The beginning of 2022 reveals what will be the main technological trends for this year.
The same thing had already been done for 2021, but 2022 will rely on interventional technologies at the business level, with digital innovation, in order to improve the company’s performance, regardless of place, and the world, in general, as it has comprehensive technologies and, inevitably, technologies that comprise the health field.
We then highlight the main technological trends that will mark 2022, based on several internationally recognized sites:
Computing Allied to Privacy
Cybersecurity is and will continue to be one of the factors of greatest investment in organizations and institutions, mainly because 2021 was a year marked by several security flaws, which culminated in several virtual attacks on companies. This was essentially due to the change in the way of working, which became remote, or hybrid, not having the necessary security for these molds. It had already been considered a trend in 2021, which not only happened, but extends to 2022. Computing that improves privacy ensures the processing of personal data in untrusted environments, which is increasingly critical due to the evolution of laws privacy and data protection, as well as growing consumer concerns.
Enhanced Security Standards
It is increasingly important to guarantee safe conditions, mainly because of the new working environments. In view of this, companies need to equip their employees with the most secure technologies, which have all the necessary security features. Furthermore, rapid digital acceleration inevitably increases exposure to new viruses. This increase in security also occurs in the Supply Chain, given that this technology has seen an increase in fraud, since, with the pandemic situation gone through, the physical checking of stocks was put aside.
This has gained increasing relevance, since it is seen as a strategy to facilitate the performance and reliability of AI models, while at the same time seeking to offer value to the investments made in this area. Likewise, it allows eliminating the work considered repetitive and reducing the margin for error, improving the customer experience, and also modernizing the business, making them, consequently, more efficient. However, 2022 brings to the fore the ethical issue that accompanies this engineering, since several technologies were accused of lack of human and behavioral ethics.
Again, a concept that is not new, and it is increasingly inevitable. The growing need for digitalization, this one leveraged by the pandemic, has been recognized for its advantages both in terms of efficiency and productivity. For 2022, Gartner again forecasts a trend toward hyper-automation that will allow for better business performance and significant growth. To this end, teams must focus on three main aspects: improving the quality of work, accelerating business processes, and prioritizing agility.
Integrated Data Networks
Integrated data networks provide flexible and resilient integration of data sources, making them available wherever you need them, no matter where the data “dies”. Furthermore, integrated data networks can recommend when to use or change. This data sharing was facilitated since a set of new technologies simplified the mechanics of data sharing between organizations, preserving privacy. In fact, organizations are unlocking more value from their own sensitive data by leveraging huge volumes of external data that are normally off limits. The ability to share secure data is spawning new business models and products. For example, by gathering clinical data on shared platforms in the early days of the pandemic, researchers, medical authorities and drug manufacturers were able to accelerate the development of treatments and vaccines.
Authentication without Password
Zero Trust Security
The main thought that you should always keep in mind is to use technology as the main strategic partner to invest in your organization, while accelerating the entity’s results.
