Third-platform solutions to drive optimal IT performance

By implementing the next-generation technologies (also called third platform) — mobile, social, cloud and big data — IT budgets can be cut down to 50 per cent and the remaining 50 per cent can be invested on innovation. According to a survey conducted by EMC, 88 per cent of respondents expect these trends to give their organizations a competitive advantage while 79 per cent see IT as a strategic business driver, more than ever before.
