Gartner Hype Cycles provide a graphic representation of the maturity and adoption of technologies and applications, and how they are potentially relevant to solving real business problems and exploiting new opportunities. Gartner Hype Cycle methodology offers a view of how a technology or an application will evolve over time, providing a sound source of insight to manage its deployment within the context of specific business goals.

According to the analysis by Simon F. Jacobson in the Hype Cycle for Process Manufacturing and PLM, 2014 report, "cloud services will ultimately help manufacturing operations create, improve or sustain manufacturing improvements; provide multisite and multitier visibility; scale more effectively than traditional, on-premises approaches; and contribute toward a flexible and agile manufacturing network."

In the Hype Cycle for Supply Chain Execution Technologies, 2014 report, Simon F. Jacobson and Ray Barger, Jr., present the following business impact: "Supplier quality information is critical to corporate quality, supply chain, operations and engineering functions. These functional organizations can leverage supplier quality data to confirm corporate compliance with product and service requirements and regulations."

Michael Lyle, president and CEO, InfinityQS, said, "To ensure quality in the complex global marketplace, manufacturers are looking to gain a better understanding of each aspect of their supply chain. Technology, especially cloud-based systems, allows manufacturers to collaborate with suppliers all over the world and monitor the quality of each component in real time and identify areas for continuous improvement."

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
