Welcome to 2018!
Just three days into the new year, Spectre and Meltdown made the news. These flaws affect both system security and performance since they degrade CPU performance significantly. Previously, we saw prominent companies use software to manipulate older generation devices. And everyone seemed to be launching ICOs and adding blockchain or bitcoins to their company portfolio to ride the cryptocurrency bubble expansion.
The year ahead promises to be an exciting (for lack of a better descriptor) one for IT pros, developers, DevOps practitioners, and every other role you choose to claim for yourself.
To honor this critical time, we invite you to check out our annual SolarWinds Head Geek IT Pro-dictions.
To check out the complete list of pro-dictions from adatole patrick.hubbard Dez sqlrockstar and myself, click the banner at the top of this post. We cover IoT, blockchain, data security, compliance, and more. Will our predictions turn out to be prophetic or will they fail to come true? Let us know what you think in the comment section below.
