Innovation: Evolutionary or Revolutionary

As the pace of technology progresses rapidly, it has become vital for CIOs and Business leaders to keep an eye out for transformative technologies that help increase efficiency, drive revenue, and much more. While much of the market calls cloud, consumerization and mobilitytransformative trends,” they’re equally characteristic of a larger movement around “comprehensive productivity.”

Businesses and their employees are searching for ways to remain connected, collaborate, and share data while simultaneously having complete access to their personal digital life. Consumerization is the trend driving the convergence of business and personal digital lives, but the trends of cloud computing and mobility are truly enabling consumerization.

Calm Response helps Companies define their Business Strategies to accommodate and build on these trends.

The Current Trends

There are four trends that are 'Currently' radically changing enterprise IT as we know it. These trends are fundamentally changing the way that people work—creating new possibilities for improved productivity and efficiency while supporting a more flexible workstyle that better fits with today’s workers:

These “trends” are becoming real scenarios today for most enterprises, having a pronounced effect on how individuals work and how businesses compete. They are also increasingly a differentiator for recruiting and retaining the best talent, who expect to use the latest technology to do their jobs.

Cloud Services

The cloud is the backbone for a lot of the changes that we are seeing in technology in the enterprise today—it makes anywhere connectivity to internal resources much easier from all kinds of devices, and it provides the scalability and agility to support rapid deployment of new tools across a dispersed workforce.

All of the other trends are really enabled by the cloud, which is why it is seeing such rapid uptake and interest across our enterprise customers.

Mobility

New mobile devices—from smartphones to tablets to ultra-portable laptops—combined with increasingly prevalent Wi-Fi and cellular data access let your employees stay connected from virtually anywhere.

By some estimates, more than a billion people will be using smartphones and tablets by 2016. Today’s workers are increasingly mobile and they need—and expect—to be able to choose the devices they will use and to have access from anywhere to the resources they need to do their jobs.
Social Business

Social is similarly redefining the workplace. Social networking sites have redefined how people connect and share with each other (particularly the millennial generation, who have never known a time without their mobile phones and computers).

That influence is spilling over into the workplace, and enterprises are seizing the opportunity to establish internal social tools that bring their people together in more natural ways.

Data, more than just Big Data

Data is everywhere thanks to the explosion in devices, the increase in digital sharing of content, and the tremendous scalability of the cloud. Data stores both inside and outside the enterprise are skyrocketing (up to 2.7 zettabytes in 2012!), and the opportunity for businesses today is to tap into those data stores and make them accessible in a way that will enable their people to get new insights and make informed, timely decisions that will drive the business forward.
