The next wave of discontinuous technologies will shape the future of the software industry. Many of these discontinuous technologies will emanate from advances in software infrastructure. Previous breakthroughs included application servers, integration servers, and portal servers. They gave us the basis for the Internet OS. What future set of advances will give us the ability to create the next generation of the Internet?

The objective of this Think Tank Session is to focus on the future of software infrastructure and the discontinuous technologies affecting that future. This invitation-only session will convene 20 experts in the software arena for an interactive exchange of knowledge. There is no fee to attend. Proceedings will be shared only with participants. This session is being held at the request of Fujitsu, one of the Center's Executive Sponsors.

Questions to be addressed at this Think Tank Session include:

  • What advances will there be in software infrastructure in the next 2 - 3 years?
  • What discontinuous technologies will arise from these advances in 3 - 4 years?
  • Are there other sources of discontinuous technologies that will have an impact on software infrastructure?
  • What are the implications for middleware of these discontinuous technologies?
