The $3.3 trillion information and communication technology (ICT) industry is now transitioning to 3rd Platform technologies. The 3rd Platform is a collection of technologies that will accelerate how we build out these information assets as well as help us better leverage these assets. "Key technologies that are part of this 3rd Platform include mobile devices, Big Data, cloud services, and social business," said Stephen D. Hendrick, group vice president for application development and deployment research. "Engineered systems, open source, and the convergence of business process management and content management represent areas in addition to these 3rd Platform technologies that are driving our predictions for 2012."
