Trust, security and privacy

In order to enjoy more personalized experiences with technology, consumers will become more willing to provide and share identifying information. As a result, security will become a more significant focus for technology developers. Cloud-based applications and physical devices will take important steps in the coming year to protect consumers’ identities and safeguard their personal information, lending a helping hand to technology professionals who already have their hands full working on internal security policies and disaster recovery/business continuity strategies.

What technologies and trends do IT experts have on their minds for 2014? Logicalis US, an international IT solutions and managed services provider, conducted its fifth annual “Top 10 Tech Trends to Watch” study to find out. The annual study monitors online conversations between CIOs, CTOs, IT staffers, industry analysts and reporters to determine the top technology trends and predictions for the coming year.

“There’s no better way to develop solutions and services for our customers than to listen to what they are saying about the trends they are most interested in for the coming year,” says Lisa Dreher, vice president, marketing, Logicalis US. “There has been a lot of buzz lately about the value of social media and how corporations can use social strategies to their advantage. Tapping into these conversations on LinkedIn, Twitter, blogs, forums, IT news sites and other social media channels is one of the best ways we have found to keep a finger on the pulse of what’s most important to our customers and tailor our sales and marketing strategies accordingly.”
