Top 10 Trending Technologies to learn in 2020

Do you recall the good old days when biometric technologies were only a thing in “Mission Impossible”? Or the excitement you got when the first iPad was launched after a generation of iPhone 4? Fast-tracked 10 years later, the world is now full of iPhone 11 Pro with Face ID being the norm. This is one among the thousand pieces of evidence to prove how crazily fast technologies have evolved.

Change is the only constant. Therefore, it is crucial for any business to forecast and catch the head of the trend waves. Needless to say, Reactron Technologies has taken the initiative and reduced your research time by preparing the most-awaited list on the last day of the decade.

Here are the Top 10 Trending Technologies to learn in 2020:

10. 3D Printing

A much-favored alternative to bulky manufacturing machines, 3D Printing offers quick and smart manufacturing solutions for complex product parts, using less material than the traditional manufacturing methods. In the next decade, 3D Printing might even be the dominating approach for businesses in the field.

9. Intelligent Apps (I-Apps)

As the name suggests, Intelligent Apps, or I-Apps, are applications that learn from users’ interaction data and patterns to provide suggestions and predictions. With the foundation of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, I-Apps ease every day’s workload by helping users to answer frequently asked questions (FAQs), organizing emails, scheduling meetings, and many more. They come in shapes of ChatBots and Virtual Assistants that can help businesses like hotels and tour operators to enhance their customers’ experiences.

8. Internet of Things (IoT)

Having been coined in 1999, the term has never gone out of style. Internet of Things, or IoT in short, is the concept of connecting any devices that have a switch function to the Internet and to other connected devices. With IoT, the future of smart homes and smart cities seems much less far-fetching.

7. DevOps

Not necessarily a technology but a methodology, DevOps is the connecting bridge between software development and IT teams that creates a seamless automated process for deploying any software in a quick and reliable manner. Understanding the powerful impacts of DevOps on the quality of the product as well as the end-users’ experiences, Reactron Technologies has a team of experts in DevOps to work alongside your company.

6. 5G

As the world is moving faster than ever, a strong and reliable network is demanded to match the pace, hence the birth of 5G. The rise of this invention allows for faster streaming content and the possibility of driverless vehicles.

5. React Native

React Native is an open-source cross-platform framework developed by Facebook, having gained huge maturity and popularity in the past decade. React Native enables companies to cut costs, stay efficient across platforms, and future-proof their products. That is why Reactron Technologies and one of our esteemed partners have used the framework for an application.

4. Serverless

Serverless, aka serverless computing, is an execution model where the servers and infrastructures used to execute the code are abstracted away by the cloud provider. The consumer is only charged for the duration and amount of resources used to run the code. Serverless computing is famous for its value: “Focus on the business logic, not the infrastructure”.

3. AR/VR

  • Augmented reality (AR) is the technology that helps blend virtual elements, such as an object, sounds or sensory, to the real world. The famous examples of AR are Pokemon Go and Snapchat.
  • Virtual reality (VR) is the technology that creates a virtual, machine-generated and interactive world. Virtual reality can help users to conduct highly-skilled practices, such as operating complex machines, learning about spaces, and operating examinations on patients, since it can quickly create a simulated environment to perform hands-on practices.

2. Blockchain

Blockchain is a new model of distributed networks that allows sharing the same copy of data to anyone, which enhances the transparency and democracy in the control of data. Blockchain solutions are believed to be more secure, reliable and disaster-proof due to its decentralized nature. This technology can potentially be applied to many industries, including real estate, finance, and many more.

1. AI/ML

Artificial Intelligence/ Machine Learning is the art of applying mathematical algorithms and statistical data to make computers learn by themselves by recognizing patterns, rules, and features. This technology can provide a big boost to your current service by utilizing your existing data to further understand your customers/users.

So, what does it mean for you?

Disclaimer: You do not have to master every single item on this list to survive and surpass the year 2020, especially when you are a business-related firm. 

However, if standing out from the crowd and becoming a trend-setter are your new year’s resolutions, we recommend gaining knowledge in as many of these topics as possible. In fact, if you are unfamiliar with some of the technological areas mentioned above, feel free to contact Reactron Technologies, and we will figure things out together.

Last but not least, HAPPY NEW YEAR!
