1. Open source ECM players get an initial boost. Yes, the recession gave them a boost, though smart customers are still asking tough questions about multi-year total cost of ownership.
2. Office 14 casts long shadow on SharePoint. Yes, and no. SharePoint 2010 has energized Redmond's consulting channel. The new version is mostly casting a long shadow on 3rd-party SharePoint add-ons and some enterprise procurement teams looking to delay strategic decisions.3. "Taxonomies are dead. Long live metadata!" Definitely less interest in complicated, human-maintained hierarchies.
4. Regulatory-compliance concerns reignited. Yes, though somewhat sector-specific.
5. Renewed interest in pro-active e-discovery. Not sure there was a major wave here in 2009. What do you think?
6. SaaS vendors expand offerings. Yes, though perhaps not as much as we predicted. Salesforce has certainly been active.
7. Oracle falls behind in battle for knowledge workers. Yes, but that was an easy one.
8. New emphasis on application search. I think so, but then again, we predict it again this year, albeit with some new twists.
9. Social computing diffuses into the Enterprise. Definitely.
10. Long-awaited consolidation comes to the WCM space. No way. What was I thinking?!?
11. Mobile and multimedia Web analytics become key requirements...and disrupters. Multimedia for sure, mobile only half way.
12. Buyers remain in driver's seat. Yes. This is another easy one. Just remember that vendors don't chase every lead in this economy, either.

The 2009 predictions were...
