What Enterprises Can Learn from 2011's Major Events and Surprises


Rather than make predictions for 2012, which are everywhere right now, I want to look back at some of the surprising events of 2011.

I think it’s worth considering what happened that wasn’t expected and what these things might tell us about the information technology market. Here, in no particular order, are the most important ones I see.

Nice round up, I see RIM going bankrupt in 2012. It's not cool with the kids anymore and just doesn't embrace apps. Just look at the playbook to see what a fail that was. When Amazon released FIRE it basically made the 500USD price tag useless beside the 200USD FIRE.

In regards to social media being out of the bag, I'm dealing with the IT department with one of my clients and the push to allow them to use twitter is so backwards. They won't allow access (yet!) to the network even though their press team needs it to interact with journalists. Bad company culture.

Very Best, Filip
