Why Read This Report

Since the 1950s, the US has seen three cycles of technology investment growth and refinement. In 2008, the US entered its fourth such cycle, which Forrester is labeling "Smart Computing." Smart Computing seeks to help organizations maximize assets and minimize liabilities by tackling problems once thought unsolvable, such as smart grids and patient medical record systems. To make this shift, app dev organizations need to continue applying the principles of Dynamic Business Applications in their own work, while also looking for application solutions from software vendors that observe these same principles, as the Smart Computing market changes and matures.
