Why Read This Report

Today's technology trends may appear like only incremental changes compared with historic changes like ERP and the Internet, but Forrester believes that we are in the initial phases of a major technology innovation and growth wave called "IT everywhere." We are witnessing multiple trends that, when combined, will drive a dramatic change in technology adoption and use. Some of these trends — like X Internet, mobile, SOA, and BPM — have been around for a few years but are just gaining the footing required to launch them into enterprise use. Others — including Technology Populism, Digital Business Architecture, security and risk management, IT ecosystems, the Information Workplace, master data management, and Dynamic Business Applications — are just truly coming online. CIOs must continuously assess these trends to successfully navigate this new wave.
