Nucleus Top Ten Predictions for 2022

October 12, 2021 - Research V161

The pandemic persists, and Nucleus’s top 10 predictions for this year look pretty accurate. Planning for market disruptions ate disproportionate budgets in 2021 without much success. Even though vendors claimed to invest vast sums into planning capabilities, we are facing a supply chain meltdown in almost all verticals. It seems that vendors had a plan, but did not take into consideration the longer-term issues created by a global medical crisis. Continuity of remote work, supply-chain breakdowns, increased business failures, and a spike in security disasters impacted 2021 revenues and impelled mass migration to cloud services. The prevalence of cloud deployments is helping organizations drive automation, kill off point solutions, and drive a further increase in demand for managed security.
