Predicting the Future of Windows, or Lack Thereof
Presented by Dan Shappir
What does the future look like for Windows? Will Windows 10 herald a resurgence of interest in the Microsoft platform, or is this just another step on an inevitable road to oblivion? Will virtualisation and Cloud computing revitalize Windows, or will they relegate it to middleware? Is the future of Windows on the front-end, on the back-end, both, or neither? In this session, Dan will attempt to predict what the future looks like for Microsoft Windows based on the evidence, past experiences, analysis, and wild guesses.
- What might Windows look like in five years? In ten years?
- If Windows goes away, what might its replacements be?
- What will enterprise IT look like in a post-Windows world?
