Five tech trends to watch in 2013

We all know that Big Data and Cloud is on the rise, but what else is on the horizon? Here are some trends that haven't been getting much attention but may end up having a significant impact in 2013.

In the APAC region at least, 2012 proved once again to be the year of the cloud as predictions from media, analysts and industry insiders proved correct: the adoption of cloud services picked up significantly, and on-the-ball organisations were only too keen to offer services in this relatively new market – Dropbox, Google and Apple, to name a few.

Big Data gave it a run for its money however – no more was this more evident than with the Large Hadron Collider, only the biggest and most important example of Big Data being put to work.
