The Next Big Things: Placing Bets on Emerging Topics for IDC European Research In 2020

This IDC study focuses on what IDC Europe considers to be the key emerging technologies for 2020 and their impact on technology domains and industries. It highlights what the IDC European analyst community expects to be the six "next big things" characterizing the technology landscape in the coming years, and it briefly describes the incubation process followed to get to those. "Our research into emerging topics has shown that it's not just new technologies such as edge or blockchain that will affect Europe's tech markets in 2020," said Giorgio Nebuloni, Associate Vice President IDC Europe Emerging Technology and Verticals. "Related concerns, such as digital ethics and IT's impact on society and the role it can play to address climate change will play a massive role on product roadmaps, M&A activity, and the communication strategies of tech vendors and end user organizations alike."
