A couple of weeks ago IDC put out their predictions for 2014, saying “2014 Will Be a Year of Escalation, Consolidation, and Innovation as the Transition to IT’s “3rd Platform” Accelerates.”
The part that really caught my eye was the the second half of the following sentence:
“In 2014, we’ll see every major player make big investments to scale up cloud, mobile, and big data capabilities, and fiercely battle for the hearts and minds of the developers who will create the solutions driving the next two decades of IT spending.” — Frank Gens, Senior Vice President and Chief Analyst at IDC
We have entered the app-centric world and companies that don’t seek to understand or serve developers will, at best, find themselves at a severe disadvantage.
Pau for now…
