Ten Technologies You Can’t Afford to Ignore in 2010

December 8, 2009 at 9:32 am 1 comment

Gartner analyst David Cearley gave some advices how to deal with the  top trends coming in 2010 that companies should incorporate into their strategic planning, if not necessarily their own computer systems.

The full list of 10:

  1. cloud computing
  2. advanced analytics
  3. client computing
  4. IT for green
  5. reshaping the data center
  6. social computing
  7. security–activity monitoring
  8. flash memory
  9. virtualization for availability
  10. mobile applications.

If I compare these technologies and trends with the potential investment cases we are working on or even with the entire deal flow we are receiving I can see similarities.

    Interesting list – it covers the promising technologies pretty well. In my opinion, the arrows in the Gartner figure nicely bring forth the top-2 über technologies in the list – Cloud computing and Virtualization (multiple arrows coming in and out of those).

    I’d think that mobile applications may become more important after 4G is deployed in the next couple of years. Right now, they are plenty of inane apps, and serious gaming isn’t coming to mobiles before the networks improve their pings!
