25 Articles Discussing 2013 Sustainability and Green IT Trends

Sustainability GreenITThe corporate sustainability trend continues to be important for future generations. There is an increased awareness that Information Technology will play an important part in sustainability efforts for governments as well as enterprises.  Government and business leaders alike are increasingly looking across their operations, to the products and solutions they sell, to the way they manage supplier relationships in order to understand how to better protect Mother Earth.  And these leaders are also looking for help from the Information Technology Industry to understand how their data centers can be more energy efficient and also how technology can help them improve their sustainability efforts across the whole enterprise and throughout their supply chain and distribution ecosystems.  

Information technology can play a big part in helping to eliminate wasted energy, wasted space, and wasted natural resources/materials.  New technologies are available that can help organizations become more energy efficient, implement new ways to source, manufacture and distribute goods and services in a more sustainable manner, and enable safe and renewable sources of energy.  There is no doubt that green computing and energy-efficient data centers has morphed from an appealing idea into an essential practice.  Skyrocketing energy costs and tight budgets, coupled with growing public and government pressure, have forced companies to put this issue on the front burner.  

So what are the main trends we should expect in 2013?  Overall…the focus continues to be reducing energy usage and improving utilization rates of existing infrastructure. But have a look at the following 25 articles, which can give you a feel for what is expected to happen in 2013.

32 Articles Discussing IT Security Trends for 2013

SecuritySecurity is one of the most important long term trends happening in the Information Technology Industry today. 

There so many challenges facing enterprise I.T. departments, many of which were just not a major challenge 10 years ago.  The advent of cloud, mobile, social, big data, other digital trends is taxing even the most secure enterprise I.T. infrastructure.  Enterprise IT systems are sending and receiving more information to partners, customers and external stakeholders over a wide variety of networks.    In addition to those disruptive and emerging technology  trends is the fact that the criminals and hackers out there are getting more and more sophisticated in their planning of cyber attacks.

Today, our world’s infrastructure is both more sophisticated and more interconnected than ever before – linking vast amounts of information and services in new ways, but also introducing more security complexities and challenges in roughly equal proportion. For this reason, it is no longer enough for organizations, or even entire governments, to try to address security strictly within their own enterprises.

The list below contains 32 articles and blog posts I found recently that discuss the important 2013 trends to watch out for within the overall I.T. Security topic.  Read a few of these and you will get a good idea of what challenges await CIOs and their staffs in 2013.

28 Internet of Things (IoT) Trends and Prediction Articles for 2013

Internet of Things For the last 10 posts I’ve been sharing my research with you around top trends for 2013. I’ve covered everything from Social Business to Big Data to Cloud Computing.   Today I am sharing a list of 28 articles and blog posts that discuss the developments we might see in 2013 around the trend called “Internet of Things” or IoT for short.

The IoT refers to the explosion of embedded sensors and intelligent devices that are flooding our every day lives.  Sensors are being embedded in all sorts of ‘things’ from fitness monitors, to cars, to water main valves.   There are forecasts from industry analysts that say there will be up to 100 billion uniquely identifiable objects connected to the Internet by 2020.  Many of these devices will be able to talk to other devices and computers without any human intervention.  Enterprises can deploy their own sensor networks, building sense and respond systems that can work autonomously.  Some say that the IoT will be the most disruptive technological revolution since the advent of the World Wide Web. 

Below you will find a list of 28 articles that discuss the IoT and what developments we might expect to see in 2013.

15 Data Visualization Trends and Prediction Lists for 2013

Visualization1 For the last two blog posts out here I have been highlighting the Big Data and Analytics trends.   These two are very important trends and they lay the foundation for the trend I am featuring today…  Data Visualization.

Big Data and Analytics are such powerful trends in the media that Data Visualization often gets overlooked…or is an afterthought.  It should not be that way.  You can do a great job of implementing Big Data and Analytics solutions but if you can’t display the insights to decision makers in a format that helps them quickly understand the insights and the implications of those insights, then you are not helping them make business decisions. 

Here then,  I am sharing with you 15 articles/blogs that discuss the opportunities and challenges ahead in 2013 for the Data Visualization trend.

30 Analytics Trends and Predictions Lists for 2013

Analytics - insight Today I have another list of articles and blog posts that focus on trends and predictions for 2013.   Today I focus on Analytics.

When I first started at IBM I was selling small computers to small businesses which had never had a computer before.  The one application that helped sell many of those systems was Sales Analysis.  The small business owners were always excited to see the types of Sales Analysis reports available because it was too hard to develop those types of Sales Analysis reports manually.

Today, analytics continues to be an important trend in the IT Industry.  There is allot of focus being placed on Analytics because the amount and type of data has grown exponentially.  Today’s businesses must implement new analytical solutions and develop new skills in order to generate the intelligence and insight necessary to describe, predict, and improve business performance.

Leading-edge businesses are embracing advanced analytics that can help them identify their most profitable customers, accelerate product innovation, optimize supply chains and pricing, and identify the true drivers of financial performance.

Here then, is a list of 30 articles that provide information on what the important trends are within the Analytics space over the next year.  Come back tomorrow and I will have another similar post on another important trend for 2013.

32 Big Data Trends and Predictions Lists for 2013

big-data-pratica In this post you will find links to 32 different articles and/or blog posts that all discuss the trends that will happen around the trend of Big Data.

The Big Data trend refers to storing, managing and extracting insights from the growing flood of data created by individuals and organizations.  The volume of data has been increasing in the past 5 years, mainly because of unstructured data, but also because of other trends – mobile, social, and consumerization.   Unstructured data includes emails, pictures, video, social media and other information that is not ordered in (or cannot be readily entered into) a traditional database-style model.   The unstructured data requires new ways of storing and processing data.

If you explore the articles and blog posts below, you will have a good feel for what the top trends are within Big Data for 2013.

23 BYOD Trends and Prediction Lists for 2013

BYOD2 Today I am sharing with you a list of articles and blog posts I’ve found and inventoried that discuss trends and predictions for the coming year related to the Consumerization of IT and “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) trends.  

Consumerization of IT refers to the trend of innovative technologies (hardware, software, solutions, services) that were designed for consumers making their way into the corporate world.  BYOD is the trend that is specific to the explosion of mobile devices that consumers are buying and how those consumers want to use those personal devices to access corporate networks, applications and data.

It’s important to note that the BYOD trend is not just about companys letting employes use their own devices. It’s also about supporting employees with resources and technical expertise in order to leverage those mobile devices into something that works for the employee and also works for the company.

Here then is a list of 23 blog posts and articles that discuss these trends.

Social Business If you’ve been following this blog the last week, you know I am in the process of sharing back to you lists of trends and predictions I have uncovered while doing research on the top Technology trends for 2013.  I’ve inventoried over 500 different articles that discuss trends and predictions that might happen in 2013 related Technology.

Today I am providing you a list of 31 articles and blog posts that all discuss what trends to watch out for in the area of Social Business.  Included are articles on Social Media Marketing, Social CRM, and Internal vs. External Social Computing.  The Social trend is one of the major trends that is happening in enterprise businesses today.  It grew out of the Web 2.0 trend a few years ago and is a new way of doing business.  The important implication for business and IT leaders is that new business processes and skills are required.  And another thing….don’t underestimate the effort it requires to use social computing technologies.  It can be a large undertaking for a business to transform itself to a ‘social business’.

35 Trend and Prediction Lists for Cloud Computing in 2013

Cloud Smarter Planet Logo The last couple of days I have started sharing with you trends and predictions lists.  I’ve already posted “101 Technology Trends and Predictions Lists for 2013” and  “13 Virtualization Trends and Prediction Lists for 2013 “.  Today I share with you a list of articles and blog posts that contain predictions and top trends related to Cloud Computing.

The Cloud Computing term came on the scene back in 2008 and has been hot ever since.  Cloud Computing provides individuals and organizations with new options on how they acquire or deliver IT services, with reduced emphasis on the constraints of traditional infrastructures and the software/hardware licensing models that come with that traditional infrastructure.  Benefits include reduced costs, improved service delivery and agility to enable innovation.   It offers new opportunities, especially for new start-up competitors.

There are lots of people predicting what is going to happen in cloud computing, which is an indication it is still a big buzzword in the industry.  The list below is certainly not all the Cloud Computing trend lists that are out there, but there are enough for you to get feel for what 2013 might hold for Cloud Computing.
