This is interesting. I see these "Tech Trends" type of things all the time. It seems like every magazine out there is required to produce at least three focused issues: a new language issue, a salary survey and a "what's hot" (i.e., trends) issue. So I'm used to seeing this.
But when I see something like this from IBM (and apologies if IBM does this every year, but it's the first time I've seen it), I take notice.

Take a look. It's not all that surprising, frankly. Business analytics, mobile computing and cloud computing head the list of hot trends over the next 12 months. But it's nice to see this from a trusted source like IBM.
What do you think?
