|Why Business Programmers Should Care About Embedded Systems||Author|
If you are a business programmer, embedded systems will drive every aspect of the enterprise over the next ten years. The fact that we are able to measure things and movements and environments that we couldn't measure before is going to create mountains of data that somebody is going to want to mine. That is going to create network and bottlenecks that somebody is going to make money solving. Somebody is going to want to see that data displayed and an Excel spread sheet just won't cut it. Somebody is going to want to see relationships that will make your database gag.
