Convergence is a topic heavily discussed in the computer trade literature, as well as on line, and in newspaper and magazine articles.
As with many new ideas, the definition of the term "Convergence" will vary with the author of the article.
Basically, convergence is any or all of the following:
The on-going merger or combination of several different technologies and industries into something new,
Possibly even a completely new technology,
A dynamic new Business process or activity, or
Perhaps even a new industry,
Which has one or more selected characteristics of its predecessor technologies.

It's a big and important subject, so be prepared to spend some time with it.
At DELTA MAX, we spend all our time with it.
Convergence involves creation of something new.
This newly created process, technology, or industry will not necessarily behave in a similar fashion to any one of its predecessor technologies or industries.
Even more, it will likely have characteristics that none of its predecessors or industries possess. Thus, it usually involves new paradigms of thinking.
A simple example: Interactive Movies in theatres, where viewers choose which outcome of several that they would like to see presented on the screen ("Clue", for example.) The movie experience here is entirely different than a normal feature film. Audiences are polled electronically from their seats, and the majority rule. Only a limited number of outcomes are available for choice. Thus, Interactive Movies are neither Movies or Interactive in toto.
Another obvious illustration is the television and computer convergence. Where today's computers stop and television monitors begin is no longer at an easily defined border. In the near future, every room in your home will have monitors on the walls, accessible and changeable at your whim as you navigate your home. One moment, a picture of Aunt Mary, the next, an Angel baseball game, then a web browser screen, or all at once.
You will speak normally, and command the wall screen to show what you wish to see. Or, as in the film "Minority Report", each wall monitor will read you via your eyes or other physical gestalt, and profile itself to your wishes, switching from those of your wife who was 5 seconds ahead of you down the hall. The possibilities are boundless, and the issues immense.
What this illustrates is significant: merely combining successful technologies into new products or user services does not guarantee user satisfaction and business success automatically. The resulting new Convergent technology has characteristics which need to be designed into the product to produce user acceptance. Some combinations will work, but, most won't.
Most new computer applications and or technologies, particularly those involving business processes on the Internet, multi-media, and remote computing, are heavily dependent upon effective Convergence for their success.
DELTA MAX provides guidance for companies entering into Convergent activities or business processes.
When you apply computer technology to a business or administrative process, you create a Convergence, and we can help you create a successful one.
