XML used to be the Big Thing, then we had Web Services... Now 2003 is almost half behind and I still do not know what our current hype is!
What’s going on??? Everybody knows that IT industry is fashion-driven, so where is new fashion?

Not a technology, but Outsourcing?
IBM are pushing computing "on demand"
Sun are pushing "Grid computing"
I guess these are things to consider.

Low cost computing will dominate IT for next few years.That means making old things again but at lower cost for mass population instead of just to previleged class.just similar to what Linux hackers do.

linux will become more common in the datacentre (promoted by IBM)
greater horizonal scaling + failover. driven by Oracle RAC, j2ee appservers, cheap intel hardware.
which means:
more j2ee applications.
microsoft office beta 1 for linux.
microsoft exchange beta 1 for linux.
.net will die.
Sun will die (in a netscape kind of way).
IBM becoming bigger than M$

.net will die.
I'd like to think it will, but I don't think so. I'm a java guy in a MS shop. MS can pump lots of money into Fortune 50 companies to get them to embrace .Net. After a few success stories by the big guys it'll spread. (IMHO...)
Web Services will replace CORBA as the conduit between disparate systems.

Personally: anti-technology. DMCA, SCO, catching mp3 pirates, suing each other, just generally stifling anything that tries to pop up.

Maybe that came more negative than I meant. I'm blaming it more on the 'trough of disillusionment' after the boom. That and the crows still trying to pick at the bones of the .com era. There I go sounding all negative again.

Dubya, going down and taking everyone down with him. apart from that
Importing(Giving H1 ONLY to) Asian chicks IT Programmers
All people hopeful of new things in IT, you gotta be kidding me After XML, Java and Internet nothing is new and everything kinda revolves around internet. Innovation is stagnated. webservices, j2ee, .net blah blah all boils down of how to screw the employer of prolonging the project and making more money. finally the user sees a bunch of web pages and data ultimately flowing into Database. But there is HUGE market out there in asian countries but not enough money . BUT on the bright side plenty of people can afford and have a mobile phone in asian countries and thats where the technology is going to play a big part too. Mobile internet services i still find it expensive in US of A and find it rather a little bit cheaper in asian and european countries where they use a current mobile technologies rather than the outdated US ones. I think the next revolution might somewhere in Europe or Asia just a guess. Unless the folks back in USA invent something.
Also more layoffs and more jobs going offshore.

from my perspective: .Net is the hot thing of this year....Will it die? I highly doubt it since it is highly adaptable now and microsoft based companies are all moving in that direction.

Hard to imagine what defining innovations or trends might emerge in a declining sector in the throes of a down economy. It might have been all about Grid Computing this year, as suggested above, at least for us server-side types, or identity services, or web services (which, hot as the idea may have been last year, is only now forming into approaching a standard).
I would make my bid for 2004 as the year of the "software stack problem," for which just now we're starting to see engineering white papers from Sun, IBM, and the usual types rooting for opportunity by wordsmithing new IT "problems."

Another one is J2ME - It is was never a big thing, but its getting very popular lately - especially with mobile phone models for Summer 2003, J2ME has become really popular in Europe!
