At this time, there are many technologies that are vying for the next big trend. There are the obvious ones like 3D printing, Big Data, Quantum Computing, Auto-running Vehicles, Wireless Power, In-Memory Analytics (which is being paired with Big Data apps), Internet of Things or Immersive Web.Top Tech Trends and their Maturity Map Click To Tweet
So many things that the executives and the geeks are “selling”. I found this rather interesting answer on Quota which goes maps the various apps based on their stage of evolution. Are they plateaued or growing in expectations or have they reached the peak? Remember this map is from June 2012. Things have changed, but has it been such a change? One thing is for sure – things, specially the emerging tech trends have been slow to pick up and move on quickly. Take for example 3D printing. Apart from the smaller niche players, only HP has really invested in it.
Most interestingly, even Gartner’s 2015 top tech trends find the same culprits in there just as they were in 2012. Why has the tech been so slow to revolutionize itself?
