Journey to digital business

This year Gartner sees “the journey to digital business” as the key theme.

Gartner defines this as a focus on the convergence of people, business, and things. The Internet of Things and the concept of blurring the physical and virtual worlds are strong concepts in this stage. Physical assets become digitized and become equal actors in the business value chain alongside already-digital entities, such as systems and apps.

Digital humanism —the notion that people are the central focus in the manifestation of digital businesses and digital workplaces.

Gartner’s Hype Cycle features “technologies that are the focus of attention because of particularly high levels of interest, and those that Gartner believes have the potential for significant impact,”

Nexus of Forces (mobile, social, cloud, and information).

“Autonomous” represents the final post-nexus stage. This stage is defined by an enterprise’s ability to leverage technologies that provide humanlike or human-replacing capabilities.
