2015 Tech Trends: A Critical Crossroad for IT

  • 2015 Tech Trends: A Critical Crossroad for IT-

    App Fatigue

    IT will need to prevent app fatigue in the enterprise.

    We're already beginning to see the initial signs of "app fatigue" in the consumer world. With so many applications at our disposal, it can be overwhelming, and valuable solutions often get lost in the shuffle. If IT is working toward an ITaaS model where it is able to serve as a broker to the business, it can get ahead of any potential and frustrating app fatigue in the enterprise. By aligning the right mix of apps for users ahead of time and using consumer models like self-service, ratings and reviews, enterprise users can cut through the clutter and be productive with the right IT services. The elimination of unused or unnecessary applications can also relieve tight budgets, so it's a win-win for users and IT.

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.
