Most Demanding Technologies in 2019

‘The science of today is the technology of tomorrow.’

Technology is creating massive changes in every aspect of our modern lives. This digital revolution is reshaping the world economy and the society we live in.

Here is an overview of a few technological trends which will have a major impact in our near-term future.

Data Everywhere

With the onset of internet there is a huge amount of data generated in our lives. The amount of data is growing exponentially. This is called the Big Data. Big Data, Data Science and Data analytics are interconnected fields which use processes, methods and various algorithms to extract information from the data. This can be used to make strategic business moves. The sectors big data can be used to excellent advantage are:

  • Business
  • Health care
  • Sports – Improving athlete’s performance
  • Research
  • Improving Device Performance
  • Financial Trading
  • Law Enforcement
  • Smart Cities
  • Marine Biology

Internet of things

IOT –    Everyday objects connected to the internet and recognised by each other has made this physical world one enormous information system. The data harnessed from the internet of things opened doors to new technologies which will continue to flourish in the coming year.

  • Smart home
  • Smart Cities
  • Wearable Technology
  • Smart Cars

This is changing the way business is carried out in the digital world.

Block chain

The distributed, encrypted, public ledger behind virtual currency (Bitcoin) making the early adopters filthy rich is a great leap forward in information storage and security. The key ways this trend can continue to cause a breakthrough in the future are

  • Usage outside of finance
  • Blockchain meeting IoT
  • Smarter Contracts
  • Government controlled crypto currencies.

Most of the initiatives in this area has a higher risk factor due to the potential dangers involved.

Artificial Intelligence

The core of AI is building machines capable of thinking like humans. This has led to creation of Robots which are capable of doing jobs faster than humans and with higher degree of accuracy.

  • Self-Driving Cars
  • voice Interfaces (like Echo, Alexa)
  • Robots used in healthcare
  • Gaming Industry
  • chatbots

D printing

3D printing has a scope of applications across many industries. This technology could help innovators create mocks of their ideas quickly and easily. It enables better prediction analysis and study of materials in general leading to better customization. The various areas this technology can make an impact are:

  • Printing houses
  • Printing Organs
  • Goods manufacturing

Cloud computing to edge computing

The technology which makes your smartphone smart. The cloud is the data/software residing on remote services and can be accessed via the internet. Cloud computing enables feasible infrastructure availability. On demand cloud computing platforms to individuals, companies and governments, on a paid subscription basis are on the rise. Eg: Amazon Web Services, Azure.

This technology can lead to

  • Bandwidth growth
  • Smaller mobile devices
  • smart countries
  • Advancements in education

DevOps is an amalgamation of the cloud-computing paradigms. This technology brings together developers and operations using the cloud. This brings more agility to development teams by enabling them to work in continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Delivery (CD) model.

Solar Technologies

Solar power can guard the economies from the rising energy costs and the impact of climate change.

  • Renewable energy
  • Energy efficiency in developing nations
  • Sustainable and cleaner environment

Intelligent Apps

Apps which learn and adapt from the interaction with an enterprise’s data on a real time bases have enabled humans to interact with machines. This is an application of AI and advanced machine learning. This trend can have a significant effect in

  • sales and marketing
  • supply chain
  • HR

Cyber Security

Cyber Security is a challenge as the physical world is getting digitized on a larger scale. With the evolving services built around digital data the cybersecurity landscape needs to keep up with the change.

Digital Marketing

Internet being everywhere more businesses and people are going online to attract customers. Multimedia, creative, influential and customised marketing is on the rise to pursue customers to buy products.

These emerging technological trends, particularly artificial intelligence and machine learning, will see jobs change, and even disappear. The increasing datafication of human’s lives can creep people out. Not every man wants his bank, mobile phone provider or car manufacturer knowing every little detail about his daily habits. These trending technologies can bring great advancements, improvements and efficiencies in our day-to-day life.

The evolutionary leap in digital technology and growing number of users — it is really hard to say what will happen next. After all — tomorrow no one knows.

The above trends are definitely here to stay and play the digital game!!
