Five Technological Predictions for 2022

Five Technological Predictions for 2022-01

The importance of rapid flexibility in the face of uncertainty has been demonstrated throughout the past two years. CIOs in 2022 will be more focused on operational agility than they have ever been. Companies should accelerate their digital transformation initiatives and emphasize certain technological trends to prepare for the unexpected and adapt to whatever 2022 holds. CIOs understand that in order to maintain navigating this degree of change, they must first focus on talent retention and relationships.

The labor issues that businesses faced in 2021 are not going away anytime soon, so retaining employees is critical to establishing the greatest team possible. Businesses must create an environment in which employees like working. They should develop better working methods, introduce more fun, and be much more intentional about relationships in the New Year, and they will thrive.

What are the other goals that digital leaders have set for the coming year? Here are some forecasts for 2022 for CIOs and tech professionals.

In the age of hybrid work, hybrid cloud use is increasing

Leaders should reassess goals and consider balancing scale, privacy, speed, and security when firms commit to hybrid work environments. Businesses and customers require more flexibility than can be provided by traditional data center environments or pure public cloud solutions.

As a result, many businesses are exploring large new expenditures in a hybrid cloud solution. Hybrid cloud usage will accelerate in 2022, as it provides outstanding agility for growing and supporting remote employees, allowing enterprises to pivot as business demands evolve and change in an unpredictable world.

The utilization of cloud deployments

“The cloud has become the primary location for software vendors to store their data over the last few years”,

says Charles Caldwell, VP of product management, Logi Analytics. Many have even moved their applications to cloud platforms. The trend I am seeing now and what will continue in 2022 is software vendors investing in multi-cloud deployments. “Organizations will not want to be locked into a single cloud vendor due to regulations like GDPR and organizations wanting localized data”, adds Charles.

 

New hybrid workforce tools are developed

Many collaboration platforms acquired significant features in 2021, allowing them to cater to both remote and in-office workers. As companies transition to the hybrid workforce of the future, solutions will continue to grow to make communication and collaboration as seamless and efficient as possible. Collaboration is only one aspect of workforce empowerment. Businesses should also consider how to support remote employees.

To that aim, organizations are seeing a new breed of AI and machine learning-based tools develop. These tools can detect, alert, and sometimes even heal problems before the remote worker is aware of them. While companies have consolidated their tools and platforms, the hybrid approach to worker enablement will remain the best option for the foreseeable future.

Analytics will be used more frequently in digital transformation

In 2022, most of the focus will be on setting the groundwork for larger enterprise transformation programs. CIOs and their teams should be prepared to identify the most compelling business cases for leveraging data and analytics. If the company wants to achieve large-scale digital transformation rather than piecemeal initiatives based on a single-use case, it needs to take an integrated approach to data and analytics to get the most out of it.

User experience will push innovation within applications

“We often see a push for more open-ended modes within applications, but this does not equate to a good user experience for those of all data fluency levels. Instead of expanding an application to be solely geared towards DevOps or IT teams, we need to configure applications to have greater accessibility for all. In 2022, we will see better user design within dashboards that will allow for greater adoption with executives and managers to make well-informed business decisions backed by data”, says Charles Caldwell, VP of product management, Logi Analytics.
