We live in a world in which proponents of new technologies claim that they have the potential to dramatically change our lives, and the technologies seem to emerge on an almost weekly basis. Some of these technologies go on to become massive market successes whilst others fail to meet the requirements for business realisation.
Nevertheless, we always aim to think beyond the hype, identifying genuine technology game-changers and attempt to find those characteristics which ensure market breakthrough.
We will be joined by Matt Hatton, Research VP at Gartner who will explore ‘Hyperbole and hyperventilation: the hype cyclist’s perspective on technology’
For years Gartner’s Hype Cycle has been a mainstay of understanding technology trends. Matt recently joined Gartner when it acquired his technology research and consulting firm Machina Research in 2016. In this session Matt will examine the various big technology trends to be covered in the day’s sessions, with a particular focus on technology triggers and hype.
