'Vendors are entering an interesting era with rampant collaboration and competition and these trends and technologies are helping to drive this,' said Bob Hayward, Vice President- Research for Springboard Research and the presenter of the 'Top Ten Trends in Enterprise IT' Webcast. 'These trends involve accessing, distributing, leveraging, and using information in new ways and that is creating revenue opportunities for vendors that are innovating with their customers,' Hayward added. 'Another macro trend we are seeing is that technology is moving more out of the sole domain of the technology department and is being democratized, with other parts of the business having the ability to make technology decisions,' explained Hayward. 'Trends like consumer technology's increasing influence, Software-as-a-Service, mobility, and Green IT are in demand from outside the IT department, which is creating opportunities for IT vendors to sell to business users, and broaden their marketing and sales approaches to more prospects than just the CIO.' Springboard's IT Trends Predictions Webcasts are focused on helping IT vendors and organizations gain a better understanding of the trends that can affect their organizations in the next 12 to 18 months. While not all-inclusive, our prediction reports focus on the ten leading trends that we feel will impact all industries and regions, and will require some level of awareness, understanding, and response by planners and managers.
