As we get ready to close the books on 2017, it’s time to look ahead to  new ways of working in 2018.

Today, we offer a collection of predictions from visionaries across many different disciplines of Citrix. As the predictions came in, an overarching theme emerged: The concept of how we work is changing dramatically and is largely driven by the move to hybrid cloud, the growth of IoT and AI, and ever-changing security threats.

Though the industry agrees overwhelmingly that the move to the cloud is the necessary next step to enabling flexible, collaborative ways of working, IT adoption of cloud creeped along much more slowly than expected in 2017. IT leaders struggled with non-technical issues, such as the move to SaaS driving spending as OpEx vs. CapEx, securing buy-in from business unit leaders, and more. The drive in 2018 will continue to push this move toward flexible workspaces ahead.

In fact, a recent Citrix-commissioned survey proved the industry’s interest in the path to the cloud in 2018:

  • 75% of office professionals believe that in five years, businesses with a flexible work environment will not be competitive without using cloud-based apps
  • 57% of office professionals at companies with a flexible work environment are currently using cloud-based apps
  • 50% of office professionals who do not have a flexible work environment believe that their company would have one if they had the technological capabilities to accommodate it
  • 2 in 5 office professionals would turn down a job opportunity if the company did not have a flexible work environment
  • 1 in 5 employees collaborate virtually, such as through web-based apps and platforms
  • 50% of office professionals who work in flexible work environments note that it has increased productivity

So, while the perspectives of our leaders here at Citrix vary, one commonality holds among them all: the move to the cloud will continue to drive the majority of change in 2018. Read on for predictions on exactly how from our leading thinkers:
