7 technologies to the basket in 2013

 In 2013, several technologies will sink into the abyss already great inventions of the past. Some resist a little before dying for good. For IT managers, who are currently working on their plans and buckle their budgets, these are the technologies to avoid in 2013 by John Brandon, former CIO and a regular columnist for the U.S. edition of CIO, who handles the challenge with a pleasure.

1. Older applications

Do not keep old applications in the datacenter. Even if you still need older software, you can not rotate them or manage them in the same way in your own data centers.

2. Mobile applications

This is a time that the brightest thinkers in technology have predicted the demise of applications. Doug Pepper society risk capital InterWest Partners believes that apps will become intelligent agents. They will experience our preferences, we will find, and will experience our schedule.

We will not need a weather application, or even a widget. Pour the phone on our home screens the information we have requested it. This means that we no longer have to manage hundreds of applications.

3. Traditional PCs

This is an interesting paradigm shift that may require some adjustments in our thinking. Today, the PC is where we store applications or documents. However, in recent years, thin clients, such as Chromebox Google, without desktop with only a Web browser, show how the traditional PC is obsolete.

Antonio Piraino, CTO ScienceLogic, announces the end of PC in  2013. More and more companies have opted for such a virtual office in the cloud, which allows them to exercise centralized control.

4. BlackBerry mobiles

Announcements of the collapse of the BlackBerry platform in the air for over a year. Continued delays in new updates of the operating system, failures encountered with tablets and new form factors (who wants a physical keyboard with a touchscreen smartphone ?) And turnover at the management does are part of the problem.

Employees want a phone that they can use at work. Today we are connected 24 h x 24, and what good is a mobile professional if you can not play Angry Birds!

5. Windows Phone smartphones

Android and iPhone have won, in 2013, Microsoft will finally decide to abandon Windows Phone. All upgrade to Windows 8 and tablets surface because the attachment of users to the platform is not huge. Analyst firm IDC predicts that Windows Phone will reach 11% market share in 2016, while Ovum dares to predict 13% in 2017, but the indicators to say that iPhone and Android users are willing to change for Windows Phone are scarce.

At a recent conference IT, one of our colleagues IOC expected that, of the 40 people he met, some had an Android smartphone, everyone else had an iPhone, and not a single person n 'had a Windows Phone. Even if early adopters ignore the platform, then who will care ?

6. PABX Systems

The phone on your desk is brought to disappear. Adam Hartung, Consultant at Spark Partners says that one of the major technologies call passing away in 2013 is that of private telephone switches. They are mainly used to connect the internal telephones of a company with the public telephone network.

But the costs and maintenance costs of PABX  are less attractive to businesses, particularly those where employees bring their own devices and use them exclusively. "The employees are happy to bring their own phone company," said Adam Hartung. "They only need to know how to retrieve and manage the connections."

7. fax

"Next year, the fax will be orbited and disappear from our screens" Keval Desai predicted, partner at InterWest Partners. We all know that the fax is from another age, where our data that passed through conventional telephone lines. New services such as Adobe EchoSign allow lawyers, insurance agents and real estate agents to get a digital signature validated and transmit legal contracts fully authenticated.
