3 Major Business Technology Trends to Expect in 2021
As we head into 2021, here are three significant business technology trends to expect:
- Growth in Hyper-converged Infrastructure Market: The hyper-converged infrastructure market is poised to grow by USD 32.45 bn during 2020-2024, progressing at a CAGR of 32% during the forecast period. All types of industries, including financial services, healthcare, education, government, and many more, benefit from hyper-converged systems. For instance, hyper-converged systems allow organizations to streamline IT operations, consolidate analytics, and improve scalability. Moreover, hyper-converged systems can radically transform operations with artificial intelligence, which leads us to our next information technology trend to expect in 2021.
- Increased Reliance on Artificial Intelligence: Many organizations already take advantage of artificial intelligence to improve efficiency and performance. As we head into 2021, more and more companies will continue to rely on artificial intelligence to gain a competitive edge. Forrester predicts that in 2021, more than a third of companies in adaptive and growth mode will look to AI to help with workplace disruption for both location-based, physical, or human-touch workers and knowledge workers working from home.
- Focus on Technology to Empower Remote Workers: The pandemic this year has caused significant disruption to how we work. Unfortunately, for those organizations unprepared for this change, this rapid move from the work office to the home office has led to some challenges. However, despite the initial setbacks, working from home has its benefits, and this trend is expected to double in 2021. According to a recent survey, information technology decision-makers expect permanent remote work to double to 34.4% of their companies’ workforces in 2021, compared with 16.4% before the coronavirus outbreak, resulting from positive productivity trends. Businesses should adopt a hybrid IT approach to help ensure business continuity and enable productivity for remote workers. Additionally, they must look for ways to make sure their technology systems continue adjusting to their ever-changing requirements.
