Monitoring IT trends is no trivial task. After all, the deluge is considerable.
Every day, single-shingle IT cognoscenti blog, tweet, and podcast their thoughts about the future of IT. Every week, vendors — the supply side of the tech community — release whitepapers and forecasts about where they think (or hope you will think) technology is going. Every month, consultancies, research firms, the press — the tech community’s services side — adjust and amplify annual technology predictions. Every quarter, government agencies, think tanks, academic centers — the administrative/regulatory side — publish thought leadership pieces about what comes next.
