On the technology-front, 2017 has been quite a milestone when compared to other years. Hopes are much higher for 2018. Here are 4 big tech trends we can see in 2018:
· Blockchain Technology will leave a mark in various industries
It won’t be wrong to say that 2017 was all about Bitcoin. While many are skeptical to the sustainability of this cryptocurrency, it also brought the blockchain technology in the mainstream. This year, we will see this revolutionizing technology leaving a deep mark in various sectors; in finance, in particular.
· AR will enter mainstream
Augmented Reality made a big mark in 2017, thanks to Pokémon Go. This new year, developers will employ this technology more in their products to blur the line between reality and augmentation.
· Bots… Bots… Bots everywhere
Digital marketing is already relying more on AI powered bots. In 2018, we’re going to see more of this. Be it on phones via apps or social media or games, we are going to engage with bots more than ever.
· Continuing cloud adoption
While big companies have already moved to the cloud, SMEs are still to get there. In 2018, we will see many small and medium-size brands transferring their data to cloud. This, in turn, will increase the demand for third-party cloud solution providers.
