#CIOChat: 2016 technology trends and predictions

What 2016 technology trends are set to dominate the enterprise? Share your IT predictions in our end-of-the-year #CIOChat on Wednesday, Dec. 16, at 3 p.m. EST.

As we say goodbye to 2015, SearchCIO is reflecting on the year's big technologies and trends -- from Internet of Things initiatives and 3D printing in the enterprise to the transition to hybrid cloud and everything in between. It's been an eventful 12 months in IT, which makes the prospect of looking ahead to 2016 all the more exciting. What's in store for enterprise IT next year? We're asking you, our readers, to weigh in during our end-of-the-year #CIOChat.

Join SearchCIO on Wednesday, Dec. 16, at 3 p.m. EST to talk about 2016 technology trends, and what CIOs and IT executives can do to keep pace with the ever-changing IT environment. We're seeking your best predictions about which technologies and focus areas are on the rise, and which might fade away. Plus, we'll discuss 2016 IT resolutions and find out what technology jargon you're swearing off in the new year.

Joining SearchCIO editors and followers as our guest experts are Shawn Banerji, managing director at Russell Reynolds Associates in New York, and Jerry Luftman, a former CIO and managing director of the Global Institute of IT Management.
