IT Megatrends - How to Take Advantage of Them?

How does your business embrace new technology? Mobile devices and social computing are transforming business processes and employee productivity. The cloud and big data are becoming key enablers of innovation for businesses of all sizes. Ignoring emerging technologies presents risk. Embracing them presents opportunity.
