So what's the future of enterprise computing? Mobile and cloud technologies, of course. Who says so? You do, my friends!
When we want to find out where the world of IT is headed, we turn to IT professionals like you, and the newly released results of our 2010 IBM Tech Trends Survey reveal what you expect to see over the next five years. What's up with mobile? More than half of the 2,000 respondents expect mobile app development to surpass development for all other computing platforms by 2015. Cloud computing? Nine out of 10 respondents see it overtaking on-premise computing as the primary way organizations acquire IT. Plus, the findings shed light on what IT developers and specialists see as the hottest IT career opportunities, which industries are growing, what skills will be in demand, and lots more. Read Michael O'Connell's article -- and listen to the podcast -- to get the whole picture (and check out what the Wall Street Journal had to say about the survey).
And since you seem to know so much about the future, any idea what kind of winter we can expect in New England this year? I need to pick up a new coat before the sales end.
Until next week,
