During Gartner Symposium/ITxpo held in Oct 2014 in Orlando FL, Gartner highlighted the top ten technology trends that will be strategic for most organizations in 2015.
“Gartner defines a strategic technology trend as one with the potential for significant impact on the organization in the next three years. Factors that denote significant impact include a high potential for disruption to the business, end users or IT, the need for a major investment, or the risk of being late to adopt. These technologies impact the organization’s long-term plans, programs and initiatives.”
Here’s the list of the trends:
The Internet of Things
Advanced, Pervasive and Invisible Analytics
Software-Defined Applications and Infrastructure
Risk-Based Security and Self-Protection
