Note that the Internet of Things has replaced big data at the top of the “peak of inflated expectations” (see Gartner’s 2013 Hype Cycle). Both will take another 5 to 10 years to reach the “plateau of productivity” in Gartner’s estimation. Data Science is a new category for Gartner’s Hype Cycle this year–IMHO, it’s more a new discipline than an “emerging technology”–and it’s interesting to see that Gartner gives it a shorter time-to-maturity (2 to 5 years) than big data. This rapid ascendance is helped by the numerous undergraduate and graduate programs answering the demand for data scientists and the fact that it is evolving out of established practices and existing educational programs in business analytics, operations research, statistics, and computer science.
