4 Information Technology trends to watch in 2015

According to the technology research company, Gartner, there are a number of information technology trends expected to impact businesses over the next year and beyond.

It is important to know what technology trends could potentially disrupt your business in order to minimise any risks within your organisation and make the appropriate changes.

Here are our top 4 information technology trends you need to watch in 2015:

  1. Completely connected

Phones, tablets and wearable devices are expected to become more significant in the workplace and so is the need to be able to access files and information from a range of different devices. With more and more employees working away from the office on a variety of devices, it is important that businesses take this trend into consideration and make appropriate changes.

  1. 3-D Printing

For design, industrial and biomedical based organisations, the growth of relatively low-cost 3-D printing devices could have a significant impact on your industry. Many companies are seeing a viable and cost-effective use for 3-D printers through improved designs and reduced manufacturing times.

  1. Smart technology

In 2014, Google begun testing ‘self-driving’ cars, and while Robots and virtual assistants do already exist, their development has grown rapidly over the last year. Gartner are predicting that smart machines helpers are going to have a significant impact on the history of IT and could change the way we do business.

  1. Cyber Security

After the impact of cyber crime over the last year, it is not surprising that cyber security is going to an important element businesses need to recognise in 2015. While it is not possible to provide a 100% secured environment, businesses need to have the appropriate measures in place to minimise risk, including secure, up-to-date IT protection and staff training.
