Apple on top of innovators list…yet again

Business Technology | November 26, 2013

Apple’s critics have been frustrated with the company lately, criticizing it for failing to come out with any innovative products since the death of founder Steve Jobs. But a recent feature story by Entrepreneur provides evidence that the criticism might be misplaced. As stated by the story, Boston Consulting Group recently ranked Apple first on its annual list of the most innovative companies. This is the ninth straight year that Apple has nabbed this honor.

A big achievement

According to Entrepreneur, Apple’s biggest rival today, Samsung, is at number two on the list. Yet another tech giant, Google, fell from second in 2012 to third this year. Samsung’s position is all the more impressive considering that it ranked just 26th in last year’s survey by Boston Consulting Group.

It’s a tech world

Tech companies, not surprisingly, dominate the list. Along with Apple, Samsung and Google, other tech giants on the list include Microsoft, in fourth place; IBM, in sixth place; Amazon, in seventh; and Sony, in 11th.

The future?

The list is an important one. As Entrepreneur notes in its story, the cliché “innovate or die” is a cliché for a reason: It’s true. The United States operates in an information economy. Those companies that aren’t consistently reinventing themselves and offering innovative new products will find it hard to succeed these days.
