Expecting the future with 4SIGHT
451 Research has distilled two years of conversations with their clients, demand-side research and the insight of their analyst team into a planning framework that can help organizations take on the future on their own terms. It’s not a quadrant, a wave or a platform. It doesn’t admonish you with prescriptive technology imperatives. It’s our collective view of the most important factors shaping tomorrow, so we can begin to plan today. It outlines trends that are pushing them and the assesses the maturity of the technologies that are behind them. We have identified four key "forces" that define all the trends we foresee: Universal Risk, Invisible Infrastructure, Pervasive Intelligence, and Contextual Experience.
