ISACA The Pulse: Emerging Technology 2021

May 25, 2021 - I was given an opportunity from ISACA as a member of the Emerging Technology Working Group to review and provide additional insights on the recently released survey on Emerging Technology. This is a landmark survey where ISACA sought out feedback from its membership on specific emerging technology trends, training, and implementations, to identify and establish a baseline of what constitutes an emerging technology, as these definitions can vary from person-to-person or between organizations.

Generally, I am cautious when it comes to drawing conclusions from industry surveys as it is impossible to know for certain if all respondents are interpreting the questions as we have constructed. Accordingly, it may be necessary to rely on multiple metrics or indicators that can potentially point to similar outcomes before drawing final conclusions. A complete work of my analysis of the survey can be obtained from this link.
