Enterprise IT

[via Sadagopan] Robert Metcalfe says: “From my point of view, there’s little new in IT, particularly in enterprise software. Video might take Computerworld readers by surprise. There are three major forces – video, mobility and embedded – all three of which are nipping at the edge of IT. Video burdens IP networks, and they haven’t quite seen the value proposition, but CIOs will eventually have to embrace it instead of fighting it. For mobility, the platform of choice is increasingly cell phones and less desktops. Cell phones are now a platform for enterprise applications. Embedded software, such as RFID, hasn’t quite made it yet. To make enterprise applications more aware of inventory or the supply chain through RFID and sensor networks – of the three things, this is the furthest away from impacting CIOs.”
