Gartner’s Top Ten

If you haven’t yet heard of Garner, Inc., they are a well-known and well-respected research and advisory company focused on information technology.  When they talk, IT listens; they may not agree, but they definitely listen.

Last October, Gartner analyst David Cearley gave us his top ten list –  “Technology You Can’t Afford to Ignore.”  They are:

  1. Cloud computing
  2. Advanced analytics
  3. Client computing
  4. IT for green
  5. Reshaping the data center
  6. Social computing
  7. Security – active monitoring
  8. Flash memory
  9. Virtualization for availability
  10. Mobile applications

Stephen Shankland of CNET provides a quick overview of each of these trends – complete with graphics!
