“Hybrid work is here to stay, and a major 2022 tech trend will be equalising the work experience for employees who work from home. ”
At the Giants, we are always on the lookout for the next big thing in tech. After all, everything we do is centred around tech! So it is only natural we started the year thinking about what 2022 holds.
Here are three trends in technology we believe you should look out for in 2022.
1. Automation Related Purchases
In 2022, global CIOs will focus on implementing organisation-wide automation and turn to single-technological solutions to drive these initiatives. While several technologies have promised to leverage the power of automation, Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is expected to continue to grow sharply. The RPA market surpassed $2 Billion in 2021 and is estimated to grow to $3.17 billion in 2022, with a 53% increase.
A new layer of RPA will come in virtual or digital assistants that drive efficiency and free workers from repetitive, monotonous tasks.
For instance, instead of taking the time to transfer data from one system to another, you can ask a robot to do it for you!
2. Cloud Nativity
As developments in cloud services continue, organisations are turning to the cloud for even more of their IT and other needs in 2022. According to a McKinsey report, 70% of companies will be using hybrid-cloud or multi-cloud platforms by 2022 as part of a distributed IT infrastructure.
In 2022 the cloud goes vertical. What does this mean?
It simply means due to the demand and benefits of cloud computing; vendors will begin developing more industry-specific solutions, which will allow organisations to migrate EVEN MORE of their work processes to the cloud.
3. Hybrid Work Models
Hybrid work is here to stay, and a major 2022 tech trend will be equalising the work experience for employees who work from home.
Salary.com’s Remote Work & Compensation Pulse Survey of over 500 employees and employers showed that a slight majority of employers (51%) supported the hybrid work model. Wider adoption of hybrid work reflects a recognition by organisations that productivity patterns should dictate how we work.
Bring on 2022!
We can’t wait to see what’s coming in 2022! Working with amazing tech-powered brands during a pandemic has shown us how technology can make it much easier for organisations to adapt to changing circumstances in the post-pandemic world.
