Although the COVID-19 pandemic is not over yet and the space for human movement will still be limited, the flow of the latest technological developments cannot be stopped. Trends in the tech industry aren’t always new or foreign. However, some trends will remain relevant for a while as they have changed the world so much. Here are some of the top tech trends in 2022:
Digital transformation means integrating digital technology into all areas of the business changing the way companies operate and adding value to customers to meet changing business and market needs. The term has been around for decades, but its implementation has never been as rapid and massive. Today, more and more companies are following the trend because of the advantages and opportunities that digital transformation offers.
In recent years, multicloud is gaining more and more popularity. In contrast to the basic cloud which only uses one cloud, either private or public cloud in its implementation, the multicloud architecture uses several cloud services from more than one cloud provider. Multiclouds have become the ideal solution for those who want more flexibility and agility in their cloud setup. Data that needs to be accessed quickly and frequently can be stored in a public cloud that offers easy access through tools, applications and dashboards. Meanwhile, more sensitive data or mission critical data can be stored in private clouds which can be monitored and processed using proprietary applications. This level of flexibility makes hybrid clouds even more preferable.
The COVID-19 pandemic has made the world realize that, in many industries, remote work is indeed a viable option, and technology is at the heart of this paradigm shift. Technology has played an important role in creating a safe and productive remote work environment as well as making working from home comfortable for both employers and employees. Companies will realize that the opportunity to work from home or elsewhere can motivate many employees because they can balance their personal life with their work, even better when working from home. Therefore, many of them will consider switching to hybrid or remote work entirely.
Nowadays, gamers no longer need to download and install games. Through the concept of cloud gaming, they can enjoy games on remote servers and stream content directly from their devices. This makes the game more accessible even to players with lower hardware specs. Over the years, cloud gaming has tried to prove itself. Despite the various struggles and challenges, the industry will continue to look for ways to make cloud gaming more attractive.
