4 emerging trends of the real-time Web

Bernard Moon, managing director of the Lunsford Group, writes on his blog Silicon Moon that there is a lot of hype surrounding the real-time web, and much of the feeding frenzy reminds him of the RSS space four years ago — though there is a lot of potential, there is also a lot of noise. How do you navigate through it all and which developments should you be paying attention to? What are the emerging trends for companies and entrepreneurs to watch for? Here are four real-time web trends that he is tracking:

Real-Time Collaboration is Ripening
Real-time will play a major role in the future of online collaboration.

2. Real-Time Analytics Will Be Hot
The reality right now is that there isn’t enough critical mass of real-time data in most areas, but when those tipping points are met, watch this space.

3. Real-Time Search is Looking Up
There are many opportunities for startups in the space, especially as public life streaming activities increase (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, IMs) and real-time search moves to vertical categories.

4. Real-Time Ecommerce is Coming
As retailers move closer to real-time inventory management, they’ll improve on their pricing and sales efforts since they will be able to create more efficient price equilibrium adjustments.
