The SoothSayer's column

On this page, which I started a few years ago IBM internally, I have collected my evaluation of technologies and strategies that I predict to succeed or fail. Every year or so I make updates to my prediction commenting if I had been right or wrong.

The things mentioned here are my personal thoughts, which I can't influence nor do I have any responsibility for taking them as facts.

The following themes are available:

Technologies and Strategies that will succeed

Technologies that will fail
