Our Environment is changing
5 Years ago, I wrote that we are in the middle of a Technology driven evolution with a difference.
Its EVOLUTION accelerating so fast that it feels like REVOLUTION.
My goodness. Now. We really do have a revolution. I underestimated the speed with which things would change. It has been breathtaking.
We have over 5 billion phones. There are more than 1.5 billion plug and play Apple applications, 40 Billion apps downloads. 1 Billion plus Facebook users
AND of course the iPad! - changing the landscape once again? Giving us the Tablet.
The IT ecosystem has irrevocably changed. Cconsumer Technology now drives the landscape. On the business and services front there is a rush to build data centres, offer managed services, build new business applications and assist businesses improve their web presences.

The Growing challenge
The next wave in technology development will be to drive applications to the mobile device whether it is to offer services or get work done. This coming wave will increase the demand for systems and software applications enormously.
For the Business this changing landscape adds pressure. They must keep up, adapt, change and find new business models. They need to stay ahead. The business workflow must change to accommodate these new ways of reaching staff, suppliers and customers.
For IT however it will continue to be difficult to fulfill delivery and responsiveness expectations. It will get harder. Expectations from the business will only increase.
As a result, the challenge of both IT and the Business to work closer together is getting harder. While our technological landscape is changing so rapidly; developing IT solutions to these business requirements has not changed in almost 20 years.
