In 2020, there is no doubt that the Covid-19 pandemic has disturbed the worldwide economy as well as the movement of technology advances and new product improvement in different businesses. Regardless of these postponements, there have been various new advancements, driving technology trends across various technologies, including artificial intelligence, 5G, internet of things (IoT), extended reality (XR), and automotive safety.

As the end of this lockdown year nears, we take a look at the noteworthy work that market-leading industry investigators have done and take a glance at the technology trends that we should watch in 2021.

Emerging technologies as well as other existing advances have driven the manner in which organizations have taken to progress and execute their digital transformation consistently. The ones that follow are some of the trends that will shape the manner in which we work and live one year from now and in the future.

5G Will Go Mainstream

All that discussion and publicity around 5G will turn out to be real in 2021. The requirement for a reliable and fast connection became earnest a couple of months earlier. At the point when digital collaboration, telecommunication and videoconferencing turned into a part of our lives, we needed to get approaches to boost speed.
It was at that point clear enough for telecommunication companies that 5G was the best approach. The arrangement of this innovation will be significant for various tools like IoT. About 51% of organizations utilizing IoT have noticed an improved insight into customer needs, practices, and inclinations. The value of 5G, in this way, will soar in 2021.

Growing Demand for Ethical AI

Previously, firms that received AI and other machine learning advancements paid little notice to their ethical impact. Today, notwithstanding, values-based purchasers and employees anticipate that organizations should embrace AI in a responsible fashion.

Throughout the next years, firms will intentionally decide to work with partners that focus on data ethics and implement data handling practices that mirror their own values as well as their customers’ values.

Integration of AR Glasses

TrendForce conjectures augment reality (AR) glasses will move towards a smartphone connected design in 2021 with the smartphone filling in as the computing platform for the glasses. The move additionally will empower a huge decrease in cost and weight for the AR glasses, said TrendForce. Furthermore, as the 5G network environment turns out to be more developed in 2021, the reconciliation of 5G smartphones and AR glasses will empower the latter to run AR applications all the more easily and deliver advanced personal audio-visual entertainment functionalities by utilizing the additional computing power of smartphones. The outcome: smartphone brands and mobile network operators will move into the AR glasses market on a large-scale in 2021.

Reevaluation of Automation Roadmaps

Coronavirus is changing firms’ automation plans quickly toward back-office processes and business strength. Intelligent automation will represent the infusion of robotic and digital process automation with pragmatic AI and low-code tools.

These advancements will assist organizations with getting more proficient and tough while extending their operations.

Customer Data Platforms (CDP)

Over the recent times, we have seen an ascent in customer data platforms (CDP). It is difficult to put together fragmented data from numerous sources. To work effectively, you’ll need well-curated and convenient operations.

In an ongoing report, an expected $3 trillion goes down the channel every year because of terrible data. Hence, it’s very basic that you address this issue right on time as an organization. Fortunately, CDPs help to take care of this issue by gathering data from all sources. They then organize it, tag it, and make it usable.

Driver Monitoring Systems (DMS)

Automotive safety technology is moving from applications outside the vehicle to in-vehicle, and sensing innovation is presently incorporating driver status monitoring with external environmental readings. Simultaneously, automotive AI integration is turning into an empowering agent of automotive safety, extending beyond entertainment and user assistance functions.

Later on, the essential utilization of driver monitoring functions will be centered around the advancement of more dynamic, solid, and accurate camera systems. This implies DMS will be essential in the improvement of autonomous driving systems (ADS) since DMS serves various functions at the same time, including real-time detection/notification, driver capability assessment, and takeover of driving controls when necessary.

Cloud-native Technologies

Rising cloud-local advancements that are born from open source and incubated in public clouds have driven quick development and that too in a larger number of areas than just the public cloud.

From 2021 and throughout the next five years, cloud-native technologies, for example, serverless computing and container platforms will proclaim another period of distributed enterprise software – from cloud suppliers, edge suppliers, and software vendors alike.

Cybersecurity Mesh

With the cybersecurity mesh, you can get to any digital security asset – regardless of its location. The advantage of this technology is that it permits individuals to put the security divider around people instead of the whole organization.

The abrupt ascent in remote workforces and cloud technology has influenced the security of company assets outside the organization’s edge. Because of the assistance of the cybersecurity mesh, the security border goes beyond and covers people working remotely.

Hyperlocal Business Operations

In the following decade, large enterprises will improve their capacity to work hyperlocally, with provincial fair size organizations developing and growing to new topographies. Companies should plan structures that can strategically distribute customer engagement and business tasks frameworks to significant geographic locales while holding centralized technology management benefits. Zero Trust security will assist customers in exploring this move.

Quantum Computing

Quantum computing has helped in the administration of COVID-19 regarding dealing with the spread, searching for potential vaccines, and the advancement of therapeutics. As individuals keep on understanding the power of quantum computing, we are bound to observe its application in numerous ventures in 2021 and beyond.

We at AppleTech are bracing ourselves for these trends and are well prepared to meet the challenges and exciting opportunities that these technologies and trend will bring with them. For all your software development needs, please reach out to us.
