Predictions for Beyond 2011

 

Perhaps I am foolish to even try to predict 2011, and even more so for the coming decade.

However, I have found a reasonably credible business source for these predictions.

The Crystal Ball

The effects of information technology will increase not only in healthcare, but for the rest of the economy and the percentage of the GDP to which it will contribute.

Gartner Consulting of Stamford, CT prognosticates

By 2015, a G20 nation's critical infrastructure will be disrupted and damaged by online sabotage.

By 2015, new revenue generated each year by IT will determine the annual compensation of most new Global 2000 CIOs.

By 2015, information-smart businesses will increase recognized IT spending per head by 60 percent.

By 2015, tools and automation will eliminate 25 percent of labor hours associated with IT services.

By 2015, 20 percent of non-IT Global 500 companies will be cloud service providers.

By 2014, 90 percent of organizations will support corporate applications on personal devices.

By 2013, 80 percent of businesses will support a workforce using tablets.

By 2015, 10 percent of your online "friends" will be nonhuman.
