Primetech Software – Top Ten Technologies 2008

Top Ten Technologies for 2008


The following top 10 technologies and trends that will be strategic for most

organizations in 2008.

1. Green IT

The focus of Green IT that came to the forefront in 2007 will accelerate and

expand in 2008. Consider potential regulations and have alternative plans

for data center and capacity growth. Regulations are multiplying and have

the potential to seriously constrain companies in building data centers, as

the impact on power grids, carbon emissions from increased use and other

environmental impacts are under scrutiny.

Some companies are emphasizing their social responsibility behavior, which

might result in vendor preferences and policies that affect IT decisions.

Scheduling decisions for workloads on servers will begin to consider power

efficiency as a key placement attribute

2. Unified Communications

Today, 20 per cent of the installed base with PBX has migrated to IP

telephony, but more than 80 per cent are already doing trials of some form.

Gartner analysts expect the next three years to be the point at which the

majority of companies implement this, the first major change in voice

communications since the digital PBX and cellular phone changes in the 1970s

and 1980s.

3. Business Process Modeling

Top-level process services must be defined jointly by a set of roles (which

include enterprise architects, senior developers, process architects and/or

process analysts). Some of those roles sit in a service oriented

architecture center of excellence, some in a process center of excellence

and some in both.

4. Metadata Management

Through 2010, organisations implementing both customer data and product

integration and product information management will link these master data

management initiatives as part of an overall enterprise information

management (EIM) strategy.

Metadata management is a critical part of a company’s information

infrastructure. It enables optimization, abstraction and semantic

reconciliation of metadata to support reuse, consistency, integrity and


5. Virtualisation 2.0

Virtualisation technologies can improve IT resource utilisation and increase

the flexibility needed to adapt to changing requirements and workloads.

However, by themselves, virtualisation technologies are simply enablers that

help broader improvements in infrastructure cost reduction, flexibility and


6. Mashup & Composite Apps

By 2010, Web mashups will be the dominant model (80 per cent) for the

creation of composite enterprise applications. Mashup technologies will

evolve significantly over the next five years, and application leaders must

take this evolution into account when evaluating the impact of mashups and

in formulating an enterprise mashup strategy.

7. Web Platform & WOA

Software as a service (SaaS) is becoming a viable option in more markets and companies must evaluate where service based delivery may provide value in 2008-2010. Meanwhile Web platforms are emerging which provide service-based access to infrastructure services, information, applications, and business processes through Web based “cloud computing” environments.

8. Computing Fabric

A computing fabric is the evolution of server design beyond the interim

stage, blade servers, that exists today. The next step in this progression

is the introduction of technology to allow several blades to be merged

operationally over the fabric, operating as a larger single system image

that is the sum of the components from those blades. The fabric-based server of the future will treat memory, processors, and I/O cards as components in a pool, combining and recombining them into particular arrangements to suits the owner’s needs. For example a large server can be created by combining 32 processors and a number of memory modules from the pool, operating together over the fabric to appear to an operating system as a single fixed server.

9. Real World Web

The term “real world Web” is informal, referring to places where information

from the Web is applied to the particular location, activity or context in

the real world. It is intended to augment the reality that a user faces, not

to replace it as in virtual worlds.

It is used in real-time based on the real world situation, not prepared in

advance for consumption at specific times or researched after the events

have occurred. For example in navigation, a printed list of directions from

the Web do not react to changes, but a GPS navigation unit provides

real-time directions that react to events and movements; the latter case is

akin to the real-world Web of augmented reality. Now is the time to seek out new applications, new revenue streams and improvements to business process that can come from augmenting the world at the right time, place or situation.

10. Social Software

Through 2010, the enterprise Web 2.0 product environment will experience

considerable flux with continued product innovation and new entrants,

including start-ups, large vendors and traditional collaboration vendors.

Expect significant consolidation as competitors strive to deliver robust Web

2.0 offerings to the enterprise. Nevertheless social software technologies

will increasingly be brought into the enterprise to augment traditional



The market analysts presented above findings, defines a strategic technology as one with the potential for significant impact on the enterprise in the next three years. Factors that denote significant impact include a high potential for disruption to IT or the business, the need for a major dollar investment, or the risk of being late to adopt. Sometimes the decision will be to do nothing with a particular technology. In other cases it will be to continue investing in the technology at the current rate. In still other cases, the decision may be to test/pilot or more aggressively adopt/deploy the technology. The important thing is to ask the question and proactively plan.”
