No individual can really track and understand the impact of change in all the emerging technologies like Cloud Computing, Mobile Computing, Social Media, Agile Methodology and Big Data …
You can realistically aim to have an in depth understanding of only a small subset. By in depth understanding I mean you know significantly more about the subset than a person who has spent about an hour Googling the topic.
Let me talk about the subset that I have been exploring in depth and why.
- Cloud Computing: How is the cloud value proposition changing over time?
- Mobile Computing: What are the options to handle multi-platform application development challenge?
- Social Media: How is Hyper-connectivity changing out life?
- Agile Methodology: How Agile can co-exist with Outsourcing?
Changing Value Proposition of Cloud Computing
Cloud computing has high potential to change the way we work but it is not clear how fast this change will happen.
There is too much hype around cloud computing. So, it is important to separate the hype from reality and keep track of the real trend.

- Gartner outlines 5 cloud computing trends – what they really mean (2012)
- Trend in cloud computing adoption (2012)
- Is cloud losing its value proposition (2011)
Multi-platform Challenge in Mobile Computing
Platform proliferation and rapid change makes mobile application development expensive – what is the way out?
Though multi-platform application development has been a challenge from more than 10 years, we still do not have any elegant solution. Still, it is important to understand the state of art and keep track of how the scenario is changing.

- 11 reasons why windows phone will overtake android in next 3 years (2012)
- Has Apple done Samsung a favor? (2011)
- Where is mobile technology headed? (2011)
Impact of Hyper-connectivity
This “collective knowledge of our civilization” is much more than the sum of what we know individually and hyper-connectivity is the key.
The change is so profound that it is difficult to comprehend that magnitude. We are groping and trying to understand it – like the story about blind men and the elephant.

Outsourcing and Agile
Agile works … Outsourcing works – Can they coexist?
The genie is out of the bottle. There is no way either agile or outsourcing can be rolled back. They are becoming too pervasive to be kept apart. So, the only way is to figure out they can coexist.

If there is anything we have learned by now, is that every business paves their own unique path for releasing software- every pipeline, implementation and practices are a bit different, and DevOps comes in all shapes and sizes. Software delivery practices are often comprised of set of several complementing (or even competing) methodologies – such as leveraging Agile, DevOps and even a mix of ITIL, to create the combination that’s most suitable for your organization and that maximize your busines...

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...
