If you are a non-technical professional, manager, or an executive with a desire to understand emerging major technology concepts without drowning in technical complexity and jargon, then you've come to the right place!
There was a time when you could ignore technology and treat IT as "that geeky thing." But that world has changed. Technology is increasingly integrated into the fabric of business strategy and decision making. Senior executives and business managers are often called to make decisions on topics that have significant technology underpinnings, and yet, many struggle with the concepts that are becoming pervasive. Technology fluency is no longer an option but a necessity for success in many industries that are getting transformed by advances in technology.
Written for non-technical professionals, this short, "airport and free-time friendly" easy-to-read guide covers ten modern and high-impact technology concepts. This primer is designed to help you get smart on critical advancements without complicated terminology, graphics, flow-charts, and needlessly pedantic explanations. Ten topics, shown below, are covered with a focus on a basic understanding of the concepts and their relevance to everyday business and the functioning of the enterprise.

- XaaS- "Something-as-a-Service: IaaS, PaaS, SaaS
