"Big data is being collected everywhere that we go on the internet, mobile is expanding throughout the world with more people being on mobile than desktops, and social is changing how we do business," Ryan explains.
"I think these are hot markets because they are all emerging technology opportunities. They are changing how we interact and how society moves ahead," he adds.
