An interesting article on CNET by Gordon Haff.

He outlines the big trends occurring right now in commercial computing:

  • Cloud computing: moving processing and data storage off the desktop
  • Mobility: An explosion of wireless devices ranging from laptops to tablets to mobile phones
  • Big Data: New methods for handling and analyzing the huge amounts of data being created by the previous two

All three of these trends are reinforcing each other in interesting ways.
