Technology is evolving with every passing second. Things that were beyond our imagination just a couple of years ago have today become mainstream realities. This exponential growth of technology has revolutionized many businesses and it has drastically altered the IT landscape.
In this post, we will talk about five such technology trends that are constantly reshaping the IT industry. It is imperative to keep pace with these in order to stay ahead of the curve. Let’s explore.
- Internet of Things (IoT)
IoT is indubitably one of the biggest and most prevalent tech trends that has emerged in the recent years. IoT is a network of physical objects, may it be any building, device, vehicle, etc. that are integrated with an electronic chip, sensors and internet connectivity, which enables them to interact with one another by exchanging data. It showcases the perfect synchronization of the digital and physical world.
With an increasing number of devices becoming connected every day, the practical applications of IoT in the real-world are also on the rise. One of the most prominent applications includes the Smart Home technology, where multitudes of devices are interacting with each other by leveraging internet connectivity. Such a house will be built around an intelligent control and monitoring system that will provide the users with greater ease of managing their daily tasks with a high level of efficiency. There are so many IoT app development companies are available in the market you ca contact for all kind of IoT solutions.
- Cloud Computing
A lot of you must have heard of the term cloud computing but aren’t really sure of what it actually means or perhaps what purpose does it solve. Well, cloud computing is a provision for storing data in a centralized information database that can later be accessed from any internet-enabled device. For instance, this cloud-based data storage system can be used to store your important work files, which can be accessed by your personal desktop, tablet device or smartphone individually.
The amazing technology of cloud computing has drastically altered the IT scenario. It has helped tech companies in improving their products and services along with bringing augmented efficiency in their internal communications. Through the system, the entire team force can stay in constant touch with each other and access the company’s files from any remote location.
- Big Data
Another significant technology that has immensely impacted the IT industry is the evolution of Big Data. It is an efficient system whereby business organizations can gather necessary information about their customers, their needs and preferences and eventually analyze the information to make accurate predictions on the company’s behalf.
The detailed information gathered about the customers, their purchasing trends, markets, etc. allows the organizations to tweak their products and services to meet the expectations of their target audiences. They stand the chance of suitably altering their marketing strategies and offerings according to the users and thus, beat the competition.
Thus far, big data was largely used by big scale organizations that had enormous budgets and a colossal client base. However, now, owing to the rapid rise in technology, it is predicted that this technology is soon going to be more attainable to the small and medium-sized business organizations as well.
- Artificial Intelligence
Right from aiding the process of data extraction in digital assets to allowing companies proffer their users with a highly personalized and tailored experience, Artificial Intelligence has massively transformed the face of IT industry. It has helped the organizations in interpreting the enormous stockpiles of information and drive user-centric business models.
AI has also powered the technology behind autonomous vehicles, and this technology is on the verge of being applied to the public transport. This will lead to the reduction in the number of accidents on the road, lesser traffic congestion, and reduced energy costs. The concept of autonomous cars is in testing and very soon self-driving cars by renowned companies such as Google, Uber, and Tesla are expected to hit the market.
- Wearable Technologies
Wearable technologies essentially refer to the specific pieces of technology that have evolved from continuous miniaturization of computer technology. These pieces are small, light-weight and flexible devices that can be unobtrusively worn by the users. The most prevalent example of such devices includes Google’s Glass and Apple’s Watch. These devices bring together the functionalities of a smartphone and make them available on a highly portable device for complete access on the go. A lot of organizations are experimenting with this technology and releasing utilitarian products such as wristband fitness trackers and other wearable devices to monitor patient’s health.
This technology is predicted to greatly impact the IT industry by changing the way people interact with each other and the world around them.
To conclude, it is not possible to precisely predict the exact impact of these emerging technologies on the impending IT industry, however it is certainly beneficial to be aware of these developments and actively integrate them in your business model. This is a sure shot way of constantly improving your business model and staying one step ahead of the competition.
