    Moving forward, the cloud will also make development even more virtual: companies don’t care where the developer is as long as good code is delivered on time. Crowdsourcing efforts like CloudSpokes and the integration of social networking tools into the development environment (such as, let’s all vote on who built the most elegant solution) will provide opportunities for talented developers no matter where they live and challenge traditional systems integrators that are used to hiding behind billable hours and big bang projects.

Tight capital budgets, the European banking crisis, and the unending U.S. budget debate make predictability – and taking on less risk – even stronger themes for 2012. In the technology world, mobility, the cloud, and big data (very large data sets and their related challenges) are a few of the trends driving Nucleus Research’s 2012 predictions.
