Key Enterprise Technology Trends for 2014

  • Key Enterprise Technology Trends for 2014-

    IT increasingly decentralizes.

    Organizations embracing the new information technology world of cloud, mobility and M2M will see IT increasingly decentralized. IT will be core to every business function. As a result, IT will work more closely with individual business units and focus on developing tools for seamless process enablement that empowers employees and customers. The C-suite (e.g. CFO, CMO, COO), lines of business and staff functions will increasingly take the lead role in engaging and deploying in the cloud, because of the immediate deployment speed, flexibility, control and cost value they see in cloud, as well as advantages in Big Data analysis. IT will be integrated into financial performance planning, and the lines between the IT department and finance will continue to blur as technology becomes the valued enabler, rather than the end game.

Enterprise users will gain unprecedented control over their technology environment in 2014, according to Verizon Enterprise Solutions' list of top enterprise technology trends for 2014. The new year will see a sharp focus on how enterprises and governments use technology to enhance the customer's experience and enable innovation.

"We are experiencing the democratization of enterprise technology," said David Small, Verizon Enterprise Solutions' chief platform officer. "Mirroring what has happened in the consumer technology space, enterprise technology users look for services to be delivered on demand, to a time and place of their choosing, and in the way that they want. In 2014, enterprise success will be measured by how well organizations are able to use technology to meet user expectations and harness individual innovation."

Here are the key trends Verizon believes will drive change for enterprises and government in 2014.
