Thought Leadership 

-       In networking, more devices than we could ever imagine connected to the network, both wired and wireless/cell connectivity.

-        This shift represents an extreme challenge for security and functionality. 

-       The advances in networking, causes expectations of instantaneous response - and while that is closer and closer to becoming reality, consumers will never be completely satisfied. 

-       These same advancements will help web-programming tools create software. That is both more secure and has greater functionality.

-       As changes continue to occur, the ability to learn new technologies and apply them will be crucial for the field to evolve.
