Hype Cycle


I came across this interesting ‘hype cycle’ thing in a blog post and I thought I would share the idea with you…

A hype cycle is a graphic representation of the maturity, adoption and business application of specific technology.

Since 1995, Gartner has used hype cycles to characterize the over-enthusiasm or “hype” and subsequent disappointment that typically happens with the introduction of new technologies. Hype cycles also show how and when technologies move beyond the hype, offer practical benefits and become widely accepted. According to Gartner, hype cycles aim to separate the hype from the reality, and enable CIOs and CEOs to decide whether or not a particular technology is ready for adoption.

So if Virtualization in general and VDI in particular are new technologies, where do we stand from a Hype Cycle PoV ?
