The recent Incidents have even though resulted in the loss of human lives it has brought in an advantage in the form of acceleration of digital transformation globally across industries. Industry experts opine that the last six months of 2020 have resulted in much progress in digital transformation leading to a Technological shift towards digitization.
The events happened has pushed digitization to full gear in 2020. In the coming years, it is expected that there will be new milestones in terms of innovation and intelligence. The following digital transformational trends are expected to show their might in 2021 and beyond.
Hyperautomation was one of the top trends in 2020 and would be there in 2021 as well. The advancement in the area of autonomous cars is an example of hyperautomation that is going to revolutionize the world of mobility in addition to the logistics sector. Digital automation devices are proving helpful in managing various situations
In 2021, the acceptance of test automation as a preferred mode of software testing is expected to be phenomenal. It would result in faster and higher quality software/hardware releases. Intelligent test automation is garnering much attention among global IT leaders. In the coming months, we can see the benefits of introducing Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) into processes like test automation.
Hyperconnectivity is a term used to define continuous connectivity between person-to-person, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine. With high-speed internet connectivity and real-time connectivity has resulted in person-to-person connectivity and person-to-machine connectivity in a much faster way. Digital capabilities havealso resulted in enterprises building an always-connected IoT ecosystem where machines/persons can communicate with each other with ease. The demand for excellent network strength has resulted in speeding up the process of 5G initiatives in 2020.
Cybersecurity is the most important concern for both the providers of digital solutions as well as the end users of those solutions. With the rise in the number of cyber incidents, there is a concern about cyber security. Digital transformation provides a perfect opportunity for hackers and malicious elements to exploit the tiniest security vulnerabilities in an organization’s IT infrastructure.
Cybersecurity remains a main priority when majority of educational institutions and organizations are now operating remotely. With the remote operating model in place, there is a greater possibility of cyberattacks. Therefore, any small mistake can prove futile to the organizations or institutions.
However, it is expected that in the coming years, Dependency on Technology will be a regular phenomenon. In such a case, organizations, as well as individuals need, to consider the risks and vulnerabilities associated with their in-house infrastructure.They need to take care of their new network setup, which is going to be much more challenging and more critical than ever before, through well-entrenchedcybersecurity.
Finally, these top three digital transformation trends are set to transform the way of doing business in 2021 and beyond for enterprises across sectors.
