Technology is a fast-changing industry, but every once in a while a technology comes along that fundamentally resets the landscape. The move from mainframes to client-servers was a titanic shift in the industry. The advent of compute virtualization opened up massive new opportunities years later.
Today, we’re at another crossroads with a confluence of new technologies joining together to create rapid change in the industry. Mobile computing is becoming a dominant technology consumption model while great new communication platforms make it easier than ever to collaborate and virtualization in networking could be as big as a shift as virtualized compute.
And then there is the cloud. To some cloud computing is just a buzzword and marketing term used by legacy IT vendors to modernize their products. But it’s revolutionizing the consumer technology market while there are also a whole new crop of companies that have massive IT operations but have never bought a server and live all in the cloud. Cloud computing is growing from niche use cases like test and development and disaster recovery to becoming a major strategic initiative within enterprises today. As that happens, competition in the industry is heating up.
Not a day goes by that there is not something exciting happening in this industry. This blog will be the place to make sure you’re on top of it all.
