Technologies like mobile, big data, in-memory databases and virtualization are fundamentally altering the foundations of computing – processing, memory, network, storage and even the physical boundaries. Meanwhile, the cloud (private, public, hybrid) is changing the economics of computing. Social computing and machine-to-machine are flooding enterprise computing platforms with information storms. Agile development teams are releasing new code at a rate of three to five times faster than previous methodologies (such as waterfall and RAD). Everyone agrees — change is coming in waves faster than ever before. Consequently, enterprises need to change the way they look at their technology infrastructure. All of which is creating great business opportunities for startups and emerging growth companies.
