2010 Prediction: Lee Caswell, Pivot3 - Page 2
Therefore, it is my prediction that the third big wave will come in 2016, or in roughly half the time of this second wave. I see the third wave tied to the application of virtualization to the next-highest volume markets such as desktops, mobile devices and consumer appliances. While x86 server volumes look large relative to mainframe servers, they pale when compared with any consumer volumes. I will be looking to see virtualization applied to these consumer and mobile devices when they meet the critical 4x threshold in 2016 based on the advances of Moore’s Law.
