In preparation for 2014, I'm opening the doors of the “On the Mark” blog to some of the most influential players in technology to gain fresh new insights into some of the biggest trends of our time.


Call it “Marking Predictions for 14.”  We'll focus on how trends such as cloud computing, consumerization of IT and BYOD, Big Data, and more will impact the industry and our world in 2014.  We’ll also examine the role technology plays in our lives and take a learn more about how it continues to drive one of the greatest social transformations in human history.

I expect the conversations to be informative, surprising and maybe even a little provocative.
