We all have expectations for the year ahead. We make plans and hope for the best. But let’s not forget about the past, because as Albert Einstein once said: “Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning.”
Today, we want to recall things that happened in the IT industry to see what we can take into the new year.
In the tech world, cybersecurity has already established a solid foundation.
Unfortunately, security breaches are quite common. An AI-enabled phishing attack or a network intrusion are two of the most common cyberattacks facing enterprises, with potentially severe consequences like data breach or revenue loss. So, it is natural that companies want to invest in a security system that will protect them from such attacks.
In order to keep your data safe, Cybersecurity Month has been created. Every year during October cybersecurity specialists share information and give advice on how to keep you and your data safe and sound.
The same event was held in October this year where the topics covered security in social media and privacy measures.
Sustainable Energy Solutions
It was predicted that 2022 would be a year of efficient use of energy. And the present and events that have happened this year showed us that energy preservation is an absolutely mandatory step that we have to take.
Quite a lot of technologies and apps were created to help us save energy more efficiently and conveniently. As an example take the mobile apps that allow you to connect to the appliances in your house and manage them remotely. You can optimize your appliances and regulate energy consumption from your phone. Adopting smart technology is a practical way to save energy in your home.
The convergence of cloud computing, networks, and devices
Cloud computing is rapidly evolving towards a cloud-based computing system in which cloud, network and devices are converged with a clear division of work due to rapid network technology development. It accelerates the development of more sophisticated applications such as highly precise industry simulations, real-time quality checks, and mixed reality. A flood of use cases is already expected to run on this upgraded computer system over the next two years.
Robotic Process Automation (RPA)
Numerous organizational functions are automated by RPA in several business sectors. In the same way that Artificial Intelligence (AI) can be viewed as a threat to jobs, Robotic Process Automation (RPA) relies on specialized software programs to automate processes. However, global revenues from the RPA market are expected to reach over $10 billion by 2023. This provides a strong foundation for knowledge workers in career opportunities such as RPA analysts, developers, and programmers, to name a few.
These were the most expected trends in IT for this year. In everything and everywhere, we can see that the world strives for automation and convenience. It is this desire that drives our progress forward, and thus creates even more innovations to improve our lives.
