2018 Prediction: A New Generation of CMP

A few weeks ago, my colleague Scott Davis contributed a post to this blog taking a look at his predictions for the cloud market in 2018. It’s a fantastic read, and I recommend that you look it over if you haven’t already.

After reading that one again, it got me thinking about what 2018 may hold in store for the cloud market, and it’s got me excited. The cloud landscape is undergoing a massive change as businesses have become increasingly digital. But the way many vendors out there manage cloud environments remains stuck in the past.

Reading the Tea Leaves: Cloud Computing Predictions for 2018

As a long time CTO, I’m used to making predictions during this time of year, but I haven’t frequently looked back to see how I did. Last year I had 3 major predictions on Microservices adoption, SDDC & HCI becoming commodities and increasing trust in the cloud. I’d give myself an A on 1 & 3 as being spot on, with a B- on item 2, as SDDC & HCI have not receded into the background as much as I expected. At least not yet!
