In his presentation “How Google Works”, Eric Schmidt, Google’s Executive Chairman of the Board, asks and answers the question “What’s Different Now?” for businesses in the 21st century. The answers that he gives are:
- Cloud computing puts a supercomputer in your pocket.
- Mobile devices mean anyone can reach anyone, anywhere, anytime.
- All of the world’s information and media is online.
It’s worth asking how this applies to me and you, how we work and what we do; I’ll try to give some answers from a personal perspective. And as I’m a Java performance guy, I’ll consider it from that point of view but also from an IT professional’s point of view.
