At a time when most Indian information technology (IT) services companies have seen an uptick in demand for new technologies such as social, media, analytics and cloud (known by the acronym SMAC), research and advisory firm Gartner recently said these are likely to remain the top technology trends and drivers that will be strategic for Indian companies in 2014.

These technologies, along with some others such as virtualisation, Internet of things, and 3D printing, have the potential for significant impact on enterprises in the next three years, Gartner said in its 'India's Top 10 Technology Trends in 2014' report released recently.

Social Media and Computing

Social media in India has seen exponential growth in the recent past with enterprises using it for customer support and customers using it to offer opinions.

Personal Cloud

Adoption of cloud computing in India is currently limited to the private cloud. Organisations are focused on protecting their applications located in enterprise app stores, as well as the content on employees' personal devices used at work.

The Internet of Things (IOT)

In its early phase of development, enterprises are experimenting with the IoT across a range of sectors, applications, business models and technologies in an attempt to unlock its value.

The IoT delivers tangible value to enterprises through the ability to better utilize remote assets and creates business cases in three key areas - operational technology (OT), digital supply chain and customer interaction.

Collaboration Technologies

Collaboration technologies (otherwise known as workflow management or team collaboration) consist broadly of real-time electronic meetings, content delivery, desktop and application sharing, text chat, group document markup with electronic whiteboarding, security and remote control.

3D Printing

In India interest levels in 3D printing are slowly picking up and this is reflected in the increased presence of providers in the 3D printing space. Because of the country's large population base, high volumes and low cost requirements, 3D printing has the potential to radically transform design, manufacturing and the supply chain model in India.
