Technology trends are evolving rapidly. CIO/CTO/ CISOs and other IT Infrastructure leaders are involved in the modern-day enterprise. They are preparing themselves and organizations for technology trends of 2019 that will add value in digital business transformation.
The focus of these leaders is on delivering products and services that support and enable an organization’s business strategy. The strategic technology trends have substantial disruptive potential that is commencing to break out of an emerging state into broader impact.
According to Gartner “The Intelligent Digital Mesh has been a consistent theme for the past two years and continues as a major driver through the technology trends of 2019.
Inspira Enterprise – The Leading IT Solution Provider, with its center of excellence in Cyber Security, Blockchain, Robotic Process Automation, Cloud, Networking, Smart City and Healthcare solutions, have forecasted these technology trends of 2019 that would change how human interact with each other.
Top 10 technology trends of 2019
Autonomous things like robots, drones and autonomous vehicles use Artificial Intelligence (AI) to mechanize and automate functions that were initially performed by humans, is one of the most critical technology trends of 2019. They are technological developments that bring computers into the physical environment as autonomous things without direction by humans. They freely move and interact with humans and other objects. Their automation goes beyond the automation offered by rigid programing models. They exploit AI to offer cutting-edge behaviors that interact naturally with the surroundings and people.
Augmented Analytics is a method that automates insights using machine learning and natural-language generation to transform how analytics content is developed, consumed and shared. It is disruptive technology in the data and analytics market. Augmented analytics will be a key feature of data preparation, data management, modern analytics, business process management, process mining and data science platforms. Data and analytics leaders should adopt augmented analytics as its capabilities mature.
The market is shifting rapidly from an approach in which professional data scientists’ partner with application developers to create AI-enhanced solutions to a model in which the developer can function alone using predefined models provided as a service. This offers the developer with an environment of AI algorithms models and development tools to integrate AI capabilities and models into a solution.
A digital twin is digital representation of a real-world entity or system. Organizations will implement digital twins to improve their ability to collect and envisage the right data, apply analytics and rules, and respond effectively to business objectives.
The edge are the endpoint devices used by people or embedded in the world around us. In Edge computing the information processing, content collection and delivery, are placed closer to the endpoints. The goal is to reduce traffic and latency. The edge computing will evolve as complementary model where cloud services will be managed as a centralized service. It will be executed on centralized servers, distributed servers on-premises and on the edge devices.
The conversational platforms, Virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR) and mixed reality (MR) are changing the way in which people interact & perceive the digital world, these are fast growing technology trends of 2019. This shift in perception and interaction models is leading to the future of immersive user experience.
Over a period, we will shift from individual devices and fragmented user interface (UI) technologies to a multichannel and multimodal experience. The multimodal experience will connect people to the digital world across hundreds of edge devices. The multichannel experience will use human senses and advanced computer senses across these multimodal devices while multi-experience environment will create an experience in which the surrounding space will define “the computer” rather than the individual devices.
Blockchain is distributed ledger, a public record of all bitcoin transactions that have ever been executed, this one of the technology trends of 2019 that has been in existence since last one year. Blockchain has capability to reshape industries by enabling trust, transparency and reducing friction across business ecosystems. It has potential to lower costs, reduce transaction settlement times and improve cash flow. At present the blockchain technology and concepts are immature and many blockchain initiatives today do not implement all the traits of blockchain.
The physical or digital environment in which humans and technology-enabled systems interact is known as smart space. It is open, connected, coordinated and intelligent ecosystem. The multiple elements like people, process, service and things come together in a smart space to create immersive, interactive and automated experience. It is combining with elements such as smart cities, digital workplaces, smart homes and connected factories. The integrated smart city solutions along with smart automation is among the most important technology trends of 2019.
Digital Ethics and Privacy
It’s a growing concern for individuals, organizations and governments. People are concerned about how their personal information is being used by organizations in both the public and private sector. Organizations not proactively addressing these concerns will face problems.
It operates on a quantum state of subatomic particles like electrons and ions that represent information as quantum bits (qubits). IT Leaders should start planning for QC and understand how it can be applied to the real-world business problems.
