With a 94.2% prediction accuracy rate over the past 12 years, Nucleus challenges Gartner (NYSE: IT) and other analyst firms to issue their accuracy results 

BOSTON – November 17, 2015 – Nucleus Research today announced its 2016 technology predictions along with a review of its predictions over the past 12 years. Nucleus has accurately predicted upcoming trends 94.2 percent of the time and is now calling on other industry analysts firms to reveal their own accuracy rate as they issue new predictions.

“There’s a difference between accurate technology predictions and the futurist-style claims made by other firms. Our clients rely on our insight to make near and long-term technology decisions and we take that responsibility seriously,” said Ian Campbell, CEO of Nucleus Research. “Accuracy for tech predictions means understanding end-user customers and the solutions that will give them the most value. That is the focus at Nucleus and the secret behind our strong track record in predicting upcoming trends.”

Nucleus was among the first to predict the rise of cloud computing, the trend of tablets surpassing PC sales and the mainstreaming of analytics. For 2016, Nucleus sees:
