What are disruptive technologies, you ask? The term was first used by Harvard Business School professor Clayton M. Christensen to describe a new technology that unexpectedly displaces an established technology. In his book, The Innovator's Dilemma, Christensen separates new technology into two categories: sustaining and disruptive. Sustaining technologies are based on incremental improvements to an established technology, whereas, disruptive technologies can be defined as "simple, convenient-to-use innovations that initially are used by only unsophisticated customers at the low end of markets". Christensen has stated that large companies tend not to pay attention to these disruptive technologies because they don't satisfy the demands of high-end users - at least, not at first.
