IBM has identified mobile devices, cloud computing and four other trends that are looking to shape the federal information technology of the future, according to Jane Snowdon, director and chief innovation officer at IBM Federal.
In an op-ed for Federal Times, Snowdon writes that mobility will continue to forge ahead to help enterprises and industries get closer to their customers, improve communication and elevate productivity.
Cloud computing seems “inevitable” as well, Snowdon says, as companies migrate from traditional, legacy systems to cope with big data.
Snowdon also pointed to multimedia such as a standard data format, big data, analytics and cognitive systems to get insights out of burgeoning information.
“For the U.S. government to take full advantage of all these trends efficiently, a critical focus needs to be put on cloud computing built on open standards,” Snowdon said.
“In some respects, if systems that take advantage of these trends are going to be deployed in a scalable and economical way, open is the only way to go,” she added.
WebRTC is bringing significant change to the communications landscape that will bridge the worlds of web and telephony, making the Internet the new standard for communications. Cloud9 took the road less traveled and used WebRTC to create a downloadable enterprise-grade communications platform that is changing the communication dynamic in the financial sector. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Leo Papadopoulos, CTO of Cloud9, discussed the importance of WebRTC and how it enables companies to focus...
