    for developing database, business intelligence (BI) and web solutions

    visualization and presentation solution, and follow-on to the PowerPivot technology that is part of SQL
    Server 2008 R2

As an Architect, what are The Top IT challenges in 2010 on your point of view?

Hello All, The most common top four priorities I find in most IT organizations I deal with include…

1) Delivering solutions that enable future state business capabilities which are needed to drive the enterprise forward

2) To constantly work to reduce the IT footprint, including its size, cost and complexity

3) To ensure the quality and integrity of existing solutions, such that the business is not compromised, in a manner that conforms with business budget limitations

4) To ensure that all IT work is constantly aligned with business strategy, intent and need (Sorry I provided four but most enterprises I deal with have far more than just three priorities.)

Best regards…
