The global key trends for 2018 brought about some significant changes in innovation and technology and my predictions on the below were spot on.
- Cloud Computing
As 2019 approaches, technology trends that I expect to disrupt, shift and change the way you do business. The world of technology and innovation does not stay still for one moment. All around the world, there are different time zones and people are creating solutions that are solving problems. Business models are changing and therefore businesses of all sizes should be aware of and profit from.
Technology delivered wither by cloud based or managed services are at the forefront for the 2019 trend. The application of game changing technologies is becoming ever more pervasive and their adoption is growing steadily all over the world. In 2018 I predicted the rise of AI, Blockchain, Robotics and Virtual Reality which have started to come to the forefront and deliver compelling solutions for many businesses. This trend is going to be accelerated in 2019.
Disruptive technology trends will propel the future, no industry will go untouched by digital transformation. One of the innovative technologies that has seen a lot of investment over the last year is blockchain. And over the next few years we expect identity management to move into a blockchain environment, offering a solution to many of the current challenges and, in addition, opening up an entire new value chain, centered on identity.
Artificial intelligence and machine learning will play a significant role in how IT teams can engage and empower entire organizations. By gaining the right insights they can point out to an employee that the tools and applications available deliver everything they require to carry out their job function. Alongside using AI, applications themselves will continue to get more intelligent and help improve the user experience and streamline business processes.
The concept of human mobility is fueling the future. A radical transformation in the automotive industry are refining and redefining existing technologies and introducing new, exciting concepts like artificial intelligence and the connected car to give us a driving experience that will be like nothing we’ve ever known. A connected car is a car that is equipped with Internet access, kitted with special technologies that tap into the internet or wireless LAN and provide additional benefits to the driver.
Robotics is set to grow exponentially over the coming year which will revolutionize customer experience. We are seeing a rapid adoption of robotics in industries and into new markets. There will be a significant adoption in markets like food and beverage, warehousing and logistics. Robotic firms are producing robots that look more human like and comfort levels will be dependent on culture and location.
By looking at theses trends and adopting them to your organization, you will give yourself a chance to outperform the competition.
Tech Trends for 2019 are:
- Artificial Intelligence
- The Connected Car / Self Driving Cars
- Vehicle Ownership Dynamics / New Business Models
