New Decade, New Horizons: Top 5 Technology Trends for 2020

The last 10 years have seen technological advancements explode into our everyday lives. We now live in a world led by digital. So, as we move into this new decade, we ask: what’s next? 

With capabilities that look to significantly transform the world of business, we take a look at the top 5 tech trends due to drive significant disruption in the coming years.

The key thing for businesses here is hyperautomation oftens relates in the creation of a digital twin of your organisation. From this, you’ll be able to visualise how functions, processes, and key performance indicators interact to drive value. Real time intelligence that leads to business opportunities. 

2. Edge Computing

More and more businesses are adopting Cloud Computing, and it is set to be the biggest technology trend of 2020. Edge Computing has solved one of the issues with cloud, as it can process data that needs time, even in remote locations.

Essentially, it can work with little or no internet services or connectivity. The even more exciting news is the jobs this is going to create for those in the tech industry. Definitely one to keep an eye on. 

3.Blockchain

Blockchain is a type of distributed ledger, an expanding chronologically ordered list of cryptographically signed, irrevocable transactional records shared by all participants in a network. 

Many think this is somehow related to cryptocurrencies, but they couldn’t be more wrong. Blockchain is a form of data can only be added. It has a level of security because one cannot change data and no one can take charge of the data because it is entirely consensus-driven. As the tech evolves with this one, so will the job around it.
