Just published: the Gartner IT1 2012 planning guides [customer access only, although you can get a very good sneak peek into our thinking from looking at some of the tables of content].
The overall theme, perhaps to no surprise, is summarized as “the macro trends of volatility, multiplicity, versatility, and mobility underlie much of Gartner’s IT1 coverage in 2012.“
Besides the “2012 Planning Guide: Security and Risk Management,” those who work in my areas of coverage will also enjoy “2012 Planning Guide: Application Delivery Strategies,” “2012 Planning Guide: Data Management,” and “2012 Planning Guide: Mobile Strategies.” There are several others around collaboration, data center, identity, and cloud. My suggestion to IT professionals is to read at least the recommendations in each.
It looks like everyone’s gearing up for an interesting 2012 research calendar. And because nothing is set in stone until we start to write, we always welcome input on where to look next.
