‘Tech-tonic’ IT Shifts—How to Keep Up with Rapid Change in Technology

  • Remember when there weren’t computers as we know them today? And then when there were, they filled an entire room, rather than in the palm of your hand?
  • Remember when grid computing connected via Ethernet was considered advanced?
  • Remember when ‘cloud’ just meant a mass of condensed water vapor, when ‘mobility’ referred to physical movement whether by foot, bicycle, or a 1969 Mustang convertible, and the phrase ‘big data’ would have drawn a confused “Huh?” from most people?

Needless to say, technology has (thankfully!) advanced over time and continues to change at exponential rates. HP President and CEO Meg Whitman has described what she refers to as a massive tech-tonic’ plate shift—a technological phenomenon that occurs once every decade or so during which unprecedented industry changes unfold extremely rapidly.


However, with unparalleled progress inevitably comes unparalleled challenges, and the technology industry now faces attempting to meet never seen before expectations. A new style of IT driven by cloud, mobility and big data is emerging and will soon become the norm. Lower costs, greater agility, simplicity and speed with the potential to remove barriers to entry in businesses are now requirements. These changes require possessing the right information and infrastructure that will allow you to keep pace—and even pull ahead—with ever-increasing consumer and business demands.


HP is paving the way for the future of technology with products to help you adapt to the new style of IT that is on the horizon. Watch this informative and inspiring video from Meg Whitman and learn how to beat the IT clock.
