Clouds, big data, and smart assets: Ten tech-enabled business trends to watch

Advancing technologies and their swift adoption are upending traditional business models. Senior executives need to think strategically about how to prepare their organizations for the challenging new environment.

Two-and-a-half years ago, we described eight technology-enabled business trends that were profoundly reshaping strategy across a wide swath of industries.1 We showed how the combined effects of emerging Internet technologies, increased computing power, and fast, pervasive digital communications were spawning new ways to manage talent and assets as well as new thinking about organizational structures.
Since then, the technology landscape has continued to evolve rapidly. Facebook, in just over two short years, has quintupled in size to a network that touches more than 500 million users. More than 4 billion people around the world now use cell phones, and for 450 million of those people the Web is a fully mobile experience. The ways information technologies are deployed are changing too, as new developments such as virtualization and cloud computing reallocate technology costs and usage patterns while creating new ways for individuals to consume goods and services and for entrepreneurs and enterprises to dream up viable business models. The dizzying pace of change has affected our original eight trends, which have continued to spread (though often at a more rapid pace than we anticipated), morph in unexpected ways, and grow in number to an even ten.

Cloud Computing: Ticket to the Corner Office?

Do IT managers and professionals view cloud computing as a threat or opportunity to their careers? Understandably, early on, there was fear that IT jobs within enterprises — already under threat from outsourcing — would be in more jeopardy as companies adopted pay-by-the-mile, on-demand solutions from outside providers, versus investing in their onsite IT resources.

Certainly, many cloud implementations began as workarounds to the restraints imposed by IT departments, as well as corporate finance overseers. It seems faster and cheaper (at least initially) to tap into Salesforce.com modules than wait for months for IT to design, create and test systems — assuming the budget was approved for the project.

But rather than replace IT jobs, cloud may be having another effect. In many cases, it is elevating the role of IT-savvy managers within many enterprises. Let’s face it, many line-of-business people are not qualified for — or really interested in — sifting through and evaluating all the cloud options out there, at least for technical merits. They just want to get things done, and are turning to IT executives to assist in the process. IT is no longer just a department full of people who code, build and maintain systems. IT is the business partner that plans and strategizes what types of technology solutions the business needs to move forward.
