Top 10 Technology Trends of 2023 According to Gartner
The American research firm Gartner has just published its “Top Strategic Technology Trends 2023” which highlights 10 promising technological trends for the year 2023.
Around these 10 developments, Gartner highlights four priorities that companies will have to meet:
- Optimization of resilience, operations and trust,
- vertical scalability solutions,
- customer engagement,
- the search for sustainable technological solutions.
1. The Digital Immune System
The digital immune system includes several software engineering strategies to improve customer experience, mitigate risk, and increase system resilience. According to Gartner, companies would benefit from investing in the implementation of automated tests, resolution of incidents and observability to increase the stability of their systems.
2. Applied observability
With the help of Artificial Intelligence, observability makes it possible to analyze and make recommendations based on data emitted by a structure. Applied observability would therefore enable faster decision-making and optimized business operations.
“[…] When strategically planned and successfully executed, applied observability is the most powerful source of data-driven decision-making”, says Frances Karamouzis, vice president at Gartner.
3. AI TRiSM: AI trust, risk and security management
In order for companies to better manage the risks associated with Artificial Intelligence, AI TRiSM (AI Trust, Risk, Security Management) makes it possible to secure and make artificial intelligence more transparent. Reliability, robustness, trust, fairness… AI TRiSM combines several methods to explain results from AI, control safety and ethical issues or deploy new models.
4. Industry Cloud Computing Platforms
Industry cloud platforms enable a combination of services: IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service), PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) and SaaS (Software-as-a-Service). They will equip companies with a set of industry-specific capabilities to better adapt to disruption flows in their sector. According to Gartner, the use of these platforms will accelerate.
5. Platform engineering
Platform Engineering enables companies to leverage self-service developer platforms for software delivery and lifecycle management. The goal is to facilitate their use by developers and end users.
6. The value of the wireless network
4G networks, 5G, WI-FI 5, 6, 7… Gartner foresees the use of different wireless solutions to manage several environments at the same time. According to the study, businesses will use a variety of wireless networks, ultimately creating new information and data.
7. The growth of superapps
Whether web or mobile, a superapp integrates several services and will be increasingly adopted by companies in the years to come. The superapp combines the functionality of an application, an ecosystem and a platform in a single application. For Frances Karamouzis, the essence of a superapp is that it can consolidate and replace several applications for use by customers or employees.
8. Adaptive Artificial Intelligence
Using new data provided in real time and adjusted goals, adaptive AI systems can learn from their intelligence models in a runtime environment and thus quickly adapt to everyday changes and unexpected events.
9. The Metaverse
Defined by Gartner as a shared virtual collective space in 3D where virtual augmented physical and digital reality converge, the metaverse could evolve towards more physical activities in the virtual world or further transform the real world.
10. Sustainable Technology
Sustainable technology solutions increase the efficiency of companies thanks to certain processes such as analysis, traceability or AI. These solutions enable them in particular to achieve their objectives in terms of sustainable development.
