How will IT change in 2012? You tell us.

Windows (Server) 8. Hyper-V 3.0. PowerShell. Cloud.

It’s not too hard to predict what the hot topics will be for Windows admins in 2012 (they have much in common with what we thought would be big in 2011). What is tricky, though, is determining how these new and updated technologies will impact how jobs get done – both on a daily basis and in the long term. That’s when we turn to the experts.

Over the next few weeks, we’ll be talking to our esteemed group of contributors to find out what challenges IT pros will face next year – but we want to hear from you, too. What skills are you learning now? What upgrades do you plan to make? What’s on the horizon that makes you excited…or nervous?
