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.

Three Elements For Efficient Cloud Implementation

Successful cloud implementation requires a holistic view of all aspects that will be impacted by the initiative, including people, processes, and technology. Defining and building a complete, effective cloud environment — whether private, public, or hybrid — can transform your business, speed product delivery, and reduce costs.

Cloud solutions have transitioned from emerging technology to critical and strategic infrastructure components. As a result, communications service providers (CSPs) must sort through a proliferation of products and methodologies to make the right choices for their businesses.

Regardless of the type of cloud environment, properly preparing for the shift to cloud operations allows you to do more, faster, and at lower costs. This whitepaper discusses the Red Hat® Consulting methodology for combining people, processes, and technology to deploy an effective, efficient cloud environment and highlights several CSPs that have done so.

While implementation of cloud computation requires meticulous planning, the learning process is incredibly easy. As Red Hat courses are one of the many specialties at Info Trek, the adaptation of this complex technology can be effortless with some help below:

Increase Value and Reduce Total Cost of Ownership and Complexity with Oracle PaaS

The cloud offers the potential for significant savings in terms of both time and cost. Migrating applications and workloads to cloud infrastructure (or Infrastructure-as-a-Service, IaaS) is a good start that enables companies to reduce upfront capital expenditures and investments in physical facilities.

However, longer-term savings and cost reduction depend on more than just substituting on-premises infrastructure with cloud infrastructure. With IaaS, just as with on-premises environments, you still bear ongoing software licensing, maintenance and operations costs.
