It’s no secret that technological innovations are bound to happen. However, before these can be identified, extensive research is conducted first before they can be projected. One such organisation that conducts such activity is Gartner.
In 2022, Gartner predicts that the tech sector will experience the first rise in the level of the workforce as a result of the increasing number of open IT positions. Beyond that, the current technologies that we have right now will expand even further.
This article will discuss the upcoming trends Gartner forecasts for 2022, so read on below to get started.
Artificial Intelligence (AI)
AI will transform our lives by helping people in their everyday lives by implementing bots that can assist them in communicating and making decisions through advanced software.
By 2022, the use of AI will reach a point where most consumers will have experienced it in some form. Gartner predicts that by 2022, 25% of all AI-driven user interfaces will be considered “smart.”
AI will not just revolve around human-like bots, but instead, they will improve on current technologies such as speech interfaces, IoT, and smart assistants. They will be able to provide smart services and have advanced AI algorithms that can solve otherwise unsolvable problems.
Internet of Things (IoT)
IoT is expected to become an emerging trend that will soon prove that the benefits it provides are endless. Gartner also claims that IoT will be considered a “megatrend” that will have a substantial financial impact on multiple industries.
By 2022, Gartner predicts that healthcare organisations will significantly impact the economy due to the use of IoT. It will also help improve the lives of senior citizens by making their lives more convenient. Meanwhile, it will also be used in innovative city projects worldwide to improve the quality of living.
As of right now, the development of 5G is highly evident. Gartner has identified six technologies that will be implemented during inception. However, this year, 5G will start to reach maturity, which means that the networks will become more stable and support more services.
In addition, 5G will also become a lot wider, which means that more people will have access to it. It will also have a higher peak capacity and higher speeds than what we have right now.
In 2022, Gartner predicts that all organisations will better understand their data. The data intelligence revolution will also allow organisations to gain valuable insights from their datasets.
The best part about data intelligence is that it will allow organisations to create meaningful digital business models to lead to more significant business insights. It will mainly be used in organisations with a lot of structured data.
By 2022, Gartner predicts that businesses will use diverse applications, which is an indication that there will be a shift from the traditional design, deployment and support models. With that, stakeholders will need to embrace this new reality. It will also build a more agile and flexible IT environment that allows the deployment of application-specific platforms that solve a problem.
Gartner predicts that by 2022, enterprises will automate their operations to help increase their agility. With that, they will be able to design, build and deploy new applications in a matter of days.
Hyperautomation will also help firms create new processes and capabilities that will be useful in assisting the business in its digital transformation. Automation will also help firms to have better control over the operation of business activities.
Virtual Personal Assistants
Virtual personal assistants are a relatively new trend, so there’s plenty of room for them to grow. Organisations will use them to provide better customer service through personalised experiences.
VPA will also be used to improve productivity and will be able to provide better customer service. It will also provide a better and more personalised experience to the customers.
Cyberattacks will continue to be a serious threat to most organisations in 2022. Gartner predicts that there will be a significant rise in data breaches that are related to the internet of things (IoT). Hackers are also expected to use machine learning to increase the pace of their attacks. They will also use the vulnerabilities of chatbots to gain access and steal information from the victims.
Gartner says that to protect the business from these kinds of attacks, organisations should secure the IoT with a combination of devices, software, and services and incorporate AI into the security applications used to protect the business.
Gartner’s predictions for this year and the next five years are fascinating as they have contributed a lot to the evolution of technology. It also shows that there will be a lot of new trends to look forward to in the coming years, so it’s always a good thing that we’re aware of them.
