AvantiKumar in this blog for CIO-Asia.com talks about the challenges of the next big Information Technology trend and how any organization can reap business benefits when these two dynamic things–trials and profits–are not always equal in measure. The question here is how can one manage the norm that is stress when each new development in IT brings about major changes, and, although some of these ‘next big things’ may still be in the hype stage, the speed of adoption is increasingly catching IT on the move. AvantiKumar thinks that the top innovation for IT has already arrived in the form of mobility.
And as mobility is considered a top IT trend, it brings about changes from both ends of the spectrum, both technological and behavioral. What it also brings are ever-increasing risks in security. Even though there is always a downside when changes come into play, there are also advantages coming out of these. The conversations about the mobile revolution among IT professionals in Malaysia are already about the impact of wearable technology and the Internet of Things. In a recent Computerworld article, IDC reports that total global wearables sales will exceed 19 million units this year. By 2018, international sales will hit 111.9 million units, resulting in a year-over-year, and compound annual growth rate of 78.4 percent, according to IDC projections. Organizations are looking for the opportunities from wearable technology, which is part of a still developing trend of the ‘Internet of things.’ Wearable products talk to each other and have the potential to make it easier to navigate the Internet of Things [IoT].
The key here that the blog writer wants to put emphasis on is management. Perhaps to manage the stress, risks, threats and other issues brought about by new trends are essential for a business organization to overcome challenges, learn to adopt and earn the rewards eventually. It is important to stay the course in managing resources well, while learning to incorporate the ‘new stuff’ when changes happen over a period. Adjust well in between phases. These things are the norm when changes or deviation occur, but when there are changes or new trends, it is most likely to bring about good things…All it needs is time.
