The technology landscape has made a dramatic shift in the past couple of years. There has been an emergence of new age technology, that has molded the role of telecom players to not just being providers of data and voice services but become the active steam engines that are at the forefront of the digital revolution. Here are the happening things in the world of digital information technology:
Cloud computing has become one of the fastest growing markets in the Asia-Pacific region. Cloud computing refers to the delivery of IT services through the internet.
It aims at the idea of sharing resources rather than developing devices to handle the application. The on-demand availability, the ease of scalability and the supercomputing features are what makes cloud computing one of the important things to watch out for. The possibilities of cloud computing have even been able to improve operations of businesses like assisted living facilities.
IoT Connected Devices
Day-to-day operations have been revolutionized by the adoption of IoT (internet of things) solutions. IoT connected smart devices help to provide in-depth analysis that can then be used to make a load to business process happen. Enterprises, across the industries ranging from logistics, healthcare and manufacturing, are all taking into their hands the streamlined technology of IoT. The benefits are stacked, ranging from cost savings, delivering value to customers and oiling business operations to run smoother.
Automated Business Tasks
Automation is a way to bypass the mundane and repetitive business tasks. This could have a profound effect on the way a business runs and reduces costs. Robotic process automation (RPA) has started to appear in various industries, and is modernizing the very foundation of business processes- IT support, back office work, remote infrastructure and workflow.
Big Data For Big Insights
The use of big data allows for one to leverage data that is collected throughout the value chain, so as to gain insights that boost customer satisfaction and optimize operation. Many of the enterprises across various sectors are making use of big data analytics so as to improve the customer experience, predict future market trends, optimize operations and better direct marketing efforts, allows for real-time dynamic pricing, and allow for achieving targeted responses. Even businesses as physical as construction and engineering can benefit from technology like Building Information Modeling.
All of the upcoming technologies are expected to make waves across all industries. With newer technologies making the scene, a new set of challenges will arise. Our society has been on track to continuously adapt to the changing marketplace, and it will continue to do so.
