I’m excited to announce we just published our 2017 edition of Forrester’s top technology trends to watch. This report continues to be one of our most popular reports, and I’m privileged to lead it every other year. This report was our biggest collaboration ever; we included four co-authors and dozens of analysts contributed. It highlights our most provocative technology trend research and links directly to several dozen of our best reports.
Our Top Technology Trends Fall Into Three Phases
This year we stayed with a framework consisting of three trend phases: dawning trends that just a few visionaries seem to really get, trends in the awareness phase that enterprises are hearing about but still grappling with, and acceptance phase trends that most firms are on top of. Use our list below along with our phase and speed assessments to see if you are ahead or behind:

Here is a short video that provides some additional color on a few of my favorite technology trends and some background on the report. I also talk about how we plan to link this report to our new portfolio of technology vendor research. Also, see Carrie Johnson’s blog post on this important development. I invite you to watch it and reach out to me if you have any questions.
