Sixty-four years back, IT in India was an acronym that meant nothing (well, maybe Income Tax, if you insist). But today, no other abbreviation is more complete than IT. \u00a0\u00a0As India celebrates its Republic Day on 26th January, it would be interesting to see what its tableau would look like. Here are four technologies and trends that we think it would showcase:The Power of Mobility: \u00a0Leading the tableau, mobility shines bright. It\u2019s probably the biggest invention of our times and that wouldn\u2019t be an exaggeration. Consider this: The mobile phone decided if Arvind Kejriwal should form the government in Delhi. It has given a new meaning to democracy. And it doesn\u2019t get bigger than that! \u00a0The Reach of Social Media: Want to start a revolution? Want to start a business? Want to make news? Or Want to kill someone? Tweet. It\u2019s as simple as that. Second on the tableau, and the most colourful one, social media deserves to be showcased. It brought people to the streets for the first time in decades, protesting, seeking justice, wanting change. It bridged the gap between businesses and customers and opened a new revenue stream. \u00a0The Potential of BYOD: The best example of giving power back to the people--like the Aam Aadmi Party and its BYOG: Bring Your Own Government policy--BYOD has changed enterprise IT and organizational culture as we know it. It has given organizations a peep into what the future could be: Bring Your Own Technology or BYOT. The possibilities are endless.The Menace of Shadow IT: Saying \u2018no\u2019 is no longer an option. And CIOs have learnt that the hard way. Say no to a new app and employees will find a way to create one, say no to a collaboration tool and marketing will go behind your back to get one. There is no bigger nuisance than shadow IT. \u00a0It\u2019s the IT world\u2019s answer to terrorism!
