If there is one thing that 2020 has taught us, it is the importance of Technology. Technology has become a pillar for organizations to perform their day-to-day activities, and organizations that do not make use of the tech available to them have the possibility of being left behind.
While a lot of the current trends came about as more of a necessity than a choice, the good news is that they have now become business opportunities for organizations. Here are the Tech Trends that we envision for 2021:
With the rise of the WFH model, organizations have realized the many benefits it offers. The WFH model is especially advantageous in providing flexibility and lowering costs, with no fall in employee efficiency.
Hiring on a WFH basis can also give employers access to a talent pool from all over the world. If they have not already, most companies worldwide will be shifting to a ‘Digital Workplace’ and endeavor to have a mix of Remote and Onsite staff.
According to International Data Corporation, the worldwide spending on Digital Transformation is set to grow 10.4% annually to $1.3 trillion in 2021. Demand for Digital transformation services in the fields of Robotic Process Automation (RPA), Machine Learning (ML), and Artificial Intelligence (AI) will only keep increasing. Automation will take over performing menial tasks, leaving human beings to focus on core decision making and jobs that require critical thinking.
2021 will also be a year of higher demand for Internet of Things (IoT) services and Automated Sensor based solutions across the globe.
2020 saw a rapid increase in cybercrimes and ransomware attacks worldwide, impacting both SME’s and Large Corporations. A prime example of this is the recent SolarWinds cyberattack that took the world by storm. In 2021, CIOs should focus more on ramping up their Security, as well as educating their employees on prevention of Cyberattacks. Organizations should also have consistent IT Audits to reduce the chances of attacks as much as possible.
The need for investment in Cloud has grown in 2020 and will continue to grow in 2021. It is important to utilize Cloud Services for Data Backups, which is proving to be especially beneficial in managing data losses due to increase in cybercrimes over the past year. Cloud technologies are also highly beneficial for fostering a WFH model, especially when it comes to collaboration among the team.
While 2020 was all about chartering through unforeseen territory, 2021 will be the year to capitalize on the opportunities that have come up with ‘the new normal’. Technology in 2021 will be a catalyst for innovations and business development.
