After 2020, who knows what’s in store in 2021 for Digital Transformation, DevOps, Cloud-Native and Cyber? An outstanding lineup of experts and leaders will share their best thoughts as they look at the year ahead and beyond

BOCA RATON, Fla. MediaOps, the place to tell your story in the most powerful way, announces its third annual Predict Virtual Conference, Predict 2021, taking place Thursday, Jan. 21, and Friday, Jan. 22, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. EST. The annual virtual conference features thought leaders, futurists and experts in the fields of Digital Transformation, Cloud-Native, DevOps and Cybersecurity, putting forth their views on what 2021 could bring.

The tech industry and the rest of the world faced unprecedented situations in 2020 as the global pandemic wreaked havoc on traditional ways of living. While new challenges arose, so did rapid digital transformation to keep up with rising demand as the world went virtual. What will happen in 2021? Will this trend continue? Accelerate? Slow down? Predict 2021 will tackle these issues head on. 

The event is free to all who register, but registration is limited ( In addition to the great speaker sessions, there will be panel discussions, interactive Q&As with speakers, a scavenger hunt and other giveaways, exhibitor booths and other interactive activities.

“No one predicted a global pandemic at Predict 2020, but some did say we would have more remote workers. I am looking forward to what this year’s forecasts are,” said Alan Shimel, CEO of MediaOps. “We have seen perhaps five years of digital transformation in the past 10 months. Will this be the new normal? Will we accelerate? 2021 promises to be a milestone year regardless. I am really looking forward to this great lineup of leaders sharing their views.”
