We covered a plethora of topics in 2021, from augmented reality to blockchain, smart buildings to connected cars, agriculture 4.0 to Web3, growth ventures to software strategies. We've listed our top ten essays, podcasts and webinars of 2021 below. We hope you enjoy and have a happy and healthy end of the year.

OK, we're kind of cheating with this one as it was published at the end of 2020, but in a year that was unpredictable in many ways, our six research trends for 2021 and beyond still hold true today.

Covid-19 may have slowed supply chains, but it hasn't slowed growth. We looked at the role software should play in Machine and Equipment OEMs' growth strategies and what combination of build, buy or partner they should strive for.

With the announcement of the break-up of the General Electric company, the era of diversified industrial enterprises appears to finally be coming to its end.

If we’ve learned anything in the last thirty years, it’s that siloed information and non-interoperable systems aren’t the solution to anything. We looked at the state of smart cities and what they need to truly become smart systems.

Smart Cities 260x130

We explored the keys to unlocking the value in Smart Homes and catalyzing adoption. They include open data, innovative business and revenue models, and collaborative ecosystems.

We are finally reaching a tipping point: smart energy and future energy systems are finally (almost) here.

The Time Has Come 800x400

We loved recording our forward-looking podcast with M12's senior strategist, Lee Feldman and the essay inspired that by that conversation. We covered a broad range of topics, including today's biggest technological growth opportunities.
