In 21st century, Internet and browser are almost as common as text book and chalk board. Projects funded by DARPA have provided significant technologies that influenced many non-military fields, such as computer networking and graphical user interfaces in information technology. She leads the emerging markets strategy in the Digital Home Group, driving what she considers to be critical to the future of computing. Such time consuming analyses fail to provide any useful insight in to customer behavior or trends in sales.
As the researcher, I believed that this study will be best framed by Roger’s Diffusion of Innovation,” Schlossberg’s Theory of Transition,” and Bridges’ Transition Model.” I have chosen to use these theories because they explain how technology is spread, adopted or reacted to by users. Our business support partners are KPMG, Mewburn Ellis LLP, and the University of Cambridge’s Judge Business School. The sharing of information can help shape the technology both in function and use.
Often used in combination, the ‘Essential Eight’ emerging technologies identified from our analysis reflect the development of increasingly autonomous, intelligent and connected devices, and the blurring of the physical and virtual world. Software defined everything will result in true interoperability standards, forcing individual technology suppliers to abandon working in silos with proprietary standards. Nano technology is important because it will have massive effects across every area of life.
Tracking more than 150 different technologies and using our own Emerging Tech Focus tool and method we identified those that are likely to make the biggest impact over the next five years or so. As part of that process, we took into account criteria including: the speed of tech take-up; the scale of public and private investment; the potential for the technology to go mainstream; its global reach; its technical viability; and its industry relevance across more than one sector.
Category III types codes are temporary codes for new and emerging technologies. With only 25 minutes of instruction time for each group, the technology I regularly utilize is the mobile computer lab. This is where the importance of management information technology training to understand the potential impact of technology from a business perspective comes into play.
