With the global GDP surpassing 100 Trillion USD within the next 20 years, companies, organizations and governments are continuously applying pressure on the IT industry to improve systems, software and personnel to aggressively advance innovation, business growth, investment and economic development. The IT Professional lacks a common voice and their best practices, standards and career roadmaps are not employed consistently around the globe. IT Professionals look to augment their job roles, gain leadership experience and continuously improve their careers through their connections with other IT Professionals. They constantly seek knowledge on computing trends, technologies, standards, governing legislation and industry certifications so they can advance in their careers and increase importance within their organizations.
