Top 10 Technology Trend 2020

Top 10 Technology Trend 2020

Today, technologies are evolving rapidly and the It professional recognizes that his or her role will not remain the same because Technology-based careers alter as new technology evolves. So It professionals will be constantly learning about the new technology over time. This is a generation of technology so, each business should have a foundation on Social, Mobile, Analytics and Cloud to incorporate the latest technology trends.  These days Digital workforce is crucial to offer customized products and services that adapt to the constantly changing realities.

Here is a list of top 10 new technology trend 2020

Artificial intelligence

Artificial intelligence or Machine intelligence is the intelligence that is demonstrated by machines. It has received a lot of buzz in recent years. This technology is still in its early phase but its several other branches have been developed including machine learning. These days Artificial intelligence is capable to recognize image, speech and patterns and make decision on its own. They are capable of performing these task more fast and accurate as compared to human beings. According to report five out of six American use Artificial intelligence every day in various forms including smart home devices, home personal assistants, the ride-sharing app, streaming services, navigation app and many more. It is a hot topic to discuss because Artificial intelligence is one part what we broadly refer to as an automation. Automation is a potential factor for job loss near future. According to expert automation will eliminate 73 million jobs by 2030. However, automation is also creating job like programming, testing and maintenance of AI-related devices.

Edge Computing

These days cloud computing is being popularized. To define it simply, it is the on-demand availability of computer resources especially computing power and data storage on the principle pay-as-you-go. The major player of cloud computing these days are Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure. Many business has adopted cloud computing as a business solution. Cloud computing can not fulfil every requirement when the quantity of data we are dealing with increases. Edge Computing is such a tool designed to overcome the shortcomings of Cloud Computing. Edge Computing is used to process time-sensitive data in remote locations with limited or even without connection to a centralized locations. Edge Computing is likely to increase rapidly due to the evolution of the Internet of Things (IoT). The global Edge Computing market is expected to reach $6.72 billion. If you are a software engineer then it is definitely going to create you various jobs near future.

Machine learning

Machine Learning can be viewed as a subset of Artificial Intelligence. With the help of Machine Learning, the Machines are programmed to learn to do the things they are not programmed to do. They will be able to learn by discovering patterns and insights from the data. Machine Learning can also be linked to Neural Network, Natural Language Processing (NPL) as well as Deep Learning. It is growing rapidly at present and demanding huge numbers of skilled professionals. Machine Learning jobs rank among the top emerging jobs in LinkedIn. By 2020 it is expected to grow to $8.81 billion. Machine Learning Applications can be used for patterns recognition, data analytics and data mining.

Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality

Virtual Reality (VR) is used to immerse the user in an environment while Augmented Reality is used to enhance the environment. Virtual Reality is widely used in gaming. Apart from this it also used in a simulation for various training. Augmented Reality is also widely used in various fields such as medical training, design and modelling, classroom education, fields services and many more. The Pokemon Go is a popular example of Augmented Reality. Both Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) have numerous potential in education, entertainment, training and even for performing complex virtual surgery. Google, Samsung and Oculus are the major players in the field of VR and AR. VR doesn't require a lot of specialized knowledge basic programming skills and a forward-thinking mindset can easily land a job.

Robotic Process Automation (RPA)

RPA is a technology based on Artificial Intelligence or Metaphorical software robots. RPA is a use of software for automating business processes. It can be used for interpreting applications, dealing with data, processing transactions, replying to emails and many more. It is used to automate the repetitive task that people used to do. The menial tasks of low-paid workers as well as the work of CEOs, doctors and financial management can be automated. RPA is estimated to threaten approximately 9% of the global workforce. However, RPA generates lots of job opportunities including plenty of career as a developer, project manager, business analyst, consultant, solution architect etc. You can think of dropping your career in RPA as it offers over $141,000 annually for a junior level to senior level developers on average.

Internet of Things (IoT)

 Internet of things is the devices that are being built with WiFi connectivity and are able to exchange data over the internet. It has already enabled cars, home appliances, watch to be connected and share data over the internet. IoT is still in its early stage but the IoT devices are expected to reach 30 billion by 2020. Using IoT we can lock our doors remotely, tack our fitness on Fitbits or preheat our ovens on our way to home. Cool right? It can also contribute largely on business enabling better safety, efficiency and decision making. However not enough IT professionals are getting trained for IoT jobs according to an expert. There is a wide range of option for getting started and Skills needed include device knowledge, IoT security Cloud Computing to name few.


BlockChain is an increasing list of records, called blocks that are linked to each other using cryptography. It offers data security as you only can add the data. It makes the data highly secured because it does not allow to alter the previous blocks. You don't need any third-party to validate or oversee your transactions. Many industries at present are implementing BlockChain for their transactions. Increase in this technology has offered a job for skilled professionals. It is the second-fastest-growing category of jobs today. The average salary of a BlockChain developer is $ 130,000 annually.

Cyber Security

It might not seem to be emerging technology but it is evolving as just other technologies are. The threats in Cyber Security is constantly new as a hacker who is illegally attempting to access data are not going to give up. They will always attempt to get through the data if even if the toughest security measured are taken into consideration. So it is also a part of new technology that should be adapted to enhance security. We will have Cyber Security as emerging technology as long as Hackers exists. The number of Cyber Security jobs are increasing three times faster than other tech-related jobs but these jobs mostly remain unfilled.

5G Network

5G is the fifth generation of wireless technology. It is expected to bring high impact in business in 2020. It can also be viewed as a future of communication. This wireless network will support 1,000 fold gains in capacity,10 Gb/s user experience and connection for at least 100 billion devices. Deployment of these networks will emerge between 2020 and 2030 as stated by Huawei. Network carriers will need to reduce network costs and increase bandwidth to take this speed to everyday mobile users.

Autonomous Driving

The companies like Alphabet, Tesla and Waymo are aiming together to craft impeccable Autonomous Vehicles. It has created excitement all over the world due to the concept of driverless cars. Chief of Tesla Elon mask already prepared the design of future autonomous vehicles. He stated," From our standpoint, if you fast forward a year, maybe a year and three months, but next year for sure, we'll have over a million Robo-taxis on the road. These autonomous vehicles will have functions like automated braking, lane changing, best navigation systems, sophisticated WiFI encryption and many more. I am excited to travel with the autonomous vehicle near future. Aren't you?
