Innovations In Reach
eWeek Labs examines 12 technologies that corporate IT must watch in 2001.Stanley kubricks 1968 film, "2001: A Space Odyssey," showed a future that seemed distant enough to give us time to invent it. Sure enough (despite laggard progress into space), weve already grown used to everyday encounters with many of the movies once-futuristic concepts, from handheld devices to supercomputers. In the spirit of the holistic vision of Kubrick and collaborator Arthur C. Clarke, we find that no single development dominates eWeek Labs expectations for IT innovation in 2001. We arent even tempted to propose a facile label such as "Year of Wireless" or "Year of Convergence," though many such labels will surely vie for enterprise mind share.
Instead, we see continued impressive progress on many complementary fronts in this 2001 tech odyssey.
