The time of year is here again when everyone starts to turn the final calendar page and looks to the future. For many businesses that means examining the successes and failures of the year while planning out the next investment. Boardrooms across the country will be debating which of the current and future trends are worth spending a buck or two on.
Fortunately, we do not need to wonder what those might be as one company made their thoughts public. In a recent blog post, eleven executives from the IT consulting firm EMC offered their predictions on the technology trends for 2013.
In the post, a number of popular trends are discussed. Executive vice president Art Coviello focused on the need for increased IT security. Hackers are going to be more sophisticated and change will happen, whether IT departments are ready or not.
Other executives brought up trends like cloud computing, flash technology, blurring responsibilities, digital backup and big data.
"Big data is on virtually everyone’s short list," said Scott Yara, senior vice president for EMC's products division. "The combined effects of social and mobile technologies, the constant need for driving improved competitive advantage and the pervasiveness of analytics software and services will change the way vendors and end users consume information."
While every tech innovation could be beneficial for any businesses, IT Principals need to ensure they have the right resources to successfully adopt and manage any system. VARs and MSPs are becoming go-to partners for many businesses and VAR Staffing is helping these solution providers offer the impactful talent IT executives desire.
