Gartner's 2014 Hype Cycle for Emerging Technologies

It's the 20th Anniversary of the Gartner Hype Cycle and maps the journey to becoming digital businesses, identifying and employing the right technologies at the right time.

From the release 11-August-2014:

The Hype Cycle for Emerging Technologies report is the longest-running annual Hype Cycle, providing a cross-industry perspective on the technologies and trends that business strategists, chief innovation officers, R&D leaders, entrepreneurs, global market developers and emerging technology teams should consider in developing emerging-technology portfolios.  
"The Hype Cycle for Emerging Technologies is the broadest aggregate Gartner Hype Cycle, featuring technologies that are the focus of attention because of particularly high levels of hype, or those that Gartner believes have the potential for significant impact," said Jackie Fenn, vice president and Gartner fellow. "Enterprises should use this Hype Cycle to identify which technologies are emerging and use the concept of digital business transformation to identify which business trends may result."   more

The next stage of development, according to Gartner is

Stage 5: Digital Business

Digital Business is the first post-nexus stage on the road map and focuses on the convergence of people, business and things. The Internet of Things and the concept of blurring the physical and virtual worlds are strong concepts in this stage. Physical assets become digitalized and become equal actors in the business value chain alongside already-digital entities, such as systems and apps. 3D printing takes the digitalization of physical items further and provides opportunities for disruptive change in the supply chain and manufacturing. The ability to digitalize attributes of people (such as the health vital signs) is also part of this stage. Even currency (which is often thought of as digital already) can be transformed (for example, cryptocurrencies). Enterprises seeking to go past the Nexus of Forces technologies to become a digital business should look to these additional technologies:

Bioacoustic Sensing; Digital Security; Smart Workspace; Connected Home; 3D Bioprinting Systems; Affective Computing; Speech-to-Speech Translation; Internet of Things; Cryptocurrencies; Wearable User Interfaces; Consumer 3D Printing; Machine-to-Machine Communication Services; Mobile Health Monitoring; Enterprise 3D Printing; 3D Scanners; Consumer Telematics.

I didn't have the chance yet, to look inside the report, but I am deeply convinced that innovations in news business (and journalism) are still urgently and thoughtful needed, we are not even halfway there. And I do not mean innovation as life-prolonging measure for long-standing and for more and more outdated for many people, especially the young (...), but innovations that help (and educate) users to develop and enhance their personal news consume pattern. From getting the news (the news finds me in time, at the right place, in context), absorbing, working, sharing and discussing (and expanding) on news and archive, retrieve, remix and re-"publish" such news in context ...  Today, I can (only) share the

Out: Innovations in Magazine Media 2014: Roadmap for Magazine Media Strategy

Today at the Digital Innovation Summit, Berlin the Magazine publishing association FIPP and the Innovation International Media Consulting Group presented the 2014 Edition of  the 'Innovations in Magazine Media' World Report.

Some key findings 
  • Native advertising is revolutionizing the world of content, advertiser-magazine relationships, advertiser-reader relationships, and revenue models
  • Big data is putting serious science and analysis behind every decision we make in magazine publishing, from content to advertising to new products
  • Mobile will be the dominant platform for information distribution and consumption and it is so revolutionary that some are calling it a “do-over” chance for legacy media who got the whole internet thing so terribly wrong 
  • Programmatic advertising suddenly appears on its way to becoming the way most ads will be sold and scheduled
  • Video has become the most effective, most powerful, and fastest-growing method of delivering content and advertising to the largest audience, all in ways that are increasingly accessible to all publishers.

The Innovations in Magazine Media 2014 World Report delivers on 156 pages great information on (e.g.)
  • Paywalls, content sales, eCommerce, mCommerce, programmatic advertising, publishing frequency, print innovations, personalization, Google Glass, eNewsletters, and more
  • BuzzFeed, Condé Nast, The Huffington Post, Atlantic Media, Virgin, Pepsi, Forbes, The Washington Post, Hearst, Microsoft, The Guardian, OgilvyOne, Nivea, Elle, and Netflix to name a few brands featured in the report
  • Insight from Google, ZenithOptimedia, Nielsen, Reuters, Digiday, eMarketer, and GfK.

The Innovations in Magazine Media 2014 report is available in print and digital here

Innovative Application: Automated Twitter Service NPRbackstory

How News service provider (e.g. Broadcasters, Newspapers) archives and a Twitter (alike) application creates a useful service, useful promotion of eCommerce.

In short you monitor what people search (Google, twitter search, Wikipedia stats), query your (or any other) archives and deliver (offer) relevant archived material to services people who might look for relevant stories and background ... and channels the might use to retrieve them

Four components work together

NPR's API (to access (NPR's) archive)
Google' Hot Trends (to sniff trends)
Yahoo Pipes (to create feeds)
Twitter (to deliver) @NPRbackstory

By no means, NPRbackstory algorithm isn't perfect yet, but...

[ NPR thats National Public Radio]

Don't stop here, thinking, o.k. that's for Broadcasters maybe Newspapers.

Imagine how it could work for you, if you are a / an

- publisher of periodicals (e.g. B2B, STM, SI, GI)
- book / music publisher / sellers
- libraries
- educational institutions
- political parties campaigning
- governments want to service / entertain your electorate
- journalist / editor
- advertiser / marketer

or what ever and implement it so it works for YOU!

Why aren't books more like websites?

Rastlos: Innovator & Suchender in Sachen Advertising

Google lässt einfach nicht locker. In dieser Woche die Ankündigungen

Advertising in Games (Beta, US only)

Seit ein paar Wochen gibt automatisch spielende, quasi aufgezwungene post-roll Advertising am Ende eines Videoclips.

Natürlich gelingt nicht alles. Die User sind kritisch und/oder ignorant, und du brauchst Mut und Melkkühe (oder Goldesel) um Versuch & Irrtum zu finanzieren. Aber wenn traditionelle werbefinanzierte Unternehmungen auch nur halb so innovativ wären, wäre mir nicht halb so bange um 'meine' Branche ...

Btw., seit gestern gibt es auch einen neuen Versuch YouTube mit Click & Buy eCommerce zu einem auch kommerziellen Erfolg werden zu lassen ...

"We're getting started by embedding iTunes and links on videos from companies like EMI Music, and providing product links to the newly released video game Spore(TM) on videos from Electronic Arts. ..."

Google Turns On Text Ads In Google Maps

Google to Sell TV Ads for NBC Universal Networks

Google stellt 400 lokale Anzeigenverkäufer ein

Gold Rush: Is YouTube Google Goldmine?

'The Bourne Ultimatum' goes Google

Google is testing Visual Ads in Search Results

Google verkauft Radio Ads für Clear Channel Radio

Nachdenklich: Fachmedien sollen mit Inhalten und Kundenbeziehungen - ihren Pfunden - wuchern

beschreibt Margret Schneider vom VDE-Verlag, in der neuen Ausgabe des 'Letter' dem Informations-Service der Deutschen Fachpresse, als die Botschaft, welche vom Fachpresse Kongress in Wiesbaden ausgegangen sei.

Der Text klingt so ganz anders als die Reports der Kollegen, die auf dem Kongress in Wiesbaden dabei waren. Zum Beispiel Ehrhardt F. Heinold: Parallelwelten einer Branche im Wandel: Der Fachpresse-Kongress 2008

Für mich ist 'unsere Pfunde' eine gewagte, eine gefährlich Formulierung, die sich hoffentlich nicht bestätigend auf das Verhalten von Fachmedien und Fachverlegern auswirkt. Nach meiner Vorstellung sind uns weder die Inhalte, noch die Kundenbeziehungen 'geschenkt', sie sind bestenfalls 'geliehen' zur Aufbewahrung, zum intelligenten, professionellem Umgang und zur sorgsamen Pflege. Inhalte, Beziehungen und Vertrauen können uns auch jederzeit wieder 'weggenommen' werden. Und sie werden uns ganz sich weggenommen und jemand anderem anvertraut, wenn wir mit diesen 'Schätzen' nicht zum Wohle und Vorteil unserer Kunden umgehen.

Unsere Geschäfte setzen auf präsumtiven Beziehungen zwischen Produkten / Dienstleistungen und den Nachfragern / Nutzern auf und um erfolgreich zu sein, müssen wir einen Mehrwert für diese Beziehung generieren und uns im Wettbewerb mit anderen messen (und messen lassen).

Natürlich weiß ich auch, dass es viel Traute kostet ein 'bewährtes Modell' über den Haufen zu werfen, solange sich der Leidensdruck noch in Grenzen hält. Aber auf Dauer wird es nicht gut gehen, die 'neuen Modelle' immer durch andere erfinden zu lassen und dann zu hoffen, diese neuen Wettbewerber rechtzeitig zu imitieren oder zu schlucken, bevor sie zu mächtig geworden sind.

Ich wünsche mir von den Fachmedien und Fachverlegern, dass sie die Innovationstreiber in Medien-Dienstleistungen sind und sich nicht auf ihren Pfründen ausruhen.

alles unter dem Datum 18.06.2008 auf

Die erste Nostalgie-Veranstaltung dieser Woche mit einer Zeitreise zurück in die gute alte Medienwelt (ja auch Gutenberg sind wir begegnet) und wie man sich im Gestern und Jetzt festklammert, ist vorüber.

Gefühlte 75 % ging es um die Debatte "Was die Öffentlich-Rechtlichen dürfen sollen, müssen sollen, können können bzw. was die Privaten können könnten, machen sollten, tun müssten aus dem Blickpunkt der Medien. Lobbyisten und Medienpolitiker und (großzügig) gefühlte 5 % darum was Print, Radio und TV tun können / müssen um ihre Brötchengeber nicht zu verlieren (die Öffentlich-Rechtlichen gebührenhalber ausgenommen).

Ganz sicher wäre es besser, zukunftsgerichteter gewesen, man hätte sich auf dem Pdium mit den Chancen (und damit auch den Risiken) von Print, Radio und TV im Internet beschäftigt und damit wie man geneigten Nutzern 'Brot und Spiele' anbieten kann.

Vielleicht hätte es auch schon gereicht, wenn der Moderator Kai-Hinrich Renner Format, Inhalt und Carrier ein wenig auseinandergehalten hätte und die Teilnehmer ein wenig informierter, kritischer und mutiger gewesen wären, ...

Ob's bei den Zukunftsgespräche des Inforadio des rbb - im Rahmen des Berliner Bücherfestes, am 21. Juni in Berlin
