Mobile innovation's future is just the beginning
By Nitin Dahad
The future of mobile innovation – this is just the beginning
If you talk to anybody who looks at trends and the future of technology, almost everyone talks about three key sectors that will see further innovation and widespread adoption: mobile computing, cloud computing and big data. We saw how all these technologies were effectively utilized in the 2012 US election which took place this month. And we also saw some of these technologies used to good effect in the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics.
Even the law firm DLA Piper’s fifth Technology Leaders Forecast survey
, survey, which was developed in conjunction with the firm’s 2012 Global Technology Leaders Summit, talks about these three areas as the most promising technologies for investors and entrepreneurs.
So how is mobile, cloud and big data innovation driving today’s and tomorrow’s economy? And how was it used in the US elections? And what is the future?
The mobile innovation drive
Mobile communications and devices are already driving a new era in the business and social world. We’ve already seen the influence and important of digital networks and social media at the recent London 2012 Olympics. And we are seeing the emergence of mobile as being a platform for enabling new business models in all areas around the world – in government services delivery, in healthcare, in education, and of course in the enterprise. We already referenced this in our paper on the future vision of telecoms, internet, media and edutainment in the article here.
