CIO focus in 2010 - Light-weight Services
I agree with the results of the Gartner study reviewed in this Infoworld article. Small, very focused projects are getting prioritized. Our 2010 roadmap is filled with smaller projects.

According to the Gartner survey, the top 10 technology priorities for 2010 are (our top 5 are in bold):
  1. virtualization
  2. cloud computing
  3. "Web 2.0" collaborative technologies
  4. networking and VoIP
  5. analytics and business intelligence
  6. mobile
  7. data and document storage and management
  8. services and service-oriented architecture
  9. security technologies
  10. IT management
They do not explicitly mention it, but we have seen an uptick in the adoption of SAAS products that can be deployed quickly. We are more focused on SAAS over SOA.
