Digital Business Era: Strategic Technology Trends for 2016 / Part II

In my previous post I’ve described 5 strategic technology trends for 2016. With this post I would like to develop this topic and look at other trends which can play important role in digital business era next year.

  • Trend 6 – Ambient User Experience
    Under ‘ambient user experience’ Gartner refers to the ability of  devices and sensors to gather more advanced contextual data as AMbient UX. The main difficulty could be connected with “application design, anticipating this level of device synchronicity and collaboration, for lack of better framing”. Gartner insists that the devices will be so smart and intelligent that they will organise our lives without our  noticing that they are doing so.
  • Trend 7 – 3D-printing Materials
    The development of 3D-printing technology has led to increase in number of materials suitable for this purpose. Now 3D-printing is using nickel alloys, carbon fiber, glass, conductive inks, pharmaceutical and biological materials. A variety of materials will continue to grow, and 3D-printers will be used in new areas, such as aerospace, medical, automotive, energy, and military-industrial complex. 3D-printing has caught its stride now that companies like Tesla are using it to build engine parts, and SpaceX is using it to create rocket parts.
  • Trend 8 – Information of Everything
    According to Gartner, by 2020, “25 billion devices will be generating data about almost every topic imaginable”. This number gives at the same time opportunity and challenge.  There will be a terrific number of data, but making sense of it will be the trick.
  • Trend 9 – Advanced Customer Architecture
    Gartner notes that companies are pushing the envelope on making technology mimic human brains. Thus, advanced customer architecture will become more human and intelligent.
  • Trend 10 – Mesh App and Service Architecture
    According to analysts, companies will move from linear designs applications to a more flexible architecture, applications and services. Based on a software-configurable services, this new approach will give the performance with flexibility and speed. Mesh app and service architecture, the new emerging method of building distributed applications, offers a flexible and scalable delivery of implementation as on-premise and in the cloud.
