Among all the terms cited by SYS-CON's worldwide network of software development activists, evangelists, and executives, when in December we conducted our annual look ahead at i-Technology, the two that cropped up most often were "IE7"...and "AJAX."
Here is a sample of who predicted what about AJAX in 2006:
MITCHELL KERTZMAN: founder and CEO of Powersoft, now at Hummer Winblad Venture Partners
"Rich application interfaces, including (but not exclusively) AJAX. Enterprise developers/IT managers have finally realized that the browser interface was a step backward to the 3270 and forms mode. That was good enough for a while, but not anymore."
J P MORGENTHAL: managing partner for the IT consultancy Avorcor
"AJAX: We will see the rise of even stronger support for more powerful portable client-based applications based on Web protocols."
ERIC NEWCOMER: CTO, IONA Technologies
"AJAX will become established as the solution for 'browsers for SOA' but it will not solve the problem of how you access all the data still contained in legacy environments, which still need to be service enabled – with their mission critical qualities of service preserved."
