Why Read This
Forrester began summarizing technology trends last year to help enterprise architects create their organizations' technology watch lists. For this year's list of top trends, we've used the same criteria — impact, newness, and complexity — but we've modified the categories, merged related topics, added five new trends, and updated all the entries with this year's perspective. This year's categories? "Empowered" technologies, process-centric data and intelligence, agile and fit-to-purpose applications, and smart technology management. Also new this year are the results from a survey we ran as input to this report that asked respondents to rate more than 40 technologies for impact to their organization in the next three years.
