Which path is digital transformation going to walk in 2021?
Long months of work from home and changing consumer habits are going to impact digital transformations in 2021. We are witnessing a few powerful trends that are going to equip businesses more technically to fight the challenges ahead.
Here are the top digital transformation trends to look out for this year.
Cloud Goes Hybrid
Cloud has been a strong driver of digital transformation for the last few years. 94% of enterprises have used a cloud service, and 66% already manage a central cloud team.
Cloud is going hybrid in 2021. A mix of on-premise, private, public, and remote servers is going to form the backbone of businesses. It makes sense, as going hybrid can eliminate the concerns of vendor lock-in.
Growth of Work from Home
Many companies like Google and Facebook will continue work from home policies in 2021. Businesses are realizing the benefits of remote employees, which include cost savings and more productivity.
We are going to experience a transformation in collaboration tools like Zoom or Wavebox. Along with that, businesses will invest in making remote employees' networks and devices more secure.
2021 will be a great year for empowering remote working technologies.
A Push for System Integration
System integration has been a hot topic of discussion in the realm of digital transformations. In 2020, the global system integration market was valued at $330 billion. In 2021, the market is going to grow at a CAGR of 8.5% till 2027.
What does it tell us?
Organizations are looking to streamline all business processes into a single platform. Being able to manage all your operations from one system is sure to fuel business growth.
Along with rapid integrations, we will also see improvements in middleware in 2021.
5G and Fast Internet Will be the Norm
5G is at last showing some promise of being introduced in a few markets around the world. 5G's super-fast speed will usher a new landscape in connectivity.
Plus, it's also going to drive the growth of work from home trends. You will not need to restrict yourself to a fixed broadband line and can work from anywhere.
2021 will be the year of 5G normalization. Like 4G, it will step into our daily activities and become the global standard.
AI Becomes a Part of Everyday Life
AI is not the future anymore; it's already here!
COVID-19 forced businesses and governments around the world to fall back on AI to check coronavirus's progression. The trend will continue in 2021 and affect how we live, shop, eat, or entertain ourselves.
Machine learning and any elements of AI will go through massive advancements. Chip manufacturers like NVIDIA and Intel are already working on AI-powered semiconductors.
AI is becoming a part of our lives faster than we realize.
