Gartner: How big trends in security, mobile, big data and cloud computing will change IT

By , Network World |  Cloud Computing, Gartner

" HTML5 will be a key mobile technology, but fragmentation and immaturity will remain challenges through 2015 so HTML5 is a very long way from being a panacea for cross platform development. Some of HTML5's challenges can be reduced by using JavaScript frameworks such as Dojo, Sencha or JQuery mobile which can hide some platform and browser dependencies. Testing non-trivial HTML5 applications will be complex due to the many platform and browser variations.

" By 2016, 60% of large enterprises will implement limited access network zones to limit the connectivity of personally owned mobile devices.

" in the next five years 65% of corporations will adopt MDM to address security concerns from smartphones and tablets.

" Gartner predicts that through 2017, 90% of enterprises will have two or more mobile operating systems to support. In the past year, many companies have moved to Apple's iOS as their main mobile device platform, with others to follow over the next 12 to 18 months. As other operating systems like Windows 8 mobile platforms grow, MDM will need to be adopted, Gartner said.

" By 2015, 20% of smartphone users worldwide will conduct commerce using context-enriched services on a weekly basis.

Security

" Security investments are going to dramatically increase. An already large security market is about to get much bigger, growing by 56% from current levels in five years time, while cloud security will almost triple.

Gartner analysts said a key reason for this is regulatory compliance. IT leaders need to anticipate and plan for the coming wave of government interventions and regulations. As information technology becomes pervasive in all operations, regulations from the analog world will come to the digital world.

" More than 50% of firms currently providing identity access management as a service (IAMaaS) and cloud-based IAM solutions will be acquired by larger service providers by year-end 2015.

" Through 2013, 80% of cloud security incidents will be due to administrative error by cloud service providers or user management of cloud services.

" For low-security environments, or for workloads that have simple security requirements, relying on the security built into structure or into the public cloud service will be good enough -- just as it was in private cloud infrastructure-traditional insourcing and outsourcing. This will represent roughly 20% of the overall market.
