Editor's note: Peter Drucker said, "The only thing we know about the future is that it is going to be different. We asked several software executives two questions about their hopes for the industry.

The first question was "What aspect of the software world do you hope we'll finally stop seeing in the news and/or on social media in 2016?" We then asked interviewees to fast forward 10 years and share what they hope we'll see in the software world at that time.

Hopes of what we won't see in 2016

Walter O'Brien, founder and CEO, Scorpion Computer Services:

""I hope we'll see software percolate further into the education and training space. We have opportunities to dramatically advance learning and skill-building with improvements in software and the way it augments teaching. Augmented reality will play a role in reducing otherwise costly experiential learning."
