Predict 2020: What Will the New Year Bring?

With the holiday season upon us, our thoughts naturally turn to the next year and what it has in store for us. Will we come into more money? Will we find true happiness? Will there be better integration between DevOps and security? Will there be more Kubernetes instances? The first two may be a little hazy, but it’s a good bet the second two will be discussed during Predict 2020 Virtual Summit, Jan. 23, 2020, where an all-star lineup of industry luminaries will offer up their visions for the future.

Crystal ball? Check. Swami hat? Check. Insight relevant to the industry? Check. Very smart people who know what they’re talking about? Double check.

Similar to last year’s event, Predict 2020 will feature a virtual environment with a conference lobby, presentation theater, expo hall and more. More than a series of YouTube live presentations, it is truly a conference experience from the comfort of your desk.


Our keynote speakers for this daylong event include analysts, practitioners, venture capitalists and thought leaders from the realms of DevOps, cloud native, cybersecurity, digital transformation and IT. Each will share their best predictions for the year 2020 and beyond.

Among those slated to speak are:

There will also be an exhibit hall where you can interact with other attendees and sponsors, watch videos and download more information.

It should be a great day of learning and networking right from the comfort of your own chair.
