Below is Gartner’s list of its top eight predictions for trends in IT by 2015, This is a summary of key points submitted from over 100 analysts in various research specialties.

  1. By 2015, a G20 nation’s critical infrastructure will be disrupted and damaged by online sabotage.

  2. By 2015, new revenue generated each year by IT will determine the annual compensation of most new Global 2000 CIOs.

  3. By 2015, information-smart businesses will increase recognized IT spending per head by 60 percent.

  4. By 2015, tools and automation will eliminate 25 percent of labor hours associated with IT services.

  5. By 2015, 20 percent of non-IT Global 500 companies will be cloud service providers.

  6. By 2014, 90 percent of organizations will support corporate applications on personal devices.

  7. By 2013, 80 percent of businesses will support a workforce using tablets.

  8. By 2015, 10 percent of your online “friends” will be nonhuman.

I can see why Gartner comes out with these predictions, it is a fantastic media stunt, that achieves huge global coverage, furthermore one has to be bold to make predictions in such an unpredictable age. As with any prediction, some of it might come true and some will end up being farcical. I am not quite sure about the 10% of friends being non-human, but I definitely think that 2,4,6,7 are just around the corner and will become a reality very soon.
