hi everyone,

  Experts Exchange is a great site ... I have to write a paper on IT trends and challenges. I have tried researching but have not found anything interesting. One the topic is too broad. I would like if anyone have any suggestions on a more narrow focus topic where I could find lots of information on it on the web
  Thanks for your help since I know this site has many knowledge people

It shouldn't be that difficult to write about IT trends and challenges -- lots of newspapers and magazines (PC Magazine, PC World) write regularily about such trends. You can also use Google to find articles about the topic field. If the area is still too large, you might want to try narrowing the topic field to a smaller time frame, taking only a certain field in IT (anything from software to hardware, or even narrower like programming and graphics capabilities). Google Scholar might be a place to start: http://scholar.google.com/ .

An interesting area that you could write about is Wireless technology and how it has evolved. Also what is coming in the near future.

Hope this helps...

Another is the move from standard computer models to the virtual computing model. Products such MS Virtual PC or VMware opposed to a single server doing a job(s) on a single box.

Marcos, good choice of topic.  You should have plenty of resources.  Does the teacher allow you to use web resources or does he/she only accept printed resources such as books or magazines?

Security challenges? Wireless security's an eternal challenge. But if you want something really different, but not mainstream, try looking at quasar encryption.

You can poke and prod and see what you can learn about it.

>  a paper on IT trends

checkout the media (news), market (hype, a, some questions in the TA you ask about, and first thing stands out to me is:


Many users having problems and while some of it is configuring systems correctly and getting them upgraded, there is still much ado about processes running on your computer without permission. You can narrow it down further if you want to, for virus or worm, for adware or spyware, for physhing or for spam, for identity theft or just for pranks, on and on, to remote control and stealing what they can, perhaps hoping to get a password that'll help them to improve their GPA
