New trends in information technology and communication
Trends in information technology and communications are sometimes difficult to predict. However, the identification of several trends scale possible. Whether it’s a change in how to use the software by the people, like how to hire a business or paying for IT services, understand where the industry is going is an important part of IT planning .
Accelerating the acquisition of net books
“Small Business Trends” believes that the acquisition of netbook computers, far smaller than a very compact and efficient portable computers, continue during 2009 and 2010. The netbook offers a very long life for your battery and limited processing power. They are designed to run simple software such as web browsers and basic business productivity software. In many cases, they are designed to use another IT trend: hosted software. This is an application like Google Docs productivity suite of Google or the new productivity suite Microsoft Office included, also stayed anywhere.
Accelerating the acquisition of smartphones
Smartphones are cell phones that can also run software from other companies. Cell phones include the iPhone, Android-based phones such as the T-Mobile G1 Google, BlackBerry phones and manufactured by Palm. Smart phones usually require additional data plan. The service market research IDC said that smartphone sales were 7% of all mobile sales in 2007. In 2008, the percentage was 20%. The smartphone sales continue to rise, despite the overall decline in sales of phones.
Computer software and cloud hosted
The increased popularity hosted software when Microsoft entered the market with Microsoft Office stayed module. The hosted software running on a remote server, causing less of a burden on local computer systems. In many cases, as with the application package Google’s Docs, the data is stored in a configuration of “cloud” where data spanning multiple computers and servers, thus increasing the reliability of data storage because they are not simply stored on a hard disk.
Wireless and cellular networks
The Gartner research projects an increase in the use of wireless and cellular networks. Although the bandwidth requirements of server banks are too high to effectively use these technologies, it is believed that it will rise to the use of personal computers make cellular networks. This is due to increased availability of devices such as mobile Wi-Fi hotspots or points of Wi-Fi access that supports multiple users in a single cellular connection. It is also expected that devices like smart phones using public Wi-Fi for faster access to data to increase in number.
In an analysis of Gartner, is expected that many small and medium companies to lease a computing infrastructure to a company providing real-time. The companies will pay for their service and infrastructure needs of broadband per minute, instead of buying physical server boxes and pay for a broadband availability to accommodate peak usage.
