2016 Directions

An exciting agenda for CIC in 2016

CIC has an exciting agenda for 2016 covering our six core technology areas: Cloud, Mobile, Security, IoT and Systems, Dev Ops/Agile and Digital Experience.

We’ll be increasing our coverage of IoT, especially in the underlying support processes and the various tools and platforms that are now available. Twenty-sixteen also sees the launch of our first industry-focused research, with Cornelia Wels-Maug joining CIC to cover Healthcare.

We are also excited about our continued partnership with ADT Mag which hosts our IoT column, and January sees our new regular DevOps feature on The Register.
