Technological convergence provides a way to merge different areas of technology to perform tasks better and more efficiently. With technological convergence, industrial boundaries are becoming blurred, allowing service providers to offer services in multiple markets with better results. This paper highlights a number of areas where technological convergence has emerged, including medical care, nanotechnology, social media, smart phones, emails, printing, telecommunications, data storage, and network virtualization. Along with advantages of technological convergence, some challenges requiring closer attention from various stakeholders are discussed.
