Technology Adoption Success Triangle
The Technology Adoption Lifecycle and Gartner’s Hype Cycle models are well known in the industry for helping companies make better and informed decisions about technology adoption and deployment. Both have influenced companies world over, however they address only two dimensions – technology maturity and adoption.
However, organizations also need to evaluate technology on the basis of the Technology Benefit Cycle. The emphasis or focus here is on how much ground an organization can cover across the ‘Technology Adoption Success Triangle’. This ‘Triangle’ encapsulates an understanding of how new technologies are spread and get accepted by their followers and how these technologies are useful in making technology selection decisions to benefit organizations in true sense. Organizations need to understand and evaluate where their technology adoption efforts are moving to, in terms of achieving actual goals and transformations.
In my latest article for Cloud Computing & Big Data Journals, Technology Benefit Cycle: What Gartner & Geoffrey Moore Aren’t Telling You, I intend to draw attention towards this important dimension, the ‘Technology Benefit Dimension’ that helps us understand how new technology adoption is going to benefit an organization.
