Charlotte Au's insight:

This article explains how IT industry is likely to shift in the future. In doing so it recognises five big IT trends for the next half-decade and how these technologies will shape the IT industry in the future. The key trends identified includes tablet devices, social media, cloud computing, consumerism in IT and big data. It also briefly outlines the future challenges that businesses may face when adopting these challenges and provides an insight on how to overcome these challenges.

 

This article was an interesting read and it succinctly identified the key five future IT trends that have been identified and verified in other information sources. However, it does not provide sufficient information on how these key technologies might shape smaller businesses and individuals in society as its primary focus is on corporations or larger businesses.

In this article, Dion Hinchliffe, identifies and discusses a future technology shift for the IT industry. As a result, Dion provides his readers with 5 IT trends that he believes will help many businesses flourish in the next half decade. These 5 IT trends include smart devices and tablets, social media, cloud computing, consumerization of IT and big data. Also, the possible challenges businesses are likely to encounter when adopting these 5 trends are briefly mentioned.

 

This article is useful towards my research as it provides me with information about the certain IT trends expected to become essential for businesses in the future. Furthermore, the source of this article is highly reliable as Dion Hinchliffe, is considered to be an expert in IT aswell as a veteran of enterprise IT.

 

The only limitation within the information given from this article is the fact that it was written in the year 2011, leaving a possibility of outdated information. However, this is still a good article as it is well written and provides useful information.

 

This article will not form the basis of my research, however, it is highly possible it will be a source which I will refer to when writing my essay.

The only industry changing more quickly than PR is the media, and we are inextricably intertwined. I entered PR in 1997.

Charlotte Au's insight:

This diagram explains how PR has evolved through the adoption of social media. It shows that many old forms of marketing and media have become outdated and are been replaced by social media instead. This includes bloggers replacing reporters, twitter replacing news, YouTube replacing TVs and Pinterest replacing product shots. It also explains that social media allows authentic and credible information to be delivered speedily through social media networks which in turn assists businesses to form stronger relationships with their customers.

Charlotte Au's insight:

This article recognises that there has been a rapid uptake in Big Data over the past decade which would likely to continue in the future. In 2000 approximately a quarter of data is stored digitally however, less than 2% of information is stored non-digitally today. The article also emphasized that Big Data is likely to play a major role in decision making in the future and transform the way we work, play and live.

 

This article was useful as it provided me with a brief overview on the possibilities of big data,  how is has developed in the recent years and how it might develop in the future.

Via Vanrijmenam, Edward Chenard
Charlotte Au's insight:

This article identifies privacy as a major concern for citizens due to the expanding usage of big data by governments and corporations. As the usage of big data grows, it would be harder for society to control what information organizations store and distribute. Therefore, I agree with the article that there is a potential for the privacy of big data to become self regulating in the future.

Also, the article mentions the price of gigabytes decreasing, this information can be used in my research if I mention the pros on each important technology.

 

The limitation of this article is that there is insufficient information about the author. Though, despite this, this article will still be useful to my research.

Emerging Trends in the Technology Industry

Gordon Tucker, Managing Director and Leader of Protiviti's Technology Industry practice, discusses emerging trends and developments in the technology sector.
Charlotte Au's insight:

This video identifies cloud computing and social media emerging trends in the IT industry. It is evident that companies have been engaging more and more in cloud computing by taking their products, services and solutions off premises onto the internet. This enables companies to tap into a larger customer base. However, a downside to this is that companies can become more exposed to “bad actors” which can harm the company. Consequently, companies would need to implement strong data security processes in order to protect their intellectual property, customer and employee data.

 

Social media has been another major trend in the industry that would likely continue in the future. It is therefore important that companies learn how to harness the technology to use it for their benefit. 

 

This video was useful as it provided me with a brief overview of emerging trends in the IT industry.

This article explains how social media is affecting many things around us including recruitment, marketing, influence of small businesses, freelancers, journalism, psychology and online influence. Consequently, this article makes it evident that we cannot avoid social media in the future and we will need to learn how to embrace it and accept it into our daily lives.

 

This article was useful as it provides an insight on how social media would affect society and many aspects of our lives in the future.

Ron Sela's curator insight, August 31, 2013 11:08 AM

Social media has been such a powerful force and has shaped elections, impacted business decisions, and changed the landscape of what news is and how it is reported. The future of social media is an active topic of discussion in schools and businesses around the world. It cannot be ignored, but there does not seem to be a definite direction all its advocates are moving toward, perhaps waiting for a media leader to create a singular path for the rest to follow. Until then, the future of social media will be segmented, its value being determined by how practical and profitable its applications are while discovering who will be taking responsibility for the direction it is moving.

Cloud computing: A democratizing force?

Cloud computing: A democratizing force? | 1012ICT Five most important technologies in the next 5-10 years | Scoop.it
Charlotte Au's insight:

This peer-reviewed journal article discusses the various benefits and pitfalls of cloud computing as well as how cloud computing might develop in the future. 

 

Cloud computing enables an organisation to concentrate on their core businesses by leaving the IT aspect of their operations to experts in the field. Due to economies of scale, cloud computing also provides organisations the opportunity to take advantage of new developments in IT technologies at potentially affordable costs.  However, there are issues with security, outages, reliability and interoperability in cloud computing that may prevent its uptake by businesses in the future.

 

This article predicts that there will be a massive uptake of mobile cloud computing in the future especially in the developing world as cloud computing through mobile devices can provide businesses in the developing world a free or low cost alternative to traditional desktop based applications.

 

This article  is up to date and provided me with informative and thorough understanding of cloud computing. Even though it primary focus is on businesses, the points it discusses can also apply to society in general. As cloud computing develops, it may become more affordable and rapidly implemented by small businesses, individuals and entrepreneurs.

Within this article, Nabil Sultan, talks about cloud computing and its potential of becoming highly important in the future as well as the present problems this technology faces.

 

This article is peer reviewed and much of the information is referenced. It is also useful to  my research as it suggest reasons as to why cloud computing will become well known in the future. Nabil indicates a possibility of cloud computing being able to benefit people within developing countries as individuals and business owners can compete against those in advanced nations on an equal playing field. This, along with many other advantages cloud computing provides, is why it is highly likely to be a very important technology in the next 5-10 years.

 

I cannot find any limitations within this article therefore, I will most likely be referring back to this site in my essay.

Charlotte Au's insight:

This peer reviewed journal article explains how tablets usage has become more prevalent in the recent years such that it is starting to replace or ­potentially become disruptive to computers, in particular lower-end portable computers.  The long battery life, portability, continuous internet connectivity and high definition colour display of tablets makes it an ideal tool for communication, socialization, entertainment and information consumption.  The article recognises that even though tablets have become disruptive to computers, it is unlikely to fully replace computers due to limited storage and processing capabilities of tablets. There still a market for computers in order to perform more specialized tasks.

 

This up to date article is useful as it provided me with information on strengths and limitations of tablet computers and the reason why they are rapidly adopted in recent years. It also gives me an insight on how tablets need to improve in order to maintain its market share in the future.

This article explains the concept of "IT Consumerization" and how it could lead to greater productivity in the workplace. It discusses how workplaces are beginning to have a changing attitude towards towards IT consumerization but are still trying to determine whether the benefits of IT consumerization outweighs its potential risks. In order for workplaces to become fully competitive in the future it would need to learn how to take advantage of IT consumerization and minimize its potential risks.
