Title: From the Common Market to the Virtual Market From National Citizen to Web Citizen

From the Common Market to the Virtual MarketFrom
National Citizen to Web Citizen
  • Assessing impacts of change from the Web
  • Andy Mulholland Global CTO

A Borderless State for IT operations by 2015
  • Chief information officers must be prepared to
    source their IT from offshore global locations or
    suffer competitive disadvantage, as emerging
    markets ramp up their technology investments,
    according to analyst firm Gartner.
  • Speaking at the firm's Emerging Trends Symposium
    in Barcelona, Gartner vice president Partha
    Iyengar predicted that the industry will witness
    a "borderless state" by 2015, with organisations
    sourcing their software, hardware, telecoms, IT
    services and people from all over the world.

A Borderless state for Business
Our Normal Response is not adequate
2008 Technology Trends Predictions
  • Cloud tags whats in for 2008?

A Young Employee already sees a different World
A few questions a younger person is likely to
ask (or certainly thinks about) as a new
employee. - Why are there so few Macs in this
office?- Why do so many people get cc'ed on so
many emails?- And yet, why is mailbox capped at
100mb. Can I forward some stuff to Gmail which
gives me 5 GB for free?- Wow - l got a tour of
the massive data center. My school supported more
students than we have employees, but we had a
tiny data center- Why don't we use Skype to call
people around the world?- Can I not just text
message someone's cell phone rather than dial his
pager?- Everyone does not have a personal blog?
We do not have a group wiki?- Why do we pay
technology industry analysts? Can we not research
everything on Google?- Are USB and Bluetooth
devices banned around here?- You kidding me -
those fat manuals are for training for the
system? Can I have them in MP3 files for my iPod
or see a tutorial video on-line?- Ignore my
ignorance but isn't SOA just a complex mashup?-
How come our skills database does not allow for
me to enter my Ruby and PHP credentials?- When I
come back for my full-time role, can I apply for
one of these positions?- Is Nintendo missing
from our vendor master list?
Its not what we think of as IT But a fusing
together of a vast range of technologies,
Products, Services. And most importantly of all
a Life Style change.
We need to think about this in a different way
  • Its not just a technology predication,
  • Its an impact assessment
  • And the management of this

Did you know?
The People Dimension
Sometimes size does matter.
And in India, there are 1,100 people just like
In India, its the top 28.
The 25 of the population in China with the
highest IQs . . .
is greater than the total population of North
And they can all compete online for the top jobs
If you took every single job in the U.S. today
and shipped it to China . . .
Job Mobility and Education are huge problems
  • In the next hour
  • 60 babies will be born in the U.S.
  • 244 babies will be born in China.
  • 351 babies will be born in India.
  • And in the EU ..?

it still would have a labor surplus.
In all probability the top 10 jobs that will be
in demand in 2018 wont have existed in 2008.
We are currently preparing students for jobs
that dont yet exist . . .
But so is research and development
In their working lives todays students will be
using technologies that havent yetbeen invented
. . .
in order to solve problems we dont even
And to win opportunities in markets of types that
we can barely grasp today
Nintendo invested more than 140 million in
research and developmentin 2002 alone.
The sums of money for investment are large
The U.S. federal government spent less than half
as much on research and innovation in education.
And the EU?
It is estimated that a weeks worth of New York
Times . . .
Available Information will over flow
It is estimated that 1.5 exabytes (1.5 x 1018)
of unique new information will be generated
worldwide this year.
contains more information than a person was
likely to come across in a lifetime in the 18th
Thats estimated to be more than in the
previous 5,000 years.
To whom were questions addressed B.G.(before
What about the pace of change
The amount of new technical information is
doubling every 2 years.
For students starting a four-year technical or
college degree, this means that . . .
half of what they learn in their first year of
study will be outdated by their third year of
What is the response to such change?
Technical predictions farther out than about 15
years are hard to make . . .
However we can understand the need to address
certain issues that this will cause and the need
for organizational responses to how we will
manage a very different society . . .
The European Union protection of rights and
resources, citizens and jobs
The Issue is Participation!
  • Who is entitled to what, and how to we prove it?
  • Who is entitled to what from the European Union?
  • How can you track so many so accurately with
    constant change?
  • Privacy, security and escrow control
  • What content is provided and authenticated?
  • The search engine as the provider of provenance
  • The context and history of data changes
  • Who authenticates what and why?
  • How are decisions made using the above factors?
  • The attachment of data to people and people to
  • Mobility and Loose Coupling and every level
  • Why can we defend the borders of the community?
  • The political considerations of the above
