Already the end of the year. So as usual it is time to make some predictions for the next incoming year and to review precidions done for this year.
Top 10 Predictions for 2011
1) Rise of Composite Content Platforms
As apps become sites and sites become apps, we will continue to see the emergence of content-enabled application servers and, vice-versa, application-driven content platforms. Content-enabled mashups, JCR-leveraged portlets, and socially empowered composite applications will all be around in 2011. Their development will favor the emergence of next generation pre-integrated SOA/WOA composite content platforms that provide social, content and applications as default core services.
2) From Open Source to Open Data
The disruption caused by open source, community-driven CMS is reaching a plateau. The new wave for 2011 will focus on sharing mass-volume data and content, rather than the sharing of code. As Tim O’Reilly saidlast March, the next real open source opportunity lies with data. This deluge of data and content, mixing various public and private sources, will impact the way we manage our “systems of records”. Traditional records management, focused on information retention, auditing, logging, permissions, and so on on a per content silo basis, will then have to meet the Linked Data paradigm. Thus, a “Linked Records” era of distributed content interoperability able to properly ensure content governance along the whole information lifecycle will start to emerge.
