Emerging in 2011

A very interesting hype-cycle from Gartner for 2011 – Emerging Technologies (as always).

Gartner Hype-Cycle

Big Data, Group Buying, Private Cloud Computing are some of the technologies which are believed to be 2 to 5 years away from mainstream adoption.

With the amount of data growing every day and different devices invented through which more data gets added every second, managing data becomes very difficult, if not impossible. Apache Hadoop is being used by many organizations now and it will not be a surprise if there is one organization which will lay claim to have the expertise to handle ‘big’ data. Will Yahoo be successful in this?

Group Buying – All of us have heard of Groupon and how Google tried to buy them for 6 Billion USD. Though there has been more controversy after the deal fell out of favor, there have been many clones that have cropped up across the globe. An interesting concept that will pick up once again with the entry of an established technology company.

Private Cloud Computing. The magic word ‘Cloud’. Gartner recently mentioned in their report for Cloud Computing 2011 that the hype was meaningless. Private clouds might still make sense for organizations who are skeptical of sharing data outside their premises.

What do you feel are the emerging technologies that you feel will cut through the hype?
