As a preview to the full list of predictions, IDC Insights expects the following trends will make an impact on a CIO's agenda in the coming year:
- 58% of new IT investments in 2013 will involve direct participation by line of business executives. This participation is expected to grow to 80% in 3 years' time. The expanded role of line of business executives in technology decisions is a result of the advent of cloud, social, and mobile technologies. "They are the great equalizers, the balance wheel of the corporate machinery," said Whalen. "This shift in decision making will have vast implications on how the CIO works with the line of business."
- In 2013, 33% of all new applications will target a mobile form factor. "IT organizations will need to decide which mobile platforms they will develop their applications for as almost half of the mobile application budget goes towards maintaining apps," said McNally. IDC also predicts that the increased number of mobile applications, the need to integrate them with enterprise systems, and the requirement for multi-platform development will drive the creation of many new mobile apps by IT services providers in 2013.
