reThink Research Agenda

Each year, the neXt Curve research team defines the agenda that will focus our research and advisory efforts and services for the year.  We arrive at six primary research themes that are identified through our continuous interactions with technology and business leaders and analysis of emerging digital technologies and ICT market trends that are shaping the transformative edge of industry digitization and business reinvention.


Our research agenda is fluid and focuses on the topics that are shaping our Digital Future and are important to enterprise end users, technology vendors and consumers. The six primary research themes represent a study of the intersects of a wide range of ICT technology trends and emerging business and IT practices. Collectively, our primary research themes are geared toward providing a cross-domain, holistic perspective on how the overall ICT market is evolving and white space opportunities that will emerge along its leading edge for enterprises and technology vendors.

ICT Trends and Research Domains

Though we factor emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, digital twins, Blockchain and others into our research and points of view, we consider the broad influence of these technologies on more strategic aspects of the evolution of the ICT landscape and their current and future application in business and industry reinvention.
