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.

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.”
