Study: IT’s Future Lies With Cloud Computing, Security and Mobile

November 7, 2011

Cloud computing, security and the mobile space hold the most growth potential in the coming years, according to IT professionals surveyed by tech staffing firm Modis.

While no single technology dominated that portion of the study, which polled 502 tech workers on issues related to their jobs and the IT industry, those areas took the top three spots. Cloud computing earned 29 percent of the vote, security tallied 21 percent and mobile scored 18 percent.

The technologies are linked, said Jack Cullen, president of Modis. As companies turn to cloud computing to deliver services over mobile devices, securing data is paramount, he said.

“Security has got to be one of the first things you think about even before talking about mobile applications or strategy,” he said. Firms first need to ask how they plan on securing their information in a cloud computing environment.
