If you wait patiently enough the future will arrive

So is 2008 the year we’ve been waiting for? Well, according to Enterprise Management Associates (EMA), many of the hot topics this year has in store for us are exactly those I’ve been striving to achieve in various organisations over the past ten years.

IT Management Trends to Watch for in 2008 lists such fantastic, yet common sense items as:

  • data centre automation (DCA)
  • virtualisation
  • configuration management database (CMDB)
  • automated IT service management (ITSM)
  • governance and risk management

So my question is … “if IT infrastructure managers have been able to ignore the massive cost savings they could have accrued during the past few years by capitalising on these techniques, why are they going to suddenly turn around in 2008, see the light, and start doing it all?”

Perhaps EMA’s various research tracks for 2008 will help shed light on golden opportunities for us all

Thanks to Uttam at Locuz for pointing out the press release
