As I mentioned in a recent blog posting, I’m in the process of shifting my “serious” blogs over to this website, from their previous home at www.yourdonreport.com The old site will continue to get updates at random intervals, but mostly about non-technical topics, like the photography that I dabble in, and random social/political commentaries.
One of the quasi-serious series of postings that I want to make available here is a 15-part series on the “future of IT,” which I started in mid-May, and continued posting through the first week of June. It was prompted by a request by one of my clients to give a presentation to its IT staff on the topic. Here’s what I ended up with:
- Whither IT – part 1
- Whither IT, part 2 – the importance of advancements in hardware
- Whither IT, part 3 – Three cheers for Moore’s Law
- Whither IT, part 4 – Faster computers
- Whither IT, part 5 – Cheaper computers
- Whither IT, part 6 – More consequences of cheaper computers
- Whither IT, part 7 – Smaller computers
- Whither IT, part 8 – More storage capacity
- Whither IT, part 9 – Faster networks
- Whither IT, part 10 – What if technology improvements only came from software?
- Whither IT, part 11 – The future, from a social perspective
- Whither IT, part 12 – Resistance to change
- Whither IT, part 13 – Social/cultural changes
- Whither IT, part 14 – Generational trends
- Whither IT, part 15 – So how do we find the future?
