ZapThink's Take on 2010

,----[ Quote ]
| In 2010, we predict that:
| * Open Source SOA infrastructure will 
| dominate â Lack of interest by venture 
| capitalists and consolidation by the Big 
| Five IT infrastructure providers will 
| result in such lack of choice for SOA 
| infrastructure solutions that end users 
| will flock to open source alternatives. As 
| a result, 2010 will be the year that open 
| source SOA infrastructure finally gains 
| enough adoption that it will be on the 
| short list for most large SOA 
| implementations. Weâll see (finally) a 
| robust open source SOA registry/repository 
| offering, SOA management solutions, SOA 
| governance offerings, and SOA 
| infrastructure solutions that rival 
| commercial ones in terms of performance, 
| reliability, and support.

,----[ Quote ]
| Acquire open source skills
| Open source software is gaining steam among 
| enterprise companies that find the 
| flexibility and low cost appealing and now 
| can pick and choose among commercial 
| support packages. Certified skills and 
| experience in the realm of open source 
| packages are already on recruiters' radar, 
| according to IT talent experts, who report 
| that companies in 2010 will seek candidates 
| with open source skills.
| "We are seeing a ton of demand for skills 
| around open source technologies and 
| frameworks. Demand for Python, Ruby on 
| Rails and PHP development skills far 
| exceeds the number of people available with 
| skills," says Michael Kirven, co-founder 
| and principal of IT resourcing firm 
| Bluewolf.



Will Apple and Microsoft Join Forces To Fight Google?

,----[ Quote ]
| Apple and Google have historically been
| very friendly. But in recent months, the
| tenor of that relationship has changed.
| Apple rejected Google Voice for the
| iPhone. And now it appears that the
| relationship may get a bit cooler with all
| the talk of a Google phone.
