    One question

    Q: Which tech innovation value to enterprise IT is most underestimated?

For instance, privacy concerns are a big deal for individual consumers but a lot less significant in the workplace. The real opportunity lies with those who understand the challenges of an enterprise environment and the importance of combining these four major converging forces: cloud, social, big data, and mobility.
