    I would say so, yes. :wink:

    If you were to use it, what do you think it would mean?

    I want to say that the technology is full-grown / well-established / developed.

    Quick Google Check - Apparently this is some sort of "industry phrase" or collocation/expression of sorts.

    "The technology is mature."

    "The technology has matured."
