Gartner outlines its list at ITxpo
- Cloud Computing
- Servers: Beyond Blades
- Web-Oriented Architectures
- Enterprise Mashups
- Specialized Systems - appliances
- Social Software and Social Networking
- Unified Communications
- Business Intelligence
- Green IT
So, I went back and compared it to trends I have been cataloging on my New Florence innovation blog.
At the composite 50,000 foot level it is tough to argue with Gartner's list though but I am surprised Mobility and Telepresence are not in the list. It could be also be semantics as they may put telepresence as an application under Unified Communications.
Also, by vertical you would get very different answers. So, in healthcare, sensors of different kinds would be in the top 10. In a number of product centric industries nanotechnology and visualization technologies would make the list. Also, if you slice by size of enterprise I would argue SaaS would be high on list for many SMEs.
