Technology is rapidly evolving today, allowing for faster change and progress and thereby accelerating the rate of change. However, the breakout of COVID-19 has caused a lot more to shift in these couple of years than just technology trends and the developing technology.
Therefore we need to be keeping up with evolving technologies and the most recent technological trends. It also entails keeping an eye on the future to determine which abilities you would need to find secure work tomorrow. The implications of IT are not limited to just some specific fields, but instead are widespread. IT has revolutionized the world of customer services along with many other fields. A Mediacom user contacts the provider using the Mediacom phone number. The software is then used by the agent to instantly ping the right person to further contact and to create an urgent ticket number.
Without a doubt the field of IT continues to grow with every passing minute, we have gathered here the top 5 latest technologies in the IT industry that you should certainly keep an eye on as they will continue to only expand in the future.
1. Internet Of Things (IoT)
Several ‘things’ now include Wi-Fi connectivity, allowing them to stay connected to the internet and also one and another. Resultantly, the Internet of Things came into existence. The Internet of Things; or what we commonly refer to as IoT, is a bid of the future. As it has already enabled several devices such as cars, home appliances, and plenty more to be connected to the Internet and to be exchanging data.
We are already using IoT for the benefit of consumers in plenty of ways. We can preheat our overs on our way home from work, can lock the doors remotely, keep a track of fitness using Fitbits, etc.
The majority of the people even today have been consistently associating the blockchain industry with only cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin whereas it has been used to provide security in plenty of other ways. If we understand blockchain in its most basic and simple form, it is the data that you can only add to, you cannot change, nor subtract anything. Because you are creating a data chain, the term ‘chain’ was hence coined. Blockchains are considered to secure since the data cannot be changed in any form. Furthermore, because these chains are consensus-based, no single party can control the data, nor do you end up needing any third party to overlook nor validate any transactions.
3. Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality
Virtual Reality is the latest technological trend. Augmented reality is what enhances the user’s environment while virtual reality immerses them in it. Although this technology trend has so far been mostly employed for gaming purposes, it is also being used for training, such as the stimulations being used for training the US Army, Navy, Coast Guard Ship captains, etc.
5G services are predicted to completely transform our lives. It will be done by simply enabling the services based on sophisticated technologies, such as virtual and augmented reality, cloud-based gaming and so much more to the users.
5G is also predicted to be utilized in factories, high definition cameras that will aid in safety, smart retail, smart grid control, etc.
5. Quantum Computing
Quantum computing uses quantum phenomena like superposition and entanglement to do calculations. Because of its ability to readily analyze, monitor, and query the data to act on from any source, this technology is also involved in breaking off the spread of Covid-19 and developing vaccines. Banking and finance have also witnessed the implications of quantum computing which is being used to control credit risks, fraud detections, and high-frequency trading.
These Quantum computers are currently much faster than any ordinary computer and major companies like Google, AWS, and Microsoft are working on quantum computing devices now.
Even though technologies are always developing and altering all around us, the aforementioned latest technologies have provided ease to people’s lives everywhere around. It is also exhilarating to think of how these technologies will grow in the future and what more is to come in the world of IT that will be transforming our lives for the better.
