The researchers analyzed more than 150 technologies and spent more than 10,000 man hours to generate 42 predictions about the future of information technologyThe purpose of the exercise was to re-evaluate our own approach to R&D and to help our clients prioritize their investments in and use of technology innovation to drive business performance. The team concluded that developments in four major technological areas—intelligent device and sensor networks, analytics, human to computer interaction, and new approaches to system building and integration—will dominate the future of information technology..........
