I've applied for a career in the above industry, but at the moment I know very little about it. I've been doing my research, but I realise I know very little about the history and direction of the industry. I would naturally want the company I have applied for to get the impression I have an idea about what they are involved in. Could anyone tell me a few things about the recent trends in the industry? Am I right in thinking that 'Cloud technology' is currently the biggest trend going on in it at the moment? If I am right in thinking so, is the technology basically about centralising information into one location, rather than it all being scattered throughout a network and its terminals? Are there any other trends at the moment, or that have come and gone?
