How to spot and where to look at when it comes to disruptive innovations, that is what the video clearly explains by an Harvard Business Publishing interview with Scott Anthony, President of Innosight. Before giving the key points from the video, a brief comparison between disruptive- and sustaining innovations . The counterpart of disruptive innovations are sustaining innovations, the two are layed out and discussed in Clayton Christensen and Michael Raynor’s book The Innovator’s Solution . Sustaining innovations take what exists and make it better, companies can sell products for higher margins to their best target ...
The Innovation Hype Cycle | Impulse für Innovation
Gartner consults in the field of information technology, and they developed the hype cycle in the 1990s as a way to visualise the phases the media go through when reporting on a new technology. Gartner claims that, in 1999, they used this tool to predict the Internet bubble of 2000. According to the Gartner model, media coverage of a new technology goes through five distinct phases: Trigger . The new technology is presented to the world, for example as a scientific discovery or a product launch. Inflated Expectations . In the second phase, a large amount of publicity generates over-enthusiasm and unrealistic expectations. ... market research, surveys and trends
IPad Android And Cloud Computing On The Gartner Hype Cycle ...
The world of technology continues to innovate and new versions almost quarterly tech these days. Much did not even make it to the mass market and quickly fade into the background and some are just a figment of our small size. Google Wave example was massively hyped before its launch in early 2010, but does anyone who got an invitation to use it? For most of us the answer is no, but why is this and what was wrong? To illustrate why some innovations disappear after a period of hype, hype cycle, Gartner shows the general trend of adapting new technologies in the Gartner hype cycle divides into 5 stages: Gartner hype cycle stages 1. ... market research, surveys and trends


Trends in Blog Usage and the Hype CycleTechTicker | TechTicker
“According to a 2008 survey by Technorati, which runs a search engine for blogs, only 7.4 million out of the 133 million blogs the company tracks had been updated in the past 120 days. That translates to 95 percent of blogs being essentially abandoned, left to lie fallow on the Web, where they become public remnants of a dream — or at least an ambition — unfulfilled.” Looking past the seeming sense of perverse satisfaction the author takes in documenting the fall from grace of the blog (and the fact this post is oddly categorised in the “ Fashion and Style ” section of all places), these stats do point to ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
The Hype Cycle and Mobile Banking, 2009
The diversity of the crowd was fantastic - people from all over the world and all sorts of business - from mobile network operators to vendors to financial institutions. It might sound corny, but Hannes Van Rensburg captured the mood quite well: “A general spirit of: ‘Let’s build the industry’ rather than criticise each other prevailed.” (Mobile Payments have arrived) Today’s the second and final day of this year’s Mobile Money Summit , and the key words here are data and partnerships: Data - around the market opportunity for mobile money - by the year 2012 CGAP and GSMA estimate there ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Hope, Hype, and VoIP: Riding the Library Technology Cycle
After the initial hype is past, the real value of an emerging technology unfolds as librarians adopt, test, and learn from it on the ground. By understanding a tool’s practical library affordances and how they are adopted, adapted, and rejected, we can better evaluate its local promise critically, creatively, and with an eye toward sustainability. The long-term adoption cycle of one established tool, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), offers actionable insight into the library innovation process. Web voice and video are old news: Skype’s international popularity is established, voice and video chat proliferate, embedded ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
The Soft Innovations of London's “Cycle Superhighways”
"Trixi" mirrors help drivers of large vehicles see cyclists at intersections. Physical infrastructure is only one component in London's "cycle superhighways" initiative. Photo: I Bike London Earlier this week, London launched its first two "cycle superhighways" to decidedly mixed reviews. First announced by then-mayor Ken Livingstone in 2008, the cycle superhighways haven't quite lived up to the expectations for safe and fast bike travel implied by their name, as you can see in this BBC News video . The superhighways are quite vulnerable to intrusion from motorists and they look like pretty standard bike lanes -- ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

We often think of inventions as something created by one person from nothing. In reality, new ideas are usually the result of teams working together and reassembling already existing concepts. When these reassembled pieces are put to use, they become innovations, new ways of doing things. Ideally, we work in an organizational climate that encourages ...

Longevity for Nexus One Customers vs. iPhone Customers - Android Help
I have read quite a bit about the Nexus One both Positive and Negative.  I purchased the phone somewhat reluctant but I feel like this phone does for me what iPhone does for my friends.  However, I just read an article on-line that said Sprint is not going to carry the Nexus One and that the Nexus One is coming to the end of its days. Why would this be true if the iPhone can continue to reinvent itself and keep its customers around for years to come?  Surely Google can do this with Nexus One. The Nexus One is an experiment. I  would expect that you will continue to get support and software updates like the iPhone for as long as ...
Are e3 spark plugs the best spark plugs to purchase?
Spark plugs have long been a popular area for "innovation" of this sort. One of the latest comes in the form of the E3 spark plug featuring its DiamondFire electrode. This one falls into the plausible-but-unlikely category. Writer Larry Edsall recently undertook the latest iteration of a 5,000 mile annual road trip and decided to try out the E3 plugs. While E3 claims a 3-5 percent improvement in mileage, Edsall found his dipped from 20.11/19.98 the previous two years to 19.18 with the E3 plugs. He did all the usual maintenance like oil changes and tire pressures before leaving. Of course the vehicle was a year older ...
