Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends for 2015

  • Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends for 2015-

    Risk-Based Security and Self-Protection

    All roads to the digital future lead through security. However, in a digital business world, security cannot be a roadblock that stops all progress. Organizations will increasingly recognize that it is not possible to provide a 100 percent secured environment. Once organizations acknowledge that, they can begin to apply more-sophisticated risk assessment and mitigation tools. On the technical side, recognition that perimeter defense is inadequate and applications need to take a more active role in security gives rise to a new multifaceted approach. Security-aware application design, dynamic and static application security testing, and runtime application self-protection combined with active context-aware and adaptive access controls are all needed in today's dangerous digital world. This will lead to new models of building security directly into applications. Perimeters and firewalls are no longer enough; every app needs to be self-aware and self-protecting.

Gartner, Inc. recently released its top 10 strategic technology trends for 2015. These trends are expected to have a significant impact on organizations over the next three years and may require major investment. As with any changes to business processes, these trends will affect IT departments and end users, as well as long-term planning, programs and initiatives. The coming year's trends will be focused on merging the real and virtual worlds, data intelligence gathering, and shifting to a digital business model.

"We have identified the top 10 technology trends that organizations cannot afford to ignore in their strategic planning processes," said David Cearley, vice president & Gartner Fellow. "This does not necessarily mean adoption and investment in all of the trends at the same rate, but companies should look to make deliberate decisions about them during the next two years."

Here are the top 10 strategic technology trends for 2015.
