What’s in store for the Web in 2009? Six predictions

The Rivet Logic Blogs

Looking back on 2008, we’ve seen several trends in the web space. The web has transformed from a place to look for information to a place to share information. Social networking tools and applications exploded, with the release of the Facebook Platform and Google’s OpenSocial. Enterprises also saw an increase in the adoption of collaboration and social networking tools such as blogs, wikis, and LinkedIn.  Mobile web usage became increasing mainstream with Apple’s iPhone 3G and Google’s Android. Open source software gained popularity as the economy took a downturn.

So what’s in store for 2009? Here are just a few things to watch out for in the coming year…

  • Semantic web - what good is information if it can’t be organized? contextual web utilizing semantic technologies will be huge
  • Web 2.x - in preparation for Web 3.0, the new wave of “intelligent web”, we will see an increased adoption of technologies such as semantic web, OpenID, and SaaS to name a few
  • Cloud computing - will cloud computing gain enough momentum to be the next big thing?
  • Facebook domination continues
  • Open source continues to gain popularity within the enterprise
  • Friend synchronization tools - to help ease the information overload from the social media revolution.

By automating or outsourcing some of these pieces, such as databases, infrastructure, and networks, your team can instead focus on development, testing, and deployment. Further, organizations that focus their attention on these areas can eventually move to a test-driven development structure that condenses several long phases into a faster, more efficient process. This methodology has a name, of course: Continuous delivery. As Jones pointed out at CloudEXPO, continuous delivery allows developers to trim the fat off tasks and gives them more time to focus on the individual parts of the process. But remember-implementing this methodology requires organizations to offload management of databases, infrastruct...
