Q8.Will the current craze for “digital transformation” continue, fade or grow larger in 2022?
Bruce Kornfeld
A8 Continue and grow faster. The world hasn't been digitized yet. Paper is still being used in business. Tech continues to make it easier - LC/NC, GPUs for faster processing....the list goes on. We are just at the beginning!

Sid Mistry
A8: More companies will continue to learn and refine their AI strategy as this time of digital transformation grows larger. We have seen budgets increase year after year and expect them to continue to rise.
Larry Lunetta
A8. The concept and the execution will continue and accelerate. I hope the term goes away...and I'm in marketing.
Ram Chakravarti
A8. Grow. Effects and advancements of pervasive intelligence and enterprise automation will be felt more quickly and globally because capabilities are not only increasing but becoming more significant and measurable
Llanor Alleyne
A8 Digital transformation will continue to grow. Many enterprises are still exploring how to effectively & economically implement it as well as carve paths to retiring legacy systems. That will take time.
Llanor Alleyne
A8 For many companies digital transformation is an incremental process that will take years.
Kevin Coppins
A8. Not sure how to answer this one, but I will say that there is WAY more tech debt in the world than we think. Lots of legacy (20 year old+) stuff running factories and companies (probably more than one NetWare server out there still serving packets...) So yes - will continue

@larry_lunetta A8 Digital transformation is already way beyond markting boundaries, though. Spoke w/ a big CPG today doing virtual product testing.
James Maguire
@ktcoppins No doubt the enormous tech debt -- lurking, and growing...
Larry Lunetta
A8. COVID changed all the rules and forced transformation on every organization so it is now a fact of life.
Sid Mistry
@larry_lunetta Yes, COVID accelerated digital transformations and AI strategies for many organizations.
Stephen Zisk
@Llanor_A Slow transformation is a painful (but true) message and a kick in the pants. Big Gap between aspirations and reality!
Ram Chakravarti
@jamesmaguire there is a reason why the mainframe will outlive many of our careers
James Maguire
@larry_lunetta Every company is a tech company
Larry Lunetta
@ktcoppins Agree, the challenge now is to manage multi-generational IT while transforming.
Llanor Alleyne
@szisk Yes. There is also the employee buy-in factor. People have to be able to effectively use these systems.
Kevin Coppins
@larry_lunetta I like that term - will use that instead of "Digital Transformation" and move on to "migrating away from multi-generational accidental IT architectures" #marketing
James Maguire
Q9. Final question – your one big prediction for tech in 2022? Any last thoughts about tech next year?
Sid Mistry
A9: Responsible AI will continue to grow in importance with companies becoming more transparent with their AI practices. Organizations will focus more on the ethical data collection, data usage and model outputs.
Ram Chakravarti
A9. #DataOps, an agile approach to data management, will be adopted widely by organizations as an enabler of value realization for DnA programs, which have historically been successful approx. 1 in 5 times across enterprises
James Maguire
@unsolvedmistry There is enormous pressure for #ethics in #AI

Bruce Kornfeld
A9. Data Thinning. The world can't keep up with data creation due to Edge, IoT, Digital Transformation - analytics software (with the help of GPUs) will gain significant traction next year.

Kevin Coppins
A9. 2022 is the year that privacy will become much more real for many more people as healthcare data takes center stage. This will drive the convergence between privacy and security - throughout all systems, not just point solutions as innovation and litigation collide.
Llanor Alleyne
A9 Climate change & sustainability have taken center stage at the global level. While the tech industry has, in some cases, taken steps to be greener, there will be greater pressure to implement more aggressive steps toward clean tech production & processes.
Larry Lunetta
A9. IT consumption will begin a major shift from a CapEx to an OpEx model.
Bruce Kornfeld
@Llanor_A How about tech companies helping to SOLVE these problems - that would be even better!
Raj Samani
A9. The scale of this years’ exploitations coupled with the consequences of ransomware will renew diligence in patch management
Kevin Coppins
@larry_lunetta hasn't that already shifted?
Kevin Coppins
@brucekornfeld working alongside legislators, there are answers to be had - let's solve things and not simply complain about them. That's why we are here!
Raj Samani
A9. The scale of this years’ exploitations coupled with the consequences of ransomware will renew diligence in patch management #eweekchat
Stephen Zisk
@ktcoppins A9 totally agree on healthcare at center stage... but may mean very different things in US, Europe, developing world!
Kevin Coppins
@Raj_Samani patch management and data classification. Know where your valuable stuff is, protect that.
Kevin Coppins
@szisk which adds a degree of difficulty for multinationals for sure!
Stephen Zisk
@Llanor_A A9 Interesting on climate change, since cloud & blockchain are **huge** consumers of electric power.
Larry Lunetta
@ktcoppins To some extent. It will be much more than simply how to pay for IT: flexible consumption, managed services, etc.
Llanor Alleyne
@szisk There will be a reckoning.
Kevin Coppins
@larry_lunetta agreed - still much to do underneath the "Capex/opex" discussion. Thanks for the clarification.
James Maguire
Q5. What about #cloud in 2022? What will be a key trend?
Llanor Alleyne
A5. Sustainability. We are getting to grips with how much data processing is fueling digital transformation and with it the amount of energy that it takes to accomplish that transformation.
Llanor Alleyne
@jamesmaguire A5. IoT & the proliferation of smart devices will also continue to push the demand on cloud computing.
Bruce Kornfeld
A5. "Cloud First" will fade and be replaced with "Edge First". So many new use cases and value being created at the edge - that can't handle cloud latency and costs.
Larry Lunetta
Q5. We've already talked about this. The cloud is not a place but an experience and we will see workloads move between the edge, the datacenter and the public cloud based on resource availability, performance requirements and economics.
James Maguire
@larry_lunetta So the data center lives on for the foreseeable future? Decades?
Kevin Coppins
A5. Every time I hear "cloud" I think of my favorite Dad Joke "What are clouds made of Daddy?"...."Mostly Linux servers son, mostly linux servers".
Larry Lunetta
The definition of the data center is also changing with new types of distributed architectures increasing the efficiency of that form factor. It keeps getting re-invented.
Bruce Kornfeld
@Llanor_A You're saying "push" demand - meaning lower it?
Llanor Alleyne
@brucekornfeld meaning increase the demand
Sid Mistry
A5: Like we have said, organizations have realized the importance of a hybrid work model and will need to continue digital transformations to enable more access to cloud services and products.

James Maguire
@unsolvedmistry Ah someone used "digital transformation" -- we needed that! :)
Larry Lunetta
@unsolvedmistry Agree, the cloud scale and flexibility is a critical component of hybrid work solutions.
Ram Chakravarti
Cloud is part of the hybrid IT landscape extending to the edge - cloud AND edge NOT #cloud OR #edge
James Maguire
@RamChakravarti2 "cloud AND edge" So true!
