As more and more millennials join the modern workforce, they bring a whole new set of expectations. They bring expectations for the workplace, for their peers, and for technology. And with these expectations, they bring an entire paradigm shift. They live in a new world that revolves around innovation, agility, and always on technology within a new universe that revolves around the user.

This new paradigm has been met with new technology trends to accommodate it. New concepts like the commercialization of IT, social networking, the Internet of Things (IoT), and mobility have been led by a new generation of technologists and technology enthusiasts. With this new generation, technology is being woven into everything that we do. The IoT connects us to the world around us, social media connects us to one another, and technologies like wearable devices may even connect us more to ourselves (as we learn about our own patterns of behavior). All of this may seem overwhelming and unmanageable to traditional IT teams...but it's not. New technology is directly correlated to new opportunity for IT teams. But, when managing the machines used by millennials, IT has to be willing to do things a bit differently than in the past.
