Let's explore what "disruption" means in marketing.

Disruption refers to two major marketing trends: the rapid evolution of technology and the shifting consumer expectations that coincide with it; and the creative, game-changing ways that brands respond to those new demands.

    "Disrupt or be disrupted."

    Didn't Ellen Carney of Forrester Research, Inc. first coined this phrase in her March 23, 2015 article, "Trends 2015: North American Digital Insurance"? Her article mentioned 55 disruptive insurance service corporation including Insurance Snoopers who halted the launching of GoogleCompare online insurance comparison service.
