SMB Technology Trends For 2011

ITBusinessEdge: SMB Technology Trends For 2011

There are few big surprises in the trends Paul Mah highlights from a recent analyst report: smartphones replacing fixed lines, laptops continuing to be important, social media marketing growing more prevalent.

“The number of 2011 ‘trends’ and ‘forecasts’ released in recent weeks meant that I never felt the need to come up with something similar. It doesn’t mean I don’t read them myself, though. So when analyst Jack Gold of J.Gold Associates – who is often quoted in media reports on business technology – put together his list of technology trends for 2011, I pored through his predictions with interest.

I thought a number of points mentioned in the report were relevant to SMBs, hence my decision to highlight them here today. And yes, I have also added my thoughts on their possible influence on your tech deployments and budget allocation for this year. The full report is entitled, ’15 Technology Trends for 2011,’ and can be downloaded here (.pdf).”
