Re: hype cycle
Susan industy development is what the industry (e.g. vendors/press/analyst/blogalyst or those who like something new to talk about) talks about as being adopted, getting traction, awarness and coverage or awarness. otoh, industry deployment is what the customer actually eventually adopts and deploys.
Have a look at these, hopefully that will help to clarify as it is rather straigtforward ;)
Hope all is well, good to see you at UBM now...
