They are just another device in the BYOD mix. A smart watch is little more than a smart phone except it's on your wrist and probably has more med, diet and exercise measurement etc. The challenge comes with wearable devices in your clothes or ones that are not visible. That's well into the future, IMO.
Agree with you Chris. I have worked with too many companies who is either confused with what cloud is or expects something different from what their IT can deliver. Having that business and IT alignment, and with a crawl/walk/run approach is best in my opinion.

Think about how its principles can yield meaningful results for your business.
The business intelligence insights your organization has in all the data it stores can lead to game-changing opportunities--if your analytics system has the power to uncover them. Traditional data analytics are often maxed out by big data, unable to return results in a timely fashion, resulting in missed business opportunities. Business and marketing leaders can’t execute on new ideas to generate more revenue because IT can’t support their requests to add new data sources to existing queries.
