Below Are The Top 5 Technology Trends For 2023, According To A Report By Bearingpoint.
- Generative AI
- Cloud-native platform
- Embedded data and analytics
- Zero trust at scale
Generative AI: Using new data to speed up innovation
Any artificial intelligence that uses unsupervised learning methods to produce new digital things including images, video, audio, text, and code is referred to as generative AI. A generative AI model’s goal is to produce artificial data, which forces the model to draw conclusions about the most crucial training data.
While deep fakes and data journalism are two areas where generative AI is frequently employed, the technology also plays a significant role in automating the tedious tasks involved in digital picture and audio correction. Additionally, generative AI is being utilised experimentally in business to enhance data augmentation for robotic process automation as well as in manufacturing as a tool for rapid prototyping (RPA).
Metaverse – Merging Digital and Real
The metaverse, a network of 3D virtual worlds with VR and AR headsets promoting social connections, blurs the barriers between the physical and digital worlds, between the actual and virtual realities. The metaverse is a persistent, dynamic digital world that gives users a sense of control, social presence, shared spatial awareness, and access to a sizable virtual economy with significant societal implications.
The metaverse also promises to reduce carbon emissions, whether through the replacement of actual goods and meetings with digital ones, the substitution of in-person interactions with virtual ones, or the creation of digital twins that will aid in the improvement of the real world.
Cloud native platform: New approaches to product development
Development teams are now embracing cloud frameworks and platforms to create new applications since the majority of public and private businesses have migrated legacy information systems to the cloud using the 6R approach (rehost, replatform, repurchase, rearchitecting, retire, and retain). This new approach to developing products is driven by traditional cloud promises such as accelerated product development cycles, scalable managed services, innovative cloud features (serverless, machine learning, advanced analytics), and evergreen, resilient and hyper-automated technologies. This revolution in app development presents difficulties in managing change, vendors, and costs, and it has a significant impact on how IT firms handle personnel and culture.
Embedded data and analytics – Companies get lost without prioritized use cases
Businesses that are successful have a holistic strategy and continually integrate data and analytics into their operations. They keep an eye on new trends and adjust accordingly but always move along a roadmap with initiatives and use cases that drive them toward their goals. Businesses must establish and select meaningful use cases and insights while implementing a comprehensive strategy. Data analysis won’t be successful without a plan and use cases like these.
Zero trust at scale – Cybersecurity at the core of IS architecture
Companies operate increasingly in complex business ecosystems requiring connections to IT assets from a diversity of users from various organisations connecting from anywhere and from any device. It all happens in a cyber threat explosion context, urging the promotion of zero trust as a core architecture principle. CISOs (Chief Information Security Officers) have to implement, at scale, a comprehensive, dynamic and granular set of identity and access control solutions.
