AI and Machine Learning Technologies

The rise of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technologies. These technologies are already being used in a variety of industries, from healthcare and finance to retail and transportation, and their adoption is only expected to increase in the coming year. AI and ML will be used to automate tasks, improve customer experiences, and provide organizations with valuable insights and data-driven decision making. Just this past month we have seen the explosive growth for ChatGPT by OpenAI.

Data Privacy and Security

The growing importance of data privacy and security. As more and more organizations collect and store sensitive customer data, the need for effective data privacy and security measures will become increasingly crucial. This will involve not only implementing the appropriate technical measures, but also ensuring that organizations have the necessary policies and procedures in place to protect customer data. We will also see a push for transparency so users actually know how their data is being used. I for one have not have AI turn me into art because of privacy concerns.

Cloud Computing

This has been on my list every year — The increasing adoption of cloud computing. Cloud computing has already become an essential part of many organizations’ IT infrastructure, and this trend is only expected to continue in 2023. The cloud offers organizations a number of benefits, including increased flexibility, scalability, and cost savings.

As a result, more and more organizations are expected to move their operations to the cloud in the coming year. We will see more and more organizations require a scalable platform to build applications on top of based on their business needs. Watch out for more platforms and new cloud native applications being built rather than the lift and shift we have been experiencing.

Internet of Things (IoT)

The rise of the Internet of Things (IoT). The IoT refers to the growing network of connected devices that are able to communicate with each other and exchange data. This trend is expected to continue to grow in 2023, with more and more devices becoming connected and more organizations using IoT technology to improve their operations and enhance the customer experience. I’ve even started to see connected toothbrushes so what won’t be connected? Everything will be connected but this does bring up bandwidth concerns for our current infrastructure.

Digital Customer Experiences

The growing importance of digital customer experiences. As more and more organizations compete for customers in the digital marketplace, the quality of the customer experience will become increasingly important. This will involve not only providing customers with a seamless and convenient online experience, but also personalizing the customer experience based on their individual preferences and needs. The pandemic made organizations start to think more digital but now consumers demand more and better experiences. Also as employees work remotely look for better enterprise solutions for the workforce. UI/UX and best practices will be a major emphasis in 2023.

Overall, these trends point to a future in which technology plays an increasingly important role in every aspect of our lives. As organizations continue to embrace digital transformation, they will need to stay on top of these trends in order to remain competitive and provide their customers with the best possible experiences.
