Tech jargon: A makeover for the digital era

The industrial revolution 4.0 has set the technology jargons in a frenzy.

Anyone and everyone in the tech ecosystem from IT OEMs, channel partners, solutions providers, ISVs and the IT buyers hear enterprise jargon day-in and day-out: terms like IoT, Cloud, AI... and the list goes on. The CIOs, CDOs, CFOs and all C-suite executives of companies – and also LoBs / business units/ other stakeholders – are often at the receiving end of these ‘hype-to-hope’ tech trends.

Creating and importantly maintaining a balance of technology innovation and the business outcome is a pertinent challenge in today’s hyper-connected world of wires, devices, mobiles, virtual machines, and clouds. Every buck spent on IT is scrutinized to the core.

Let’s move beyond the universal definitions (or expansion if you will) of key technology jargon and attempt to add a ‘business’ tinge and a different outlook in the SMAC world. ‘So Much At Chaos’ is my new definition for SMAC (Social Mobile Analytics Cloud).

I might miss out on many jargon terms but let me shout out a few mainstream ones – in alphabetical order. The first line has the jargon with my definition and the subsequent line is the standard definition of the acronym.
