Personal computing has changed dramatically in the last decade. We now watch movies on our phones. We carry out entire record collection in tiny iPods. And the tablet revolution is changing the way we consume our news, communicate with our friends, and watch out favorite television shows.
But what about business computing? The good news is that advancing technology is changing the way we use computers at work, too. In fact, changes in workplace computing are occurring nearly as fast as they are in the world of personal computing.
The editors at InfoWorld took a look at some of the technology that is exerting the biggest impact on business computing. Here are some of their finds:
As InfoWorld says, HTML5 looks similar to traditional HTML. But HTML5 actually allows users to accomplish so many more tasks.
For instance, with HTML5 users can take advantage of video and local data storage capabilities. HTML5 also looks to be the go-to language for web developers as Adobe ends its development of mobile Flash.
Working together with continuous build tools
InfoWorld also points to the growing popularity of such continuous build tools as Jenkins and Hudson as dramatically changing the world of IT and business computing. Continuous build tools allow technicians to work together for the betterment of a company.
As InfoWorld writes, these tools put code through a continuous stream of tests and then send alerts to developers about any problems with this code. This keeps all developers working toward the same goal, InfoWorld says.
Of course, this is just a small sample of how business computing will change in the coming years. It will be interesting, though, to watch exactly how quickly changes come to the important business-computing arena.
