Internet2’s Chief Innovation Office compiled a market view of trends in Information and Communications Technology (ICT) that are of importance to the research and education community. The key trends were determined based on their potential economic value in 2025, their importance and potential for the research and education community, and the large amount of data they will create or utilize that will need to be communicated over various networks.

Though we’ve combed industry resources to develop this market analysis--the best input about how to support the business and technical needs of universities and combat challenges they face require feedback from community members. We want to hear from you, our valuable community members on how Internet2 can best support you. Tell us--what are some of the most pressing challenges at your university? What keeps you up at night?
