Top 5 Trends To Boom in 2021

Nobody knew how 2020 would end when it started. The pandemic that arose in the year forced all businesses to adopt advanced technology and digital transformation more than ever before.

Leveraging these technological changes have helped them unlock breakthrough innovations. A chain reaction of rapid technological development ensued, no matter where you are based in the world.


It is nearly impossible to escape the way new technologies are reshaping everyday life. 


To keep up with the tech industry, it is important to be aware of the future and the trends that will be emerging in 2021. As 2020 has been the most unpredictable year to date, it just shows how quickly the world can transform to make a drastic change. The tech industry is already a fast-paced evolving industry, so it is no surprise that adoption rates will be even quicker.


Here are the top 5 technological trends which we predict will see a boom  in 2021:


AI has always remained one of the biggest trends and will become an even more valuable tool in 2021 for helping businesses to interact, interpret, and understand the world around us. It has always been known for its superiority in image and speech recognition, smartphone personal assistance, and much more. AI, data scientists, and machine learning will be seen playing an unmatched role in coming years. We all know how AI has helped customers in suggestions when shopping, and now with the rise in power of cloud computing, AI will continue to benefit more and more companies in years following.

Besides, machine learning algorithms are expected to become better informed and increasingly sophisticated in solutions that they uncover for us. This technology will not just help businesses take better decisions but also in utilizing their resources, analyzing the changing pattern of consumer behavior, and driving revenues by enhancing personalized experiences.


Hyper Automation & Robotics


As seen in recent years, automation has had incredible growth but hyper automation and robotics are going to become the strategic key trends for 2021. Hyper Automation is the next level in the field of automation which refers to out of the box technology and adding more intelligence to automation solutions.


Robotics is another technology that automates jobs. Software robots will automate the work of most people by taking over unpredictable, dreary, and monotonous tasks. This can prompt a mix of both manual and automation efforts.

Since it's a data-driven automation process, it helps companies center around overseeing monotonous tasks, exercises, and mundane time-consuming duties performed by humans.

The relationship of automation with advancements like Artificial Intelligence is intelligent, taking into account how automation tools and technologies are closely interwoven & Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is the eventual future of automation & robotics. To make business operations straightforward, one of the mainstream advanced advances is Robotics Process Automation.


With Hyper Automation, your business can unlock multiple ways of doing complex things with a click of a button.

Virtual and Augmented Reality


Among the various innovations, AR and VR is an immersive technology which enables incredible sources of transformation in all sectors. Research states that while the world is approaching 2021, augmented and virtual reality will continue to have an optimal impact on industries. Working with these technologies can have enormous benefits in training, entertainment, education, and marketing. While these are the trends that have been around for much of AR and VR history, it looks to improve drastically over the coming years. This is because both have been relatively niche areas for the past several years, with many developers failing to find an app or hardware that has achieved commercial success, but with the recent improvements it looks to be changing.


With the advancements that have been made in the industry, costs have plummeted while quality has skyrocketed, giving end-users much more value. This is something that is expected to continue in the future. Its 360-degree marketing approach has started interesting brands to invest in this technology so that it could be used for a variety of purposes. Despite being a relatively young technology, the rise of AR and VR has been staggering and will continue to grow in coming years, and with the number of benefits that technology provides, the companies may lose out if not taken proper advantage of.

5G Connectivity


Since 3G opened new doors to internet connectivity, it has unlocked every technology with innovation and ease. As 3G and 4G services increase the usage of browsing the internet, use data-driven service, and increase bandwidth, 5G technology is expected to revolutionize our lives in 2021. 


5G will be leading us to digital lives by enabling us to use services that rely on advanced technology like AR, VR, AI alongside cloud computing-based service and so much more.

With 5G, all other advanced technologies will be made available anytime and anywhere for businesses. Complex machine learning applications relying on real-time access to Big Data sources can be conducted in the field, via automation. Initiatives like this will become increasingly important during 2021, where businesses look to increase automation across their workforces. It is expected that 5G technology will be used in various industries including traffic management, small grid controls, and smart retail too.


In 2021, it truly will.

Edge computing


Cloud computing has always been the mainstream with major players like AWS, Microsoft, and Google Cloud platforms dominating the market. As the adoption of cloud computing is still growing, more and more businesses are seen moving towards cloud computing services.

As businesses observe the increase in the quantity of data to be organized, they have realized the shortfall of cloud computing in most situations.


This has given rise to a new trend of Edge Computing. Edge Computing is designed to help solve some of those problems as a way to bypass the latency caused by cloud computing and getting data to a data center for processing.


Edge Computing can most commonly be used to process time-sensitive data in remote locations with limited or no connectivity to a centralized location. In those situations, edge computing acts like mini datacenters. This technology will also be seen giving rise to the Internet of Things and various other technological advancements.


Edge Computing can really give your cloud based services an...Edge. (Pardon the pun!)

So, What’s the Next Step?

Since 2020 has been a remarkable year for every small and large business, they have to deal with a lot of changes and struggles. The adoption process has encouraged innovation among businesses. 2021 will build on these innovations and then some, as industries look forward to greater automation and widespread use of solutions based on IoT, AI, AR/VR, and others.
