My predicitions for 2011 – more of the same

A few weeks ago, I was asked by the folks over at InfoBOOM to provide my predictions for 2011 for technology, business and IT.

After receiving that request, but not because of it, I decided to leave the ‘expert’ program at infoBOOM.  I’ve just got too much going on right now to be able to give the infoBOOM site/community the focus it needs.

That said, I wanted to share my predictions for 2011 for the technology, marketing and IT space.

The predictions are:

  1. Things will change.
  2. Most IT professionals want to change, but are stuck in an unchanging process driven world.
  3. Most CIO’s and IT leaders want to do what’s best for the organization but are so busy trying to just ‘keep the lights on’, that they aren’t able to help innovate.
  4. The year will end with people complaining about IT’s inability to deliver value and things will change more.

Sound’s like every other year, doesn’t it?

I’d love for these predictions to be untrue but, in most organizations, they’ll be as true in 2011 as they were in 2010.

CIO’s, IT leaders and professionals – surprise me in 2011. I’d love to be wrong.
