“Since when did Bill turn into such a techno-geek?”

“Since he got that stupid smartphone.”

It was the mobile device that transformed non-technical people into active participants in the modern IT world.  Mobile has broadened the audience for technology, opened up new kinds of applications and content types that can be delivered, revolutionized the way applications are designed, propelled social media to the next level, and paved the way to a state of pervasive connectivity.  The relationship between mobile and all the other forces shaping modern IT is extremely strong.  The cloud: where would mobile be without it?  Social computing: there’d better be an app for that!  Big Data: what do you think is generating all this data?  Analytics: great tool, can I have that on my tablet now?  Corporate culture: fasten your seatbelts, better embrace mobile of be enveloped by it.  Each of these forces are key in redefining modern IT, but the pioneering force that set the stage for all of them was the mobile device.
