Predictions for 2015

2015 and the next 5 years will be like putting on jet-packs for IT professionals. We have already seen a huge growth in moving everything to public-cloud, private-cloud and the new hybrid cloud frameworks. If a CIO hasn’t started the migration yet they are beginning the process now. This is what I saw as high points for 2015 and I also supplied some glances from the leaders within the industry.
Cloud
     – SDN and the drive to move the data center to SDDC (Software everything)
     – Hybrid Cloud and DRaaS
     – Companies will still continue to move as many workloads into a visualization platforms
     – Webscale and DevOps
     – Containers
Big Data    
      – Critical Thinking comes to the forefront and IT Skills in this area are scarce.
      – More and more business will invest and grow this area of the strategy to understand their market
      – More probes and gathering of this data within the wearables, mobiles and tracking behaviors of the customers will be a driving force.
Internet of Things (IoT)
     – Internet of Everything
     – Expansion of intelligence built into appliances and devices
     – As this area grows this will feed into Big Data Analytics
Mobility
     – Steady growth of next generation will have multiple devices. The increase use of mobile devices for everyday use.
