2013 Prediction - It’s a Mad, Mad, Mobile World

The latter half of December is (unofficially) “predictions season,” when luminaries of various ilk get out their crystal balls and take a stab at predicting what sweeping changes will transform our world.

Best to stuff it away and try to forget, right? But when the U.S. Congress starts holding hearings about supply chain security and calling the executives of global technology firms to testify, just pretending that it isn’t a problem you need to worry about won’t fly with your boss - or your board.

Enterprise Testing of Applications is a Growing Trend
