  • Why We Need More Tech Talent to Digitize the World 23 March 2015, 11:49 AM This blog was originally published on the Huffington Post ImpactX . Digitization.

In fact, according to the 2013 Global Information Technology Report , adoption of such information and communication technologies (ICT) provided a $193 billion [...]

In fact, a new Cisco-sponsored survey found that security topped federal IT leaders’ wish list when it comes to evaluating [...]
