What technology trends will dominate the IT conversation in 2015?
I think the 2015 conversation topics will be similar to those in 2014, but the conversation will progress to more specifics and use cases/applications of technologies. So I'm planning to hear a lot about the Internet of Things, big data analytics and software-defined everything. Again. 
For me, the biggest three trends in 2015 will be the Internet of Things, big data and cloud. I know these trends were big this year but I have a feeling new technologies / platforms will take these to a whole new level.

With technology taking precedence in the way companies did business and not the other way round, 2015 will have extension and innovation of 2014 continuing primarily in area of IoT, Big Data , Mobility solution and most importantly creating great user experience benefitting social media coverage,
