I was working on my contribution for Profit Magazines’s “Top Trends of 2015″ and needed a break. So I thought I’d set up my new iPhone 6.

The trend I see becoming increasingly relevant is simplification, and I was writing about how you need to consciously work on keeping your IT complexity down. Then I told iTunes to download all the Apps I had purchased over the years. The list came to 532 apps!

I had unwittingly proven my own point eloquently. My list of apps contained games I played years ago, social media platforms that never took off, productivity tips that weren’t productive, etc.

I took the opportunity to simplify my iOS app portfolio and now have 63 apps that I actually use at least monthly (+ another 18 from Apple that they won’t let me delete…).

Are you keeping your IT simple? You should.
