There’s been a positive change in the enterprise computing business of late; more product announcements truly are focused on how technology can help a company do business.
I wish I could go back in time and figure out when the IT sector made the transition from being product driven to concept focused. I guess it’s like trying to figure out when we stopped being a kid or when we realize that we are “old”.
When it comes to a “concept” rather than “product” focus, it’s a nice change.
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away (farewell, Princess Leia), every technology publication and analyst firm looked back at this time of year, and produced a list of the top products of the old year.
