The emergence of smart machines adds opportunity and fear as "cognizant and cognitive systems" can enhance processes and decision making, but could also remove the need for humans in the process and decision effort.

Gartner, Inc. has revealed its top predictions for IT organizations and IT users for 2014 and beyond. Gartner's top predictions for 2014 combine several disruptive topics — digital industrial revolution, digital business, smart machines and the Internet of Things — that are set to have an impact well beyond just the IT function.

"Gartner's 2013 CEO survey suggests CEOs feel that business uncertainties are declining and yet, CIOs awake each day into a world of technology uncertainty and change," said Daryl Plummer, managing vice president and distinguished analyst at Gartner. "The savvy CIO will get his or her CEO to recognize the change being brought about by disruptive shifts is coming at an accelerated pace and at a global level of impact."
