Technological Trends That Will Change 2024

Technological Trends That Will Change 2024

This has been a year full of innovations and interesting technological advances that have transformed and are transforming society and the world economy.

However, the rapid advancement of digital technology means that we must constantly look ahead, concentrating on the discoveries and technologies that will shape 2024. Certain tendencies recur (with updated methods), while others emerge. who, in the upcoming months, will be quite influential.

In this article, we write about the top technological trends that will change 2024 and change your life.

Generative AI

It may seem obvious to start with generative artificial intelligence, but it has become, indisputably, the most influential technology of the moment.

We have only seen its first steps, and 2024 will be the moment in which we will truly begin to see all the potential it has. In addition, we will be able to see an approach aimed at democratizing knowledge and training in different business roles and functions, as well as technical ones.

"GenAI-enabled apps will be deployed in production environments and/or generative AI models and APIs utilized by more than 80% of enterprises by 2026, compared to less than 5% in 2023," a Gartner estimate states. This is a highly impressive number that will contribute to the commercialization of new goods more quickly, increased productivity and efficiency in business, hyper-personalization, and universal access to the most cutting-edge technology currently accessible.

Cybersecurity as a central pillar

Cyberattacks have become the main concern of companies in recent years. For this reason, cybersecurity has ceased to be a priority and has become an absolute necessity.

IT leaders must take a pragmatic and systemic approach to continuously adjust cybersecurity optimization priorities. The best way to achieve this is through basic steps such as using encrypted services, training and raising employee awareness, performing pen testing, creating and updating protocols and software, validating compliance and governance…

And finally, adopt a Zero Trust approach, a model that assumes potential data breaches and verifies each request as if it came from an uncontrolled network. Thus, each access request is strongly authenticated, authorized within policy restrictions, and inspected for anomalies.

“Phygital” convergence and digital twins

A novel concept that refers to the space created in which the real and digital worlds converge. The two are increasingly intertwined, and technologies such as augmented reality, virtual reality, and immersive experiences are breaking down the blurred line between one and the other.

Closely linked to digital twins, we are witnessing a moment in which the digital is becoming more realistic and the real much more flexible and malleable. With the use of this technology, we may alter any component in the digital realm until it reaches its peak performance in the physical world.

It is a trend that will accelerate new digital skills in all types of jobs, as well as perfect business processes, improve efficiency, and exponentially save costs.

Quantum computing

We recently shared an article with you about whether it is time to prepare for quantum computing, and the conclusion was clear: a resounding yes.

It is a kind of computing that utilizes two quantum phenomena: superposition and entanglement. It is a technology that has the potential to optimize investment strategies, perform encryption, or discover new products in time frames never seen before.

The great differentiating factor of this trend is that quantum computers are much faster than normal computers; For this reason, large companies such as Microsoft, AWS or Google are putting great efforts into innovation in this field. Its global market revenue is expected to exceed $2.5 billion by 2029.

Green Tech

We are in a time of environmental crisis, and technology is one of the keys to helping create an ecological balance and social rights.

Governments and organizations are committing to zero emissions agreements and sustainable technologies to prevent, mitigate, and adapt to environmental risks. They improve outcomes in terms of human rights, well-being, or prosperity, as well as strengthening business conduct, developing capabilities, or improving overall performance.

Thanks to new technologies such as AI, blockchain, cloud computing, extended reality, or robotics, among many others, a greener and more sustainable future can be created without giving up efficiency and business growth.

The importance of data

Data is one of the most important assets for a company, and good use of it can be a differentiating factor compared to the competition. They are key to making more effective business decisions and have a great impact on the success of a company.

Here we find a concept like datafication, which consists of transforming everything into devices or software driven by data. What does this mean? Well, tasks are modified by data-driven technology, such as smartphones or office applications, which need to be stored correctly and securely.

Therefore, a Data-Driven strategy helps companies create new customer experiences, accelerate operations, capitalize on new market opportunities, and have the agility to pivot when the unforeseen occurs.

Platform Engineering

It is the art of developing and overseeing internal self-service portals. In other words, every platform is a layer that is made and kept up to date by a dedicated product team and intended to satisfy user needs through integration with other tools and procedures.

This strategy optimizes the developer experience while accelerating the delivery of commercial value. Additionally, it reduces cognitive load by improving developer experience and productivity, improves your ability to run, manage, and develop your applications, improves talent retention, and ensures reliability and security.

Smarter apps

Last year, we talked to you about super apps, a combination of an application, a platform, and a digital ecosystem, all within the same application, which created personalized, attractive, and broader-reaching user experiences.

With the arrival of generative AI, business applications take a step further, as they will now be much smarter, transforming the experience of customers, users, product owners, and developers.

By incorporating data from transactions and external sources, intelligent applications provide information within the applications that business users already use; and thanks to AI they add predictions or recommendations, which allows applications to be adapted to the user, resulting in better results and decision-making based on data.

Robotic Process Automation (RPA)

Closely linked to artificial intelligence and machine learning, RPA automates business processes such as interpreting applications, processing transactions, managing data, or even responding to emails.

Its main advantage is that it automates repetitive tasks that employees used to do, allowing them to focus on more creative and productive tasks. In addition, it saves costs, increases profitability, reduces the time to complete long tasks, and has a lower probability of error.

Therefore, it helps to take advantage of the human talent of companies and is very useful in the collection and storage of various data and sectors such as finance, customer service, or human resources.

IoT and hyperconnection

We are witnessing a time in which sensors and networks of connected IoT devices have become a fundamental point for creating digital twins, building the metaverse, improving the functioning of intelligent machines, or designing the cities of the future.

IoT technology collects and interprets the data collected by industrial machines to subsequently offer information about the process, improve efficiency, save production costs, detect new business opportunities and consumer trends, or promote innovation. of the products.

Predictions indicate that by 2030, there will be over 50 million IoT devices in use, so we are just getting started on all that is possible. Thus, a massive network of interconnected devices can be created that provide greater security, efficiency, and decision-making for companies, as more data is collected and analyzed.

If you are looking for a specific innovative model that optimizes your business or want to launch a complete digital transformation, at Plain Concepts, we are always aware of the new technological trends that arise. We offer a wide variety of digital solutions for all types of businesses, and we can help you find the one that best suits your needs.
