4 Upcoming IT Trends Businesses Need to Know About

As we look toward 2020, there are some very interesting IT trends that will affect the way businesses operate. Let’s take a look at 4 of them. 

 

IT Outsourcing

With the continued escalation of cyber-threats, increased big-data mining, and businesses turning toward remote workplaces, the IT landscape has become more complicated than ever. To protect themselves, many organizations will choose to outsource their IT and IT-security to professional services. However, not all businesses need to outsource their entire IT department. A co-managed IT service allows for more flexibility, which may result in an increase in this type of service in the coming year. 

 

AI to Help Decision Making

Artificial intelligence (AI) can be a game-changer for many businesses, and can be used to inform marketing decisions, increase operational efficiencies, manage customer relationships, and more. In fact, 80% of enterprises already have some form of AI in use today. It’s expected that businesses will continue to integrate AI into their production and processes to continue to reap these benefits. 

 

Cyber-Security and Resilience

Many large companies have become storage vessels for vast amounts of sensitive data. These businesses, that act as gateways to other companies or carry out critical infrastructure, have become a target for cyberattacks by cybercriminals. 

With the coming of a 5G network, there are sure to be new security issues to hurdle. The right IT infrastructure must be in place to protect against these threats, and the correct personnel in place if these attacks occur. Cyberattacks can severely damage a business’s reputation, especially if handled poorly. 

 

5G Data Networks

What does this 5th generation of mobile internet connectivity mean for businesses? In addition to extremely fast download and upload speeds, it also means more stable connections. This network was made available in 2019, but was very expensive and limited to large cities and confined areas. The 5G network is expected to really take off in 2020, with greater areas of coverage and more affordable data plans.
