In this episode of 2023 Predictions, Co-Founder and CEO Rob Hirschfeld shares his industry forecast for the new year.

Hirschfeld sees the following hot topics for 2023:

  • Platform engineering and the tooling that supports it
  • Software interconnect layer or computing interconnect layer, i.e., taking next-generation PCI bus and actually connecting systems together in a converged way
  • ARM processors
  • More direct competition as well as collaboration between cloud providers

Enterprises will be challenged with

  • Not having enough time to implement hard projects due to economic constraints and shifting markets
  • Finding and retaining talent. Some of the skills needed to do the type of platform engineering, high-scale automation, and distributed control work are specialized.
