DataOps, Software 2.0 And Other Tech Trends You Can’t Afford To Ignore

There is nothing worse than a good idea that never sees the light of day.  

Just this past week, Gartner released its Hype Cycle for Emerging Technologies.  The research piece does a great job highlighting the ideas that are spurring innovation at enterprises: “AI augmented software engineering”, “composable networks” and “self-integrating applications” made the list.

McKinsey and Company also published its “Top 10 tech trends” this past week, pointing to ideas like “next-level process automation and virtualization”, “applied AI” and even “Software 2.0”, a trend referring to the scaling of data-rich, AI-driven applications through “machine-written programs”.

Many of these ideas are big and bold. Most sound exciting.  But some could be overwhelming for tech leaders.  The CIOs I talk to confess that they often feel bombarded by such ideas on a daily basis.  If they don’t read about them online, they hear about them from their boss, co-workers or the consultancies their firm hired to help them innovate.
