the majority of the 20th century, our great grandparents and grandparents were as attached to their Sears Catalogs as we are to our Smart Devices today. Mail order was the "internet" shopping phenomenon of its era.

The visionaries at Amazon found innovative ways to use today’s tools to create the world’s largest on-line retailer in the same way the visionaries at Sears found ways to innovatively use the tools available a century ago to create the mail order business that eventually became the largest retailer in the US into the 1980’s.

What does this have to do with Applexus and the market it serves?

Like the Sears/Amazon story, case studies about failed and successful enterprises often include lessons learned about opportunities missed and captured. Those missed opportunities are typically rooted in a failure to recognize how new tools can be utilized to transform the business to keep it relevant in an ever-changing market.
