Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends for 2023

We have experienced remarkably high volatility over the past three years, including supply chain disruptions, historically high inflation, geopolitical unrest, and, of course, an unprecedented worldwide pandemic and the resulting lockdowns. It has never been more difficult for business leaders and entrepreneurs to navigate this environment. Fortunately, new technological solutions are being developed in concert with these issues to support forward-thinking executives in positioning their firms to succeed in the tumultuous years to come.

Knowing the top tech trends is perhaps the most important step you can take to make sure your company is prepared for near-term success. After all, if you don’t start preparing your business for the newest technological advancements as soon as the year starts, you’ll already be behind. Considering this, let’s examine some of the major technological trends for 2023 as identified by Gartner Research and consider how you may use them to prepare your company for a better, more prosperous future.

Digital Immune System

Risk has received unprecedented attention in both the physical and digital worlds during the last few years. As data breaches and other cybersecurity issues get more sophisticated, concerns about cybersecurity are growing more severe.

Thankfully, techniques for defending against internet crooks, spammers, and other unwelcome online pests are becoming more sophisticated. A strong digital immune system may drastically reduce operational and security threats through monitoring, automation, and the most recent design advancements.

As the utility of these tools becomes more established, expect to hear many more questions about the health of your organization’s digital immune system in the year to come, and what you’re doing to strengthen and protect it.

Application of Observability

There were more tools and techniques for gathering data in the 2010s than anyone knew what to do with. Therefore, it is likely that the next step will be toward developing new uses for the data that has been gathered now that seemingly unlimited quantities of client data are available.

Based on the data gathered by an organization, Applied Observability employs artificial intelligence to analyze and suggest improvements for increased effectiveness and accuracy. By giving more weight to using the correct data at the right time for quick action based on verified stakeholder actions rather than intentions, it enhances data implementation. This could result in an immediate boost in operational efficiency and a significant competitive edge for your company.

Management of AI Trust, Risk, and Security (AI TRiSM)

Even though we have all heard a lot about AI over the past few years, many businesses are still only beginning to apply it.

It’s hardly surprising that AI Trust, Risk, and Security Management (AI TRiSM) will be a major focal point in the IT industry given the attention on risk placed on every industry in the wake of the epidemic. In order to assist an organization’s governance, dependability, security, and general health, AI TRiSM integrates techniques for explaining AI results with new models for proactive management of AI security as well as controls for privacy and ethical concerns.

Industry-Specific Cloud Platforms

For more than ten years, cloud adoption has been a key driver of digital transformation. 2023 will almost probably see the emergence of increasingly advanced, sector- and organization-specific cloud adoption strategies. Industry Cloud platforms may end up being the most significant step toward cloud adoption to date because they combine SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS with tailored capabilities.

Platform Engineering

Expect to see more personalization as adoption increases and digital channels develop. Platform engineering provides a set of tools and skills that are created and organized for usability. This could result in more efficient workflows for both development teams and end users.

The Value of Wireless

The value added by the integration of wireless technologies through a vast, interconnected environment is only beginning to be scratched. In the upcoming years, we’ll see wireless endpoints significantly superior to current endpoint communication capabilities in their ability to sense, e-charge, find, and monitor people and things. Wireless-value realization networks offer real-time analytics and insights in addition to enabling devices to directly harvest network energy, which is another step towards optimizing the acquired data.

Mega-apps

Superapps provide a platform from which third parties can create and distribute their own mini apps by combining the capabilities of an app, a platform, and a digital ecosystem into a single application. An end user can activate micro or mini apps within the superapp, allowing for a more personalized app experience.

Adaptive AI

Adaptive AI enables speedy adaptability to the continuously changing requirements of the real-world business landscape by using real-time response to new data and goals. Adaptive AI offers obvious benefits but putting these systems into place necessitates a complete reengineering of automated decision-making systems, which will have a significant influence on the process architectures of many firms.

Metaverse

You’re probably already aware of the phrase “metaverse,” as mentioned above, due to Mark Zuckerberg. But if Meta’s underwhelming stock performance is any indication, you’re one of the many people who isn’t yet convinced of the metaverse’s advantages.

In any case, metaverse technologies that enable the digital duplication or improvement of tasks often performed in the physical world should not be disregarded. Even if the pilot versions fall short of expectations, there is simply too much at stake and the possibilities are far too alluring for us to write off metaverse technologies just yet.

Eco-Friendly Technology

Up until recently, the tech industry was obsessed solely on increasing the potency of new technology. However, as technology permeates every aspect of our lives, new investments are being made in technology that are both energy efficient and supportive of sustainable behaviors.  Software for managing emissions, artificial intelligence, traceability, and analytics for energy efficiency are enabling both developers to create environmentally friendly technology and business executives to investigate new markets and opportunities for sustainable growth.

Conclusion

Knowing the newest tech trends is crucial for forward-thinking business leaders and entrepreneurs, whether you’re trying to adopt tech that optimizes your firm or looking to undergo a full digital transformation. It’s also crucial to work with innovators who share your views and have a track record of implementing digital technologies successfully.
