Top Predictions for 2016

As 2015 comes to a close, I thought I would make some predictions for 2016.   Do you think I will be right?

  1. Software Assurance will be the key question to ask your customers.
  2. Microsoft will launch a SPLA tool to help track SPLA licenses
  3. Windows will be licensed by cores and maybe System Center will too.
  4. There will also be a 8 core minimum per processor for prediction # 3.
  5. Windows Server will have mobility rights.
  6. Windows 10 will have VDI rights for Azure
  7. There will be no changes for SQL
  8. Microsoft will audit companies hosting 3rd party applications but not under SPLA. Talking to you Kcura and EMR hosters.
  9. There will be price increases announced during the year.
  10. will add more articles than ever before.

I am a betting man (not really) and I would wager 90% of what was mentioned above will come true.  Any takers?  It’s a sure bet because  some already came true.

Thanks for reading,
