THE BOTTOM LINE

Nucleus Top Ten Predictions for 2019

Nucleus’s top 10 predictions for 2019 look at rising and falling trends and revisits two topics we took on last year.  We look at high-flyer Slack and reassess the value of Alexa.  IBM takes a hit again as we sincerely hope the board of directors reassesses the direction of that wandering ship.  Embedded analytics and micro coaching both rise as does multi-factor authentication in this increasingly hostile online environment. The technology that supported remote workers is now able to track their output, forcing managers to reassess the real productivity of employees who work from home. Finally, the PC market isn’t dead, but in a cloud-centric world there’s little incentive to upgrade desktop hardware.
