With the wave of corona, the technological landscape has changed radically. People and their needs form the base of any change in the world. These required variations are the driving force to develop any new technology.
Seldom Our past has seen such circumstances which have shaken the world to the extent which 2020 has done. So, the top ten technologies that have survived in this situation and have met our requirements are:
1. Artificial Intelligence:
AI is top on the list. Artificial intelligence is about the application of programmed algorithms that automates the processes done by human resources. It’s an emerging technology, and its implementation enables and increases the performance and reliability of the tasks performed while delivering the complete return on investments. Some of its applications are medical diagnosis, search engines, online assistants, Image recognition, which benefits the human race in significant areas.
5G is the term used for 5th generation mobile network after 4G. It aims at connections between the features globally. They may be devices, networks, and machines. It has its part in emerging business and personal applications. It is more in demand since last year as it provides improved remote working competences, video conferencing for businesses. It makes intelligent cities connected via high device networks.
3. Virtual reality/Augmented reality
Virtual reality and Augmented reality both are powerful, promising technologies. But both of them accomplish two different things in two very different ways. The designs of the devices that use these technologies are very similar. Virtual reality swaps real thing with the computer-generated world taking you altogether somewhere else whereas Augmented reality adds to the information which is already visible, making the view wider. When used in their respective areas, they completely change the world around us.
4. Block chain
Blockchain aligns with Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT). With its help history of any digital asset can be made permanent; that is, the records cannot be changed. This makes data transparent throughout its use. This is done by the technique of decentralization and cryptographic hashing.
The term IoT stands for the Internet of Things. As the name itself indicates, it encompasses everything connected to the internet. It is also being used to define objects that can communicate with each other. So, we can say that the Internet of Things is made up of devices that can be from simple sensors to smartphones and wearables – all connected.
6. Big Data Analytics
Big Data Analytics is continuously replacing traditional ways of data storage and processing. New trends are uncovered by data analytics. These trends are being used to find solutions to challenges, including climate change, disease prevention and wildlife protection.
Big Data gets the trends that help in Decision Intelligence. Framework provided by these trends help data engineers design, model, execute, and monitor decision models and processes used in deciding business strategies. Data gathered says that by 2023, more than 34% of large organizations will utilize decision intelligence, i.e. business data analysts, to make their business decisions.
7. Robotic process automation
We can partially or fully automate human tasks that are manual and repetitive. This can be done through Robotic process automation (RPA), which is a software tool. RPA work as an actual human interacting with one or more software applications. These software tools are used to perform data entry tasks, process standard transactions, or respond to simple customer service queries.
Automation of processes sets humans free from tedious, monotonous tasks like data entry and makes them available for higher-value tasks that require human creativity, cleverness, and decision making. It helps to ensure that lessons can be completed on time because the robotic process automation tool can find and retrieve any necessary data in the background
8. Cyber Security
Cybersecurity applies to protecting systems connected to the internet from threats in cyberspace done by cybercriminals. It takes into account the protection of software, data, and hardware. It helps in preventing hackers from gaining access to devices or networks.
Organizations need cybersecurity to keep their data, finances, and intellectual property safe. Individuals need it to prevent the loss of essential files, such as family photos and documents.
The word DevOps is the combination of the term’s development and operations. The Combination represents an approach to the tasks collectively performed by both company’s application development and IT operations teams. DevOps promotes better communication and collaboration between development and IT teams in an organization. It is used to shorten the period of software developments and provide continuous delivery with high software quality.
10. Content Management System (CMS)
A content management system is a software application applied mainly to four major areas: content optimization, management, system HTML, and website. This software helps users develop, supervise, and improve the content on the web page without any specialized technical knowledge.
