ITONICS has been named as a Sample Vendor in three areas within the Hype Cycle: Continuous Foresight, Trendspotting, and Technology Trend Radars.

Continuous Foresight

As per Gartner, "Continuous foresight leverages the best practices of strategic/corporate foresight and futurism to continuously assess and evaluate business models and strategies, and determine how to adjust either or both to create future success". Continuous foresight prioritizes ongoing, collaborative efforts to spot and analyze external change and disruptions, proving essential for agile strategy formulation in volatile settings. Explore how ITONICS is pioneering data-driven foresight.

Weak Signal Scouting in Foresight


Trendspotting involves the identification and assessment of trends with potential organizational impact. Trends, which embody external forces like technological or social shifts, reflect market dynamics largely steered by evolving consumer behaviors and needs. ITONICS stands at the forefront, enabling businesses to adeptly scout for these weak signals and decode shifting consumer landscapes. Delve into how ITONICS is revolutionizing trendspotting.

Technology Trend Radars

Gartner states, "A technology trend radar is a custom visualization that shows when technology trends are expected to impact and potentially disrupt the enterprise". Such radars empower enterprises to foresee future implications, prioritize initiatives, and break down informational silos.
