Industry analysts have predicted that there will be an upsurge in the usage of web-connected devices on the cloud by 2015. Researchers from Gartner anticipate that the overall cloud architecture will expand exponentially which is why data can be easily accessed from any device.

The 'computing everywhere' concept which is otherwise called ubiquitous computing will expand access to capability of devices. All types of devices raging across cars to washing machines and hair dryers will be connected via touchscreens. As a result, more and more companies will embrace cloud technology with every passing month next year and those who don’t will supposedly lose an edge in the competition.

The question that arises here is: Will such radical changes in IT lead to a massive security gap allowing cybercrimes? The retort to this question insisted by Gartner is that IT administrators should think beyond defense perimeter strategies. They need to deploy new-fangled security features and all such applications must be dynamic and static leading to security testing so that systems are monitored constantly for threats.

Telematics or tracking technology coupled with devices will dominate cloud analytics as a trend in 2015. With its help, companies can keep a tab on everything; they will focus on collecting huge sums of data as well as adopt analytics and applications. This will be a new form of information study.

2015 will also observe prominence of three-dimensional (3D) printing. This technology has been around for quite some time that is why consumers are now benefitting from it. 3D printing also offers enterprise users with promising prospects because it holds the capacity to change the way business is done. That is why cloud technology enabled 3D printers will stand prominently next year.
