How_the_SMAC_Stack_is_Effecting_the_IT_InfrastructureIt is increasingly clear that Social, Mobile, Analytics and Cloud structures, known as the SMAC stack, are transforming the IT industry.

The SMAC stack is essentially the next wave in IT, and represents how new technologies and the massive amount of data now generated need to be harnessed for a successful business and IT architecture.

This article will cover the SMAC stack and how you should tap into this growing phenomenon.

What is the SMAC Stack?

SMAC stack stands for Social, Mobile, Analytics and Cloud, and is quickly proving to be essential to remain competitive in the IT market.

S - Social means using promotional structures from services such as Twitter, Facebook and Youtube, but also means tracking data from these services for your company’s benefit.

M - Mobile represents how companies can tap into smart phones to grab data from users, interact with customers, and coordinate with employees 24 hours a day.

A - Analytics is all about tapping into the growing data that can be collected and actually making sense of it.

C - Cloud aspect is about utilizing the computing power now available to your company to store data, secure your IT structure, and efficiently utilize computing resources that were previously never available.

How the SMAC Stack Will Improve the IT Infrastructure

The SMAC stack is already improving the IT infrastructure, but as the SMAC elements become even more important, this process is expected to really take off in the coming years.

By utilizing all of the elements of the SMAC stack, one can increase connectivity with team members within your company, ensuring they can not only communicate across a number of platforms, but also even automate and categorize information.

It can also increase collaboration between business partners and software developers, helping to find new business opportunities and vastly improve upon product offerings. Finally, an IT infrastructure that utilizes SMAC can increase productivity by allowing for better oversight of team members,

How Companies Will Benefit from SMAC

Developing SMAC stacks for other companies and utilizing SMAC stacks within your own software company are both increasingly profitable and essential for IT networks. Netflix’s is a good example of a company utilizing SMAC stacks to provide a service, allowing millions of users to stream movies from their homes, connect with mobile devices, process user demand and product choices, and store and run this information across the cloud.

However, software companies are also utilizing SMAC stacks for IT to promote their own business, teach and train their employees, learn what customers desire, and connect software developers across various platforms.

Outsourced developers and engineers are already specialized in many elements of the SMAC stack, allowing for fast ramp-up and cheap implementation of SMAC for your software business. At the same time, they can create SMAC products that help other businesses utilize this technology.
