Updated: Join us for a live Google Hangout where industry luminaries will gaze into a crystal ball and predict the future of IT

In 10 years, will the world’s data centers be shuttered?

In 20 years, will all technology be self healing, requiring no human interaction whatsoever?

As a result of shifts in the IT industry, will CIOs stop worrying about infrastructure and servers, refocusing on innovation?

What is the future of IT?

Updated – please note the new date

Join VMware for a live Google Hangout on December 5 at 10 a.m. PST to talk about the future of IT with futurologist Paul Saffo, along with a number of influential industry analysts and journalists.

You may remember Paul from VMworld 2013 in San Francisco where he shared his thoughts around the future of IT.  You can watch the video replay here.

During our hour-long chat, we’ll discuss trends, industry observations and how IT will affect business around the globe and our everyday lives.
