Five emerging IT trends…how will they affect the media sector?

There are a ton of blogs, posts, stories and releases these days which offer opinions about evolutionary trends in anything and  everything. We read lots of them, and while some are amusingly weird, others are truly thought provoking.

This one struck me today: a list of “Five New Technologies That Will Change Enterprise Computing” published on the smartertechnology.com website.

Now, while it’s normally stories about media and media technology that occupy our reading time,  we’ve recently been thinking a lot about how broadcasting and other forms of electronic content delivery are actually forms of “Enterprise Computing”…and what that means for the media technology sector.

So the “5 new technologies” article is actually pretty relevant to all of us concerned with media and e-content.

It made us think.

See if it does the same for you (Some other good stuff on the site as well)

Please feel free to come back here and tell us what you think…
