Javed Mohammed talks with Serial Entrepreneur Bob Quillin. Predicting the future isn’t everyone’s cup of tea.

In the absence of having a magical crystal ball, it requires amongst other things, experience, vision, creativity, good judgement, recognizing patterns beyond the obvious and a track record. When I think of making predictions, or forecasting the future, I am thinking of people who can determine inflection points. This is not an easy task, and there are some people like serial entrepreneurs who do it better than others. It doesn’t mean they get it right all the time or in all aspects of life, but they can do it well in a particular field.

In that regard, Bob Quillin who is a serial entrepreneur graced this Podcast, and gave us a year in review of 2020 and his predictions for 2021. Here are the five plus one bonus inflection points as far tech and the cloud goes for 2021:

  1. 1The Agility Imperative Explodes
  2. Scale & Scalability
  3. Technical Debt - Bill Comes Due Now
  4. Lift and Shift Experiment Fails
  5. Modernization Gets Modern
  6. Bonus inflection point: Family, Life Balance, Health is #1
