We’re at the beginning of a brand new year and a whole new decade. While 2019 was full of tech breakthroughs in the fields of AI, fintech, and more, we can’t wait for what 2020 has to offer.
Look out for another breakout year in artificial intelligence, IOT (Internet of Things), 5G, and more this 2020, as tech companies continue to find ways to allow technology to make a bigger, more positive impact on our day to day lives.
We list up some technology trends that will continue to improve and develop in the year 2020 (and in the next decade).
While cloud computing is nothing new, it will continue to grow as a key part of how we deliver and use software. Gone are the days when companies needed to invest heavily in computing power when they launched a software system. Today, a few clicks is all it takes.
According to CRN, cloud computing will continue to make advances this 2020, as software as a service (SaaS), IT Ops, analytics, and business intelligence all become smarter with the advances in artificial intelligence and machine learning technology. This means brand new ways to efficiently deploy and scale your software systems with minimal overhead effort.
With the age of 5G fast approaching, mobility is set to continue to grow in 2020 and beyond. According to MobileAppDaily.com, we can expect new ways to interact with our mobile devices this year. With the advent of beacon technology, growing trend in wearable devices, and increased usage of AI and IoT technology in apps, expect more brand new and unique mobile app experiences in 2020.
When you hear about “blockchain”, it’s common to instantly associate it with the cryptocurrency trend that grabbed headlines throughout the 2010’s. While blockchain was, in fact, a key technology used in implementing cryptocurrencies, the world is now realizing more applications for this technology. This is becoming particularly relevant as privacy and security continue to be growing concerns in today’s interconnected world.
According to VentureBeat, both the U.S. and China are now finding more practical ways to use blockchain technology to prevent information leakage and Internet fraud. Of course, this is not limited to these countries. All over the world, blockchain technology has become a realistic solution to the big issue of security. This 2020 (and beyond), expect a wider use of blockchain technology in software you use on a daily basis.
An interconnected web
APIs have made it possible for different software systems on the web to easily interact and exchange data with each other. As a result, you’ll notice a lot of the software you use daily has options to connect and exchange information with other systems (quick example, logging in to almost anywhere with your Facebook and Google account).
As it becomes easier and expected for different software systems to work with each other, expect faster and more groundbreaking evolution in software, as developers no longer need to code everything from scratch. Likewise, a focus on collaboration (instead of competition) can be expected to become norm, as tech companies – from startups to the giants – openly share their systems with each other to continue to push the envelope on what software can do.
