I’ve never been a fan of predictive articles. Mostly because I’m not actually prescient and thus like everyone else, I’ve got a 50/50 chance of being right – or wrong. And like most people, I don't like to be wrong. But this year I’ve got responses from over 3000 enterprises across the globe spanning every industry to help me figure it out. That helps, a lot.
Even without that data, a lot of predictions aren’t actually all that hard to make and get right. That’s because they’re either following a predictable technology cycle or there’s a pile of data that pretty much points to the inevitability of the prediction being true.
With that in mind, I decided to actually put down in digital ink what the data and technology cycle is showing will be pretty much a given in 2018.
So there you have it. Five take-to-the-bank predictions based on years of watching technology cycles wax and wane and the responses from over 3000 folks in the trenches (and some running the show).
With that, I’m signing off for the year, and we’ll catch you on the flip side in 2018. Have a wonderful holiday season, and a very Happy New Year!
