Gartner’s Top 10 Technologies for 2009
Social Software and Social Networking
Web Oriented Architecture
Servers – Beyond Blades
As usual, the list contains broad concepts that are no surprise like “Green IT”, some hot technologies like “Enterprise Mashups”, and some cryptic references that required further reading of Gartner’s material to understand. Sadly, no mention of Database Sharding, although the general area is covered well by Web Oriented Architecture – the driving force behind Database Sharding.
