IT departments are under more strain than ever. Technologies are changing all the time and it’s a challenge for IT departments to stay up to speed. In an increasingly competitive workforce, businesses must leverage state of the art technologies to stay ahead. The IT director is often tasked with spurring technological innovation and keeping the company ahead of the curve by using the latest techniques in software development, mobile applications, website design, application integration, and more. This begs an important question: who will help them get all the IT staffing done?
In a little less than a week, Apple will unveil the latest generation of the iPhone. I'm going to go ahead and predict that Apple-fans will think it's the greatest thing ever and find themselves in a spot where they suddenly need one. Most non-Apple fans will probably deride it for not being fast enough, big enough, small enough, or just plain too "Apple."
In any event, watching Apple prime the PR wires and get "buzz" serves as a nice reminder that technical products need to continually advance and evolve to remain relevant. There's always some other company out there coming up with a bigger/smaller/faster/better, version of your product. If you're not constantly evolving, you're falling behind.
