Over the past 20 years in the IT industry, visit this site I have seen many trends and changes, some of which have laid claim to the title of most disruptive technology.
From ‘would you like email with that system, no thank you we use fax’, to the point that email is now just another mission-critical application. From centralised compute to decentralised distribution and back to centralised again.
The advent of mobility, Big Data and cloud have together been described as amongst the top disruptive technologies of the 21st century. But I like to think of them as enablers to a much larger total disruption in the form of Internet of Things (IoT) or as Cisco have cleverly termed it, the Internet of Everything (IoE).
