    Top IT Trends in 2015?

    Top IT Trends in 2015?
    January 22, 2015 | Everything CBTN - By Raju Woodward

    training-trends a new year and one of the goals youíve set is to learn a new technology. But where to start?
    There are so many options! Based on our viewer stats from the last two years, weíve highlighted eight technologies/vendors that will be big in 2015.

    Which will be the next passion you conquer?

    8. Cloud. Itís more than just a buzzword; cloud computing technology is poised to become the next big thing in IT. Powerhouses such as Amazon and Google have rolled out cloud-based platforms. So why not hop on board with the cloud revolution?

    7. Linux. Open source technology continues to be popular because itís easy to access, flexible, and a lot of it is free. Thatís why Linux, the open source pioneer, is still going strong. Nowadays, just about every server room features open source technology.

    6. CompTIA. Whatís awesome about CompTIA? Itís vendor neutral, so itís a great starting point for learning new technologies, from networking to security. Whether youíre new to IT or adding to your skill set, CompTIA training and certs can meet your needs.

    5. Programming . IT might not be your thing, and thatís OK. Programming is an exciting and challenging alternative that will flex and expand your creative horizons as you work at the foundation-level of many different programs, technologies, etc.

    4. Juniper. Looking to mix things up? Look no further than Juniper. Another plus? More companies are turning to Juniper Networking to address their needs, so thereís increasing demand for Juniper networking pros.

    3. Security. It seems like a day doesnít go by without another major data breach. No wonder security continues to be a hot area of IT. Whether itís protecting a network or encrypting a single file, having IT security skills is always helpful.

    2. Project Management. IT involves a lot of projects ó each with a lot of steps and team members. So the demand for experienced pros who can lead projects from start to finish, on time and under budget, is growing. Plus, itís a well-paying field.

    1. VMware. Who doesnít want to save space, time, and money? Virtualization enables companies to do all three by helping them streamline tasks and operations . And when it comes to virtualization, VMware is one of the most trusted and respected vendors.

    Wondering why you donít see Cisco or Microsoft on this list? Make no mistake, both are still popular; they made up nearly 50 percent of total views at CBT Nuggets last year. However, their industry dominance may be slipping as more options become available ó both categories declined in total views and percentage of views.

    What do you think of this list? What would you add or remove?

    I am a bit surprised Big Data and Advanced Analytics is not on the list. I would surely replace CompTIA or Juniper with Big Data.

    I would deprecate Project Management to bottom, Rename VMWare to Virtualization, drop Juniper.

    Cloud is more of a concept that an actual, tangible thing. Cloud computing needs networking , virtualization, and security for it to work. I would certainly include Big Data and Analytics on this as well as mobile technologies.

    I think the listing is biased because it is published by training organization that sels training.
    I think their CBT's are in demand, and a lot of people purchased the A+ and Network + CompTIA certification training.

    Oh, I see now, you just posted the entire article. I thought it seemed slanted.
