Smart systems and services opportunities are enormous in scale and scope …..
Smart connected systems spending is likely to grow to a scale that is larger than all previous generations of IT and Network spending Since the beginning of computing there have essentially been three generations of technology and architecture: mainframe computing, personal computing, and cloud computing. Each generation of technology has had significant impacts on productivity and efficiencies: mainframes standardized transactions; personal computing placed processing power into the hands of professionals; and now, cloud-based systems enabling drastically lower cost IT services and applications.
What is important about this next wave of Smart Systems is the combined impact of these technologies. While there is standalone value in each of the innovations, it is the combination of all three technologies that will allow computing technologies to inform real-world physical systems.
