The Top 10, Top 10 2013 Predictions
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.'

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.
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.
