This Week’s Five: What’s trending now in IT?

This Week’s Five is a weekly column of five interesting reads from all over the web, with a different topic each week. This week, we’ll explore the latest trends in the IT market.

In the IT space, trends are dictated by:

  • Unprecedented demands for certain technologies from end users or business organizations
  • Potential for disruption to IT or the enterprise

Let’s take a sneak peak into few disruptive technology trends in 2013.

BYOD – At the highest level, there are three important things to know about BYOD: It’s here to stay and is all set to grow; the potential risks are real, so mitigation is required; and it can’t be ignored or wished away.

Social IT – IT organizations using social media principles are finding that their staff can interact with users and each other in new and more immediate ways. They are also finding that they can much more easily capture and share the collective knowledge residing across their systems and teams. Then, armed with this knowledge, they are able to better understand their IT environment and the complex relationships that exist among their IT assets.
