The New Year e-learning goodies are rolling

Colored-GoodiesA Very Happy New Year to you! 2014 is expected to be a good year for IT industry that is still recovering from the slow down in 2013.

Forrester is forecasting good IT growth in 2014 with focus on mobile, cloud and analytics. What this means for development teams is the need for new skills to cater to the hungry business users. I called the business users “hungry” for a specific reason. The business users are now demanding consumer grade experiences on multiple devices as they have become accustomed to the great user experience they offer. This hunger will need to be satiated by the development teams of today.

Telerik is ready to help you take on these new challenges with new products and services in the new year.
