This year continues to challenge most businesses. As we enter Q2, lingering issues of recession, inflation, supply chain problems, and talent shortages highlight how digital modernization remains critical to the success of our member organizations. Here are five technology trends to not only help you combat these issues but also propel your company forward on your digital modernization journey.
One of the most important trends I am monitoring is the increasing emphasis on full-stack development. With the rapid pace of technological change, it is increasingly important for companies to maintain a team of developers proficient in a wide range of technologies. This includes both front-end and back-end development.
As organizations continue to digitize their operations and rely more heavily on technology, the risk of cyber-attacks increases. Businesses need to invest in advanced cybersecurity measures to keep their systems and data safe.
DevOps is proving to be another significant trend this year. It will be essential for companies to have a strong DevOps culture in place to ensure that new features and updates are delivered quickly and with high quality.
From chatbots and virtual assistants to autonomous vehicles and drones, Artificial Intelligence and robotics are already having a massive impact on industries like manufacturing, transportation, and healthcare. As these technologies continue to evolve, businesses will need to invest in hiring AI and robotics experts to stay competitive.
Snowflake is a data warehousing platform that allows businesses to store, process, and analyze substantial amounts of data in the cloud. As organizations persist in generating massive quantities of data, Snowflake, or similar platforms, is a technology that is essential in order for companies to grow.
