Gartner top 10 strategic technology trends comparison from 2017 to 2019

I’ve recently seen that Gartner published their “Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends for 2019” already in October 2018 and decided to compare them with the top trends from 2018 and 2017 to get an overview how the topics have changed over time. In the following table I listed the top trends from Gartner of the last three years and tried to group the trends by color.

“Digital Twins” and “Blockchain” are the only two trends which are listed three times within the last three years.
