IT Pro Leader Board: 2011 tech highlights

We've all got our favourite tech memories from 2011, but what do the IT Pro Leader Board members think? We rundown their 2011 tech highlights.

2011 was a year that seemed almost busier in terms of industry news and launches than any other. So much happened in the space of 12 months it's often hard to pick out one moment as being the most memorable. However, the IT Pro Leader Board panelists are up to the challenge and have done just that.

We'll look back on this year as the time IT started to fulfil some of its long-held promises.

Here are their 2011 tech highlights.

While these all have a long way to go, we'll look back on this year as the time IT started to fulfil some of its long-held promises.

Paul Feldman, IS director, Cancer Research

"The year when "consumerisation" became genuinely mainstream in the corporate world with tablets and apps galore - creating many new delivery and innovation opportunities. Real fun!"

John Finch, CIO, Experian
