The major tech trends from this year—including cloud computing, mobility, security
and Big Data—will carry over into 2013 and only get more powerful. The tech
companies showing the best growth these days are all somehow involved in one or
more of these key themes.

Cloud computing has become its own megatrend. The overall cloud software market
is expected to show 19% growth next year, which will propel growth in the
enterprise cloud server market. By 2016, it’s estimated that 60% of all datacenter
workloads will be processed in the cloud.
In the mobile segment, one research firm predicts that the number of 4G LTE
subscribers will jump 181% in 2013. The Mobile Megatrend will get a boost next
year because carriers are being forced to start spending money to improve their
networks to support these growing subscriber counts.

Big companies obviously are well positioned to benefit from these broad trends. But
for investors, it’s the disruptor companies—the ones that are constantly innovating,
adding tons of new customers and winning market share—that often show the best
returns. Disruptors force industries to adapt, change and grow in new ways.

For our list of eight tech companies that will continue to disrupt their sectors in
2013, check out the December 2012 issue of Tech-Stock Prospector.
