Predictions We Got Wrong by Blair Pleasant

Simmons, Jon Arnold, Phil Edholm, and Kevin Kieller. Among the topics discussed are enterprise social software, voice recognition, CEBP, WebRTC, Google, personal agents, and federation.

How refreshing for a group of smart people to look over their shoulder. Kudo's!

Thanks Bennet - we know that every once in a while we get it wrong, so it's good to be open about it.

I think a lot had been expected of social media integration by analysts and others in UC Blair and it's good to hear that you looked back on a missed prediction, but you're certainly not alone on that. I hear people saying BYOD many times in the podcast and as statistics show (in the latest Comp TIA report) full BYOD is not as large a part of enterprise strategy as was expected either. The overall UC/mobile device space is pretty much still feeling its way. Next year at this time you'll likely be talking about wearables in UC predictions as well.

Agree with you, Corey!

BYOD will be driving the need to accommodate individual end user interactions with business processes that will involve internal staff, business partners, and consumers/customers who will all be exercising BYOD for mobility. Unfortunately, the standards are not yet in place to deal with interoperability for all types of endpoint devices, but we are getting there, slowly!
