10 Enterprise Products That Will Shape IT in 2011

by Eric Lundquist
It's easy to pick the best products of 2010. Hindsight is 20/20. And there are plenty of lists out there already, including several lists right here at eWEEK. But what about picking the top products for the New Year? Here, eWEEK's Eric Lundquist takes a long gaze into the technology crystal ball to see what products will shape the IT world in 2011. Some of the examples include trends that have already started, such as cloud computing, ubiquitous virtualization in the data center, and the growing need for mobility in the enterprise, especially as tablets become more popular with executives and employees alike. While those seem obvious, what about the growing need for true unified communications? Is 2011 the time when your business gets rid of Microsoft PowerPoint for good? Then there is always the ongoing need for security, especially in the wake of what happened to Gawker and how WikiLeaks showed that any sensitive data can end up on the Web. So, how does your list compare to Lundquist's product predictions? Read on to find out and remember to keep score.
