New Survey of Tech professionals: Silicon Valley will be History in 4 Years

The Times of India recently reported the surprising results of a global survey of  Information Technology leaders by KPMG:

More than two in five technology executives surveyed for KPMG’s Technology Innovation Survey 2012 believe Silicon Valley is on the way out as the global technology hub, in which a plurality of 44% expect China to replace it by 2016.

However, if Silicon Valley does cede its position as the technology innovation capital but it isn’t to China, it’s most likely to be India that takes over, after it ranked second in the survey as the ‘most likely new Silicon Valley’, with 22% of the vote, followed by Japan (10%) and South Korea (9%).
