Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends for 2016

Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends for 2016 Posted on:

Strategic technology trends have the potential for significant impact on an organization, including a high potential for disruption to the business, end users or IT; the need for a major investment; or the risk of being late to adopt. The top 10 technology trends that will be strategic for most organizations in 2016 were revealed by Gartner, Inc. during the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo, held this week in Orlando. “Gartner’s top 10 strategic technology trends will shape digital business opportunities through 2020,” said David Cearley, vice president and Gartner Fellow. “The first three trends address merging the physical and virtual worlds and the emergence of the digital mesh.

Ambient User ExperienceAll digital interactions can become synchronized into a continuous and ambient digital experience that preserves users’ experience across traditional boundaries of devices, time and space. Users can interact with an application in a dynamic multistep sequence that may last for an extended period. The experience blends physical, virtual and electronic environments, and uses real-time contextual information as the ambient environment changes or as the user moves from one place to another. Organizations will need to consider their customers’ behavior journeys to shift the focus on design from discreet apps to the entire mesh of products and services involved in the user experience. “Designing mobile apps remains an important strategic focus for the enterprise,” said Cearley. “However, the leading edge of that design is focused on providing an experience that… …Read More…
