Tech Page One

MAKING HEADLINES


It's official: The Internet of Things takes over big data as the most hyped technology
Forbes
Gartner recently released its latest Hype Cycle for Emerging Technologies. Last year, big data reigned supreme, at what Gartner calls the "peak of inflated expectations." But now big data has moved down the "trough of disillusionment," replaced by the Internet of Things at the top of the hype cycle. In 2012 and in 2013 Gartner's analysts thought that the Internet of Things had more than 10 years to reach the "plateau of productivity," but this year they give it five to 10 years to reach this final stage of maturity. The Internet of Things, says Gartner, "is becoming a vibrant part of our, our customers' and our partners' business and IT landscape."
