Predicting Lots of Clouds in 2012

Posted on December 28th, by thinkstrategies in Uncategorized. Comments Off on Predicting Lots of Clouds in 2012

This is the time of year when we reflect on the year past and year to come.

I provided a scorecard of my past year’s predictions which I published a year ago in E-Commerce Times in my previous blogpost.

I’ve been given the privilege of publishing this year’s predictions for 2012 in Datamation. I hope you like them and they serve as a guide for leveraging the unprecedented businesss opportunities created by today’s exciting new Cloud innovations.

Based on the success of THINKstrategies’ Cloud Channel Summit this past November, we are not only planning to have another one next November, but also plan to host two new events in 2012. We’ve announced that one of the new events will focus on Cloud Analytics. We will announce the focus of the other new event in early January. All of these events will be one-day forums for senior executives that will take place in the Bay Area of California.

Stay tuned for more information about these events, or contact me at if you’d like to learn more about speaking and sponsorship opportunities.

Thanks for your support and interest in my perspectives over the past year. Let me know if you need any help capitalizing on the new business opportunities being generated by the Cloud.
