Gartner is trying to help us all out with our strategy again, or maybe this is an early “next year prediction” article. Either way Gartner’s top 10 strategic technologies have been published: here. To be honest, my biggest surprise is that there isn’t something newer in here. They seem to have selected only technologies that are relatively mature, and some of them are what I would consider to be positively mainstream. I suppose that in recommending strategy to major corporate customers they are not going to select technology on the bleeding edge. This selection is more “look what you should have been doing this year” than “get on this band wagon now”.
