Business Technology Trends To Watch

There are a million and one 'lists' of various things on the Internet. Typically most of them do not have a ton of meaning to them, but I ran across one todayI really liked. The McKinsey Quarterly released their "Eight Business Technology Trends to Watch" list, and it has some good thoughts.

The list is also basically a summary of business books, as each trend has a "further reading" category that talks in more detail about the trend. Of particular interest and applicability to the data center (in my opinion) are #5 and #7. The trends are:

1. Distributing cocreation
2. Using consumers as innovators
3. Tapping into a world of talent
4. Extracting more value from interactions
5. Expanding the frontiers of automation
6. Unbundling production from delivery
7. Putting more science into management
8. Making businesses from information
