If you are as geeky as us, you’ll celebrate every time something new happens in the technological world.
At Keytech, we’re constantly waiting with bated breath for new announcements to be made and the last year of digital transformation has captivated us.
Not only have we witnessed a new world form with the majority of workers needing high-tech access at home, but our reliance on the internet has doubled with the need to stay in contact with our loved ones through the internet.
As a result of the pandemic, technological trends are booming. Let’s talk about some of our favourites (or, at the very least, the most prominent ones that can’t be ignored).
Number 1: 5G
We’ve seen 3G. We’ve seen 4G. Now 5G is on the horizon.
In 2019 a new, highly advanced mobile broadband technology placed Huawei and Samsung at the forefront. 5G has the potential to be 10 times faster than it’s counterparts – meaning improvements in smartphones, cars, watches, and even fridges will be made over the next few years.
Number 2: Artificial Intelligence
Whether you see the “great robot takeover” as a positive or negative, there’s no doubt that AI and software are making hundreds of business owners’ lives significantly easier.
CRM systems, smart bookkeeping, and even drones that deliver pizza to your door… we’re seeing an ever-expanding increase in AI access and use (for thankfully COVID free interactions).
Number 3: The Internet of Things, Zoom & E-Working
The “IoT” is probably something you’ve seen on LinkedIn, or mentioned in a few technology articles. It refers to the billions of physical devices around the world that are connected to the internet.
Without this digital ecosystem, communications and businesses would have completely shut down across the country. Small companies who have been able to sell online might have died.
Number 4: Cyber Security
We have a reason to cheer… cyber security is on the rise!
Sure, this growth is motivated by a scary amount of cyber attacks; but all around the world businesses and people are taking note. In general, people are taking huge steps to protect their data, and that’s something Keytech is always screaming from the rooftops about!
Number 5: Cryptocurrency
By 2050, the use of Bitcoin is set to completely overtake the dollar. However, with just one coin pricing at $66,000… we don’t see how. Common commerce goods such as groceries, clothing, and leisure services are just too low-priced to make the trading of bitcoin entirely accessible.
If some of this sounds interesting but way over your head, and you need some IT or Telecoms advice, why not book a discovery call or ring 0113 531 5400 to see how we can unlock your company’s potential, together?
