In the past few months, there has been a flurry of IT trend predictions. Just about everything has been covered ad nauseam. I have contributed my thoughts about these trends to publications for over 10 years. This year, I have decided to do something different and give you some IT projections that go beyond my usual coverage of short-term trends. I have teamed with Paul Lewis, Hitachi Vantara’s Global Vice President of Industry and Enterprise Architecture, to project how IT might be 10 years out. 10 years is a lifetime in IT technology, but we feel that there is a high probability that these things will happen in this time frame. And there are things that we need to start doing today to get ready for the disruptions that these technologies will drive. The topics we will cover include what compute, storage and AI might look like in 2030.
