Tech and mobile trends to keep an eye on in 2021
A new year has arrived and with it the opportunity to do more and better. There are some important trends that companies and managers must keep an eye on:
Cloud-based Mobile Apps – yes, a trend for many years!
Mobile applications are more sophisticated, easier to deploy and faster to access than ever. Industry experts believe that solutions like Google Drive, Slack, Dropbox, and Amazon Cloud Player will be, again, a hit in 2021. These apps are already popular within mobile- and cloud-first companies. In 2021 we can expect more cloud-based apps, with lower development costs, higher performance and better user experience.
The rise of Edge Computing
Edge Computing is an evolution of the cloud. Cloud computing is now moving to each device, which becomes part of the cloud. Edge Computing has many forms like a smartphone or a wearable health monitor. According to Gartner around 10% of enterprise-generated data is created and processed outside a traditional centralized data center or cloud. By 2025 this figure will reach 75%.
2021 – the year of 5G Wireless Technology to kick-off
Are you ready? Data from Statistica revelas that by 2024 the number of 5G subscriptions will rise to 1,9 billion worldwide. This growth in high-speed wireless adds huge opportunities to mobile technology products and services. Never forgetting the responsibility of security and privacy.
A Better Customer Experience? Yes, with Predictive Analytics
Did you know that there are 4.3 million apps (Android / IOS), but only 0,01 % of them will be successful (Statistica)? Predictive Analytics can surely help to improve these numbers. Using analytics like machine learning, data mining and statistics, companies will be able to deliver more tailored solutions, in order to enhance customer experience.
