Top 5 IT Trends in 2020

Technology is changing so quickly that it can feel impossible for small businesses to stay on top of it all. Luckily, we’ve compiled a quick breakdown of the top 5 trends for IT in 2020.

Let’s take a look:

 

#1: AI Security

Analyzing threats and risks has always required a certain human touch, but with the latest advancements in AI and machine learning, corporations and individuals can now stay protected from the fastest and most dangerous threats.

Because hackers and thieves are now using machine learning to steal crucial data, industries at risk of theft need a security suite that not only protects from instant attacks, but also learns from them at a much faster rate than humans can.

 

#2: 5G Data Networks

Computers and data networks are getting faster every year, but data transmission is going to become 100 times faster with the launch of brand-new 5G networks.

These networks are expected to have a data air latency speed of 1-4 milliseconds and are already getting their speeds as low as 8 milliseconds, which means that users will be able to work and communicate in the blink of an eye.

 

#3: Edge Computing

Edge Computing is a revolutionary idea evolving from the Internet of Things and seeks to make data analysis and operations faster.

Rather than sending data to the cloud, having it analyzed, and then brought back, edge computing seeks to use the computing power of modern devices and have data analysis done on-site, saving time and money.

 

#4: Democratisation

Technology has always been the domain of trained and talented professionals, but software producers and tech giants are working hard to make sure anyone can access and customize their systems with ease.

By making technology accessible enough for citizens to interact with and understand, businesses can develop in-house data analysis teams without costly training and procurement.

 

#5: Expansion of APIs

APIs or Application Program Interface are the secret tools that allow your business operations to instantly interact with others, but tech giants are starting to experiment with the full capabilities of these automatic interfaces.

More than 90% of businesses that utilize APIs say their businesses are seeing major results, so be sure to stay on top of your competition by integrating APIs into your practices.
