Gartner, Inc. recently released its top 10 strategic technology trends for 2015. These trends are expected to have a significant impact on organizations over the next three years and may require major investment. As with any changes to business processes, these trends will affect IT departments and end users, as well as long-term planning, programs and initiatives. The coming year's trends will be focused on merging the real and virtual worlds, data intelligence gathering, and shifting to a digital business model.
"We have identified the top 10 technology trends that organizations cannot afford to ignore in their strategic planning processes," said David Cearley, vice president & Gartner Fellow. "This does not necessarily mean adoption and investment in all of the trends at the same rate, but companies should look to make deliberate decisions about them during the next two years."
Here are the top 10 strategic technology trends for 2015.
