Three ways IT can team up with mobile application developers

Source – searchmobilecomputing.techtarget.com Today, advancements in monitoring, management and automation software abstract much of the physical IT infrastructure away. As a result, IT departments no longer manage servers, networks and storage separately — at least not to the extent they once did. These components are all part of a software-defined data center that depends less on humans and more on computer code. IT roles are evolving in response to this new approach. There are fewer specialists tasked with monitoring, maintaining and
