IDC sees 2010 as a year of transition where production data center environments truly let go of legacy computing paradigms and cross over to embrace more dynamic, policy-driven, automated approaches to deploying and consuming IT infrastructure. Customers will continue to focus on near-term ROI, but will also begin making long-term strategic decisions about client computing, operating systems and management software strategies. Expect 2010 to be the beginning of a new dynamic system infrastructure software marketplace dominated by the impacts of virtualization, cloud computing and green IT.

Join IDC’s enterprise systems management, enterprise virtualization software and system software analysts as they review the key industry developments expected for the next year, and hear their essential guidance and recommendations for vendors and end users striving for success in these evolving markets.

This Web conference will address the following key questions:

  • After a year of excessive hype around cloud computing, what will happen in 2010?
  • Who will win the hypervisor wars, or will the battlefield shift to a new space in the market?
  • What demarcation does Windows 7 make between old and new computing paradigms?
  • Will 2010 be a breakout year for client virtualization?
  • What is the relationship between application performance and virtualized and cloud deployments?
