As 2009 sets itself to unfold, major IT trends are starting to shape our future.
In a nutshell we should be watching:
- Green IT
- Expense Cutting
- Cloud Computing
- Mobile Computing
- Leaning Architecture
- Social Software, Enterprise 2.0 and Communities
It’s going to be tough and only those who can go beyond their fears and control it will be able to seize opportunities in front of us. Yes IT will be impacted, but what is a better time to make the tough decisions you’ve been reluctant to make?
I found it very interesting that in this context the eTask.it initiative, referred to by a friend of mine part of the management team there. In a nutshell, they describe themselves as “the first IT collaborative system” addressing IT staffing via community enabled sourcing.
Cloud Computing can also deliver Service as a Service, kind of funny, or maybe more appropriately Service on the Cloud as an important part of the Cloud Computing trend.
Good luck to them. More than yesterday, lesser than tomorrow, bet on the Web 2.0 for your future.
