What to Anticipate in the World of Tech 2022
The technology industry is one of the world's biggest industries and continues to grow with time. Recent events and world crises – including the Covid-19 pandemic, have made more people depend on tech in their daily lives. Almost all businesses have had to shift their focus to increase their online presence to continue surviving.
While 2020 and 2021 have brought many inventions and technological advancements, 2022 is no different. In this article, we take you through some of the top trends we anticipate witnessing this year.
Top predictions of tech trends in 2022
1. Data Center advancement and expansion
There has been a recent increase in the number of data centers worldwide to meet the rise of data requests. This need for more data has made data centers increase their locations and compelled the development of hyperscale data centers. A good example is NeuCentrIX (the leading data center in Indonesia) – which has extended its services to reach 13 cities around the country and is set to expand even further.
Data centers use more advanced technologies, including big data analytics, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and cloud computing to increase internet bandwidth and response time. The use of colocation technology is predicted to increase in 2022 as data centers try to be more sustainable and environmentally friendly.
2. Adoption of 5G and smart cities
The 5G technology has been the talk of the town for the last few years. It is one of the technologies that has made massive advancements despite the controversies around it. In 2022, 5G is set to expand even more as people continue embracing the technology – which is also helping with the development of smart cities.
Reports show that the smart-city markets around the world have been growing at a rate of 29% per year since 2021 and are projected to take the same trajectory till 2028. This is among the most significant tech trends boosted by private/ public collaboration to help reduce the digital gap between rural and urban metros.
3. Cyber security and data protection/ recovery
Data protection is among the most sensitive part of the IT sector. While many organizations have put in place measures to protect customer data, fraudsters are also coming up with ways to beat the system. Statistics show that with the increase in cyber security issues, over 75% of the company website are likely to experience a cyberattack by 2025.
That is why Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) is predicted to be a big tech trend in 2022. It is one of the best solutions companies could rely on for data recovery in case of a cyberattack, natural disaster, or equipment failure.
4. Hybrid cloud and multi-cloud
Covid-19 brought many challenges – but it also compelled people to adopt new remote working strategies. This is made possible by the use of hybrid cloud technology. With more organizations enabling employees to work remotely, this tech trend will grow even bigger in 2022.
In summary, the tech industry has a lot of potentials to help improve work efficiency and increase revenue for companies. 2022 offers a better chance for these technologies to grow further and foster new inventions.
