In pictures: 10 trends in IT spending for 2014

After years of maintenance-only spending, IT leaders are ready to invest. Find out which technologies - and which IT professionals - are pulling down the dough.

Big data and mobile rule the roost Business intelligence/big data, security and mobile will continue to be hot this year, with cloud computing and virtualization next in the running. Employees want BI tools to measure and analyze data in new ways, and users are looking to get access to this data and do work whenever and wherever they are, on their preferred mobile device.

At Alex and Ani, big data and analytics head up the company's 2014 IT agenda. "Understanding how to segment our sales, our customers and our product are very important," says CTO Joseph Lezon.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
