Four Trending Technologies in 2020
Since the beginning of time people agreed to disagree, yet Heraclitus, the Greek philosopher said: “Change is the only constant in life”. This saying is applied nearly on everything including, but not limited to, Technology. Over the past few decades, technology has been evolving rapidly with no control over its crazy pace. There’s almost a newly invented tool or device on an hourly basis. The aim behind that is to tackle people’s daily problems and make their lives easier, faster, and better. With technology’s revolutionary advancements, it seems like people can no longer function without it.
We know it is very overwhelming to adapt to all of these innovations and keep up with them. That’s why we have crafted this article to get you acquainted with the latest trending technologies in the IT industry. Among myriads of them, ICT Misr has adopted four of those trends which have unbelievably transformed our lives.
1- Artificial Intelligence (AI)
AI existed way before the internet did. However, it has been revolutionizing over the years to be the way it is today. But what is AI in the first place? Simply put, it is a computer system that is built to think like humans and mimic their actions. It has been implemented everywhere around you affecting how you live, work, and play.
Since we have mentioned work; isn’t it the time to bring it to your business? AI is designed to be a supporting tool. It can easily automate your business processes, analyze your data, and extract trusted insights, and make business predictions. It can do that faster than humans and in a more accurate manner. You can build your own AI strategy to particularly address your needs, satisfy your customers, and increase your return on investment (ROI).
2- Machine Learning (ML)
ML is one of the most common types of Artificial Intelligence (AI). It is deployed in a wide range of applications and industries including data analytics and pattern recognition to name a few. But what does it do? It is used to process sheer amounts of data rapidly and recognize patterns. This is done through algorithms that learn over time to get better and better. ML is also used to teach computer programs how to carry out tasks with minimal human intervention.
Business-wise, it handles too much data that cannot be processed by human beings. Even if there is a human being capable of processing this amount of data, it would not be as accurate and they definitely would miss out some patterns. It completes numerous tasks promptly while reducing company costs. Moreover, it generates helpful insights and predictions which eventually lead to an optimized customer experience.
Do you feel confused? Let us clear that up. We know that cybersecurity is not a newly surfaced trend, however, how advanced it became actually is. Nowadays, cybersecurity is considered the most revolutionizing technology. It has been rapidly evolving to keep up with the rising number of global threats. And because safety comes first, the toughest security measures needed to be taken straight away.
With multiple layers of protection, cybersecurity is designed to effectively prevent, detect, and respond to all kinds of cyberattacks. In other words, it protects data from the relentless illegal prompts to access it. Its primary aim is to defend assets against threats by achieving effective Security Orchestration, Automation, and Response (SOAR) capabilities.
4- Cloud Computing
The dream of achieving on-demand services on a pay-as-you-go basis is finally fulfilled. These services encompass storage, files, software, and servers which are customized to address your business needs. The main idea behind cloud computing is giving you the ability to rent whatsoever from the aforementioned services. Besides allowing you to access your data without the need of being physically near.
Cloud computing empowers your business with robust software and IT infrastructure regardless of your business size. You will not be locked up in one state, because you can easily scale up or down your services according to your business conditions. It is also a cost-effective solution because you don’t need to have to own the infrastructure and pay upfront huge amounts of money. Furthermore, it eliminates worry about IT management which results in allowing you to only focus on your business growth.
