IT Predictions

See also

IT is that time of year for predictions. What will the future of IT hold for the average person? How will advances in IT change business? How will technology influence how we eat, dress, travel, shop, work, play, learn and interact with others?

A quick glance at our past may be an indication of our future. Looking back one can see a black and white TV, a floor model TV, a color TV, a flat screen TV and phones and computers that can substitute as a TV. Looking back one can see a VCR tape, a laser disk, a CD, a DVD, a DVR, a USB drive and cloud storage.

These two examples alone can shed a ton of light on our future. People are more mobile than ever before. Business is conducted world wide over the internet in seconds. The change in our behavior pushes technology to keep up with us. Technology must be small, it must be mobile and it must be affordable. Information is the cornerstone of society in today's world. The technology used to manage our information is vitally important and individuals and businesses alike understand this.

The world of IT will continue to follow the path of our past. Devices will become smaller, faster and store more information. Furniture, appliances, clothing, sports gear and nearly every other accessory will become embedded with technology. Shoes will track how far someone walks. A baseball will send the speed it is traveling directly to a scoreboard.

As technology matures we measure it by how small it becomes. There will be no pencil marks on the door frame but there just may be a door frame that automatically sends your height to the nearest, synched wireless device or calculates if that couch will fit through its entry.

The ways technology can be implemented into our lives is endless and is only limited by the creativity of the human brain. The future is bright and we will all make IT together.
