    Trend #5: IT systems will need to 'plug-in' to 'play' in enterprises more than ever.

    Organizations will need to make sure they don’t create data and application silos by deploying technologies that can seamlessly integrate with existing and other IT systems. With fewer moving parts, there is less risk of failure, so organizations should integrate, rationalize and consolidate IT efforts where possible.

While 2014 was the year of security concerns following the Windows XP migration (which saw nearly 30 percent of organizations still using the OS after its end-of-life), 2015 is shaping up to have a similar focus on security given the flurry of massive data breaches in recent months. IT security will continue to be top of mind for companies of all sizes.

Virtualization will be another major focus for 2015, as IT departments will need to embrace BYOPC and BYOD in a way that doesn’t jeopardize the organization’s security. While last year was a big year for the virtualization market, this sector is yet again poised for changes in 2015 as growing BYOD demand continues to push IT departments to evolve their positioning and policies to satisfy employees. Virtualization technology is finally beginning to reach its maturity, and we look forward to the launch of Windows 10 and further development of the virtualization software industry.
