Brian M O’Curran November 15 2010 02:03:07 PMA wee bit of validation is always good for the soul. I spend more than average amount of talking about using collaboration and social media to advance business goals. An e-mail went around (a couple times actually) yesterday highlighting what Gartner considers strategic for 2011 and beyond. I found it excellent reading. Not surprisingly, they talk about the importance of new forms of communications and collaboration both inside and beyond the traditional enterprise. The technologies from last years predictions making this years list:
|Cloud Computing |
Social Communications and Collaboration
Mobile Applications and Media Tablets
Storage class memory
New to the Gartner list for 2011 are the following 5 technologies:
|Social Analysis |
Fabric-Based Infrastructure and Computing
It feels like IBM's on the right track. I sense we're doing the right things. I know it's making a difference for our customers. Lotusphere is just around the corner. There's a great deal of focus on solving business challenges with collaboration. Will you join us?
