Strategic technologies of the future

10 key technologies for 2013

Gartner presented its list of 10 strategic technology trends for 2013 at its Gartner Symposium/ITxpo this week. The IT research firm defines a “strategic technology” as one likely to have a significant impact in the enterprise over the next three years, whether that impact be “a high potential for disruption to IT or the business, the need for a major dollar investment, or the risk of being late to adopt,” Gartner officials said.

David Cearley, vice president and Gartner fellow, said that converging forces of social, mobile, cloud are disrupting old business models and creating the basis of the technology platform of the future. He advises that enterprises make “deliberate decisions” about how these technologies will fit with their expected needs.

The top 10 strategic technologies are:

1. Mobile device battles.
2. Mobile applications and HTML 5.
3. Personal cloud.
4. Enterprise app stores.
5. Internet of things.
6. Hybrid IT and cloud computing.
7. Strategic big data.
8. Actionable analytics.
9. In-memory computing.
10. Integrated ecosystems.
