Cisco GEC - Technology Forecast 2015

  1. 1. Technology Forecast for 2015 Predictions The Top 8
  2. 2. 1 Change Is the Only Constant in IT In the next ten years, industry boundaries will be expanding with IT companies partnering, investing and acquiring non-IT companies. Innovation in ICT is leaking over to distant domains.
  3. 3. 2 If It Doesn’t Work on Mobile, It Doesn’t Work We truly live in an app world. Apps today are the oxygen of business. Without apps as part of their IoE strategies, businesses will suffocate from the missed opportunity mobile offers.
  4. 4. 3 It’s the Network and It’s that Simple With more than 20 billion connected devices by 2018, autonomic networking is fundamental to enable the network to support IoE. IT and OT (operational technology) will need to scale for the copious amounts of data and the push in simplifying the network will be SDN and NFV.
  5. 5. 4 Is IoT Secure? In the next two to five years, IT security will extend to OT. There will be brand new use cases, such as connected vehicles. The industry is moving from a preventative approach to a “before, during and after” approach.
  6. 6. 5 It’s Real Time Big Data is nothing without Big Judgment. For analytics to be useful in an IoE world, IT must be delivered to the people who need it in real-time. This requires a network that is contextually aware, predictive and secure.
  7. 7. 6 Predictive Context Goes Mainstream The predictive context industry will become a major application category in the next four years.
  8. 8. 7 Without Trust, Nothing Else Matters Will Rogers said, “It takes a lifetime to build a good reputation, but you can lose it in a minute.” As companies address this challenge and learn to clearly communicate with their customers to build trust, the amount of encrypted data traffic will skyrocket.
  9. 9. 8 Future of Work Dramatic changes in the workforce will result in new skill sets–driving adoption of wearables and mobile devices in a B2B environment. There will be a huge transformation in OT–from the typical control engineer to data scientist to new content and work tools.
