A CIO Primer on Key Emerging Technologies

IT leaders in organizations often overlap two disciplines. There is technology on one side and there is business on the other. You are in a role where you need to understand the advantages and capabilities of some of the latest technologies and emerging technology trends. But at the same time, you don’t have to know every programming language or how to configure every part of the infrastructure.

But you need to be able to explain these new and emerging technologies in a language that the rest of the executive group can understand. In some cases, she might recommend that you don’t jump into a new technology that doesn’t make sense for your business or industry at this particular point in time, and you’ll need to explain why. In other cases, you may want to consider whether certain use cases in a particular technology make sense for your organization.

If a technology makes sense for your organization, you will probably need to explain it to your colleagues at the executive level so that they have a solid sense of the benefits to the company.

Whatever the case, there will always be new technologies emerging, and as a tech savvy, you need to keep up to date on what they are and what they can do for your organization. With this in mind, we have compiled the following series of technical summaries on the various technologies that have gained momentum over the past year. Use these technology briefs to find out about the latest technologies that could shape the future of your organization.
