It’s that time of year again. As the calendar turns to 2019, technology analysts and pundits everywhere will be peering into their crystal balls, hoping to figure out what trends and technologies will be important in the coming year.

I’ve done my best, leveraging my expertise, experience, insider info, and a lot of gut instinct. However, in the end, all of my predictions were simply best guesses.
But what if there was a way to base these predictions on something more concrete? What if, instead of relying on past sales cycles and survey responses, one could see the actual intent of technology buyers?
