Why Read This Report

Forrester predicts that the latest cycle of technology innovation, "Smart Computing," will reshape the technology market through 2017. Smart Computing — which involves a blend of smart devices, smart networks, smart analytics and applications, and smart data centers — will introduce new complexities for enterprise architects to address, such as optimizing assets and minimizing risks and liabilities on the corporate balance sheet. Utilities, for example, have implemented Smart Computing in the form of smart grids and smart meters. For companies to benefit from Smart Computing, enterprise architects will need to take the lead in designing the Digital Business Architecture that will support this new technology model.
