I don’t like make predictions, because the future isn’t so clear or simple, and in the IT one year could be lot of time and lot of changes. Also I see a lot of predictions that seems only in a binary state (who is in, who is out)… but the real could be completely different from a simple black and white approach. For example same say that the 2012 will be the year of the VDI (I’ve heard this in the last 3 years), others that will be the big fail of the VDI and the traditional PC approach… IMHO neither of the two sentences are realistic: the end user computing segment is more complicated and actually there isn’t a clear big winner.

So I just put a list of links of some prediction for the next year:

Some prediction are obvious (automation, cloud, big data, storage, …) other could be more interesting. Sound strange but none are on the networking side.

Happy New Year for a great and wonderful 2012!
