Every decade we see massive changes in the IT industry. In the 80s we saw desktop computing flourish, and progressed to a client server model in the 90s. Mobile computing grew quickly in 2000 and beyond. 2010 presents a variety of technologies that may deliver IT efficiencies on a grand scale. Technologies such as desktop virtualization, cloud computing, mobile application delivery and others may be game changers. What technologies are right for your organization? What is your decision making process? How can you capitalize on these for your organization?
