2021 was all about 5G, cybersecurity, artificial intelligence and virtual reality. Employers were getting used to the idea of employees working from home and the pandemic brought a need to bridge the digital divide in rural areas. With 2022 quickly approaching, what is in store for us when it comes to technology? Read our predictions below! 

Artificial Intelligence

According to Analytic Insights, “The AI and machine learning industry are expected to expand at a CAGR of 44% to US$9 billion by 2022.” Leading the tech advancements in artificial intelligence is automation in cybersecurity. These automated processes will make data more secure and enhance the effectiveness of your business’s IT department. Artificial chat-bots will improve customer experiences in 2022 and the combination of robots and humans will enhance cognitive performance, known as augmented intelligence. According to Gartner, 40% of operations teams will utilize AI-augmented automation to boost IT efficiency by 2023.

A Greener Tomorrow

According to the Uptime Institute, companies are not keeping track of their environmental impact despite the global sustainability push. It seems that there will be a change in this in 2022. Large companies like Facebook and Microsoft have already begun paving the way for sustainable data centers. In 2022 we will see many companies follow along and focus on:

  • Building sustainable data centers
  • Sustainable power and cooling
  • Industry adoption of green technologies

Along with greener data centers, we can expect to see many advancements in electronic cars, renewable energy and changes in company climate commitments. 

Keeping Our Heads in the Cloud

2020 and 2021 saw a significant increase in cloud adoption due to the pandemic and employees working from home. In 2022 the adoption of cloud will continue to grow. According to Forbes,the focus will shift away from cloud tools and platforms that improve a specific problem and more toward a more holistic approach centered around enterprise wide cloud migration. In addition, companies like Google and Amazon have already invested in cloud gaming platforms where you can play games on your smartphones or tablets. With the popularity of cloud gaming and streaming services, it is safe to say that the cloud is essential to our day-to-day activities.
