Emerging Web Technologies

What is Emerging Web Technology?


To be "Emerging," the technology must not yet be universally accepted by the Web community, but its acceptance must be steadily increasing. Its level of acceptance can be low, but if it is steadily low and not increasing, then it could not be considered emerging. Its level of acceptance can also be high, but if it is extremely high, (even if its popularity is steadily increasing), then it would be considered an established technology and no longer emerging. So that is why it is a good idea to keep updating the list of technologies that can be considered emerging.

Who are the innovators of web technologies? past, present, and future


Bill Gates There wouldn't be much of an interest in the web if we didn't have a PC in every home and office with a GUI interfaced operating system on it. We can thank Bill Gates and his team for that.

Steve Jobs It can't go without being said that Steve Jobs was the one who pushed the envelope in web development by his innovative ideas and team at Apple and Pixar.

Accelerated Innovation


Accelerated Innovation refers to the rapid increase of innovation as a result of shared ideas through various media platforms on the Web. Viral Web content is available to millions on a global scale, which inspire and encourage ideas to take shape. Crowd Accelerated Innovation is a type of innovation eco-system that has evolved with the proliferation of the Web.

The Internet of Things


The Internet of Things refers to the ubiquitous connectivity of the Web. Where everyday objects (and perhaps someday people) are embedded with RFID technology, barcodes, or QR Code that allow scanner technology to download and/or upload data to the Web or database.

Web Dependency


The proliferation of Big Data has created a need to understand and interpret the data with Predictive Analytics and Data Mining tools. Currently, the large companies that can afford them are becoming more reliant on the technology to aid in their decision making. As the tools continually evolve to process higher level human thinking, and possible made accessible to small and medium-sized organizations, it remains to be seen how dependent decision makers will become on the technology.

Streaming Video


While streaming video has been with us for a long time, I feel that it has barely scratched the surface of its potential. I believe that it may eventually replace television altogether as our primary source of video entertainment and news.

Online Streaming gaming


The concept of online gaming is not new, but the notion that complex games can now be played through a browser is fairly new. An early adopter of this concept is Onlive.com
