During the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo, taking place in Orlando, Florida, the company announced what it thinks are top ten strategic technology trends for next year. It curated a list of technology solutions with'substantial disruptive potential', that are just emerging into broader use. A couple of these technologies have been around for some time, and have been talked about quite often, while others are just beginning to grab some limelight. "Gartner's top 10 strategic technology trends for 2017 set the stage for the Intelligent Digital Mesh," said David Cearley, vice president and Gartner Fellow. "The first three embrace'Intelligence Everywhere,' how data science technologies and approaches are evolving to include advanced machine learning and artificial intelligence allowing the creation of intelligent physical and software-based systems that are programmed to learn and adapt.
The pace of technological innovation is faster today than ever before. Just a few years ago, cloud technologies were considered cutting-edge. Now a robust and mature platform, cloud technologies are driving advancements and creating new paradigms in business, health care, research, and the interconnected world. So what new innovations can we expect for 2017? Gartner recently identified the top technology trends that will be strategic for most organizations in 2017.
ORLANDO – The pace of technology change is accelerating rapidly, augmented by factors that IT pros need to study-up on, things they never had to deal with before like hyperautomation, multiexperience, and human augmentation that Gartner says will have a significant impact on enterprises. "It's been 50 years since the first message was sent across what became the internet. In 50 years we've seen technology transform our enterprises, our relationships, and society itself," said Val Sribar, senior research vice president at Gartner. "The next five years may bring as much change as those last 50." Looking ahead just on year, Gartner created the "Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends for 2020," which the consulting firm released at its IT Symposium/XPO 2019 here this week.
