CES 2016 has brought an amazing number of devices to market, most aimed squarely at consumers. In with all the consumer gear, though, are many products and services that are either aimed at the enterprise IT buyer or applicable to the enterprise. If you want to see the latest in whiz-bang consumer gear, there are thousands of websites ready to show you their take. For enterprise products, though, keep reading.

There are some products on this list that are simply great products in their own right. Others are good, but represent a larger trend in products or services. Three trends in particular stood out for me: virtual reality content creation, virtual reality sound, and USB-C devices.

Many of you might ask what virtual reality has to do with the enterprise. It's a legitimate question. The answer comes in two parts. First, I'm now convinced that enterprises will soon be called upon to create virtual reality content for marketing, advertising, and training in the same way they've been creating traditional audio and video for the last few decades. Next, I believe that we're going to start seeing more and more organizations using virtual reality as a tool in visualizing big data results.

Data visualization is an important topic across the enterprise, and the 3D representations available through virtual reality would enable executives and analysts to dive into data in ways that aren't possible with other technology.

These are my takes on the best of CES. I'd love to know what you thought about CES 2016, whether you were pounding the carpet of the aisles or following along from the comfort of your own office. Ask in the comments section below, and I'll be happy to share stories about some of the other things I saw at CES -- it was an incredible (and exhausting) week.
