The next big thing in IT

Social media will continue to innovate change in the ways we work, says Ngobese. It will in?uence corporate strategy, business functionality and enhance organisational ?exibility. Advances in systems and mobile capabilities such as tablet computing have opened the door to go beyond sharing data to make the enterprise truly mobile. “We will continuously evaluate our mobile strategies and examine potential mobile opportunities and new hardware and software capabilities,” says Ngobese. Growth is at the top of the business agenda but opportunities are not easy to ?nd. Major organisations will continue to seek and exploit potential for growth both at home and abroad. CIOs will be required to help de?ne such opportunities and identify actions required to bring them to fruition.
