The Top 10, Top 10 2013 Predictions

I figured I’d simply regurgitate what many others are expecting to happen

Like last year, everyone has their Technology predictions with their annual lists for the coming year.  Instead of coming up with my own, I figured I’d simply regurgitate what many others are expecting to happen.

Cloud computing in 2013: Two warnings: @DavidLinthicum has his two tragic cloud computing predictions for 2013 (price wars & skills shortage).  Nice to see some realism mixed with all the ‘this is the greatest.’

10 Cloud Predictions for 2013: CIO has an interesting slide show covering things like Hybrid Cloud, Management, Brokers, SDN, Outages and a few other critical components.

RSA’s Art Coviello: 8 Computer Security Predictions For 2013: Attacks grow, Hackers grow, business’s not prepared grows along with investment, analysis and intelligence to mitigate threats.

Security Predictions 2013-2014: Emerging Trends in IT and Security: SANS gets some input from various industry folks on what they think.  Areas like authentication, mobile devices, Windows 8, geo-forensics, gamification and others are highlighted

Top 6 security predictions for 2013: InformationWeek India lists FortiGuard Labs predictions covering APT, two factor auth, M2M exploits. mobile malware, and botnets.

Tech Guru Mark Anderson’s Top 10 Predictions For 2013: Forbes’ list is cool since it goes beyond just security, cloud and IT.  Yes, mobile and hacktivism are covered but also Driverless Cars, eBooks, Net TVs and the LTE vs. Fiber battle.

Top predictions, about IT predictions, for 2013: Of course I love the title and this article digs into the question of  ‘is any real insight uncovered’ with these predictions?.

Forrester: Networking predictions for 2013: ComputerWeekly shares 4 of Forrester’s report on eight critical predictions for 2013.  SDN, WLAN, Strategic sourcing and staffing make the list.

7 Predictions for Cloud Computing in 2013 That Make Perfect Sense: Back to Forbes again, this time specific to cloud.  Private clouds, personal clouds, community clouds, cloud brokers, and even a prediction that the term ‘cloud’ starts to fade.

2013 Astrology Predictions: Gotta have a little fun and give you something to look forward to based on your astrological sign.  That is, of course, if we make it past Dec 21.

Certainly not even close to an exhaustive list of all the various 2013 predictions but a good swath of what some experts believe is coming.

OK, and here are just a few of my own:

BYOD Matures – instead of managing entire device, only those corporate apps and data will be in control.  Mobile Security and BYOD come together.  Also, things like cars and TVs that have internet connections will get added to the BYOD realm.  Why couldn’t a road warrior access his VDI from the car’s NAV screen?  Why couldn’t someone check their email between commercials.  Anything with an IP and screen is game.

Major Mobile Malware – we’ve seen some here and there but think there will be a big jump in attempts to get at device’s info…especially as more BYOD gets deployed.

Cloud Classification (Pub/Pri/Hy) – lines become even more blurry as they all are used to create Hybrid Infrastructures.  No one cloud will take over but will be a part of the entire infrastructure which includes in-house, cloud, leased raised floor, and just about any place that data can live.  There might also be some movement on Cloud Standards.

More Breaches/DoS/Hacktivism – if 2012 is any indication, this will continue.

Hacker Defection – I think there will be more ex-malicious hackers going mainstream and joining legit companies – and they will expose some of the tricks of the trade.

To some this appears to be chaos. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate a...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
