Every year, Gartner releases top 10 IT trends for next year. It makes people realize that it's almost end of that year. Gartner also released 2019 Strategic Technology trends for 2019 on October 2018. The list includes Autonomous things, Blockchain, Smart Space, and so on.

 

 

1. Autonomous Things

You can see many articles about autonomous vehicles recently. Autonomous things such as robots, drones, and autonomous vehicles will use AI to automate functions previously performed by humans. The sophistication of the intelligence varies, but all autonomous things use AI to interact more naturally with their environments.

 

2. Augmented analytics

 

Augmented analytics represents a third major wave for data and analytics capabilities as data scientists use automated algorithms to explore more hypotheses. Data science and machine learning platforms have transformed how businesses generate analytics insight.

3. AI-driven development
The market will shift from a focus on data scientists partnered with developers to developers operating independently using predefined models delivered as a service. This enables more developers to utilize the services and increases efficiency. 

 

4. Digital twins
A digital twin is a digital representation that mirrors a real-life object, process or system. The focus today is on digital twins in the IoT, which could improve enterprise decision making by providing information on maintenance and reliability, insight into how a product could perform more effectively, data about new products and increased efficiency.

 

5. Empowered edge
Edge computing is a topology where information processing and content collection and delivery are placed closer to the sources of the information, with the idea that keeping traffic local will reduce latency. 

 

6. Immersive technologies
Through 2028, conversational platforms, which change how users interact with the world, and technologies such as augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (MR) and virtual reality (VR), which change how users perceive the world, will lead to a new immersive experience. 

 

7. Blockchain

Blockchain will continue on 2019. Blockchain could potentially lower costs, reduce transaction settlement times and improve cash flow. The technology has also given way to a host of blockchain-inspired solutions that utilize some of the benefits and parts of blockchain.

 

8. Smart Spaces
A smart space is a physical or digital environment in which humans and technology-enabled systems interact in increasingly open, connected, coordinated and intelligent ecosystems. As technology becomes a more integrated part of daily life, smart spaces will enter a period of accelerated delivery. Further, other trends such as AI-driven technology, edge computing, blockchain, and digital twins are driving toward this trend as individual solutions become smart spaces.

 

9. Digital ethics and privacy
Consumers have a growing awareness of the value of their personal information, and they are increasingly concerned with how it’s being used by public and private entities.

10. Quantum computing
Quantum computing is a type of nonclassical computing that is based on the quantum state of subatomic particles that represent information as elements denoted as quantum bits or “qubits.”
