Big Ideas

The Cloud Changes Everything

We are witnessing the most fundamental transformation in computing ever – the disassociation of software from dedicated hardware resources. This transformation will not only effect the markets and vendors, but virtually transform all enterprises into software companies.

Next Generation Applications

The next generation of applications we will use will fundamentally depart from our current conception of applications. Analytics, BigData, Cloud, Mobile, Social and more will create new app markets while disrupting existing ones. Next generation applications will be ideated, built, marketed, sold, implemented and supported differently.
