Gartner analysts are busy finishing their 2012 hype cycles and passing them over to our editing team. The whole special report will be published in August. Jackie and I are helping people with the finer points of hype cycle crafting – making sure positions are sharp and all moves are well explained. This year we expect to have nearly 100 hype cycles profiling close to 2000 technologies and related innovations. The breadth of coverage will grow again.
We are hoping to deliver new hype cycles in several topic areas including Big Data, In-Memory Computing, The Internet of things, Contact Centre, Human Capital Management, Cloud Service Brokerage and Strategic Business Capabilities.
