Module 2 - Disruptive Technologies from Gartner’s Hype Cycle–YOUR NAMEAppendix Figure 1: 4 Components of Disruptive Innovation Created by myself using the following resource: Christensen, C. M, Raynor, M., & McDonald, R. (December 2015). What is Disruptive Innovation?
Securing the Next-Generation Data Center with Software-Defined Security. Gartner. -center-with-software-defined-security/The above illustration from Gartner highlights some of the benefits of using SDS which will continue to improve security within datacenters, protecting against ever-growing threats and allow employees easier access to monitor and counter against suspicious activity as well as easily integrate additional servers and datacenters, or move their servers and data centers to new locations.
Module 2 - Disruptive Technologies from Gartner’s Hype Cycle–YOUR NAMESummary of Learning To be perfectly honest, I had not heard of the Disruptive Theory of Innovation before this module. After having gone through the module, I find myself wondering if new products and services I see in TV commercials, for example, are disruptive theories, or, conversely, which are simply innovations. My boyfriend and I actually had a conversation about Christensen’sexample of Uber not being disruptive in the sense of cabs; however, how it might be disruptive for black car services. My boyfriend brought up the point that in San Francisco, Uber’s “hometown”, the Yellow Cab Company recently filed for bankruptcy. After doing some digging, I found that Yellow Cab had far more issues than just app-based ride-sharing, but this module certainly has me thinking about technological advances, especially those on Gartner’s Hype Cycle, and whether or not they are disruptive, or if, like King and Baatartogtokh’s article, am I just reaching and throwing the disruptive innovation label on anything? One more final thought I had been after exploring this module is wondering if a disruptive innovation can both not be new and not be in a low foothold. Can you have a disruptive innovation that meets a need for mid-range or high-level customers that incumbents currently aren’t serving?
