Among the challenges of 2021, technology is seen as the main projectile of innovation in a context where the pandemic will continue to modify consumer habits and business models. According to Forrester, companies will continue to accelerate their spending on cloud, security and risk, networks, and mobility.

Below we will take a tour of the main technological trends that will mark the IT sector during this new year.     

Business software: it allows to reduce the time of dedication necessary for repetitive tasks, reduces operating costs, as well as administrative tasks, thanks to the speed of responses and the progressive elimination of unproductive procedures. 

IT Services: hiring an external IT company will help you in the management of areas that present problems within the company, improving its efficiency and projection in the market.

Antit stands out for having a highly qualified IT staff capable of not only adapting to your company but also giving you that boost you need to stand out in an increasingly competitive market that requires us to keep constantly innovating with the latest technology.         

Privacy Enhancement Technology - An emerging group of technologies such as homomorphic encryption that enables calculations to be performed on encrypted data, so that data can be analyzed and insights can be gained without revealing the data.  

Allowing organizations to share data securely without compromising confidentiality.

Distributed Cloud: This will be another IT trend allowing cloud services to be distributed across different physical locations, although the domain remains the responsibility of the public cloud provider.

This tactic makes it easy to cut costs, but according to Gartner, it also means that organizations are still benefiting from the public cloud and are not managing their private cloud, which can be costly and complex in the long run.

Edge Computing: it is one of the technologies that will define and revolutionize how humans and devices connect to the internet, bringing the cloud closer to the user.

This model allows optimizing the bandwidth and, therefore, the service provided, especially for IoT or IoB deployments.

Anywhere operations: this digital and remote strategy allows enabling the company's access and delivery services regardless of the location of customers, employees, or even partners to operate efficiently.

This trend will continue to evolve over the next year, driving the adoption of cloud and as-a-service solutions.

Cybersecurity Mesh: It is a distributed architectural approach to scalable, flexible, and reliable cybersecurity control. According to Gartner, the cybersecurity mesh essentially allows the security perimeter to be defined around the identity of a person or thing. 

Artificial Intelligence Engineering - Provides organizations with a pathway by allowing Artificial Intelligence to be part of the core DevOps process rather than a set of isolated, specialized projects. 

Hyperautomation: the idea is that everything that can be automated in an organization should be automated by optimizing processes and reducing costs.

This practice will allow us to gain efficiency, effectiveness, and agility in the organization through various interconnected technologies.
