Web-scale IT

Companies like Facebook, Walmart and Amazon have contributed tremendously to innovative database systems and cloud services. From “eco-friendly” data centers to custom server hardware to distributed computing methods, the world’s largest companies are setting new standards for IT architecture. Gartner Research VP Cameron Haight explains that, "it's not the cloud per se that will save enterprise IT, but thinking and acting like the major cloud providers across all the key dimensions of IT that will." Now that such technology is available at a lower barrier to entry, expect to see mid-sized enterprises emulating data center architecture used by the world’s largest corporations.

‘Tis the season for tech buzzwords to fill the air. Trends such as responsive Web design became commonplace. Wearable computers emerged as the next (potential) revolution. And HTML5 established itself more than ever in application development.

There were also unintended trends that emerged from this past year. Healthcare.gov propelled phrases like "Web application development," "back-end database architecture," and "software quality assurance" into the public lexicon like never before. And an NSA system administrator – turned whistleblower – brought serious attention to the issue of data privacy worldwide.

"Although mobile development has dominated trends and will continue to progress computing and technology in general, 2014 will be the year that Web development fights back." said Himanshu Sareen, CEO of Icreon Tech. "In the enterprise as well as the consumer space, Web development will be an area of tremendous innovation."

In that vein, Devanshi Garg, COO of Icreon Tech, has provided a few more software and technology trends for 2014.
