InfoWorld has published their “2006 Technology of the Year Awards.”
The Technology of the Year Awards look forward, not back. The goal: to identify those products most likely to shake up the IT establishment in 2006 and beyond. All 46 award recipients, spread over 45 critical technology categories, meet that mandate. They’ve proved themselves in the InfoWorld labs and in enterprise networks and datacenters, then survived months of additional poking, prodding, debate, and deliberation, courtesy of the Test Center experts. The winners are truly the cream of the crop … and a harbinger of good things to come for the new year.
