Computing everywhere: Phones and wearable devices become part of an expanded computing environment.
The internet of things: manage, monetize, operate and extend. These four basic models can be applied to any of the four “internets.”
3D printing: New industrial, biomedical and consumer applications will continue to demonstrate that 3D printing is a real, viable and cost-effective.
Advanced, pervasive and invisible analytics: Analytics will take center stage as the volume of data generated by embedded systems increases and vast pools of structured and unstructured data.
Context-rich systems: Context-aware security is an early application of this new capability, but others will emerge.
Smart machines: Prototype autonomous vehicles, advanced robots, virtual personal assistants and smart advisors already exist.
Cloud computing: Cloud/client will be on synchronizing content and application state across multiple devices.
Software-defined applications and infrastructure: Software-defined networking, storage, data centers and security are maturing.
Web-scale IT: Delivering large cloud service providers within an enterprise IT setting.
Risk-based security and self-protection: Security-aware application design, dynamic and static application security testing, and runtime application self-protection.
