This was one of several Bridge Series seminar presentations conducted at the University of Gloucestershire in the 2002-2004 period, delivered in conjunction with Business Link, Gloucestershire. This presentation examines three technologies that were then considered key for organisations wishing to exploit the opportunities of the 'new information age' - XML, Broadband and handheld devices. These three technologies have all evolved considerably since then, but are still central to the IT deployment of most organisations. The key issues discussed are also relevant to the adoption of the newer generation of technologies now being debated in similar manner - the four so-called SMAC technologies (Social, Mobile, Analytics and Cloud), to which one could add a fifth - 3D printing. The issues facing IT managers challenged with adopting and assimilating these technologies are similar to those in evidence over a decade ago.
