Hi Chad,

I've been predicting #10 since 2012 and this demand will only grow as more software defined DCs emerge. There's a shortage of sysadmin/developer talent who can script well enough to use the tools coming on the market that automate the orchestration of SDDC. People who know coding(powershell, .net, java, ruby), networks, storage and virtualization. And can knit them all together via an API are rare and will become more in demand until there is a replacement for them. Until then there will be a lot of Chef, Puppet and even SCCM installs running in labs not doing much; waiting for someone to really use them.

Thanks for the list.

Thanks Chad and wish you all the best in 2014! Really looking forward to a big year for converged infrastructure and the collapsing of silos.
