Most discussions about emerging technology tend to focus on the individual technologies that are working their way towards adoption. CompTIA’s research series on emerging tech has featured AI, blockchain, virtual reality/augmented reality and more.
As businesses reconsider how technology impacts their operations and strategies, it is natural for them to concentrate more on the future trends that have potential to be disruptive. The problem comes in finding the resources to dedicate to such an effort. Treating “emerging technology” as a collection of discrete fields to be dissected individually creates bottlenecks and exacerbates skill gaps.
Conceptually, the smart cities trend can be described as the technology application to solve problems within cities and communities. Most citizens, businesses and local government leadership can readily cite visible problems such as traffic congestion or parking headaches that could benefit from technology. This research which based on opinions of citizens and government, provides further insight into how smart cities and communities are developing and what to expect going forward.
Elevating the understanding of smart city concepts will take time; ‘bridge technologies’ can help.
Making the leap from digital to smart requires advances on my fronts.
Data is critical to smart city success, and it is one of the most challenging components to get right.
Ensuring smart cities are cyber-safe will require resources and a commitment to shared responsibility.
The practice of enterprise architecture planning is usually
found only in the largest organizations and government agencies. The complexity
of massive IT efforts is often addressed with equally complex planning
strategies, and smaller businesses do not have the resources or the appetite
for such heavy investments. Today, though, the critical nature of technology
and radically new models for IT delivery are making architectural planning a
necessity to build success in a digital economy.
This study looks at the current state of enterprise
Planning is done formally or informally?

Cloud computing occupies a unique spot in IT history.
Existing systems were migrated to cloud providers, and companies found benefits
in cost and flexibility while working through issues around security and integration.
Today, though cloud offers a path for business transformation. Powerful new
capabilities and complex automation can completely change the entire
organization. As such, cloud computing bridges two eras of enterprise
technology, moving IT from a heavily tactical function to a valuable strategic
IT service providers have spent the past decade striving to master managed services, cloud services and more. Now, along comes the Internet of Things – and a new wave of business opportunities and challenges.
Case studies from different IT service providers such as Axians, Dimension Data, Impetus Technologies and Presidio Inc. were compiled to provide you insights on their journey toward IoT success and key learnings along the way.
