2010 Gartner cycle: Hype or Reality?

It’s interesting to see the hype cycle for 2010 from Gartner and their perception of the industry in 2010.  It’s interesting that blogging has disappeared, Microblogging is well on the way to becoming ubiquitous and the private cloud will be the Next Big Thing…

Thinking about the Rise of Social Commerce conference I attended to the other week, I think that Augmented Reality will come to the fore much quicker than Gartner predict – especially with the anticipated social shopping platforms that will be built in the next couple of years by , innovative partners, more and more social analytics tools will emerge, with more in depth and more holistic views of the conversation relevance and sentiment. I also think that Video search will be available within the next couple of years.

It’s interesting to see the differences between this Hype Cycle and the 2009 graph  So much has moved on, and changed.  So what do you think?  Is this graph more accurate than the 2009 graph?  or have Gartner imagining life as the IT world would with it to be?

Will be interesting to see how these play out…
