Summary

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.
