Top 10 Technologies - (trendwatch)

Last year it was Linux. This year it's open source. In 2006 we heard about pervasive computing; this year it's called "ubiquitous computing." Yes, Gartner Inc.'s annual list of the most popular strategic technologies includes some repeats. But Web 2.0 is new this year. Check out the top 10 for what's new -- and what's not.

  1. Open source
  2. Virtualization
  3. Information access (i.e., contextual navigation)
  4. Ubiquitous computing
  5. Service registries and repositories
  6. Business process management suites
  7. Enterprise information management
  8. Web 2.0: AJAX-rich clients
  9. Web 2.0: Mashup composite model
  10. Collective intelligence (i.e., user-based innovation)
