Gartner’s hype cycle for 2009 was released last week.
Cloud Computing is part of the technologies at “the peak of inflated expectations”. Remember that this time last year, cloud computing was classified as a “technology trigger”.
Can we expect a “plateau of productivity” for 2010? Why not? In 2008, Gartner was already considering mainstream adoption of Cloud Computing to be between 2 to 5 years away and the odds are still good today.
The same hype cycle was released for Business Intelligence & Performance Management topics. Here are the details.
