Cambridge, Mass. — A great deal of technology change is underway, although none seems to be an ultimate transformer of IT the way the Internet or ERP suites were, according to a new Forrester Research Inc. report. “The Emerging Technology Trends That CIOs Should Care About,” states that we are in the early years of “IT everywhere”—a new 16-year cycle of innovation and growth that follows the previous cycle of networked computing for enterprise applications and the Internet. Because we are in transition, we are still digesting the networked computing technologies and just barely seeing the earliest versions of the new IT everywhere technologies. Several technology trends that got their start during the “networked computing” wave will continue their digestion cycle during the just-starting “IT everywhere” phase.

The report lists service-oriented architecture (SOA), business process management (BPM), mobility and X Internet as trends that will drive a dramatic change in technology adoption and use.
