2022 was certainly a challenging year. But challenge is often the factor of development. Which is exactly what is happening in tech.
What trends have been ruling the tech world this year, and how have they changed the industry?
AI and ML
The AI market is expected to grow to $190 billion by 2025. Right now, many businesses are putting a lot of effort into developing and providing AI solutions to their customers and clients.
One of the 2022 AI trends is the development of machine vision — a technology used to provide image-based automatic inspection and analysis. Now, computers can recognize objects in images and videos which can be useful for the medical field, insurance, warfare, and other fields.
Wide use of AI is changing the way multiple industries operate, and it changes the things technology is capable of. When it comes to AI, we have barely scratched the surface, so this technology is here to stay and make our lives easier and better.
What is quantum computing?
Quantum computing utilizes the principles of quantum theory. Quantum computers can process information much faster than the devices we have today and are sure to be more efficient.
Proper quantum computers are still far away into the future, we are definitely getting closer to them. A little more than a month ago, IBM held IBM Quantum Challenge Fall 2022 — a series of exercises meant to help tech professionals around the world develop skills needed to potentially work with quantum computers in the future.
While quantum computers remain a concept more than reality, it is already influencing a modern tech world. Tech pros are getting ready to work with the technology, which, of course, affects the tech scene as a whole.
How does sustainability correlate with tech? For one, businesses start paying attention to it. Their workers, candidates, and customers start caring about corporate eco-initiatives.
Second, they start looking for better solutions. Big IT companies leave a huge carbon imprint — 3.7% of all global emissions are produced as a result of online activity. This number is expected to double in 3 years. The way tech businesses operate will change, and they will start looking for more sustainability. That is why every tech pro should start thinking about sustainability and eco-initiatives today.
Low- and no-code platforms
Zero-coding is the latest trend in the world of development. With 82% of businesses failing to attract and retain seasoned tech professionals, no- and low-coding might be the best options for them to keep on developing their product.
What are the main pros and cons of zero-coding?
|Doesn’t require deep knowledge of the development process
|Users can’t build complex systems with its help
|Increased professionals’ productivity and agility
|Security is questionable
|The flexibility of the solution is limited
|It is easy to understand
|It leads to vendor lock-in
Will zero-coding become the next big thing in the world of development? It might, but this doesn't mean professionals coding in other languages will become obsolete.
WFH provides tech professionals with several perks:
- A better work-life balance
- More time for education and self-development
- The ability to plan their work day according to their preferences and personal schedule
- The ability to focus on important tasks in a quiet and calm environment
WFH mode is here to stay. And it is definitely one of the trends that is shaping the future of the tech industry.
Cybersecurity has been in the spotlight since the first virus was launched into the users’ systems. In the third quarter of 2022, the number of cyberattacks has grown by 28%. With an increasing number of threats, the cybersecurity market is expected to grow to $433.6 billion by 2030.
Here are some buzzwords that were dominating the cybersecurity industry in 2022:
- Spear phishing — a type of cyberattack that targets users who have access to corporate networks and trick them into giving up their personal data.
- Shadow IT — used to describe the use of a company’s resources and internal systems outside their purpose. It usually describes employees using their personal devices to access company documents or information without authorization.
- Zero Trust Network — a network that doesn’t allow any devices to connect to itself before they go through a proper verification.
- Container Security — the practice of monitoring and protecting the contents of a virtual machine holding users’ application settings and configuration files, otherwise known as a container.
- Email spoofing — a type of virus that sends out emails that pretend to be from a legit and safe sender. Used to trick people into clicking malicious links, opening virus-carrying attachments, or visiting harmful websites.
Just like in 2022, cybersecurity specialists and personnel will be among the most popular hires for the tech companies.
