In the quest to modernize IT, thetopkey priorities for forward-looking CIOs areanalytics and business intelligence,mobile technologies, and cloud computing. We live in an increasingly data-driven world where just about everything we do can be quantified, analyzed, and optimized.

The flexibility, scalability, andincreasing adoption of cloud computing help make sure all types of big data people want to access remain available on demand.

As consumers, we have high expectations and little time. We want applications on our smart phones to be more collaborative, efficient, and productive in our lives. We connect with others through social media sites,share pictures and video links. We use productivity apps to organize tasks and events, manage our budget and finance, monitor energy use and our home...all from a phone. Isn't it time that we do the same for work?
