The Gartner Hype Cycle is a graphical representation of the maturity, adoption and societal impact of specific technologies. The hype cycle provides a view of how a technology or application will evolve over time, from the initial triggering event through to the eventual implementation and mainstream adoption.
The hype cycle can be used to understand where a particular technology is in its lifecycle, and to make decisions about when to adopt that technology. In general, technologies that are just beginning to enter the market are often overhyped, and may not live up to the initial hype. As the technology matures and is more widely adopted, the hype typically dies down.
Technologies that are further along in the hype cycle are generally more mature and may be more likely to deliver on their promises. However, even mature technologies can have issues and may not be right for every situation.
The Gartner Hype Cycle is just one tool that can be used to make decisions about technology adoption. It's important to consider other factors as well, such as the specific needs of your organization and the market trends.
