Telecom, IT, energy and automation industries are set to converge

Sarwant Singh, a Frost & Sullivan analyst, said in his new book New Mega Trends that expanding wireless and wireline connectivity will drive convergence on four fronts: technologies, products, industries and vendors. With the proliferation of new connected devices (i.e., smart phones, laptops and tablets), Singh forecasts that there will be an eventual convergence of telecom, IT, energy/infrastructure and automation/building control industries, which will then lead to a convergence of head-to-head competition among companies in these seemingly separate spaces. Fred Donovan, editor of FierceEnterpriseCommunications, examines Singh's new book and thesis in his latest Editor's Corner. Article
