Cloud computing and security will be among the ten IT trends for 2011 as more businesses look to reduce costs while staying secure, according to a new report.
Ovum, a company that advises the commercial impact of technology, predicted that cloud computing will "continue to grow steadily" next year as providers and chief information officers continue to take advantage of the logistical and financial benefit.
Furthermore, the firm believes that security will be important as new technologies, including mobility and social media, present new vulnerabilities.
Mark Blowers, who compiled the report, said that businesses must try and keep up with the trends listed and attempt to implement them into their computer networks.
"These are the key trends that will define the IT landscape for CIOs in 2011," he said.
"If CIOs do not have a strategy for how they intend to take advantage of the opportunities they provide, and deal with the challenges they bring, then they should form one as an urgent priority."
Ovum's predictions were echoed by Gartner earlier this week as the research analyst revealed that cloud computing would be one of the biggest innovations over the next year.
