First of all, half of the disruptive technologies have already be disruptive for quite some time. Virtualization, VoiP etc. Outsourcing Data Center is NOT a technology, it is a trend.
- Virtualization: quoting this from the page: "
And there is a growing collection of pre-built "images" from both Microsoft (NSDQ: MSFT) (which calls them virtual hard disks) and VMware (which uses the term virtual appliances) that can make setting up a new server or desktop OS easier than ever before.
Kusnetzky talks about new developments in virtualization that will allow a user to start a virtual machine in one location, suspend its operations, and then continue working from a different computer, exactly where things left off -- similar to how a laptop can wake up from sleep mode. "This means you can have a virtual desktop that is constantly running and accessible from anywhere in the world and yet be completely secure," he said."
It is not totally incorrect, that vision, but it does seem to suggest some practices that are not really where enterprises are waiting for. not in that manner.
2. Apple in the enteprise: Not a technology, but a trend
3. VoiP: Not anymore disruptor, more of an emerging trend
4. Outsourcing Data Center: So totally not a technology
5. "Presence" : also a trend, apps indeed disruptive.
Here they are.
