ThoughtWorks released their 2013 Technology Radar.

 

The radar captures the output of the Technology Advisory Board’s discussions in a format that provides value to a wide range of stakeholders, from CIOs to developers. The content is intended as a concise summary. We encourage you to explore these technologies for more detail. The radar is graphical in nature, grouping items into techniques, tools, platforms, and languages & frameworks. When radar items could appear in multiple quadrants, we chose the one that seemed most appropriate.

We further group these items in four rings to reflect our current position on them. The rings are:

  • Adopt: We feel strongly that the industry should be adopting these items. We use them when appropriate on our projects.
  • Trial: Worth pursuing. It is important to understand how to build up this capability. Enterprises should try this technology on a project that can handle the risk.
  • Assess: Worth exploring with the goal of understanding how it will affect your enterprise.
  • Hold: Proceed with caution.
