My responsibility is tracking emerging technologies. With an IT telescope in NYPA’s crow’s nest I scan the horizon for dawning technologies that have potential to produce shining affects in our organization. My scanner looks at trending, innovative, and developing, technologies that will be available in the near term and far term. I then examine each to see if it matters to us and if successful outcomes could be beneficial to improve or positively change our business model.
I have targeted the following emerging technologies for our organization to seriously consider for 2020.
Overall almost 200 technologies have been identified that are emerging, whether in the near term, midterm or much further out. These technical advances have some relationship or potential relation to our business. No organization can take on all technologies. In fact a Forrester analyst advised me that more than 10 to 20 technologies are unreasonable for any organization to consider implementing in any reasonable amount of time to expect successful outcomes.
