Gartner’s Hype Cycles 2011

Technology Trigger: A tech breakthrough gets the ball rolling. Commercial viability is uncertain.


Peak of Inflated Expectations: Early publicity and a few success stories create buzz. Most implementations do not succeed, however.


Trough of Disillusionment: Interest wanes as experiments and implementations fail to deliver. Lots of companies fail.


Slope of Enlightenment: 2nd and 3rd generation versions start to emerge and bigger companies start to fund pilots.


Plateau of Productivity: Mainstream adoption starts to take off. The technology’s broad market applicability and relevance are clearly paying off.
