There is surely going to be an increase in more services and a need for experts with these services as time goes on. They are coming out in a rapid pace and with the movement into the cloud for many organizations, adapting these services will be a mouse click away without all the added headaches of purchasing hardware and licensing that many of us faced in the past. Thus, needing to broaden your skill set is going to be in high demand as we progress forward. For example, 5 years ago I was on-prem in the data center and 100% utilizing the Microsoft stack. Today, I'm 90% in the cloud utilizing the Azure stack with other open source technologies to further enhance what I am doing.

Technology wise, I think we need to address the nature of tools and practices we used to build our infra-structure. Much of it, including IoT, is built poorly and cheaply like the collapsing Roman insula. A larger majority of our software is subject to security holes and bugs due to badly engineered languages and practices. Many of our top minds are building games and social media platforms while wasting power on crypto-Ponzi schemes. I predict this won't change and the flaws will continue to burn us as we pursue lucre...

So I'm predicting there are people that will want secure software/hardware that's more robust. Like SpaceX vs NASA, I think it won't cost a fortune...

But, I feel that the current political winds of change will affect my life more than any career or technology issues. Ermm

Call me cynical, but the more life experience I get, the less I trust very large centralized resources, especially some of the cloud providers, (Amazon, Google). If the cloud is that important, it should be run like a public utility not by near monopolies that are abusive.

I try and keep an open mind with new ideas, especially as some of those ideas are actually old ideas in a new context.

I find it useful to ask what human need various technologies fulfil. Is it something fundamental or something akin to that exercise equipment you promised yourself you would use, other than as a strange shaped clothes hanger?
If I think I have identified the fundamental need then I start to dig into the underlying principles of the new technology. I find that understanding the principles allows me to pick up the specifics of how a particular technology implements those principles reasonably quickly. If I see a lot of activity and different solutions all trying to address a single issue then that is an indicator to me that this is a subject worth studying.

As to the pace of change, I find it difficult to assess. To me it is like a sink hole suddenly appearing. It may look like a radical change but in reality a lot of change has been going on unnoticed and the sink hole is the sudden exposure of it. I concede that it is a real bummer if that change happens underneath your feet.

Moving forward, I predict that cloud based database-as-a-service (DBaaS) and software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions will become more prevalent. Implementing e-Commerce, data warehousing, or Big Data projects on-premises is complicated and too expensive in terms of infrastructure, licensing, and skilled staff. Those organizations not willing to outsource their IT department will at least outsource hosting of their databases and applications. Back in 1998, MS Access and FoxPro were considered Old School, and today in 2018 on-prem hosted SQL Server is starting to look "old school". I wouldn't say it's Old School today, but it's trending in that direction.
