Forrester lays out 3 scenarios for CIOs:
Scenario 1 forecasts increased consolidation, diminished innovation, and high prices.
In Scenario 2 a new, large vendor enters to challenge IBM, Microsoft, Oracle, and SAP; stimulate innovation; and keep price increases at bay.
In Scenario 3 it forecasts the upheaval of today's largest vendors, rapid innovation, and steep price declines.
What do Deal Architect readers think?
BTW - Forrester inspired this question - so no wimpy Gartner probabilities allowed -)
