With every advance in the sciences there is an immediate impact on business. Where there are medical breakthroughs or something far more local to life like the use of an MP3 player there will also be business innovation. In fact, the business model used today is a byproduct of commercialized innovation. Companies thrive on new technologies from every field of science whether it's physics or computer science.
Discovery starts with a question or a need to fill. And businesses intervene when it's time for transport, mass producing, or finding patents. These components of the inner offerings of a business prove that there is more at stake than what meets the eye. Businesses thrive on new ways to approach problems as well as making institutions more efficient than what they would have ever been without scientific breakthroughs.
When it comes to marketing the new technology or device for a field like healthcare the companies in question hold several significant roles. At the start there has to be a willingness to learn all there is to know about the advancement. The business should perform due diligence so that the right products are supported. All this in an effort to maintain an image or reputation for the sake of future plans and designs. Most firms would like to maintain a good reputation, but it becomes more and more difficult when decent scientific breakthroughs are stopped by money or some other interventionist tactic.
Without computers and, let's say, cash registers where would the world be? We'd still use our hands to get results in the business endeavor. It goes without saying that innovations are a help to the business. Inventions are useful in business and the demand is great. These inventions are used in such a way so as to make life easier. Just consider the internet or an electronic hand-held device as examples of highly impactful tools on business. Without some of the instruments currently available there would be a cessation of communication. That's earth shattering.
