Abstract

The quest for more efficiency and security is reflected in the economy as a whole, but especially in the product and process innovations in information and communication technology (ICT). We examine the ten concepts considered to have the brightest prospects in the business segment in terms of their potential to gain widespread use during this decade. Out of these, the three most promising ICT approaches are biometrics, open-source software and radio tagging (RFID).

Keywords: Information, Internet telephony (VoIP), advanced mobile radio technology (WLAN, UMTS, WiMax), biometrics, quantum cryptography, Model Driven Archi-tecture (MDA), decentralised storage (ILM), decentralised data process-ing (grid computing), open-source software, outsourcing, and radio tag-ging (RFID)
