5 IT Trends to Watch Out for in 2016

As we start a new year, the ever-exciting question is: what technology trends lay on the horizon. Truth be told, technology is constantly on the move. If you want your organization to stay ahead, you’ll need to know not only the latest technology trends, but how those trends are transforming the way people do business in 2016 and for years to follow.


  1. Enhanced Automation of Everyday Tasks

For years, people have been looking for a way to streamline the mundane aspects of day-to-day business operations. 2016 seems to finally be the year that true automation of these simpler tasks takes hold. Infobots and software applications will rise to run automated errands over the internet and change how employees carry out their duties.

  1. 24-Hour Help Desk IT

The days of on-site IT personnel are numbered, and in its place outsourced 24-hour help desk IT support is expected to take their place. Starting this year, more small businesses are expected to outsource their IT support, digitally updating and renovating their way of doing business.

With outsourced IT support at your disposal controlling enterprise tech-activities, servicing customer queries and addressing common technical issues becomes easier than ever. On top of that, you’ll be able to reduce your cost and stress on your in-house employees allowing them to be more productive with day-to-day tasks.

  1. Adapting to Mobile and Wearable Technology

According to MarketWatch, this year will witness fundamental tech improvements that will set and serve as the basis for a smarter future. Virtual reality (VR) and Augmented reality (AR) devices are expected to burst onto the marketplace and revitalize the industry. Businesses will not only need to focus on how clients will adapt to virtual technology, but also they must look for ways to utilize this technology in their own infrastructure to further enhance employee efficiency.

  1. A Boom in Security Management Services

Over the past year, you could barely go a day without reading about the latest security hack of a major corporation or small business. In 2016, it’s no wonder that security management services will continue to attract a huge amount of interests from businesses big and small. Cyber threats and attacks are only becoming more sophisticated, so expect a new class of security solutions to emerge in order to keep up with the chaos.

  1. The Cloud Continues to Grow

2015 was a huge year for cloud computing, and the trend doesn’t show any sign of stopping in the new year either. CIOs should expect to see even more improvements in the current cloud environment as well as the integration of new technologies into the cloud platform.
