CEO Tim Cook opened Apple's worldwide developer conference 2012 this morning in San Francisco. The event sold out the Moscone West venue in 90 minutes, a clear indication that Apple's star is still rising rapidly. (Developers are the first to smell a slowdown in momentum and so are a good indicator of the future.)
Here are my quick impressions of what Apple's announcements mean for developers, hence for CIOs and the IT organization.
I would call this a developer tour de force. But what CIOs should really focus in on is the pace of innovation: these advances come only a year after Apple's last upgrades to this already-powerful software, hardware, and ecosystem. In a world where technology is embedded in how you do business, this is an important point.
