Today, human activity is directed by computer programs. As we step into the momentous 2020, and as Artificial Intelligence (AI) plays a transformational
role in the fourth industrial revolution, there are four key emerging trends that the industry is gearing up for.
Cloud Computing: The last decade has rather been mind boggling and ubiquitous in the use of cloud by different industries. Advantages of cloud
computing are abounding - less use of energy, quantum proficiency, serverless computing, speed, so forth. With high speed, and abundance space,
the coming generations of employees will be expected to bring in a novice beginning to build a strong cloud world.
Big Data: The big data analytics is a process that is transforming the way business adopt the technology to analyze their existing data for data
for process efficiencies, accuracy and sentiment building in their organizations. Enterprises across the globe are positively embracing the Big Data
Analytics to see a considerable shift in their decision-making processes and brand building. Going forward, AI-driven analytics perhaps will be the
ONLY way to ensure that business solutions are value-driven.
IoT: The marriage of AI and Internet of Things (IoT) is inevitable in 2020. In organizations where IoT devices are already implemented in their operations
we can expect to have thousands of devices collecting data for analysis. This essentially means we will acknowledge analytical solutions for IoT devices for
more transparency and relevant data. Business leaders will synergize assistive technology to run more intelligent analytics. This essentially means more and
more companies will want to try out the matured benefits of IoT and will want for data science professionals. Moving forward, IoT expertise will be one of
the key skills that would be sought out for in 2020.
Digital Engineering: Harnessing modern digital capabilities to improve an organization's efficiency value, the data engineering solutions will enable
continuous chain of innovation and competitive positioning that evolves alongside customer needs and new technical opportunities. Multiple reports have pointed
towards the engineering and development as an outsourcing trend in India. In fact, one of the reports claim that $125 billion will be spent on engineering
services in 2020 across the globe and India is expected to contribute about 40% of this trend.
These emerging trends coupled with the regulatory support through initiatives such as Make in India, Digital India and BharatNet will further complement the potential
of Engineering services.
I personally look forward to all the above skills. Organizations line up the dominos, businesses bring in the reality check from the world. While, technology builds
the complex clock and also has it ticking.
I am all excited to enter into the next decade, where innovation and competitive positioning will evolve alongside customer needs and new technical opportunities.
Wishing you all a Happy 2020!
