4 Future IT Trends and Predictions You Should Keep an Eye On

March 24, 2022 No Comments

Featured article by Russell Emmental, Independent Technology Author


The year is 2025. Companies are evolving to digital changes and remaining operations to survive and prosper in a new normal. Leaders in the technology industry are seeking innovative methods to create business success while staying ahead of changing client expectations and needs.

That all sounds good, but what does this future actually look like? What kind of innovations can we expect to transform the upcoming year and beyond?

Continue reading for upcoming IT trends and forecasts to keep an eye on.

1. Blockchain  

While blockchain has been a bit of a buzzword in recent years, this technology is here to stay. It generates a chain of data that you can only add to, and the fact that the prior blocks cannot be changed is the key to its innovative security.

Blockchain technology is generally associated with cryptocurrencies, but its ability to provide stringent security and seamless traceability has made it useful in a variety of sectors and operations, like diamond origin authentication. It’s even simplifying the public assistance system and monitoring supply chains to ensure their efficiency.

While many industries outside the financial sector will be integrating blockchain technology by 2023, cryptocurrencies are also predicted to continue to grow. Bitcoin remains popular, and there are other currencies such as Ethereum, Ripple, and EOS to keep an eye on. Make sure to remain up to speed on current BIT, ETH, and EOS news to learn how you can fully benefit from the advancement of blockchain technology.

2. Internet of Things 

The internet of things (IoT) is a network of computers and other network devices, physical and digital objects, commodities, animals, or individuals that have unique identifiers (UIDs) and the capacity to transport data over a network without the need for a human at the other end.

You are accessing the Internet of Things if you wear a fitness tracker or wristwatch, combine your car’s sound system and GPS with your phone, or use ridesharing services like Uber or Lyft.

And it’s expanding at an astonishing rate. In 2019, there were around 26 billion IoT devices deployed worldwide. The pandemic did wipe out around 8.2% of IDC’s 14.9% growth prediction for November 2019, but what can we expect in the future?

By 2023, IoT is predicted to assist with energy management in your house, notify you and your healthcare provider of any indications of an oncoming medical crisis, and automate (unmanned) vehicles such as cars, trains, elevators, and forklifts.

3. Artificial Intelligence in Everyday Life 

Artificial intelligence is expected to contribute $15.7 trillion to the global economy between now and 2030, accounting for 26% of global GDP during that time. Artificial intelligence is used daily, demonstrating its broad range of applications. Face recognition, data processing, speech recognition, and other technological breakthroughs are all based on AI. It may also be employed in the corporate world, such as for AI-assisted customer support.

According to World Economic Forum estimates, AI would displace 85 million jobs in 26 nations by 2025, while 97 million new jobs will be generated. Some people may require some retraining, but it is better than fully replacing them. Automation, in particular, will generate new occupations and welcome a variety of existing professions – developers, testers, programmers, tech professionals, and so on.

4. Cybersecurity 

While cybersecurity is old news, it will only grow more permanent in the future. IT security software, antivirus, and other cybersecurity protections are the only things standing between our data and harmful activity. According to Verizon, 61 percent of data breaches occur in businesses with less than 1,000 employees. For example, the average time it takes to notice a data breach is half a year.

New technical improvements in cybersecurity are currently being developed. Technologies to combat deep fakes and open source vulnerabilities, for example, are being developed. Blockchain security, homomorphic encryption, and zero-knowledge proofs have all improved.


The last few years of technical growth have fueled the latest technology trends in 2021/2022. Artificial intelligence is constantly advancing, and new apps and equipment are powered by it every day. Cybersecurity is a burgeoning field. Business IT developments will transform trade and industries in the future.

We can’t predict exactly what these advancements will bring, but we know to look forward to exciting opportunities and technology we used to think was impossible.
