Aragon Research Releases Top Ten Technologies for 2022 and 2027
By Betsy Burton
I am so excited to get to share with all of you that Aragon Research has released its top ten technologies for 2022 and 2027.
This list is intended to help business and technology leaders make the best investment decisions over the coming years by highlighting some of the high impact and transformative technologies that are emerging in 2022 and 2027.
Most of the analyst firms only create a list for the top technologies emerging in the following year. However, many organizations have 3–7-year planning horizons. And, in fact, some government organizations have 5–10-year planning horizons.
Without these strategic planning insights, business and technology leaders/planners are left in the dark when making longer term investment decisions.
How Does Aragon Research Determine These Lists?
Aragon Research brings together all the research we have on Hot Vendors, Globes and Tech Arcs. We also look at our Aragon Innovation Award Winners.
Additionally, we also do primary and secondary research into what is emerging within university labs, start-ups, and corporate innovation labs. We evaluate all this information and rank the technologies based on their availability, business impact and their maturity.
Clients are encouraged to work with their business and technology leaders to explore and understand how they can integrate these trends and technologies to increase their business value and strengthen their business operations.
Key 2022 Findings and Predictions
In addition to highlighting the top technologies for 2022, Aragon Research identified critical findings and made several key predictions:
