The last year was unique, not only for the people but also for the companies. Because of the Covid 19 crises, you had to adapt, or your business would be dead. The companies had to adapt to the new need and demands of the customers.
Read the following article and find out more about the trends that will probably have a big growth.
Work from home
The virus forced all the companies into remote working. Some research showed that in 2021 we should see almost 30% of the global population workforce working from their homes. These numbers are huge and are also affecting the IT sector.
This will be very challenging for companies to secure their data because most of the employees will work from home, and their networks are not that safe. The most important thing for the company is to make sure that the home networks are safe.
If your staff can’t provide you with a safe working system, then you should consider outsourcing.
Edge computing will have a significant role in 2021. In 2021 we will see a rise in technology in many sectors of business. What does edge computing mean?
The most basic explanation of edge computing is a way for remote locations to have the opportunity to use all the data in real-time. For example, if your organization is working with another IT company to develop an app that can determine if someone is wearing a face mask or not. With an old setup, cameras would be placed all over the building, transmitting the video images for processing. Still, with edge computing, those images are processed into the camera and are sent to the server for use.
The perfect helping tool to make your business better in every way. With artificial intelligence, you will have an insight into the customers’ desires; you can use robots, have more voice assistants, add more security with facial recognition, and many more capabilities for your software. The use of AI is showing no signs of slowing down.
Mobile and web platforms
More and more people are using the mobile platform. There is a significant decline in desktop platforms. This trend will continue for 2021 and for the years to come. Research showed that a little bit above 50% of the market share is of mobile usage, while desktop usage is just over 46%.
This means that your company website must be mobile-friendly, and it will also be a big plus if your company can offer a mobile app.
