Research Agenda

Each year the Advanced Technology Group and others in NetApp’s Corporate Strategy Office identify the top technology tends to investigate and explore. These trends influence our research agenda for collaborating with partners in the research community including NetApp Faculty Fellowships and internships.

These are trends and not fads, so many of the trends remain on the list from year to year, while new ones are added and others are removed or merged as more is understood about each of the trends.

Trends that are in the experimental or emerging phase are the most suitable for research collaborations as these are the more speculative and least understood within the industry.

The trends in the established phase are well understood within the industry, but are considered important to NetApp’s business and worth tracking for important new developments, and selectively NetApp may consider research collaboration.
