For people like me who want to see more software defined businesses, some fun declarations from the third platform folks, IDC:
- By 2016, 65% of global competitive strategies will require real-time 3rd Platform IT as a service.
- By 2016, 80% of CIOs will deliver a new architectural framework that enables innovation and improved business decision making.
- By 2016, 80% of CIOs will accelerate 3rd Platform migration to counter premature obsolescence of current IT assets
So, you know, around now-ish.
