Since the CompTIA Emerging Technology Community was launched three years ago, its flagship initiative has been releasing an annual Top 10 Emerging Technologies list, focused on identifying which emerging technologies have the most potential for near-term business impact.
“Think of the Emerging Technologies Top 10 as our Emerging Technology Community’s collective view and collective ranking of what we see as the top emerging technologies that offer a measurable, one-to-three year opportunity for both customers who are implementing these technologies as solutions to their challenges or market opportunities and to IT channel companies who are building those solutions to deliver to the companies,” said Mike Haines, director of partner incentive strategy at Microsoft and chair of the Emerging Technology Community’s Executive Council, during a recent episode of the CompTIA Biz Tech Podcast where he provided an in-depth overview of this year’s list.
The Emerging Technology Community developed this year’s list by forming a subcommittee that was tasked with researching the technology landscape, assessing the marketplace, and determining if an emerging technology had near-term opportunity for solution providers. The 2020 Emerging Technologies list includes:
1. Artificial Intelligence
3. Internet of Things
4. Serverless Computing
6. Augmented Reality / Virtual Reality
7. Natural Language Processing
9. Quantum Computing
