Where will the skills to drive the U.S. economy forward come from? Business leaders say they need to recruit offshore to get the skills they need to keep their companies competitive (our poll favors raising the limits in H1-Bs.)
I would agree with some of the other comments - Google glass, as with other innovations in wearable technology, is a sign of how things are rapidly evolving. It may seem like a toy now, but lets face it, it was only a few years ago when cell phones were a novelty and a luxury!
John, I am not sure I would agree with ZDNet - in fact one of my posts from a few months ago actually argues the opposite!
Whilst cloud based services may be increasingly easy to procure, we still have a long way to go before an end user in any business function can bolt together numerous services to make a complete IT ecosystem.
I would go further and suggest that now more than ever a company needs a top class IT Organisation in order to ensure the interconnectivity and appropriate security that a business needs.
In my last blog post I pointed out you can never actually avoid vendor or technology lock-in. This is particularly applicable to the main orchestration tool you use. You have to choose one orchestrator and will want to stay with that choice for quite some time. So, making the right choice is key.
As I mentioned previously, I’m privileged to meet with companies on a regular basis. And I don’t know how often I’ve had a discussion around the subject of vendor lock-in. I clearly understand the fears companies have to hook themselves with a vendor and not be able to take advantage of innovations coming from other sources.
