Technology And Trends That Will Help Shape The Enterprise IT

Enterprise Trends

Enterprise Trends In 2018… The year 2017 was a landmark year for the Enterprise IT. On one hand, technologies like Software Defined Networking (SDN), Internet of Things (IoT), and Artificial Intelligence (AI) came in the mainstream. On the other hand, SMEs have also started leveraging technology to serve their customers in a better way. The inclusion of enterprise IT has made the SMEs more competitive than ever.

The start of 2018 brings a lot of expectations and predictions in the technology domain. It is interesting to jot down the top tech trends that are capable to transform the thriving enterprise IT into the sector that can offer tangible benefits.

Here are top five technology trends that are going to impact the enterprise IT in 2018:

  1. IoT will Get AI and Robotics Advantage

AI and Machine Learning, after passing through various stages of evolution, are ready to drive innovation across various industry sectors and IT arena. A report published by IDC has revealed that over half of the enterprise infrastructure would use cognitive and AI in one or other form by 2021 to improve productivity at a reduced cost. The prediction comes as we witness a rapid incorporation of AI in the corporate world.

IoT will play a major role in the organization in 2018. Now, the challenge is to integrate the device management into the existing IT infrastructure without causing disruption. Here AI and robotics come into the picture. Both these technologies would offer intelligent automation to manage IoT devices efficiently.

  1. SDN is Ready to Take Off

As the SDN advances, companies around the globe have started exploring the possibilities of virtual network services. We can see the broader adoption of SDN in the near future. The software-defined model will take charge of entire IT infrastructure soon. Also, the application-aware networking concept will play a major role in managing the performance, functionalities, and security of apps in the complex digital world.

When the cloud, 5G, and IoT technologies will converge, they will give rise to both machine learning and SDN solutions. They will improve the overall experience of consumers and enable expansion of B2B model.

  1. DevSecOps Approach will Prevail

Let’s face it. Security concerns loom larger than before due to increasing incidences of cyber attacks. Companies may need to consider the security while adopting the devops approach in IT operations. The DevSecOps approach addresses this requirement and will gain strength in 2018. There is no exaggeration in predicting 2018 as the year of DevSecOps because security teams, which are equipped with the next-gen IT security tools, rely heavily on the insertion of security in the development lifecycle.

As we attempt to prevent high-profile data breaches and Malware attacks on the business IT system, the nascent DevSecOps approach will become more important in the near future.

  1. Augmented Reality will Rule at Workplace

The phenomenal success of Pokémon Go has paved the way for Augmented Reality (AR) in our daily life. As per the prediction of Deloitte Global, tens of thousands of apps with AR capability will be available during 2018. Talking about the industries, auto, real estate, and manufacturing sectors will remain the biggest beneficiaries of AR.

However, experts believe that AR will find its way across various industry sectors. In the IT sector, for example, AR tutorials can help professionals to maintain and deploy hardware in data centers.

  1. Edge Computing is Here to Stay

Low latency and high throughput are much in demand for high-end, edge applications. It gives rise to edge computing. Let’s take an example of a self-driving car to understand the importance of edge computing. A self-driving car may need a real-time computation to take direction-based judgments. It is only possible when a car can access a server and the computation completes in milliseconds. This type of latency requires edge computing architecture.

We can apply the same principle to enhance the workload management capabilities at the workplace. Companies can leverage the highly distributed edge computing network in 2018 and beyond to increase scalability and productivity.

Along with these trends, we can see the prevalence of other technical aspects like interoperability and automation this year.

Wrapping Up

Though we have taken the major technology trends in our list, we cannot rule out the probability of the advent of other technological advancements in the year 2018. Don’t sit on the fence, time is just right to embrace enterprise IoT and get the competitive edge over your peers!
