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?
