As 2022 draws to a close, it’s time to look forward to 2023 and anticipate what tech trends are on the horizon. What can we expect to see more of, and how could evolving technology affect your business? To help you prepare, here’s a look at the major technology trends developing as we move into 2023 and beyond.
There’s no single definition of the metaverse, but we can think of it as a virtual world — a 3D version of the internet that creates an immersive new reality. As the metaverse grows, this definition will likely change too. However, one thing is certain — we’re going to see more of the metaverse in 2023. According to data compiled by Metaversed, the metaverse already has 400 million unique monthly users, and this number is expected to grow.
Adaptive AI gives machine learning an upgrade. This technology can generate its own code based on what it learns from the data it receives, such as through chatbots and other interactive tools. The result? Improved accuracy and a more agile IT environment. In 2023, we can expect more retailers, manufacturers, and IT companies to leverage such technology trends to improve the customer experience and make data-driven decisions.
A super app is like a suite of mini-apps unified into a single app or platform. The end user can use and remove the mini-apps to suit their preferences, all without leaving the main super app. You can use technology trends like this to develop new apps, consolidate services, and scale your IT capabilities to improve the customer or employee experience, depending on your goals.
Ninety percent of tech executives surveyed by IEEE believe that quantum computing will play a leading role in developing new encryption strategies for protecting crucial data. Quantum computing can be used to solve the most complex problems and perform homomorphic encryption — where data is analyzed without decrypting it first. The result? Enhanced security without compromising on data sharing or business development.
From more efficient architectural modeling to delivery automation, businesses can use drones in every sector to streamline their commercial operations. Undoubtedly, we’ll see more drone technology in 2023 as businesses take advantage of its agility and cost-effectiveness.
As the world becomes more eco-conscious, we’re now exploring how to use technology to reduce emissions and build a more sustainable world. We expect to see more focus on devising solutions designed to facilitate business growth sustainably, helping companies achieve their objectives while increasing IT efficiency and enterprise sustainability.
As blockchain technology remains popular, we’re expecting a greater emphasis on blockchain development — especially around cryptocurrencies, asset tokenization, and smart contracts. Cryptography, designed to protect blockchain transactions, will also likely develop in 2023.
Hackers are becoming more sophisticated each year, and cybersecurity must evolve to meet the challenges. In 2023, we anticipate a greater emphasis on cloud security and end-user protection and companies increasingly adopting a “zero trust” culture.
