Members of CompTIA’s Emerging Technology Community annually produce a list of Top 10 Emerging Technologies that highlights the products and services that offer the most near-term business opportuni- ty for the IT channel and those working in the business of technology.
The list is created using original research conducted by CompTIA through an online survey that crosses multiple industries and includes companies of all sizes. CompTIA’s research team analyzes the survey results and determines which emerging technologies have the highest adoption rates. This information is provided to members of the Emerging Technology Community, who further analyze each of the technologies from a market enablement perspective. The group considers additional criteria including which technologies have the most significant revenue opportunity or the best chance to revolutionize business practices, finalizing a list of top 10 technologies.

In fact, AI functionality is now embedded in many of the things we do, buy and make every day. Business Opportunities in Emerging Technologies: Artificial Intelligence, a white paper authored by CompTIA’s Emerging Technology Community, will provide technology solution providers with a better understanding of both the technology and the market opportunities that exist today, and how to prepare solution providers to capitalize on those opportunities.
