It is a well-known fact that every year or so, computers double their capabilities with the information technologies surrounding them following the same trend. This rapid increase in the technological advancement indicates that this growth is exponential in nature. Most of the latest technology predictions related to the software industry are based on this exponential growth.
Sometimes we fail to get enough time to understand how this growth is changing the world around us. The rate at which we are progressing, it won't be long before the next revolutionary technology development will be in front of us sooner than we expected. It is important to be updated with the latest trends and happenings in the software industry to be able to develop innovative and futuristic products incorporated with the latest technologies. In this article, we have listed the latest software technology predictions for 2018 and beyond, which can help you stay updated with the trends that will make the most noise in this year.
Today, a digital stethoscope can store heart and respiratory sounds of the human body. Tomorrow, it might be able to store large amounts of such data, transmit it, or even analyze it to provide real-time updates to the doctor. That is how fast our technology is moving forward these days. Here are some of the technology forecasts for 2018 that may interest you as a software enthusiast -
Machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) will encompass even more advanced systems around us. These systems will be able to understand, learn, adapt, predict, and work autonomously. A good combination of advanced algorithms, extensive parallel processing power, and massive data sets will bring in massive technological developments in 2018.
More and more intelligent apps will be developed and used in the coming years. The areas such as robots, autonomous vehicles, and drones will flourish and have a huge impact on the larger segment of the market in 2018. Existing IoT devices will deliver the power of AI enabled systems everywhere including office, home, medical facility, factories, etc.
Virtual and augmented reality has already started making an impact in the market with different kinds of devices available today. In the coming year, AR and VR will gain a tremendous ground in different fields of entertainment and adventure activities. Companies would need to target more applications which use VR and AR technologies to stay relevant.
With the advent of digital technology platforms and intelligent digital mesh, the security needs to be more adaptive and fluid. Providing great security in the IoT environment will prove to be even more challenging this year. Security teams would have to work with application, enterprise, and solution architects to plan the architecture early in the design phase. Multilayered security will be the key in 2018 and the coming years.
2018 will see the increase in number of conversational systems. Conversational systems can range from simple to complex bi-directional voice or text conversations. At present, human beings adapt to a computer while using conversational systems, this model will witness a gradual shift in the coming years, and will be replaced by a model wherein the computer listens to the human beings and adapts to their requirements.
More and more intelligent apps will come into play using technologies like virtual personal assistants and have the potential to make processes simpler. Right from security tooling to enterprise application, every software application will be AI enabled in the years to come.
Most of the organizations will have a good mix of digital technology platforms such as business ecosystems, information systems, analytics and intelligence, customer experience, and Internet of Things (IoT) in 2018. Companies need to identify the right digital platforms and see how they can evolve and plan ways to meet the challenges of digital business.
