The Nexus of Forces: Social, Mobile, Cloud and Information | Gartner

What a great title!

The Nexus of Forces: Social, Mobile, Cloud and Information | Gartner.

That alone deserves a post. But Gartner has brought together a lot of research, data, and analysis on four major IT trends that are converging. As they describe it:

A nexus of converging forces – social, mobile, cloud and information – is building upon and transforming user behavior while creating new business opportunities.

In 2014, the enterprise software market will experience the greatest level of growth, disruption and new opportunities for the last 13 years, according to Tom Eid, research vice president at Gartner. By 2017, the Nexus of Forces-based IT purchases will account for over 26% of the total enterprise software market revenue, an increase from 12% in 2012, representing over $104 billion of the new global enterprise software revenue from the Nexus of Forces in 2017.


Browsing through the tabs and links, there must be 100+ reports included in the “nexus” — a bit overwhelming, but a broad menu of options if you’re an IT professional who wants to know how you can leverage these technologies and trends to the benefit of your organization.
