2013 - Shaping Up to be Battle of the Eco-Systems

The consumerization of IT is in 2013 to the point where businesses need to seriously explore short and long term eco-systems. The challenge is to build an eco-system that not only is agile but does not create an artifical cost of change.

The 2013 megatrends in the marketplace includes the consumerization of IT, mobility, ubiquitous networking, social media among other trends. To many businesses, the consumerization of IT is a code word for BYOD (bring your own device).

This Infoworld article citing a Evans Data Corp. cloud survey survey of 400 developers reveals the cloud cuts an average 11.6 per cent in development time.

"While about 10 percent of developers cited no time savings in using cloud environments, an almost equal amount said they had experienced more than 30 percent time savings. About 38 percent cited savings in the 11 to 20 percent range," according to the article.
