    I have trouble understanding the S curve

  2. J.D. Meier says:

    @ Dragan — Just think of it as the letter "S" lying on its side.

    It's a chart that curves like an S because of the ups and downs over time.

    When you first introduce a technology, the business value is down, because it's big investment but low adoption.  Over time, adoption rises, so the business gains more value.  Then over time, the value diminishes either as adoption slows, or the technology gets commoditized, or it gets replaced or displaced.

    That makes sense. Thanks
