Physicist Niels Bohr once said, “Prediction is very difficult, especially if it’s about the future.” A prescient thought to describe this day and age of rapid technical innovation.

But why try to predict the future when we can create it? To do this, we must continue to drive forward virtuous cycles of technical innovation by leveraging situational awareness, something I’ve written passionately about before, to better understand the environment around us.

My current company, OpenDrives, places enormous emphasis on cyclical innovation through better awareness of our customers’ needs. We’re constantly keeping our ears to the ground to keep our industry insights sharp. These beneficial traits enable me to peek forward into what I think the next year will bring.

Innovations in cloud architectures and distributed IT services have evolved rapidly to address worker decentralization, which accelerated during the pandemic. Organizations have been forced to operate nimbly and must migrate to infrastructures with open standards. While these innovations were well underway prior to the pandemic, I predict that these trends will grow and magnify in importance.
