2 days @Gartner Symposium
Amazon's model tends rely on developing services which are off-shoots out of its book business. The Amazon cloud was a game changer and now Amazon's Silk which is a cloud browser will change the way things are done on the mobile space.
I attended couple of mobile sessions today and coule of social media sessions today. Did I learn anything from these sessions? The answer is Yes. Social media has a defined lifespan. Mobile computing is going to take over and the concept of cloud brokers was introduced.
I personally believe that cloud will reduce costs in the long run and increase throughput. I also believe that mobile will allow users to be more immersed in the internet and social computing is not a IT phenomenon but rather a social one.
The thing that caught my ear was the case study they did about the financial organization and how they built visual tools. They updated their processes to be more "agile" so that the customer is engaged more in the development process. I am therefore waiting for Agile computing. This is the next big thing. Once these technologies are stablize and drive costs down, businesses will be looking for more agility from their IT since the users will be changing their needs based on their social network.
