Today we will review the technology trends of 2023 as per the report of Gartner, one of the industry’s most renowned technological research and consulting firms.
Gartner IT Symposium was chosen for the presentation of the report. This is an event where the most important CIOs and IT executives get together to discuss the next steps of top organizations and their implementation of technologies.
The technological trends of the future year will allow companies to have more operational flexibility when it comes to solidifying their position in the market and against competitors. The main objective of these trends is to enhance a brand’s position with innovative processes instead of always relying on expenses restraint or personnel layoffs.
Digital transformation makes up a central part of the future trends in technology, and it also includes matters such as environmental, social, and governance issues that respond to subjects of importance for a large array of clients, mainly future generations.
Without any further ado, let’s dig into the top technological trends for 2023:
According to CEOs who responded to a recent Gartner study, after profit and revenue, investors now place environmental and social reforms in the top three of their priorities. To achieve sustainability targets, executives must increase their investment in creative solutions to address these demands. To achieve this, businesses need a new framework for sustainable technology that boosts the product and energy efficacy of IT services. The idea is to help companies become more sustainable through tools like traceability, analytics, renewable energy, and AI, while at the same time offering solutions to assist clients in with their own sustainability objectives.
More than 40% of large enterprises worldwide are expected to use a combination of Web3 and augmented reality (AR) technologies by 2027. Where will these technologies be based? In the metaverse.
According to Gartner, the entire metaverse won’t belong to any one provider and will be independent of any one gadget. It will feature a separate virtual economy made possible by digital money and NFTs.
And just like the internet has revolutionized industries such as online gaming, with traditional enterprises such as land-based casinos successfully migrating to the digital realm with platforms offering every single casino game in their online versions, including guides, game explanations, and safety info for players, the metaverse could take this even further. The benefits such as mobile compatibility, credit card payment, or the no-deposit bonuses that allow players to bet without their money will be able to be further developed with the new technologies.
Adaptative Artificial Intelligence
Adaptive artificial intelligence (AI) systems may quickly adjust to changes in real-world situations thanks to the use of real-time feedback to update queries and goals. Solutions for adaptive AI can be used for many various use cases, such as fraud, risk management, and marketing in a wide range of different industries, including banking, lending, telecommunications, and insurance. They are ideal for operations where quick changes in the outside environment or shifting company goals call for an optimum reaction.
The user can use and remove the various component tools (mini-apps) that make up a super app as necessary, making it similar to a Swiss army knife. Super apps are popular because customers want mobile experiences that are strong and simple to use, especially for the younger generation who were born in the smartphone era. Over half of the world’s population will be daily active users of numerous super apps by 2027, according to Gartner.
Microsoft Teams is experiencing huge growth by taking the remote working organization to the next level with integrated video calls, messaging, working groups, and a ton of added features like dashboards and collaborative whiteboards.
The same goes with other apps like Slack, very popular among younger generations and startups. The next generation of super apps will improve dramatically the productivity of workers in a company.
Software engineers in many businesses struggle to get their code into production because of several manual processes.
Platform engineering is a technique that businesses may employ to make the most of their cloud platform so that engineers can bring value to production with speed and dependability.
In other words, the platform engineering team supports the company by organizing, creating, and overseeing its cloud platforms. Software engineers and other IT experts inside the firm can then make use of such platforms to deploy and run software in production in a secure, effective, and dependable manner.
