IT Industry embraces new round of changes

China’s IT industry has seen huge changes since the early days of computing. Speaking at the 2016 China IT Industry Annual Meeting, Lu Shan, head of the China IT Industry Research and Development Institute outlined this evolution from the earliest computers to the PC, to the internet and cloud computing. According to Shan, the IT industry enters into a new cycle every 10-15 years.

Sun Huifeng, CEO of CCID Consulting, claims that the IT industry is now entering a new cycle thanks to the following major changes:

  • A ubiquitous wireless network resulting from new IT infrastructure constructed for cloud computing and 4G mobile telecommunication 
  • New economic patterns in the IT industry backed up by new industrial elements and big data.
  • A boom in new business models over the next 3 – 5 year which will coincide with the rise of the shared economy.
  • A green revolution which will enable further efficiency in the IT industry.
