Video interview: Gartner chief of research, Chris Howard

In this video, Chris Howard, chief of research at Gartner, discusses why CIOs should look at cloud, mobile, big data and social computing.

Gartner calls these technologies a "Nexus of Forces" which will transform many companies into technological businesses. 

He says IT consumerisation, through smartphones and other smart devices, shifts power to the user. This power can be harnessed to enable a business to use technology in ways that were impossible before. For instance, companies can monetise the data they collect from instrumentation.
