BriefingsDirect Analysts Take Pulse of New Era in IT: Flat Line Stasis or Next Renaissance? Welcome to the latest BriefingsDirect Analyst Insights Edition, Vol. 41. Our latest topic centers on the next era of information technology (IT). Suddenly, cloud computing is the dominant buzzword of the day, but the current confluence of trends includes much more. There is business process modeling, business intelligence, complex event processing, service-oriented architecture, software as a service, Web-oriented architecture, and even Enterprise 2.0. How do all of these relate? Or if they don't relate, is there a common theme? Is there an overriding uber direction for IT that we need to consider? The cloud computing moniker just doesn't include enough and doesn't bring us to the next stage. In the words of Huey Lewis, we need a "new drug." Join our panel of guests and analysts to help dig into the new era of IT: Jim Kobielus, senior analyst at Forrester Research; Tony Baer, senior analyst at Ovum; Brad Shimmin, senior analyst, Current Analysis; Joe McKendrick, independent analyst and ZDNet blogger, and Ron Schmelzer, senior analyst at ZapThink. Our discussion is hosted and moderated by BriefingsDirect's Dana Gardner. Read a full transcript of the discussion at Charter Sponsor: Active Endpoints. Sponsor: TIBCO Software.
