What to expect and what to look forward to in 2016

SunriseUwe Michael Mueller gives us a sneak peek into what CIOs can expect from technology in 2016.

The New Year is finally here and it’s time to make resolutions, start exciting new projects and find ways to make life easier. With that thought, let me wish you a productive and successful 2016! And speaking of making life easier, there is nothing that has facilitated convenience more than technology, which is, of course, expected to change and disrupt our lives further in 2016.

Here’s a sneak peek into the technological trends and buzzwords for CIOs to watch out for:

  • Security will stay on top of the CIO’s priority list: adaptive security architecture that is flexible enough to meet the challenges of the changing threat landscape is what the present – and future – of business might need.
  • The emergence of deep neural nets (DNNs), enterprise mobile management and autonomous agents – especially those software-based ones that have more near-term and broader business impact – is also expected.
  • Mobile connected smart objects are likely to take over households in mature markets, and advertising will become increasingly virtual – with users themselves not merely acting as spectators but becoming active participants.
  • Also look out for a whole new level of location-based marketing, made possible through technologies enabled by leading technology companies.

Had enough of these buzzwords already? Fear not! In the next couple of months, we will start to shed more light on these trends and on how CIOs can navigate the changing technological and business paradigms. Technology is a double-edged sword, and what you have to face, is not always what you to look forward to. But, by using some tricks from our bag, you may be able to generate a real buzz without getting lost in the buzzword jungle.
