Gartner recognises key strategic technologies as – just about everything that can pay for research

Gartner releases its list of ‘Key Strategic Technologies for 2010’.

“Gartner defines a strategic technology as one with the potential for significant impact on the enterprise in the next three years. Factors that denote significant impact include a high potential for disruption to IT or the business, the need for a major dollar investment, or the risk of being late to adopt.” From press release, Gartner.com

The technologies are:

  • Cloud Computing
  • Advanced Analytics
  • Client Computing
  • IT for Green
  • Reshaping the Data Center
  • Social Computing
  • Security – Activity Monitoring
  • Flash Memory
  • Virtualization for Availability
  • Mobile Applications

So I guess Gartner wants to do paid research for any company that fits into any of these categories. Anything not included?

    They are all at it. Someone just sued Gartner for over $1 billion on grounds that they favour companies who pay them money.
