Talking SMAC

(Social, Mobile, Analytics and Cloud)

With the evolution of technology, we have moved from closed systems of communication to open (social) platforms; physical ground-based systems to disconnected radio-based (mobile) systems; explicit content prose to the deduced and inferred meaning (analytics) of messaging; and from self-sourced locations-specific data centers to utilitarian (cloud) enabled forms of communication and interaction.

This track will explore the uptake and implications of social, mobile, analytics and cloud – SMAC – technologies and the impact they have on the way we work and play.
