The model will shift from one of technology-literate people to one of people-literate technology Brian Burke, Gartner

Gartner defines a strategic technology trend as one with substantial disruptive potential that is beginning to break out of an emerging state into broader impact and use, or which is rapidly growing with a high degree of volatility reaching tipping points over the next five years.

These strategic technology trends and their combinations have the potential both to create opportunity and to drive significant disruption, it states.

The analyst firm lists the top 10 technology trends that enterprise architecture and technology innovation leaders must evaluate over the next year.

Through 2025, technologies related to these trends will experience significant changes, cross critical tipping points and reach new levels of maturity that expand and enable repeatable use cases and reduce risk, according to a new report by Gartner analysts David Cearley, Nick Jones, David Smith, Brian Burke, Arun Chandrasekaran and CK Lu.

“Technology innovation leaders must examine the business impact of our top 10 strategic technology trends and seize the opportunities to enhance existing, or create new, processes, products and business models,” they advise.
