Five Mega Tech Trends Impacting IT Departments

The following deck on SlideShare really captivated my attention as a marketer because I need to engage with our audience on all the available platforms but it made me wonder how the IT department leaders are actually working through this. The desk lists 50 Powerful Statistics about Tech trends affecting every business and they are grouped under five areas that has an impact on IT departments of every company: Mobile, Social, Cloud, Apps and Big Data.
