"As we begin to learn about software development
leadership, we MUST understand how technology has changed and where we think it
might go in the future. Information Technology no longer is a "competitive
advantage" for an organization. It is the "cost of doing
business." In most markets, IT is the cost of entry.
Given that, for your response to this Discussion Thread,
please explain some of the recent changes we have seen with regards to
Information Technology. Please address the following questions:
* What are some of the recent changes to technology that
have impacted organizations?
* How has this technology impacted the development of new
software? Even if the technology change is hardware related, software
development can be impacted."
