Horace Blackman, vice president of health and life sciences at Lockheed Martin, has highlighted health IT, information security and infrastructure commodification as key trends in the federal market for 2015 in an interview with Federal News Radio posted Monday.

Blackman told anchor Francis Rose that trends in medical devices and applications, cloud and the security and integrity of medical data will increase in importance for agencies.

“My prediction is that you will certainly see a lot more… in terms of the integration of the clinical side of healthcare delivery along with IT,” he said.

“In addition to that, you’re gonna have things like the integration of mobile devices… the development of apps and really looking at the disaggregation of devices and the data.”

According to Blackman, this disaggregation will lead to data becoming “platform-agnostic” and not reliant on the device, which shifts the focus of security measures from the device to the data itself.

He told Rose that cloud and other infrastructure services will also become commodities as agencies focus on efficiencies in cost and operations.
