Gartner Outlines 10 IT Trends To Watch

Gartner Inc. offered a glimpse of 10 trends for IT professionals to pay attention to over the next five years.

The trends were discussed in a Thursday Webinar by David J. Cappuccio, a research vice president at Gartner. He noted that IT pros are busy enough with daily operations, with “74 percent” of IT budgets devoted to those concerns. Still, he contended that there are lots of new technologies and trends that will have an impact on IT departments.

  3. “Hybrid cloud services
  4. “Integrated systems
  5. “Applications acceleration
  6. “The Internet of things
  7. “Open Compute Project

End user expectations are affecting IT. New workers getting out of college are expecting access to everything all of the time, from any device, from anywhere, Cappuccio said. They typically own between three and four devices today, he added.
