HDS Announces Predictions which will Shape APAC IT Landscape

Says IT should embrace a new platform built on mobile devices, cloud services, social networks and big data analytics

Hitachi Data Systems Corporation (HDS) released its Business and Technology Predictions for Asia Pacific in 2015. According to Adrian De Luca, chief technology officer of Hitachi Data Systems Asia Pacific, a key impetrative will be the increasingly critical intersection between business and information technology.

“The era of Business-Defined IT is here, and the time for IT to embrace the third platform that is built on mobile devices, cloud services, social networks and big data analytics is now. The CIO must respond to these requirements and become an architect and broker of business services rather than a technology-builder focused on data centre infrastructure,” said De Luca.

He cited the building of smart cities, big data in competitive industries, hybrid clouds, data driven mobility and regulatory developments as the five key trends that, combined with the local business drivers, will shape the IT landscape in the Asia Pacific region in 2015.

“As exciting new markets emerge and consumer service expectations change, some age-old companies will falter. The winners in tomorrow’s economy will be those, that are able to transform themselves today,” said De Luca.

#1: Smart city initiatives will drive greater investment in the Internet of Things

#2: Industries will ramp up their big data initiatives to gain a competitive advantage

#3: Hybrid clouds will emerge as the preferred approach for deploying enterprise applications

#4: The mobile explosion will require the technology infrastructure to be more data-driven

#5: With new regulations governing data privacy and protection, businesses will increase compliance-related investments
