Utgifterna för ICT kommer (enligt detta inlägg) 2014 att handla om ”tredje plattformen”. Molnbaserat, mobilt, socialt och Big data. Och det kommer att ske explosivt.

”Last year’s predictions from IDC were all about the termed 3rd Platform, the combined technologies of cloud, mobile, social and big data computing making a significant presence in overall IT spending.  In 2014, IDC now predicts that the battles for IT industry dominance and indeed survival are focused on further investments in 3rd Platform technologies. They go on to declare both an explosion in innovation and industry consolidation, namely a small number of big “winners” in mobile platforms, cloud infrastructure and solution marketplaces as the big vendor players vie for control and long-term revenue growth.”
