The information technology industry is already heading into a period of amazing transformation. Trends such as cloud computing, mobile, social business, big data and analytics are the enabling technologies that are part of a new computing platform…a platform that all business must get on quickly. This means leaving legacy applications behind and quickly adopting new applications that are built on the new enabling technologies. A critical requirement is that this new platform must be built and designed from the ground up with enterprise wide security in mind.
Other new technologies that are quickly coming into play include Internet of Things, Cognitive Computing, and Digital Services. All of this flurry of activity requires a new breed of application software developer who can leverage all the new technologies and build that computing platform that will allow companies to survive….and thrive into a future that is digital.
