New Trends in IT To Know for 2022

Data Fabric (fluid data management)

Data is at the core of every business today. As organisations collect data from various devices and platforms at an increasing rate, there is a need for instant and easy access to this data – enter data fabric. Simply put, data fabric is an approach used to simplify access to data. Making it easier to provide the right data at the right time, regardless of where it may be in the cloud.

Cybersecurity Mesh

COVID-19 has caused an increasing demand in technology and rapid evolution to keep up with the changes in work-life. Whilst there have been positives to this, it has equally increased cybersecurity threats with company assets outside of the traditional security parameter with the new remote and hybrid working models in place. This is where the cybersecurity mesh serves its purpose by providing standalone security solutions that can be managed from a central hub, making it aptly suited for the ‘work from anywhere’ model. What does this mean for business? Well, you’ll be able to access devices, data, and applications securely from anywhere without the worry of a cybersecurity threat.

You’ll no doubt be familiar with the term automation. Well, hyperautomation takes this concept of automating everything within an organisation to another level using Artificial Intelligence (AI) and robotic processes. So, instead of automating smaller individual tasks, hyperautomation uses multiple tools to enable intelligent automation at a much larger scale.

According to Gartner, hyperautomation is one of the top strategic trends to look out for in 2022.

Data Privacy

As daily life becomes more and more digitised with the current trends in information technology, there is a growing need to protect personal data. We all, however, hear stories about individuals who lose money or control of their identity because of scammers, criminals, and the plethora of bad actors. A critical part of protecting yourself is to be careful where you leave your personal information.

Top-Down integration (CRM, customer experience, UI, team software)

As the name suggests, this is when testing of software modules takes place from top to bottom, with the higher levels tested first.

Custom Network Solutions

Not all businesses are the same. That’s why it’s crucial to have a tailored approach to the IT network. Having custom network solutions lead to enhanced workflow and more effective and efficient collaborations and communication amongst employees. Something that is a growing need as we evolve into remote and hybrid working models.

Drone inspections

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from the pandemic it’s that people don’t necessarily need to be on-site to get the job done. Drone-based inspections allow just that. They are a valuable industrial inspection tool, allowing companies to improve efficiency, safety and quality. Since they are small and inexpensive to operate, you can benefit from more inspections and not have to worry about the safety of on-site personnel.
