IT & Network Infrastructure : How Facebook, Cloud, Mobility Are Changing Enterprise IT
With the new year just under way, predictions for 2010 are commonplace. However, Gartner is going a few years farther into the future, taking a look at the major computing trends that will continue developing as far out as 2015. And given what we see today, those predictions shouldn't come as a surprise. For example, as virtualization and cloud computing grow, fewer businesses are going to see the need for owning their own hardware. In addition, it won't take long for mobile phones to outpace PCs in sales. Social media will also be an increasingly important factor, with a rapidly growing Facebook leading the way. Green IT is a growing concern for both IT vendors and their customers as well.
