One of the guys at Information Week, Jeff Bertolucci, had a pretty good list of predictions, some of them not very positive. For example, “More Hadoop projects will fail than succeed.” Ouch. His other predictions are more sanguine, and a couple I agree with are that there will be increasing demand for automated tools as the size of big data efforts increases, and there will be an increased utilization of the cloud solutions for big data projects.
