Analysts Speculate IT Tech Trends for 2008

hat are the experts predicting for tech trends in 2008? At the
recent Gartner Symposium/ITxpo held last October in Orlando, more
than 6000 senior business and IT strategists from virtually all
major industries gathered for the industry's largest conference
to gain the latest advice on driving profits and performance
with IT. Attendees rely on the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo for their
annual planning and to gain insight into how their organizations
can best use IT to address business challenges and improve
operational efficiency.

Reflecting Gartner's very latest research findings, the analysts
projected the 10 technologies likely to play a 'strategic' role
in 2008. Gartner defines a strategic technology as one "with the
potential for significant impact on the enterprise in the next
three years." In addition Gartner also looks at "high potential
for disruption to IT or the business, the need for a major dollar
investment, or the risk of being late to adopt."
