“Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends for 2015 | Gartner 
• Computing Everywhere: “serving the needs of the mobile user in diverse contexts and environments”
• The Internet of Things: “Manage, Monetize, Operate and Extend and the pay-per-use model.”
• 3D Printing: Worldwide shipments of 3D printers are expected to grow 98 percent in 2015, 100% in 2016…3D printing is a real, viable and cost-effective means to reduce costs through improved designs, streamlined prototyping and short-run manufacturing.
• Advanced, Pervasive and Invisible Analytics: “the value is in the answers, not the data”
• Context-Rich Systems: “.. alert to their surroundings and able to respond appropriately..adjust how information is delivered to the user, greatly simplifying an increasingly complex computing world.”
• Smart Machines: “systems to understand their environment, learn for themselves, and act autonomously – The smart machine era will be the most disruptive in the history of IT.”
• Cloud/Client Computing: “centrally coordinated applications that can be delivered to any device” “While network and bandwidth costs may continue to favor apps that use the intelligence and storage of the client device effectively, coordination and management will be based in the cloud.”
• Software-Defined Applications and Infrastructure; Agile programming of everything from applications to basic infrastructure is essential to enable organizations to deliver the flexibility required to make the digital business work. Software-defined networking, storage, data centers and security are maturing. Cloud services are software-configurable through API calls, and applications, too, increasingly have rich APIs to access their function and content programmatically. To deal with the rapidly changing demands of digital business and scale systems up — or down — rapidly, computing has to move away from static to dynamic models. Rules, models and code that can dynamically assemble and configure all of the elements needed from the network through the application are needed.
• Web-Scale IT: Web-scale IT is a pattern of global-class computing that delivers the capabilities of large cloud service providers within an enterprise IT setting. More organizations will begin thinking, acting and building applications and infrastructure like Web giants such as Amazon, Google and Facebook. The first step toward the Web-scale IT future for many organizations should be DevOps — bringing development and operations together in a coordinated way to drive rapid, continuous incremental development of applications and services.
• Risk-Based Security and Self-Protection: All roads to the digital future lead through security. Perimeters and firewalls are no longer enough; every app needs to be self-aware and self-protecting.”
