Cloud Computing: Enterprise IT's Future: What Tech Executives Are Predicting
We at eWEEK are interested in bringing you information that fits generally into four main categories: facts about new products, services and relevant IT use cases; cogent ideas from thought leaders; history of where IT has been; and previews of what will be coming into the IT world. There are other subsets, but these four buckets hold most of what one will find here in our pages. While it's certainly important to know what has happened, it's equally valuable to know what is going to happen. Today's slide show involves categories 2 and 4: ideas from thought leaders on what will be shaping the IT world in the future. With all this in mind, eWEEK presents a compilation of 10 cogent predictions from highly regarded IT thought leaders. No particular time window is placed on them. Special thanks to Pam Robinson of Mindshare for collecting the thoughts of the thought leaders included in this article.

However, public cloud providers will continue to strengthen their offerings, ultimately proving they are more secure than any enterprise-implemented cloud.
