Summary: Aragon Research introduces its 2015 Technology Arc for the digital workplace. This third edition features 16 new technology profiles and updates to 37 others.

This is our third edition of the Aragon Research Technology Arc™ for the Workplace. This
report helps you identify important technologies, choose the ones to monitor, and determine
their potential benefits. It also adds extra dimensions that help you decide when, why and
how you should adopt them.
Workplace technologies are morphing into cloud and mobile enabled applications that can
be accessed from anywhere and any device. As change is occurring rapidly, new categories
of applications are emerging that reflect a shift from pure technology to business
applications that embody business logic and enable specific business processes.
The 2015 Technology Arcs feature emerging classes of applications that either extend or
replace an existing category due to enterprise needs, or focus on specific tasks in the
business. These applications are business outcome based. An example is predictive lead
scoring, which uses analytics to score inbound sales leads automatically.


This Technology Arc is part of our archived research. Read our latest digital workplace coverage to get the most up to date insights.
