Your sentence is fine as it is. The only thing I would change is removing "around the world". It sounds redundant to me.

As a side comment, I agree with your sentence 100%.

In today's interconnected world, especially in technology, there is little geography, so you people just have to keep pace with innovation, rather than innovation from certain places- software is pretty universal. I wouldn't use it either, though it isn't wrong to use it.
