Helping organizations take advantage of the convergence of modern technologies like cloud computing, social computing, mobile computing, big data analytics, and the internet of things.

These convergent forces - united by the growing consumerization of technology and the resulting evolution in user behavior - offer the potential to create new business models and system designs. However, they also pose architectural issues and structural considerations that must be addressed for businesses to benefit.
