Gartner Hype Cycle report looks at cloud computing

Wednesday, August 12, 2009 4:40 am

The familiar hype cycle report from Gartner has been released for 2009. The NY times published a nice summary article that highlights some of the findings (including where Gartner stands on Twitter).

Of interest to the library techies may be the report on cloud computing. Cloud technologies on the rise include Cloud-based email and enterprise wide use of cloud computing while both virtualization (running multiple ‘computers’ on a singe set of hardware) and Software as a Service (Saas) are both rising on the ‘Slope of Enlightment’ according to Gartner. A great example of SaaS is our Serialssolutions subscription.

Another interesting report focuses on trends in higher education. Items rising on the list include digital preservation of research data, use of open source software, and mobile learning while Cloud email is just emerging from the ‘Trough of Disillusionment.’

There are reports on all sorts of information issues and topical areas so head on over to the full report & enjoy. To get into the above links, first visit the Gartner login page. After that each of the above links will take you directly to your resource.

  1. I always find the hype cycle useful. Thanks to notifying us of the newest one!!

  2. You’ll need to use the Find a Database link to be authenticated into Gartner: http://go.libproxy.wfubmc.edu/Login?url=http://databases.zsr.wfu.edu/?purl=1446

  3. I clicked through to the reports and was invited to purchase them.

  4. Pooh – Gartner links are not great:
