Gartner’s Technology Predictions for 2014, 2015 and 2016
Research and advisory firm, Gartner, has released its list of technology predictions and trends for the years 2013 and beyond.
According to Gartner, its top predictions focus on economic risks, opportunities and innovations that will impel CIO’s to move to the next generation of business-driven solutions.
The predictions were selected from across Gartner’s research areas and address trends and topics that underline the reduction of control that IT has over the forces that affect it.
The predictions include:
IT hiring in major Western markets will come predominantly from Asian-headquartered companies enjoying double-digit growth. An increasing number of successful Asian companies, particularly from China and India, will be responsible for major hiring of IT professionals to support their growth at a time when Western companies will still be coping with the impact of the economic crisis. Aggravating the disparity between the hiring practices of Western and Asian organisations will be the increased use of industrialised IT solutions, which will further reduce the IT staffing needs of Western firms.
