In July, IBM developerWorks conducted a survey of over 4,000 IT professionals, faculty members and students from among the developerWorks community. We asked respondents about their view of the future of technology, including questions on business analytics, mobile computing, cloud computing, and social business.
Here is a preview of some of our findings:
- For cloud adopters, “developing new applications” is expected to be the top activity in the next 24 months, surpassing today’s top cloud focus areas of virtualization and storage.
- 51% of respondents stated that adopting cloud technology is part of their mobile strategy
- India may be all about social business technology (57% adopting), but other countries including Russia (19%) are more hesitant.
