SalesQuest Announces the Top Ten Emerging Technology Trends in 2010

ANDOVER, MA--(Marketwire - March 2, 2010) -  SalesQuest, the industry leader in high tech sales intelligence reports on Fortune 1000 and Fortune Global 500 companies, announces the top ten emerging technology trends in 2010 that will shape enterprise technology spending.

The technology trends were identified using data from SalesQuest's CRUSH Reports. Research analysts identified companies' current technology business drivers. These technology business drivers derive from sources such as earnings calls, annual reports, executive presentations, and interviews. They are based in corporate strategies, business initiatives, and projects directly tied to IT architectures, IT budgets, executive management changes and new investments in enterprise technology.

SalesQuest has created a SlideShare presentation with examples of these technologies that are already being planned and implemented at Fortune 1000 companies. For example, in 2010, Boeing will be talking to cloud computing providers like Microsoft and Amazon about how they can further leverage cloud computing within their organization.

SalesQuest has developed a list of the hottest 75 Fortune 1000 companies to sell technology to in 2010. This list was compiled based on the extensive research and data that goes into the company's CRUSH Reports. Analysts identified current business problems, initiatives and opportunities at companies like Ford, Chevron, FedEx, and HSBC.
