Technology: Status Quo Spoilers

By Dick Weisinger

Predictions flooded from Gartner’s recent ITExpo, maybe not too surprising:

Microsoft Vista is collapsing under it’s own weight of complexity and moving parts
Google’s aim at the enterprise is unconventional, like a “fog rolling in”, capturing market share slowly and not head-to-head with Microsoft and IBM
– IT is moving towards ‘mass production’ and ‘mega data centers‘ will become ‘platforms for industrialization’
– Analysts can’t agree if
Green IT is battling ‘myth’ with greenwashing or if they are true heros in the fight against global warming
– A third wave of computers is coming, one where computers are imbedded everywhere and totally surround us

Gartner also made predictions about what they see as the most disruptive technologies. These include:
– Multicore processors
– cloud computing
– user interfaces
– social networks/social software
– Web mashups
