The 3rd generation of computing platform, the 3rd phase of the Internet, and the explosion of information are colliding to form a perfect storm of disruption and transformation

At the very bottom of the page we see the curved line representative of the growth in the amount of data collected, stored, and managed.

Next up we have the upward diagonal arrow blocks representing the generations of computing platforms. As depicted we are entering a new phase where the focus is on mobile platforms, mobile technology, mobile applications.

The top arrow blocks diagonally going down right indicate the various phases of the Internet. Weve gone from a stagnant Internet where the first websites were informational, but not interactive to the Web 2.0 phase where users could participate by adding comments and feedback. We are entering a third phase and the Internet of tomorrow is being built on technologies like cloud computing, social business, and mobile. This third phase of the Internet will handle billions and billions of connected computing devices as well as be able to enable the future of communication between humans and computers.

Back in the mid to late 1990s companies were just concerned with getting websites up so they could have a presence on the Internet. It was all about providing very basic information to the public. But soon the so called e-commerce trend arose and business was being conducted on the Internet. Then Web 2.0 came into play and all users realized that they could share their ideas, create content, and collaborate online.

These collision of these forces will require enterprises to be experts at using Advanced Analytics to uncover insights and make decisions6HorizonWatching: Top Technology Trends To Watch In 2013May 2013Source: Bill Chamberlin

Smarter AnalyticsIdentifying patterns, anticipating outcomes and proactively optimizing a response will be the basis for competition in the future. In the next 10 years, the companies that don't have analytics deeply embedded in their business model will most likely cease to exist. Gartner (link) 2013 HorizonWatchingCreative Commons Attribution LicenseHorizonWatching CommunityCloud computing is a key enabling technology for this next computing platform and the next phase in the evolution of the Internet.

I believe we are well into this next phase of the evolution where the enabling technologies will be cloud, analytics, mobile, video, and semantic capabilities. This so called Web 3.0 phase will provide applications that are much more immersive, social, and collaborative in nature. Its also this next phase will allow the Decade of the Smart planet to become a reality.

So this all is a lead in to my list of top trends to watch in 2012.When Smarter Analytics is applied successfully to this perfect storm of disruption and transformation, the world will become a Smarter Planet7HorizonWatching: Top Technology Trends To Watch In 2013May 2013Source: Bill Chamberlin
