Technologies to watch for in 2008

Date February 18, 2008

Been long since not blogged being busy with MCA Exams. Now finally done! Ever since they start of year 2008, have been wanting to post about thats coming in the year 2008. We have had a great 2007 and moving ahead, again this year I would now like to point out some of the technology updates we will be seeing this year. Instead of posting all at once as done last year, I will now keep updating about the details about each technology over a series.

Gartner Identifies the Top 10 Strategic Technologies for 2008, which are Green IT, Unified Communications, Business Process Modeling, Metadata Management, Virtualization 2.0, Mashup & Composite Apps., Web Platform & WOA, Computing Fabric, Real World Web, Social Software.

Soon we will discuss more about them as well as few more technological enhancement happening this year, however two of my major pick technologies Unified Communications and Virtualization are the once that will have my eye on.

The Windows Server 2008, now includes Hyper-V already released to manufacturing, will be available for purchase to new customers on March 1. Microsoft Volume Licensing customers with active Microsoft Software Assurance coverage or an Enterprise Agreement will be able to download the server software toward the end of February as part of the joint Microsoft SQL Server 2008 and Visual Studio 2008 “Heroes Happen Here” launch event. So if you are in Bangalore (March 4th), Mumbai (March 5th) or New Delhi (March 7th); do make a point to attend the grand launch of Windows Server 2008, SQL Server 2008, and Visual Studio 2008. Being an MVP on Windows Server, I will surely be posting few articles specifically on Windows Server 2008.
