Hype Cycle for Higher Education, 2022

Friday, October 28 | 8:30AM–9:15AM MT | Mile High Ballroom 2A3A, Ballroom Level
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Presentation/Panel Session

Hype Cycles and Priority Matrices offer a snapshot of the relative market promotion and perceived value of computing innovations. They highlight overhyped areas, estimate when technologies and trends will reach maturity, and provide actionable advice to help organizations decide when to adopt. We’ll also review technologies and their readiness and potential for assisting your institutions with optimizing or transforming the organization. In this presentation you’ll learn how strategists and planners can evaluate the market promotion, business value, adoption rate, and future direction of technology innovations; how to leverage the Priority Matrix that accompanies each Hype Cycle; how to evaluate the potential benefit of each technology and determine investment priorities; and how to establish the expectation that most technologies, services, and disciplines will inevitably progress through a pattern of overenthusiasm and disillusionment, followed by eventual productivity.
