Five Technology Trends That Require Scrutiny
Cloud Computing, Mobile Computing, Social Media, Agile Methodology and Big Data

No individual can really track and understand the impact of change in all the emerging technologies like Cloud Computing, Mobile Computing, Social Media, Agile Methodology and Big Data …

You can realistically aim to have an in depth understanding of only a small subset. By in depth understanding I mean you know significantly more about the subset than a person who has spent about an hour Googling the topic.

Let me talk about the subset that I have been exploring in depth and why.

  1. Cloud Computing: How is the cloud value proposition changing over time?
  2. Mobile Computing: What are the options to handle multi-platform application development challenge?
  3. Social Media: How is Hyper-connectivity changing out life?
  4. Agile Methodology: How Agile can co-exist with Outsourcing?

Changing Value Proposition of Cloud Computing

Cloud computing has high potential to change the way we work but it is not clear how fast this change will happen.

There is too much hype around cloud computing. So, it is important to separate the hype from reality and keep track of the real trend.

Multi-platform Challenge in Mobile Computing

Platform proliferation and rapid change makes mobile application development expensive – what is the way out?

Though multi-platform application development has been a challenge from more than 10 years, we still do not have any elegant solution. Still, it is important to understand the state of art and keep track of how the scenario is changing.

Impact of Hyper-connectivity

This “collective knowledge of our civilization” is much more than the sum of what we know individually and hyper-connectivity is the key.

The change is so profound that it is difficult to comprehend that magnitude. We are groping and trying to understand it – like the story about blind men and the elephant.

Outsourcing and Agile

Agile works … Outsourcing works – Can they coexist?

The genie is out of the bottle. There is no way either agile or outsourcing can be rolled back. They are becoming too pervasive to be kept apart. So, the only way is to figure out they can coexist.

Topics that I plan to cover
