The Gartner Hype Cycle is a graphical depiction of a common pattern that arises with each new technology or other innovation, published by Gartner, which is an information technology research and advisory company. Introduced in 1995, the hype cycle characterizes the typical progression of innovation, from overenthusiasm through a period of disillusionment to an eventual understanding of the innovation’s relevance and role in a market or domain. The five phases in the Hype Cycle are Technology Trigger, Peak of Inflated Expectations, Trough of Disillusionment, Slope of Enlightenment and Plateau of Productivity. They highlight overhyped areas and estimate when technologies and trends will reach maturity. Each year, Gartner creates more than 90 Hype Cycles in various domains as a way for clients to track technology maturity and future potential.
