Tech Will Survive the Financial Meltdown, Recover By 2010
CIO.com recently posted a rundown of the eight reasons why the tech industry will survive and resume healthy growth by 2010.
Some of the highlights:
• Hey, at least it isn’t 2001 again. Even the most dark and dreary of predictions don’t think the current crisis compares to the disastrous dot-com bubble bursting. Times have changed; IT is integrated into all aspects of businesses in ways that just weren’t available back then.
• People love their cell phones and laptops. Most people (especially businesspeople) can’t live without their BlackBerry and portable electronics, and cell phone service has almost become a necessary expense for most.
• Businesses have become very reliant on IT and telecom services. Modern business owners would rather remove an arm than cut off tech services.
There are hard times ahead, but tech pros should look for the light at the end of the tunnel.
