Technology Trends to Expect for 2022

Another year has passed, and still, the fear of COVID-19 is not going away. The detection of new variants is a concern, and it will probably boost the growth of digitalization and virtualization further. If you are a student or a professional who wants to cash in on this rising growth, you should read on. Here we have mentioned the top technology trends to expect for 2022.

Ø  Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning

The AI market is expected to be a $190 billion industry by 2025. You can get a job in development, testing, programming, support, and maintenance (among others). Machine learning is a subset of AI and is helping create jobs like data scientists, robot monitoring professionals, and content curators. Some designations you can aim for are AI Engineer, AI Research Scientist, Machine Learning Engineer, and AI Architect.

Ø  Robotic Process Automation

Abbreviated as RPA, this technology is also automating jobs and business processes. It offers many career opportunities like developer, project manager, analyst architect, and consultant. So, it’s a technology trend that you need to keep an eye on.

Ø  Cloud Computing

Cloud computing has also become a tech trend you can’t miss. Some major players in this technology are Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, and Google Cloud Platform. If you are interested in cloud computing (including edge and quantum computing), you can aim for jobs like Cloud Infrastructure Engineer, Cloud Reliability Engineer, DevOps Cloud Engineer, and Cloud Architect and Security Architect, among others.

Ø  AR, VR, and ER

Augmented reality, virtual reality, and extended reality are also the trends you need to consider. These technologies are a part of our lives and will continue to be crucial in 2022 as well as the projected growth of the AR and VR market is US$ 209 billion in the next year. You just need basic programming skills, and a forward-thinking mindset can help you land a great VR job.

Ø  Blockchain

Blockchain simply means data that you can add to. You cannot change it or take away from it. Hence, it offers security that is getting more popular with time. If you are interested in this technology, you can start by taking a job as a blockchain developer. You just need the experience of programming languages, relational and flat databases, the fundamentals of OOPS, web app development, data structures, and networking.

Ø  Internet of Things (IoT)

Internet of things is the future, and it has already enabled devices to connect and exchange data over the internet. From fitbits to preheating ovens remotely, this technology trend is already improving lives. According to estimates, by 2030, about 50 billion IoT devices will be used globally, and spending on IoT will reach 1.1 trillion US$ in 2022.

Ø  Two Other Technologies

Two other technologies worth mentioning are 5G and cyber security. 5G networks are expected to cover 40% of the world by 2024. Similarly, 60% of organizations are expected to use cybersecurity risk as a primary determinant in conducting third-party business engagements and transactions by 2025. Read about 5G here.
