Move over, Metaverse – there’s new tech in town! 2023 is fast approaching, and so are the buzzworthy trends we expect to take off. From AI advances to supercharged security, here are five trends to watch for next year.
Unlike standard computers that use binary digits, quantum computers use qubits, which can represent ‘0’ and ‘1’ simultaneously. and are thus able to process much more complex operations in a fraction of the time.
The business implications of quantum computing are far-reaching, including:
- More sophisticated cybersecurity
- Optimized investment strategies
- Advanced data analysis
If there is one tech sector we can’t stop hearing about lately, it’s Artificial Intelligence.
According to GlobalData, AI is the fastest-growing major technology area in global patent filings, growing an average of 28% annually from Q1 2018 to Q1 2022. This spur of AI innovation has also correlated with a drop in costs AI-driven technology, including smart devices.
The result? Businesses are now embracing AI and machine learning for automation, content creation, bioinformatics, customer service, and more, all in the name of improving brand recall and market share.
You can’t have a tech trends report without mentioning cloud computing! While cloud computing itself isn’t new, ongoing innovation has led to iterations of it that continue breaking barriers to productivity and fiscal strength. One such iteration is known as the distributed cloud.
Essentially, a distributed cloud utilizes both public and private clouds as needed, instead of relying on a singular cloud housed in a data center. In other words, businesses can store, access, and interact with acquired data using a more dynamic and flexible range of alternatives.
This innovative and advanced form of cloud computing, which can help manage and preserve data and intelligence from computer vision, includes Cloud BI, 5G Mobile Edge Cloud, Internet of Things (IoT), and much more.
Cyber attacks cost an average of $2.9 million a minute, eating into business budgets and leaving companies vulnerable, and reinforcing the need for advanced cybersecurity. The rise in sprawled out, hybrid operations and cloud-based systems means more access points for businesses. More access points mean more points of potential vulnerability.
Enter, Cybersecurity Mesh (CSMA).
Cybersecurity mesh eschews the traditional perimeter based security model in favor of interdependent tools. As Gartner puts it, “Rather than every security tool running in a silo, a cybersecurity mesh enables tools to interoperate through several supportive layers, such as consolidated policy management, security intelligence and identity fabric.”
Hyperautomation has been “buzzy” since 2021, but continued innovation is positioning it as a true heavy hitter in 2023.
Hyperautomation aims to augment human roles within businesses across industries while automating a variety of people-centric operations. It refers to the intricacy of the automation itself and a wide range of tools, such as a dashboard tool. Some are worried this technology will “replace” humans, but in reality, it’s an advanced type of business intelligence (BI) for the modern day.
