We don’t have a crystal ball at CMSWire — but we’re curious about the future. So we’ve collected predictions from some our favorite analytics firms like Tableau, Splunk, Alteryx, Alpine Data Labs and SAP, as well as insights from the Music Industry Association and Ad Age. We’re sharing a few of them with you. For the record, these prophesies do not belong to us, nor do we necessarily agree with them.
