Here are five tech trends you should know about in 2020.

Tech Needs for 2020

Technology is evolving faster than ever. Your company must keep up with major tech trends to remain competitive. Implementing one of the following  can help your business improve more efficiently operate and improve the bottom line.

 

5G Data Networks

The fifth generation of mobile internet connectivity can provide your company significantly fast download and upload speeds and stable connections. Data plans are likely to be more affordable and provide improved coverage. Increased bandwidth will allow machines, robots, and other technology to collect and transfer more data than before, advancing the Internet of Things and smart machinery.

 

Extended Reality

New and emerging technologies will be used to create more immersive digital experiences. Virtual reality lets you enter a computer-generated world using headsets that blend out of the real world. Augmented reality uses smartphone screens or displays to overlay digital objects onto the real world. Mixed reality lets users interact with digital objects placed in the real world. Your company may use virtual and augmented reality for training, simulation, or interacting with customers.

 

AI-as-a-Service

Artificial intelligence (AI) can improve your customer experience and streamline business operations. Due to the significant costs of implementing AI, many applications will be done through providers of as-a-service platforms. Your company can supply its data and pay for the algorithms or compute resources as you use them. Additional providers are likely to begin offering more tailored applications and services for specific or specialized tasks.

 

Blockchain Technology

Blockchain is a secured, encrypted, decentralized digital ledger used to record transactions. You can use the technology to easily access supplier records, information from government agencies and insurers, and prior verifications filled out by trusted parties. You also can use blockchain for tracking, agreements, and secure payments. Since every supplier and producer can view the chain of ownership on the same ledger, supply chain disputes should be easily resolved.

 

Computer Vision

Computer systems will be able to identify items, places, objects, or people from visual images collected by a camera or sensor. Production lines can use tools and technology equipped with computer vision to watch for defective products or equipment failures. Security cameras at your company can alert you to anything out of the ordinary happening.
