Cloud Computing A Key Factor In Gartner’s Top 10 Strategy Technology Trends For 2015 – Part 1


The top 10 Gartner strategy technology trends including cloud computing for 2015 were first announced at the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo. Gartner Fellow David W. Cearly suggested that each of these trends will potentially impact enterprises over the next three years. Therefore, he urged that action be taken over the next two years to address the impact that these global forces will have on one’s enterprise.

The top 10 technology trends for 2015 extend across three primary themes:

  • The merging of real and virtual environments
  • The arrival of intelligence everywhere
  • The impact of digital business on technology

Here are top trends that Gartner has identified:

Cloud/client computing – Centrally coordinated applications will become more prominent as cloud computing and mobile computing continue to converge. These applications will be readily delivered to a wide variety of devices.

Web-scale IT – World-class computing will be increasingly deliver large cloud service capability in an enterprise IT context. More enterprises will be able to emulate the Amazons, Googles and Facebooks of the world as they build applications and infrastructure.

Computing presence – Attention will shift from mobile devices themselves to addressing the needs of users in increasingly varied environments.

Smart machines – Smart machines will usher in the most disruptive phase in IT history. Gartner sees a rapid evolution in robotics, autonomous vehicles, smart advisors and virtual assistants. Current prototypes will quickly lead to ramped-up production of these smart machines.

3D printing – This revolutionary answer to so many manufacturing and other needs will go mainstream over the next three years. Lower-cost 3D printers will increasingly impact industrial production. The use of such printers will make the transition from prototype development to regular production.

At MaxQ Technologies, we develop software solutions that help enterprises to respond to the forces shaping and transforming the way in which they relate to their markets and environments.
