Eric Schmidt on future of enterprise software
Google CEO Eric Schmidt recently spoke to 400 CIOs at Atmosphere conference for CIOs. The future of enterprise software depends on two platforms -- web and mobile, and one principle - sharing and collaboration. Companies and individuals are building apps out of the equivalent of scripts. These apps contrast with traditional IT apps which are complex, expensive, inflexible and take years to build. But web apps need not replicate all the features of legacy apps. Getting 80% of their features is enough. Over the next 5 to 10 years, mobility will be the way to provision enterprise resources and put your best team to build mobile apps. Mr Schmidt covers many questions you may have had on the new ways of doing IT business: third party developers, cloud, scale, cost, HTML 5 and so on.
