The amount of digital information in our world has been exploding while the speed of business is accelerating. There is an unprecedented convergence in the ability to collect and work with big data, simulate, model and predict with game changing fidelity, and previously unimaginable access to information and markets with billions of people communicating and trading through mobility and social media channels. As enterprises attempt to capture and take action on trillions of bytes of data “real-time” about their customers, suppliers, and operations from millions of people, devices, and embedded sensors which are now connected by digital networks throughout the physical world, the result is a convergence of technology forces that is disrupting the global IT ecosystem. Like other critical components of production such as hard assets and human capital, today’s economic activity, innovation, and growth could not take place without the information provided by these persistent and converging forces in mobility, big data, social media and cloud computing.
The business and economic opportunities created by each of these forces are significant, but so are the complexities associated with the global deployment of scarce IT resources. Many executives responsible for these visible initiatives are reassessing their global IT sourcing strategies in order to achieve the right balance of knowledge, quality, risk management, and time to market.
