We looked into our crystal ball and this is what we found.
- Rise in Ransomware
Expect an increase in malicious attacks in 2018. Juniper Research tells us that the cyber crimes will create $2.1 trillion in business losses by 2019! That’s a lot of money!
- Artificial Intelligence
AI will minimize human errors, improve operations, and ultimately decrease operational costs. Like it or not, AI is here to stay.
- Cost Optimization
Low cost still wins so you will find commodity hardware outpacing branded versions. Even better will be software with built-in intelligence that provides consistent premium performance at least cost.
- Evergreen Technology
Have you heard the term Evergreen? It refers to infrastructures that will never again require forklift upgrades. Data migrations will become a thing of the past as intelligent software continually manages this complex process.
- Climate Change
With our environment playing nastily with us, IT departments will take steps to protect data, including synchronous replication to multiple locations. Multi-site is king.
