15 IT Trends for 2015

15 IT Trends for 2015

To shepherd in the New Year I've created a list of 15 IT trends for 2015. They're in no particular order, and most are not new – they're just more relevant in 2015 given the long lead time for mass corporate adoption of new technologies, practices, and thinking despite what industry pundits get excited about and predict…

Increased automation. There's no escaping that people costs continue to be a big part of total IT costs. The use of cloud services will continue to reduce this (with cloud service providers achieving lower costs through both economies of scale and the use of automation) but there is still a need to reduce human touch points, and the associated costs, within corporate data centers and operational environments – with speedier delivery and fewer human errors secondary benefits. 2015 will see even greater automation adoption by corporate IT organizations under pressure to reduce costs and better demonstrate business value.
Continued cloud adoption. IT organizations will continue to move IT services (whether buying SaaS, IaaS, or PaaS) to third-party cloud service providers. Security will continue to be a cause for concern, especially as the media's breach article frenzy continues. However, the ability to integrate (with existing on-premise and newer cloud services) – and have always-up service availability – will rise to be two very practical concerns for enterprise cloud adoption. From an IT management point of view, organizations will need to continue to seek out people with the ability to manage suppliers and service delivery. Nonetheless, IT will continue to head to the cloud in 2015.
The growth of hybrid cloud. Only the foolish ever thought that large enterprises would move everything from the corporate data center to the cloud. Yes, new companies might be able to rely on third-party cloud service providers but for those with a long business and data center history, and sensitivity to storing certain types of information in the public cloud, it was never going to be the case. The hybrid cloud, defined by global analyst firm Gartner as "a combination of private, public, and community cloud services," will continue to rise in popularity during 2015 as organizations look to get the best from both private and public cloud.
The BYO epiphany. This is where corporate IT organizations finally wake up to see that Shadow IT, BYOD, or BYO-anything is not being driven by consumer IT and cloud service providers but by the corporate IT organization's inability to meet stakeholder and user expectations across usability, cost, service, and agility. The 10 years of Consumerization of IT talk, with a focus on consumer gadgets, has thus been a red herring – hiding the true root cause of customer discontent with existing IT supply. Post-epiphany, corporate IT organizations will need to change; and change quickly.
Greater focus on IT costs. It's inevitable. It's been over 10 years since business colleagues buying consumer products and services first started to question why they receive lower spec IT equipment at a higher cost from the corporate IT department. And now as companies require more and more technology to function, especially those that are transforming to digital enterprises, those IT costs will continue to rise. The increased use of third-party service providers (cloud or IT services) will reduce the burden somewhat but it will not be enough for IT organizations to escape the scrutiny of the CFO and CEO, and the need for greater financial stewardship during 2015.
The increased focus on costs will drive a focus on assets. IT asset management has long been a poor relation to corporate IT service management activities and investment. In some ways, the lack of business scrutiny as to why IT costs so much, has allowed corporate IT organizations to be lackadaisical in their asset management. But those days have gone, or are quickly coming to an end, with 2015 finally seeing corporate IT organizations looking to physical and software assets as ways of reducing and optimizing costs.
IT service management models will trifurcate. The focus on delivering consumer-like service experiences and the extension of IT service management capabilities to other corporate service providers such as HR, facilities, and legal through enterprise service management, will cause IT service management as a discipline to divide into, and to evolve at different speeds within, two different schools of thinking. There will be traditional IT service management, enterprise service management, and then both with an emphasis on better meeting customer expectations around not only the consumed service but also the service experience. 2015 will see many corporate IT organizations at a crossroads as they chose which of the three service management roads to take.
The need to manage more complex IT supplier environments. This need will continue to grow as enterprises exit outsourcing deals that have failed to deliver against expectations of service improvement, cost savings, and innovation. In 2015 the need for service integration capabilities, often called service integration and management (SIAM) or multisourcing services integration (MSI), will come to the fore. And this will happen not only for larger organizations replacing previously outsourced scenarios with multiple suppliers but also smaller organizations needing to manage a portfolio of third-party, often cloud service, providers.
Continued mobile pervasiveness. Continued improvements in anytime, anywhere, any device access to data and services will continue to drive the need for better mobile apps and experiences, and the use of personal devices for work purposes. Not only will this dictate the need for better service and app design and delivery, and more intelligent approaches to BYOD, but also the need to consider the security implications of mobility such as data segregation issues – with personal and business data and applications isolated from each other on the same device.
Wearables and the quantified worker. The Apple iWatch launch in 2015 will no doubt see a greater potential business use case focus on wearable computing. While employees might like the idea of a new gadget giving them access to alerts and short messages related to email, social media, schedules, travel plans, or the weather, the ability of wearables to provide location and productivity-related information about the employee might not be so appealing. 2015 will provide an exciting technology opportunity, but one that will need the corporate IT organization and its business partners to fully understand the human implications of new technology.
Big Data. While there will continue to be big talk about Big Data, the real Big Data issue for 2015 will be the availability of Big Data people and their Big Data skills rather than Big Data technology itself. Not only from a tail-end analytics and insight perspective, companies will also need the people and skills for building the new data architectures required to handle unstructured data and real-time input, and other changes required as the increased focus on large data sets continues to disrupt business and IT operations.
The Internet of Things (IoT), or the Internet of Everything (IoE). Most of us are probably bored to death of hearing about how the IoT will change IT forever. It seems as though it has been a long time coming – from IP address management through service/fault management to Big Data analytics. Then there is the security of a whole new breed of network-connected end points. 2015 will see IT organizations having to look beyond the traditional IT capabilities, such as availability and capacity management, to work closer with business colleagues on how these now-connected devices do, can, and will tie in to business operations and business models.
Knowledge management will reappear. It's been around since before the end of the last century but 2015 will see it appear on the IT agenda again – not only because of the replacement of people with automation and the associated potential for corporate knowledge loss, but also due to the rise in self-help and self-service. Organizations need to be clear about what they need though. Knowledge management has previously been held back by its name – knowledge isn't valuable because it is managed, the value comes from its use and reuse. So look at knowledge management through a new lens, one of knowledge mining and knowledge exploitation.
Software-defined everything will continue its advancement. You've probably already heard the talk of software-defined data centers or software-defined networks, where the control plane is abstracted from the hardware. It seems to be in vogue across all data center domains: software-defined servers now seem old hat; software-defined networking continues to mature; and software-defined storage is gaining interest. But this is about more than quickly moving from the old to the new state data center, notwithstanding the fact that the legacy data center might not want to change so quickly. It's about increasing your agility, minimizing vendor lock-in, and improving your ability to serve the customers and consumers of your IT services.
Unicorn chasing will continue. Whether it be the use of cloud technologies or DevOps thinking and operations, in 2015 enterprises will continue their fascination with the operations of technology giants such as Amazon, Google, and Facebook. Business leaders will also continue to ask why their corporate IT organizations can't match these technology giants for unit costs, service levels, service experience, customer support, and agility. Thus, these technology unicorns will continue to be chased, and I'm not sure that 2015 or even 2016 or even 2017, for that matter, will be the year that they are caught.
So that's my 15 trends – what would you have included in, or omitted from, the list?

Build your own business

These people are often quick to dish out advice, but the issue is that nobody actually listens. If you really want to build your business, take the advice to heart.

Success doesn't happen by chance. It takes hard work and a large dose of good luck. Here are eight of the best tips on building businesses--apply them all and you'll be on the fast track to making your own riches.

1. Create happy customers.
"While strategy, market positioning, and coming up with a long-term plan are all important, focus on making the individual sales and creating happy customers. None of that strategic planning is any good if you can't keep the lights on because you're not making enough sales," says Tej Kohli, real estate entrepreneur and software business leader.

2. Learn your lessons.
"It's fine to celebrate success, but it is more important to heed the lessons of failure." Those are the sage words of Bill Gates, who learned early that celebrations are fun, but the hard lessons should be reviewed carefully. Otherwise, you risk embodying the definition of insanity.

3. Remember that there are no shortcuts.
"Formula for success: Rise early, work hard, strike oil." This is the advice from J. Paul Getty, who took the traditional approach to owning a successful business. In an era in which everyone wants to find shortcuts, get rich quick, and get morose if he or she isn't rich before the age of 30, it serves as a good reminder.

4. Forget perfection.
"Don't think you are unstoppable or foolproof. Don't think that the only way your business will work is through perfection. Don't aim for perfection. Aim for success." Brazil's Eike Batista found that he got flustered when things didn't go perfectly--but they never will. Instead, looking toward success and not perfection was his key.

5. Enjoy it.
"Have fun. The game is a lot more enjoyable when you're trying to do more than just make money." Tony Hsieh, the founder of Zappos, is quick to point out that when you stop doing what you enjoy, suddenly no amount of money is worth it. There's more to getting rich than making money and if you do it right, the cash is just a perk.

6. Really be an entrepreneur.
"If you want to succeed, you should strike out on new paths, rather than travel the worn paths of accepted success." John D. Rockefeller epitomized entrepreneurship, but it's something that's becoming more of a rarity. Instead of going with the safe path, try something new. You may surprise yourself.

7. Stop stopping yourself.
"The biggest risk is not taking any risk … In a world that's changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking risks." Mark Zuckerberg's wise words are certainly worth following. Without risk, there's no reward. If you don't make a leap every now and then, you won't be outstanding.

8. Give back.
"There has to be a balance in life. A balance of business, family, and the opportunity to learn and teach." Chuck Feeney's words certainly align with this fact: The people who give the most are often entrepreneurs or business owners. Without balance, everything falls apart.

Ready to become the next successful businessman? Learn from the greats and you're already ahead of the pack.

Gartner Identifies the Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends for 2015

Analysts Examine Top Industry Trends at Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2014, October 5-9 in Orlando

Gartner, Inc. today highlighted the top 10 technology trends that will be strategic for most organizations in 2015. Analysts presented their findings during the sold out Gartner Symposium/ITxpo, which is taking place here through Thursday.

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.

"We have identified the top 10 technology trends that organizations cannot afford to ignore in their strategic planning processes," said David Cearley, vice president & Gartner Fellow. "This does not necessarily mean adoption and investment in all of the trends at the same rate, but companies should look to make deliberate decisions about them during the next two years."

Mr. Cearley said the top trends for 2015 cover three themes: the merging of the real and virtual worlds, the advent of intelligence everywhere, and the technology impact of the digital business shift.

The top 10 strategic technology trends for 2015 are:

Computing Everywhere

As mobile devices continue to proliferate, Gartner predicts an increased emphasis on serving the needs of the mobile user in diverse contexts and environments, as opposed to focusing on devices alone.

"Phones and wearable devices are now part of an expanded computing environment that includes such things as consumer electronics and connected screens in the workplace and public space," said Mr. Cearley. "Increasingly, it's the overall environment that will need to adapt to the requirements of the mobile user. This will continue to raise significant management challenges for IT organizations as they lose control of user endpoint devices. It will also require increased attention to user experience design."

The Internet of Things

The combination of data streams and services created by digitizing everything creates four basic usage models — Manage, Monetize, Operate and Extend. These four basic models can be applied to any of the four "Internets." Enterprises should not limit themselves to thinking that only the Internet of Things (IoT) (assets and machines) has the potential to leverage these four models. For example, the pay-per-use model can be applied to assets (such as industrial equipment), services (such as pay-as-you-drive insurance), people (such as movers), places (such as parking spots) and systems (such as cloud services). Enterprises from all industries can leverage these four models.

3D Printing

Worldwide shipments of 3D printers are expected to grow 98 percent in 2015, followed by a doubling of unit shipments in 2016. 3D printing will reach a tipping point over the next three years as the market for relatively low-cost 3D printing devices continues to grow rapidly and industrial use expands significantly. New industrial, biomedical and consumer applications will continue to demonstrate that 3D printing is a real, viable and cost-effective means to reduce costs through improved designs, streamlined prototyping and short-run manufacturing.

Advanced, Pervasive and Invisible Analytics

Analytics will take center stage as the volume of data generated by embedded systems increases and vast pools of structured and unstructured data inside and outside the enterprise are analyzed. "Every app now needs to be an analytic app," said Mr. Cearley. "Organizations need to manage how best to filter the huge amounts of data coming from the IoT, social media and wearable devices, and then deliver exactly the right information to the right person, at the right time. Analytics will become deeply, but invisibly embedded everywhere." Big data remains an important enabler for this trend but the focus needs to shift to thinking about big questions and big answers first and big data second — the value is in the answers, not the data.

Context-Rich Systems

Ubiquitous embedded intelligence combined with pervasive analytics will drive the development of systems that are alert to their surroundings and able to respond appropriately. Context-aware security is an early application of this new capability, but others will emerge. By understanding the context of a user request, applications can not only adjust their security response but also adjust how information is delivered to the user, greatly simplifying an increasingly complex computing world.

Smart Machines

Deep analytics applied to an understanding of context provide the preconditions for a world of smart machines. This foundation combines with advanced algorithms that allow systems to understand their environment, learn for themselves, and act autonomously. Prototype autonomous vehicles, advanced robots, virtual personal assistants and smart advisors already exist and will evolve rapidly, ushering in a new age of machine helpers. The smart machine era will be the most disruptive in the history of IT.

Cloud/Client Computing

The convergence of cloud and mobile computing will continue to promote the growth of centrally coordinated applications that can be delivered to any device. "Cloud is the new style of elastically scalable, self-service computing, and both internal applications and external applications will be built on this new style," said Mr. Cearley. "While network and bandwidth costs may continue to favor apps that use the intelligence and storage of the client device effectively, coordination and management will be based in the cloud."

In the near term, the focus for cloud/client will be on synchronizing content and application state across multiple devices and addressing application portability across devices. Over time, applications will evolve to support simultaneous use of multiple devices. The second-screen phenomenon today focuses on coordinating television viewing with use of a mobile device. In the future, games and enterprise applications alike will use multiple screens and exploit wearables and other devices to deliver an enhanced experience.

Software-Defined Applications and Infrastructure

Agile programming of everything from applications to basic infrastructure is essential to enable organizations to deliver the flexibility required to make the digital business work. Software-defined networking, storage, data centers and security are maturing. Cloud services are software-configurable through API calls, and applications, too, increasingly have rich APIs to access their function and content programmatically. To deal with the rapidly changing demands of digital business and scale systems up — or down — rapidly, computing has to move away from static to dynamic models. Rules, models and code that can dynamically assemble and configure all of the elements needed from the network through the application are needed.

Web-Scale IT

Web-scale IT is a pattern of global-class computing that delivers the capabilities of large cloud service providers within an enterprise IT setting. More organizations will begin thinking, acting and building applications and infrastructure like Web giants such as Amazon, Google and Facebook. Web-scale IT does not happen immediately, but will evolve over time as commercial hardware platforms embrace the new models and cloud-optimized and software-defined approaches reach mainstream. The first step toward the Web-scale IT future for many organizations should be DevOps — bringing development and operations together in a coordinated way to drive rapid, continuous incremental development of applications and services.

Risk-Based Security and Self-Protection

All roads to the digital future lead through security. However, in a digital business world, security cannot be a roadblock that stops all progress. Organizations will increasingly recognize that it is not possible to provide a 100 percent secured environment. Once organizations acknowledge that, they can begin to apply more-sophisticated risk assessment and mitigation tools. On the technical side, recognition that perimeter defense is inadequate and applications need to take a more active role in security gives rise to a new multifaceted approach. Security-aware application design, dynamic and static application security testing, and runtime application self-protection combined with active context-aware and adaptive access controls are all needed in today's dangerous digital world. This will lead to new models of building security directly into applications. Perimeters and firewalls are no longer enough; every app needs to be self-aware and self-protecting.
