Here is a summary of the Gartner Hype Cycle for “Emerging Technologies”
for 2012 – what is stated explicitly, what can be inferred.
This Hype Cycle is suppose provide insight into emerging technologies that
have broad, cross-industry relevance, and are transformational and high
impact in potential.
Most crowded hype cycle on emerging technologies in last 10 years
48 technologies are listed in this year’s hype cycle which is the highest
in last ten years. Last year they had 42 – year 2008 was the lowest (27)
– year 2005 was the previous highest (44).
What does this imply?
May be Gartner is right when it says:
We are at an interesting moment — a time when the scenarios we’ve been
talking about for a long time are almost becoming reality.
Which macro trends are stated explicitly in the report?
Any Channel, Any Device, Anywhere — Bring Your Own Everything Smarter
No individual can really track and understand the impact of change in all the
emerging technologies like Cloud Computing, Mobile Computing, Social Media,
Agile Methodology and Big Data …
You can realistically aim to have an in depth understanding of only a small
subset. By in depth understanding I mean you know significantly more about
the subset than a person who has spent about an hour Googling the topic.
Let me talk about the subset that I have been exploring in depth and why.
Cloud Computing: How is the cloud value proposition changing over time?
Mobile Computing: What are the options to handle multi-platform application
development challenge? Social Media: How is Hyper-connectivity changing out
life? Agile Methodology: How Agile can co-exist with Outsourcing?

Will 3D printing really change the world?
“Just like the Industrial Revolution, the assembly line, the advent of the
internet and the Social Media phenomenon, 3D Printing will be a game
changer” – Forbes: Will 3D Printing Change The World? (2012 March)
[Update: September, 2012: MakerBot Unveils Next-Gen 3D Printer, And First
Retail Store ($2,199 and $2,799)]
Since the impact is impossible to predict, let me just give you the facts
about where the technology stands today.
3D Printing technologies have been around for more than 20 years. However,
the technology is slowly becoming more affordable.

Cloud computing must have been brushing up on its bedside manner.
HIPAA requirements now stipulate everyone in the health-care industry must
begin migrating patient records and other data to cloud computing. By 2015,
all medical professionals with access to patient records must utilize
electronic medical and health records (EMR and EHR), or face penalties.
A recent study by MarketsandMarkets revealed the health-care cloud computing
market, which is only currently about 4% of the industry, is expected to grow
to nearly $5.4 billion by 2017. The cloud migration process, however, can be
daunting for health-care organizations since they have to move an incredible
amount of data, according to an article on Forbes.com.
Cloud service providers are now offering a variety of new ways to access
information via cloud applications and microsites designed for mobile
devices. To ... (more)
In Shelly’s awesome post on 3D printing,he hints at a future where spare
parts will live on files and not shelves.
It completely upsets our notion of manufacturing, where commodities are
tangible objects. Physical would become virtual. The question would then
become: open-source or closed-source?
What’s the Difference?
Open-source software and application-development tools are available to
anyone for free over the web. Could open-source CAD/CAM files be the same?
(There are already plenty of free designs available online at sites like
As a real-world example, let’s take a look at the bicycle manufacturing

motorcycles or fighter jets, e... (more)
This week at the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2013, Gartner unveiled their top
predictions for 2014 and beyond. Here they are:
Digital Industrial Revolution (3D printing and its impact on manufacturing
and IP) Digital Business (social, mobile, analytics, cloud, code halos and
their impact) Smart Machines (self-learning machines and artificial
intelligence) The Internet of Things (network centric operations, situational
awareness, etc.) These predictions align closely with what I have been
writing about and teaching for the past 12 months. However, I have not
covered the "Digital Industrial Revolution" in the context of 3D printing.
I will have to start paying more attention to that area. I blame some of
my inattention on those that came up with the term "3D Printing." When I read
the word "printing" I lose interest. I guess I need to start being

International CES 2014 is in the history books, and it was the most exciting
CES in recent memory. 3D Printing, Connected Living, Fitness Tech, Wrist
Revolution, 2 in 1 PCs, Intel RealSense™ and Qualcomm’s open source All
Joyn™ alliance are just a few of the highlights I’ll cover in this
multi-part CES wrap-up. But let’s start with 4K, Ultra HD TV sets.
The industry would like you to purchase a new 4K set as soon as possible. The
fact that there is very little content to play on it is of little concern. 4K
is the new, new thing and every manufacturer has a line of Ultra HD TV sets
for you to choose from.
If you were at CES this year, you would have seen several curved LED 4K sets
and even a “bendable” LED set from Samsung (the 85U9B).
Should you buy one? Let’s discuss…

HD (or 2K) is commonly specified as 1,920 pixels across and 1,020 ... (more)
3D Printing technology came of age at this year’s International CES. From
printed drum shells to collectables to jewelry, 3D printers were doing it
3D Systems announced the Cube 3, which they say will be the world’s first
sub-$1,000 3D printer. It features a resolution of 75 microns, which is
almost four times the resolution of current generation sub-$2,000 printers.
Objects printed with a resolution of 75 microns are almost smooth to the
touch – which is practically unheard of in consumer-priced printers.
One thing that caught my eye was a 3D printed dollhouse, created by Jesyca
Durchin and her colleagues at Nena Media. The cat in the picture belongs to
one of her colleagues. It was scanned with a $399 hand scanner that 3D
Systems calls the Sense. It allows you to quickly scan any three-dimensional
object up to 10 square feet and quickly create a printable ... (more)
Several years ago, any amateur inventor or designer with a plan to create an
injection-molded part or product had to have a budget big enough to equal
their ambition. Those same people today are now finding that what was
previously out of reach due to the cost is now something that’s both
achievable and greatly less expensive. The 3D modeling manufacturing process
is what has brought about these changes in the manufacturing world and is
having a growing impact among established companies and entrepreneurs.
The possibilities are enormous and fashion designers, engineers and musicians
are pushing the boundaries of manufacturing projects. The tasks and abilities
possible today are beyond what was available less than a decade ago and
it’s created a do-it-yourself subculture known as the maker movement,
which consists of jewelry makers, crafters, sculptors, teachers and e... (more)
