Critical Areas of Focus for IT Leaders

    Do you have any idea what the executives and different IT leaders should be focusing on in the upcoming months? There are certain critical areas which are believed to be the first priority of focus for IT leaders in the industry in the months to come. These include the following to name but a few.


    Also known as Software Defined Networking, it is one of the most important topics under consideration for the upcoming year. These are a sophisticated set of management tools, which help leaders visualize their network infrastructure, up to a point where the individual routers and switches don’t matter at all. It serves as a layer on top of the physical equipment, which is seen by the servers.

    Experts have been putting forth a lot of discussions and ideas about the exact definition of the concept, and whether it is simply a virtualization of hardware or maybe something on a higher level. Much debate is expected on the topic in the upcoming months.

    Implementation of the Cloud

    There has been a lot of talk about the use and efficacy of private and public cloud servers, and much debate is expected in the future over the drawbacks, benefits, problems and advantages of the different forms of cloud computing services available in the market.

    With hybrid cloud computing taking the industry by storm, it is expected that the IT leaders and executives will be discussing the apparent features of the system and the relevant impact of the implementation of the system.


    Extreme focus is expected on part of the IT leaders when talk shifts to mobility in the sector. Wireless networking, better communications, multi user MIMO and beamforming are different topics towards which thought and discussion is expected to shift.

    Other focused topics will include steps for the management of the wireless infrastructure, development and monitoring of tools, and room for growth as part of the overall key areas.

    Big Data Handling

    A big buzzword which is echoing in the industry these days is big data, and a lot of discussion and deliberation is being done and is further expected from the IT leaders of the industry in days to come.

    IT experts will need to consult more on the implementation and aggregation of all data sets, which are duly utilized for sophisticated system processes like predictive modeling. Debates are also expected concerning the impact and use of external big data and internal big data, both of which occupy some server space and computer cycles.

    There is also, clearly a need to understand how it will all have an impact on the business environment and the sector, and how it will revolutionize and model business processes in the future. Since the system processes are becoming more sophisticated by the day, it is predicted that the IT executives of the industry will be quite busy trying to understand and implement big data tools and processes effectively.

    The IT leaders will hence, be focusing all their attention on these critical points in the coming months, and careful deliberation and implementation of systems in the sector is expected as time passes.
