I attend a lot of technology events and participate in lots of roundtable events and panel discussions. And I get to tick off every item on my buzzword bingo card at every event. But, over the last year a new term has been permeating discussions. Digital transformation has become a common theme in everything from online services to security to marketing. Well, I'm calling it now. Like "big data" a few years ago was really just "data" attached to a hype machine, "digital transformation" is really just business as usual.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
