Heyllo People. How are you all doing? I hope great…
My blogging habits are getting erratic and yeah…I realize that I am not keeping my posts consistent, as I promised. But well…there’s a lot of stuff I’d been doing that kept me absolutely tied up to my desk. Work is work is work, after all.
But hey…I promise once again to be regular… I too don’t want to disappoint my readrs, you see…
Well…this time around, I am going to treat you with nuggets of gyan I collected from different articles, while roaming on the internet. Experts around the world huddle together, time and again to predict, analyze and suggest IT Trends to watch for in future. So this post is dedicated to Hot IT Trends in the coming days. I’ve stumbled upon these trends in bits and pieces and I am compiling all of it into a post for you guys.
According to Experts and analysts define 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 investment, or the risk of being late to adopt.
The hottest trends for 2008 include:
1. Unified Communications: Today, 20% of the installed base with PBX has migrated to IP telephony, but more than 80% are already doing trials of some form. Analysts expect the next three years to be the point at which the majority of companies implement this, the first major change in voice communications since the digital PBX and cellular phone changes in the 1970s and 1980s.
2. Business Process Modeling: Top-level process services must be defined jointly by a set of roles (which include enterprise architects, senior developers, process architects and/or process analysts). Some of those roles sit in a service oriented architecture center of excellence, some in a process center of excellence and some in both. The strategic imperative for 2008 is to bring these groups together. Analysts expect BPM suites to fill a critical role as a compliment to SOA development.
3. Metadata Management: Through 2010, organizations implementing both customer data integration and product integration and product information management will link these master data management initiatives as part of an overall enterprise information management (EIM) strategy. Metadata management is a critical part of a company’s information infrastructure. It enables optimization, abstraction and semantic reconciliation of metadata to support reuse, consistency, integrity and shareability…
4. Virtualization 2.0: Virtualization technologies can improve IT resource utilization and increase the flexibility needed to adapt to changing requirements and workloads. However, by themselves, virtualization technologies are simply enablers that help broader improvements in infrastructure cost reduction, flexibility and resiliency. With the addition of automation technologies – with service-level, policy-based active management – resource efficiency can improve dramatically, flexibility can become automatic based on requirements, and services can be managed holistically, ensuring high levels of resiliency…
5. Mashup & Composite Apps : By 2010, Web mashups will be the dominant model (80%) for the creation of composite enterprise applications. Mashup technologies will evolve significantly over the next five years, and application leaders must take this evolution into account when evaluating the impact of mashups and in formulating an enterprise mashup strategy.
