The Cloud
No surprise that the cloud lead this poll.

I did vote for this because I do believe that the cloud will bring in the most revenue in the near future. Just because everyone is switching over to the cloud and it's becoming more and more essential to have the cloud on hand.

Even with the negatives of a tendancy to have a lack of security, the cloud is something that companies need to stay alive and ahead of the game.

Re: virtual income
They are several opportunities for video, Cloud and IoT. Companies will have to develop solutions to address bandwidth issues for video. Video can be used for employee and user training saving time, resources and money. Cloud and IoT can streamline and automate proceseses which also saves time, money and resources. All these help to boost revenue streams if implemented properly and provided the company has strong CEO and CIO.

virtual income
There are many online income oppportunities and Payment options to receive money from like Paypal,Moneybookers, Payza, etc. and using other mathods of payments trogh these sites to pay for goods and services with credit/debit card like visa/master cards so I think it makes it easier doing things online.

Re: Video OTT
@mhh: Another area that Google is arguably winning in, with YouTube.  They get tons of free "original" content care of their users, the videos are short, and there's a high ad impression to content minute ratio.

Re: In just FIVE years?
@mhh: I suspect most of the things Google does -- including Google Fiber -- are intended (at least for now) as loss leaders.  You have to have your thumb in every pie if you want to rule the world someday (which I fully suspect is Google/Alphabet's goal).

Video OTT
I think Video / OTT is a bit harder to quantify because not every service provider has the same (or will have the same) video / OTT strategy in 5 years. It's incredibly difficult to get into the content space with original programming, but Netflix/Amazon/Hulu/etc are trying to do it. Comcast is deep in it already because it owns a major media property. But other service providers don't.

Re: In just FIVE years?
I don't actually think Google wants to be a fiber provider. I'll be very interested to see what kind of reaction Alphabet gets if it ever has to detail its ROI on Google Fiber. It's not easy to be a non-monopoly ISP -- there is a huge upfront investment and then intense competition with incumbents.

Unified Communications..
I like how Unified Communications has 0% (right now) -- I think that fad ended a while back and fizzled. Messaging platforms (eg. Slack, Skype, etc) have taken over, and I haven't seen much innovation from the telco side on combining Voice with other functions...?

Re: Data flows uphill -- to the cloud
Cloud though is being increasingly commodized thanks to Google & Amazon.   Wouldn't you all agree that we have to be on the lookout for newer technologies?

Re: In just FIVE years?
I think it's a matter of Google sitting back, biding its time, and being careful as it dots every i and crosses every t with the communities it works with.  Google knows it wants to -- and absolutely can -- take over the world; it's in no hurry.  ;)
