This article discussed the future of computing. Some of the major trends and challenges facing the industry are outlined. However, the big picture isn’t as black and white as it is often made out to be. While there are a number of positive developments happening in the industry at any given time, we need to keep an open mind and continue being optimistic about the long-term.
Let’s take a look at some rather negative developments, how they can help drive innovation in our industry and what we can do about it. The Biggest 24/7 Smartphone Apps Development Challenge of 2018 Empowering Users with Artificial Intelligence (AI) is only the beginning. Organizations Must Work Together to Drive Digital transformation — Even if that means working together on a project together with other organizations or vendors.
The Rise of Contract Manufacturing
Many companies are exploring how they can automate processes such as manufacturing, serving customers, and managing their supply chain. Currently, there are a number of industries looking to automate processes, including but not limited to healthcare, financial services, manufacturing, and government. The trend towards increasingly automation is not just technological advancements, but is also related to an increasing demand for digital transformation.
Automation is Now a Standard
80% of all new software is automated in some way, such as by an automated teller machine (ATM), computer system, or manual machine. Automation has become a standard in the industry, largely due to the rise of cloud computing. With more than 70% of all IT assets being located in an organization’s data center, automation at the data center is critical to digital transformation.
How to Manage Digital Waste in Your Organization
One of the most significant trends impacting the industry is the growth of contract manufacturing. As the largest outsourcing market in the United States, and a major regional competitor to services, automation is a constant theme in both industries. Automation also figures prominently in the landscape of Cloud Computing as well. While on one side we have AI, on the other we have Cloud, and especially natural language processing.
As we begin to understand how AI can be used to turn data into information, and how Cloud can enable data to flow through without an organization’s knowledge being stored in a data center or on a server, it is important to understand where digital transformation takes place in our organizations. Digital transformation is the process of designing and implementing new digital assets and processes, such as websites, apps, or solutions, as well as mobile apps. New digital assets also have to be created and maintained. Digital transformation can take many forms, such as AI and Cloud, but it is a frequent theme in the organization’s digital transformation efforts.
The future of computing is very exciting and anything but predictable. With so many exciting developments happening in the industry at any given moment, it’s easy to forget that there are still some significant challenges to be overcome. With so much potential to disrupt an industry that has been in business for decades, it’s important to remember that the industry will be with us for a long time. It’s just that we need to be careful not to miss the boat on the incoming wave.
