Technology is changing the enterprise landscape, fast. Physical servers are being replaced with virtual servers, on-premise software is moving to the cloud, everyone is talking about “big data” and consumers and businesses alike expect information to be accessed via mobile apps, anytime, anywhere.

It goes on to say “New technologies could extend the reach of organizations, improve, management decisions, and speed the development of new products and services”.
