Gartner Research., a division of Gartner Inc., the world's leading information technology research and advisory company, has coined the term “The Nexus of Forces” to describe four forces — mobile, cloud, social, and information. These forces have converged in a powerful way that has led to a new era of computing. They identify three disruptive vendors (Amazon, Apple, and Google) who have taken advantage of the Nexus of Forces to create innovative products.
