clip_image001 Each January Regional Directors from IT companies around the world blog their Annual Predictions. What is a Regional Director you may ask?

Regional Directors are members of an elite, worldwide group of technology thought-leaders known for their national and international speaking tours, their authorship of books, articles and blogs, and their business acumen. Regional Directors are well-versed on the totality of the software industry. They are recognized for their achievements in communicating the benefits of emerging technologies.

You can let them know your thoughts about their predictions as a comment on their blogs. What do you think? Are they razor sharp, or perhaps their vision is fogged by a giant Azure cloud.
