Dion Hinchcliffe wrote a piece on The Enterprise Technologies to Watch for 2015 that is worth looking at. There are some things that you might disagree with but overall it covers emerging technologies well.
Some examples I’d move around are:
3D printing – Dion has it in the tactical space and granted the technologies available today are likely tactical but the learning curve for 3D printing technologies is rapidly expanding and providing more options and applications each year. I’d call it strategic for many organizations who normally don’t think of themselves as manufacturing
If there is one space that appears underrepresented (to me), it’s biotech and life sciences. The combination of genetics and big data techniques… will impact every business, even if it is just through the health of its employees.
I’d also include blockchain and its effect on cryptocurrency, finance, government… there is more here than just bitcoin.
The great thing about a list like this is that it causes you to think about what’s new, where the technologies stand and where they will likely be headed.
