The Future of IT – 5 Trends in Tech that will shape the Next Decade

When we were hit by the pandemic back in 2020, the world has gone through one of its biggest disruptions and we have been forced to adapt our very way of life. This has only further driven the inevitable move towards digitization at an unprecedented pace.

Studies show that responses to Covid-19 have brought forward the adoption of digital technologies by several years. This is especially true in developed Asian cities where technology adoption is 10 years ahead of what was previously predicted based on surveys and studies.

Businesses ranging across various factors are more likely than ever to say that their main customer interaction happens online. This can be observed in everyday life by the rise of online shopping and e-hailing services as opposed to shopping in physical stores or simply waiting for cabs. Whether we choose to accept it or not, the future of IT is here, and it is here to stay.

Read on to find out 5 trends in tech that will shape the next decade.

Big Data

To put simply, big data is a set of data of greater variety, complexity and sources that can be extracted and analyzed through the use of systems. The shift online has led to massive data dumping and created a huge data pool. With the help of AI systems, organizations can now extract and segregate this data but there is still room for optimization through data storytelling. Once the information has been extracted, it is then the  job of the data expert  to break it down and create a narrative that allows for the data to be easily used.

Cloud computing

Cloud computing is the use of the internet for storing and managing data on remote servers and accessing said data over the internet as well. With the ever expanding need for storage, cloud based services will continue to rise as well as the demand for cloud computing professionals.

Cybersecurity

With seemingly everything moving online, and the increase of cyber security threats, there is a growing need to keep the cyberspace secure from both external and internal threats. As we keep moving forward in digitization, cybersecurity is predicted to be one of the biggest growing areas and experts in this line can expect to receive a handsome sum.

Digital Platforms

The growth of digital platforms such as Facebook and Instagram cannot be denied. This will only continue in an upwards incline. With newer digital platforms emerging, large platforms will be faced with the pressure to keep upgrading and evolving to anticipate the shift in consumer behaviour. It is not a stretch to say that digital platforms can even play a role in creating  user trends.

Robots

Though we probably aren’t at the age of Ultron just yet, this could very much be our near future. Robots and AI technology have grown so exponentially and  the advancements made in these last few years alone have pushed AI technology far beyond what was ever deemed possible. A time when robots are sentient enough to comprehend emotions is near.

Continuous oversight in the cloud

Cloud computing services are increasingly mediating the connections. In this environment, information assurance professionals must not only address longstanding information security threats and vulnerabilities, but they also face new challenges relative to their experience in the field just a few years—or even months—before.

This white paper advocates for continuous oversight of the wide variety of cloud services used by organizations—a set of distinct, but related, management and assurance practices that address critical emerging risk domains, including security, privacy and compliance.

Continuous oversight includes:

  • Continuous assurance for data and processes
  • Continuous cloud assurance
  • Continuous supply chain management and oversight
  • Continuous improvement (CI)

Overview of Amazon Web Services

AWS provides building blocks that you can assemble quickly to support virtually any workload. With AWS, you’ll find a complete set of highly available services that are designed to work together to build sophisticated scalable applications. You have access to highly durable storage, low-cost compute, high-performance databases, management tools, and more. All this is available without up-front cost, and you pay for only what you use. These services help organizations move faster, lower IT costs, and scale. AWS is trusted by the largest enterprises and the hottest start-ups to power a wide variety of workloads, including web and mobile applications, game development, data processing and warehousing, storage, archive, and many others.

Each type of cloud service and deployment method provides you with different levels of control, flexibility and management. Understanding differences between the models can help you find out the right services for your needs.

Cloud Computing Models:

  • Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
  • Platform as a Service (PaaS)
  • Software as a Service (SaaS)

Cloud Computing Deployment Models:

  • Cloud
  • Hybrid
  • On-premises

Cloud Computing and IT Operations

Cloud computing occupies a unique spot in IT history. Existing systems were migrated to cloud providers, and companies found benefits in cost and flexibility while working through issues around security and integration. Today, though cloud offers a path for business transformation. Powerful new capabilities and complex automation can completely change the entire organization. As such, cloud computing bridges two eras of enterprise technology, moving IT from a heavily tactical function to a valuable strategic asset.

Microsoft System Center Network Virtualization and Cloud Computing

As businesses move more toward cloud computing, one important factor for success is adopting multi-tenant software-defined networking (SDN) solutions in data centers. Hyper-V Network Virtualization (HNV) is a key enabler for a multi-tenant SDN solution and is essential for implementing a hybrid cloud environment where tenants can bring not only their own IPs, but their entire network topology since the virtualized networks are abstracted from the underlying fabric network. Network virtualization in general and Hyper-V Network Virtualization in particular are relatively new concepts. Unlike server virtualization, which is a mature, widely-understood technology, network virtualization still lacks this kind of broad familiarity.

This brief book identifies some key usage and deployment scenarios for cloud computing to provide some deep technical background on the Microsoft SDN solution, enabling IT professionals to quickly learn the internals of HNV, how it works from end to end, and where and how it should be used.
