- Major Studies
Computer Economics publishes an annual study on technology trends worldwide, along with in-depth reports on technology adoption and investment trends for each technology, as well as special reports on technology trends.
This is our annual report on technology trends, which provides an overview of current adoption trends, investment trends, and customer experience for a variety of new and popular technologies, as well as special reports on technology trends.
This study is based on a survey of 212 IT organizations worldwide conducted from September through December 2021. The IT organizations were asked about their technology adoption plans for the 18-month period stretching into the first half of 2023, as well as their return on investment and total cost of ownership experience over the previous two-year period.
Our current survey covers 14 technologies and technology initiatives. We also look at 19 early adopter and future technologies to find out which new technologies are viewed as practical versus just hype.
