The Top 10, Top 10 2013 Predictions

I figured I’d simply regurgitate what many others are expecting to happen

Like last year, everyone has their Technology predictions with their annual lists for the coming year.  Instead of coming up with my own, I figured I’d simply regurgitate what many others are expecting to happen.

Cloud computing in 2013: Two warnings: @DavidLinthicum has his two tragic cloud computing predictions for 2013 (price wars & skills shortage).  Nice to see some realism mixed with all the ‘this is the greatest.’

10 Cloud Predictions for 2013: CIO has an interesting slide show covering things like Hybrid Cloud, Management, Brokers, SDN, Outages and a few other critical components.

RSA’s Art Coviello: 8 Computer Security Predictions For 2013: Attacks grow, Hackers grow, business’s not prepared grows along with investment, analysis and intelligence to mitigate threats.

Security Predictions 2013-2014: Emerging Trends in IT and Security: SANS gets some input from various industry folks on what they think.  Areas like authentication, mobile devices, Windows 8, geo-forensics, gamification and others are highlighted

Top 6 security predictions for 2013: InformationWeek India lists FortiGuard Labs predictions covering APT, two factor auth, M2M exploits. mobile malware, and botnets.

Tech Guru Mark Anderson’s Top 10 Predictions For 2013: Forbes’ list is cool since it goes beyond just security, cloud and IT.  Yes, mobile and hacktivism are covered but also Driverless Cars, eBooks, Net TVs and the LTE vs. Fiber battle.

Top predictions, about IT predictions, for 2013: Of course I love the title and this article digs into the question of  ‘is any real insight uncovered’ with these predictions?.

Forrester: Networking predictions for 2013: ComputerWeekly shares 4 of Forrester’s report on eight critical predictions for 2013.  SDN, WLAN, Strategic sourcing and staffing make the list.

7 Predictions for Cloud Computing in 2013 That Make Perfect Sense: Back to Forbes again, this time specific to cloud.  Private clouds, personal clouds, community clouds, cloud brokers, and even a prediction that the term ‘cloud’ starts to fade.

2013 Astrology Predictions: Gotta have a little fun and give you something to look forward to based on your astrological sign.  That is, of course, if we make it past Dec 21.

Certainly not even close to an exhaustive list of all the various 2013 predictions but a good swath of what some experts believe is coming.

OK, and here are just a few of my own:

BYOD Matures – instead of managing entire device, only those corporate apps and data will be in control.  Mobile Security and BYOD come together.  Also, things like cars and TVs that have internet connections will get added to the BYOD realm.  Why couldn’t a road warrior access his VDI from the car’s NAV screen?  Why couldn’t someone check their email between commercials.  Anything with an IP and screen is game.

Major Mobile Malware – we’ve seen some here and there but think there will be a big jump in attempts to get at device’s info…especially as more BYOD gets deployed.

Cloud Classification (Pub/Pri/Hy) – lines become even more blurry as they all are used to create Hybrid Infrastructures.  No one cloud will take over but will be a part of the entire infrastructure which includes in-house, cloud, leased raised floor, and just about any place that data can live.  There might also be some movement on Cloud Standards.

More Breaches/DoS/Hacktivism – if 2012 is any indication, this will continue.

Hacker Defection – I think there will be more ex-malicious hackers going mainstream and joining legit companies – and they will expose some of the tricks of the trade.

Peter Silva covers security for F5’s Technical Marketing Team. After working in Professional Theatre for 10 years, Peter decided to change careers. Starting out with a small VAR selling Netopia routers and the Instant Internet box, he soon became one of the first six Internet Specialists for AT&T managing customers on the original ATT WorldNet network.

Now having his Telco background he moved to Verio to focus on access, IP security along with web hosting. After losing a deal to Exodus Communications (now Savvis) for technical reasons, the customer still wanted Peter as their local SE contact so Exodus made him an offer he couldn’t refuse. As only the third person hired in the Midwest, he helped Exodus grow from an executive suite to two enormous datacenters in the Chicago land area working with such customers as Ticketmaster, Rolling Stone, uBid, Orbitz, Best Buy and others.

Bringing the slightly theatrical and fairly technical together, he covers training, writing, speaking, along with overall product evangelism for F5’s security line. He's also produced over 200 F5 videos and recorded over 50 audio whitepapers. Prior to joining F5, he was the Business Development Manager with Pacific Wireless Communications. He’s also been in such plays as The Glass Menagerie, All’s Well That Ends Well, Cinderella and others. He earned his B.S. from Marquette University, and is a certified instructor in the Wisconsin System of Vocational, Technical & Adult Education.

Thought experiment: let’s say your app gets a message from somewhere, perhaps from another app, but you don’t know from where. The message contains the number 47 but no other information. What should your app do with the message? The answer: nothing. There’s no way for your app to make any sense out of a single datum with no context, no additional information or metadata about the datum itself. Now, let’s scale up this thought experiment to a data lake. There are a few common definitions o...
Back in 2009 I posted about the “Great Cloud Shakeout” and the coming market consolidation into a few very large clouds. Nearly 5 1/2 years later and it’s about (long past?) time I took another look to see how I did. Back then I predicted that the market would be dominated by “mega CSPs” by the name of Amazon, Google and Microsoft. Note that this was during a period of Cambrian Explosion in the CSP market – it seems like everybody in the hosting business wanted to be a cloud provider....

Security is one the more prominent of the application service categories, likely due to its high profile impact. After all, if security fails, we all hear about it. The entire Internet. Forever. So when one conducts a survey on the state of application delivery (which is implemented using application services) you kinda have to include security. Which of course, we did.
No, not the head-banging, gritty, heavy metal Metallica song (though that's certainly awesome too.. excuse me for a moment while I turn it up to 11) but the Puppet as in automation kind of master. The importance placed on APIs - which are key to automation - in our State of Application Delivery 2015 survey was high, with 40% of respondents saying it was important to them that their infrastructure be API-enabled. Automation using those APIs is generally being accomplished through a variety of m...
The concept and subsequent adoption of 'Containerization'' is growing at a rapid speed with the support of almost every other major player in the industry. This concept is much more efficient than the Virtualization which has been a major option for Infrastructure optimization in the past decade.
