The Enterprise Architects (EA) should build a list of technologies to watch, for Chief Information Officers (CIOs), to use to educate business peers and influence their strategy. Such a list would also ensure that the CIOs, are not pulled down by other executives using case studies of the successful implementation of new technology at other firms, according to research firm Forrester.

While making their lists, the firms should bring in their own specific context, from industry to market dynamics to cultural factors, as filters to determine which technologies could be significant to them, reports Silicon.com. For instance, mobile applications on smartphones might not be important to a manufacturer, though they might sound interesting to a professional services firm, stated the ‘The Top 15 Technology Trends EA Should Watch’ report by Forrester.

The research firm also published a list of the top 15 technology trends the enterprise architects should watch, with ‘real-time’ business intelligence, packaged applications that incorporate software as a service (SaaS) and ‘people-centric collaboration platforms’ featuring high on their list of priorities.

The other technologies that will be increasingly important over the next few years include policy based Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), mobile applications and business processes, cloud based platforms, web 2.0 enabled business process management, and the wider use of telepresence and client virtualization.
