      End user devices in play
    • Google Europe boss John Herlihy says that desktop computers will be “irrelevant” in three years. Instead, mobile devices will be the main way people interact with the internet.
      Smartphones
      8/11/2010

      Gartner predicts that the number of smart phones in use globally will skyrocket from about 200 million to 1.3 billion in 2013
    • iPads in Corporations are filling a need for:
      Agile workplaces in a volatile, complex world
      a large enterprise manages almost one trillion business transactions.
      business changes have become much more rapid, extreme and interconnected. The problem is: the resources we accomplish work with – our employees, business processes, capital assets and tools – are often too static and rigid to adapt quickly enough.

    • Tablet shipments will hit the 11 million mark in 2011, with the iPad making up a large portion of that.

      iPad notes
    • Mobility needs – needing to be everywhere with access to everything
      Capabilities expanded with
      SaaS
      Cloud
      Virtualization
      The promise of broadband everywhere –
      WiMAX development in the next 12 months will show, there has been a lot going on behind the scenes to make WiMAX the next great broadband technology, at the very least
      3G HSPA technology — which already has a strong foundation in place in the cellular networks across the globe — is attempting to beat WiMAX to the punch with roaming wireless cards and fixed wireless modems that can bring broadband to rural areas and other places with little or no broadband
      Factors driving change
      8/11/2010
      OC CIO Roundtable - August 2010
    • Cleaner and greener technology consciousness –
      Green use, green disposal, green design, and green manufacturing
      Gartner maintains that the PC manufacturing process accounts for 70 % of the natural resources used in the life cycle of a PC Therefore, the biggest contribution to green computing usually is to prolong the equipment's lifetime
      Desktop computer power supplies (PSUs) are generally 70–75% efficient, dissipating the remaining energy as heat. An industry initiative called 80 PLUS certifies PSUs that are at least 80% efficient; typically these models are drop-in replacements for older, less efficient PSUs of the same form factor. As of July 20, 2007, all new Energy Star 4.0-certified desktop PSUs must be at least 80% efficient.[

      Gartner Highlights Key Predictions for IT Organizations and User 2010 and beyond
    • The prognosticators are divided on this:
      For as much ground as mobile devices have gained on desktops, the experts agree that the desktop isn’t going to fade away completely anytime soon. Where resource-intensive tasks (CAD, engineering, content creation, video, high-end gaming, etc.) are concerned, high-end desktops will remain viable due to their comparably affordable pricing, processing power, and upgradeability.
      Th Internet—“which really is the cloud”—combined with mobile apps “is changing the dynamics of computing. Most mainstream computing applications are tied to a network or the Internet, but with advancements in silicon and software, a PC is no longer required for most of those applications,” he says. “This has a huge potential impact for not just desktops, but all PCs”.
