2010 represents the year that cost is king: technologies such as virtualization, Carrier Ethernet, SIP trunking, colocation, and application delivery optimization saw tremendous growth as IT managers continue to balance the need for greater support for an increasingly distributed and mobile workforce with the need to reduce infrastructure and operating costs. Meanwhile, new technologies such as social computing entered the mainstream as the under-30 workforce changes the way organizations think about collaboration.
