- Give it a second to catch up to the recording. Okay, welcome my guest, Shannon Pritchett from Career Crossroads. Shannon, thank you so much.
So this is our year end wrap up kinda podcast video cast. I thought I would bring in somebody that is an absolute expert, has been in the industry for years and years, has been on the speaking stage plenty of times at SourceCon and everywhere else. So there's been a lot of new technologies. There's been a lot of technologies touted over the last 12 months. At the beginning of 2019, did you make any predictions as to, or have any kind of thoughts about what kind of technologies were really gonna take hold in 2019?
- Oh, gosh. You know, we have to start with this question, 'cause I have a feeling it's going, this is also gonna be my, what's gonna happen in 2020, right?
- That we didn't get to? I was expecting more AI adoption for 2019 and I was also expecting more groundbreaking tools and technologies to emerge and we really didn't see that this year.

And so instead of companies figuring out, okay this is what I need to build myself, and kinda say oh what if I buy this company, and then bring it to what we have, and that's gonna build that one big pro-, sorry, proprietary system. But, no, I was kinda looking for something that really didn't exist. Don't really know what that is yet, but I was hoping that there would be some new ground breaking, "Ah-ha", jaw-dropping tool and it didn't really happen. So I wish I had a more information about what I was looking for, but I'm always looking for, of course that tool that can make everything happen.
- Ah, I kinda get it. I mean, I was hoping for
