WHERE WILL ALL THE ENERGY COME FROM FOR ALL THE NEW DISRUPTIVE TECHNOLOGIES ? (10 EXAMPLES TO START WITH)
(1) The rise of 5G, AI and edge computing are all rapidly changing how people consume technology and how we approach data and IT operations. No doubt the pandemic has accelerated the pace of innovation as these disruptive technologies change how companies do business and manage customers.
(2) With the pandemic catapulting virtual desktops to the forefront, the domino effect has companies moving everything to the cloud, whether public, private or a hybrid. As the remote workforce is here to stay, and supply chain shortages continue on, cloud computing will further enhance scalability, business continuity and cost efficiency into the future.
(3) Extended Detection and Response (XDR) is a SaaS (software as a service) based security detection and incident response tool that combines multiple security products into one security operations system. Its purpose is to allow enterprises go beyond typical security solutions to get a cohesive view of threats across an entire technology environment.
(4) Edge computing is on the rise as data continuously becomes the center of all modern business. Edge computing is a distributed IT architecture where client data is processed at the edge of the network, but as close to the original source as possible.
(5) Artificial Intelligence continues to evolve and play into many of the IT trends emerging in 2022. Companies that apply AI with a software-as-a-service model, as well as companies with data and feedback loops than enable AI, are seeing the biggest demands in today’s M&A environment.
(6) As a standalone offering, disaster recovery includes on-demand recovery, tests, exercises and declarations; server image and production data replication to the cloud; automated failover and failback between production and the cloud environment; and recovery time service-level agreements.
(7) Robotic process automation implementation is outpacing RPA software market growth, with predictions that it will eliminate paperwork altogether with the ever-evolving intelligent bots. These bots are extracting, filing and processing data online, oftentimes quicker than humans can. The bots can also ensure higher productivity for mundane paperwork-related processes.
(8)Low-code allows organizations to build customized applications with little to no coding efforts. Across many industries low-code technologies, with built-in best practices, offer customizable and configurable solutions just like SaaS solutions.
(9) Decision intelligence combines artificial intelligence and machine learning with human decision making. This helps businesses make accurate and well-thought, pointed decisions quicker. Evolving technologies like decision intelligence brings together data and social sciences to make better decision making for business operations. Decision intelligence is a unifier that brings together complex systems that work as one.
(10) Everything-as-a-Service was born out of Software-as-a-Service which has expanded more services, such as Infrastructure-as-a-Service and Platform-as-a-Service. These cloud-ready services will be beneficial when new and evolving applications come to market.The XaaS market has grown over the last few years and is expected to grow to a $345 billion market, according to a Global Everything-as-a-service (XaaS) Market Research Report
