2015 Tech Trends: A Critical Crossroad for IT

  • 2015 Tech Trends: A Critical Crossroad for IT-

    IT as a Service

    The trend toward IT as a service (ITaaS) will gain momentum.

    Enterprises will continue on their journey toward IT as a service (ITaaS). It will take a true ITaaS model for enterprises to support an agile workforce with the right IT services and applications that they need to deliver value to the business. This represents an unstoppable shift, where IT is transforming into a broker of a wide range of business-critical IT services and business technology. This has also been described as a transition from IT as a gatekeeper to a shopkeeper. This change is inevitable in the long term, and in 2015 Janssen predicts that IT organizations will begin to take steps to prepare them for this new approach to delivering IT services to the enterprise.

A new year brings new strategic initiatives, new projects and new challenges for IT leadership. In 2015, Bob Janssen, founder and CTO at RES Software, believes that CIOs face many important decisions that will help shape the future of their IT organizations.

It is not difficult to see that many of these trends are interconnected with one another. While the challenges facing IT in 2015 won't be new per se, IT leadership finds itself at a very important crossroads. This coming year presents an opportunity to develop a roadmap and strategy that will reshape how IT supports the business. It is undeniable that IT departments positioned for the most success are evolving into brokers of technology to the business and putting people at the center of their technology choices.
