The Gartner® Hype Cycle™ for Edge Computing allows CIOs and IT leaders to cut through the market hype about technology investments that help support business strategies in an unpredictable environment where every expenditure matters and must demonstrate a return on investment.
This latest Gartner Hype Cycle analyzes 31 technology innovations, explaining in turn why each is important, its business impact, drivers and obstacles, user recommendations, and finally Sample Vendors.
Edge computing success in the retail and industrial sectors reflects the evolution of IoT and distributed computing, while IT-driven use cases are developing. I&O leaders should use the technologies in this Hype Cycle to support both near-term implementations and still-emerging edge applications.
The Gartner Hype Cycle is a graphical depiction of a common pattern that arises with each new technology or other innovation. Each year, Gartner creates more than 90 Hype Cycles in various domains as a way for clients to track technology maturity and future potential. The report covers the five phases in the Hype Cycle: Technology Trigger, Peak of Inflated Expectations, Trough of Disillusionment, Slope of Enlightenment, and Plateau of Productivity.
