This IDC study provides predictions for the top 10 trends impacting enterprise and datacenter networking in 2015. In 2015, IDC believes that enterprise networking, as well as datacenter networking, will continue to be transformed by virtualization, cloud, new applications, mobility, big data, and social media. These drivers will have a profound effect on business and technology requirements across the entire enterprise network. IDC expects that the aforementioned factors will place unprecedented demands on the scalability, programmability, agility, analytics capabilities, and management capabilities of enterprise networks. IDC predicts 2015 will see overall enterprise network revenue grow 2.9% to reach $41.4 billion.

According to Rohit Mehra, vice president, Network Infrastructure, "The evolution of the network as a strategic business differentiator coupled with increased demands for network agility will lead to new innovations - and pressures - for the network in 2015. Among the major trends we predict for 2015: a growing influence from open networking standards and initiatives; SDN emerging in the WAN; the inflection point where 802.11ac becomes the dominant WLAN standard; the rise of SDN professional services; and federation of IM, presence, and video capabilities in the enterprise."
