What are the 10 top strategic technology trends, 2022 — and why are they valuable?

The year 2021 is proof that the disruptions brought on by the epidemic are here to remain. This indicates that the digitaltization and virtualization of business and society will continue to increase. As we enter the new year, however, the demand for sustainability, ever-increasing data volumes, and faster computation and network speeds will reclaim their position as the essential drivers of digital transformation. Will we witness long-term changes or short-term alterations as another year influenced by the epidemic ends? Here are the top 10 technology trends that will rule in 2022.

  1. Behavioural Internet (IoB)
    The Internet of Behaviors collects and uses data to influence behavior (IoB). Industrial sites, for example, have used computer vision to assess if employees were following mask procedures and then collected this behavioral data to be evaluated by companies to persuade individuals to obey government regulations at work. IoB can collect, aggregate, and process information from a variety of sources, including:
    Public-sector agencies handle data from citizens.
    Data on commercial customers
    Governmental organizations
    Use of social media
    It’s in the public domain.
    Tracking your location.
    This approach has been assisted by the rising complexity of the technology that processes this data.
  1. Automation of Intelligent Processes
    ‘Anything that can be automated, should be automated,’ is the basic premise of robotic process automation. We’ve discovered something even more intriguing this year: Intelligent Process Automation. In a word, IPA enables bots to benefit from AI, Big Data, and Machine Learning capabilities, allowing them to learn and improve over time. This aids in the evolution of these clever bots from the ‘If-this-then-that’ rule. Investment in IPA will reach $232 billion by 2025 as automation usage grows.
  1. Mesh of Cyber Security
    The rising number of cyber-attacks demonstrates that cyber security standards have various flaws and vulnerabilities. The issue is worse as more employees work from home and access business infrastructure via their own devices. Cyber Security Mesh is a comprehensive approach to tackling security flaws and gaps associated with end-users and devices outside network perimeters.
    Cyber security mesh takes a novel approach to digital security by allowing companies to create security measures based on a device’s identification rather than its proximity to secured connections. It employs a distributed structure rather than constructing a perimeter based on the reach of a network. When dealing with a large-scale remote workforce, it appears to offer a solution to the constraints of standard security methods. As a result, in months and years, we will provide a more scalable kind of cybersecurity.
  1. Intelligence in Decision Making (DI)
    Decision intelligence (DI) is an ancient technology trend with a few variations. Using DI, business choices may be described as reusable and straightforwardly, resulting in increased efficiency and a faster time to value. This will be accomplished by applying artificial intelligence that augments human intelligence. According to projections, one of the third largest corporations will adopt DI for better and more organized decision-making in the next two years.
  1. Autonomic Systems
    Self-managing physical or software systems that learn from their surroundings and dynamically adjust their algorithms in real-time to maximize their behavior in complex ecosystems are known as autonomous systems. Autonomic systems are a type of technology that can support new requirements and scenarios, improve performance, and protect against threats without human involvement.
  1. 5G Wireless Networks
    One of the most far-reaching tech issues organizations will have to grapple with is the 5G network standard deployment. China and South Korea are already building 5G networks. The rest of the world is following behind, except the United States, which continues to impose limitations on businesses like Huawei, one of the world’s leading 5G innovators. The goal of 5G is to provide high-bandwidth internet access by combining current 3G and 4G networks. 5G networks are a critical component of IoT and Edge Computing because they allow IoT devices to analyze and distribute large amounts of data in real-time, decreasing the need for server farms.
  1. Immersive Augmented Reality Experiences
    Augmented reality (AR) is an extension of virtual reality (VR) into everyday life. Initially designated for gaming and entertainment, augmented reality (AR) has lately made its way into the commercial world, with marketing, education, and even defense applications. Through immersive experiences that target multiple senses, companies utilizing AR expect to boost customer engagement and happiness. AR is ready to disrupt business as we know it, from navigation applications to virtual stores and interactive marketing events. According to some estimates, augmented reality could grow to be a multibillion-dollar business in the future, and early adopters are hoping to seize the chance by releasing AR content as soon as this year.
  1. Cybersecurity is important.
    Cybercrime is a bad aspect of contemporary technology, ranging from phishing schemes to hostile cyber strikes. Cybercrime is a significant threat to companies of all kinds, as well as their unwitting customers. As a result, cybersecurity companies are racing to build technologies to battle the growing danger of sophisticated cyber-attacks. The use of AI for cybersecurity is one of the research areas and for a good reason. Only artificial intelligence (AI) can respond, adapt, and mitigate the danger of cyber assaults as they occur in real-time. The three core aspects of AI cybersecurity are training machine learning models on current cyber attack data, automating responses to cybersecurity assaults, and predicting future attacks based on prior ones.
  1. Total Immersion
    To drive growth, a whole experience strategy incorporates employee experience, customer experience, user experience, and multi-experience across numerous touchpoints. Through comprehensive management of stakeholder experiences, the whole experience may create increased consumer and employee confidence, happiness, loyalty, and advocacy.
  1. Cloud-Native platforms
    Cloud-native platforms are technologies that enable you to create new application architectures that are robust, elastic, and agile, allowing you to react quickly to digital change.
    Cloud-native solutions improve the typical lift-and-shift approach to the cloud, which misses out on the benefits of cloud and complicates maintenance.

Last Thoughts

Although trends come and go, reputation, trust, and loyalty endure, being ahead of the curve is critical in these uncertain and competitive times. I’d be delighted to discuss your needs or how you see these trends fitting into your organization.
