Technology Trends for 2022
Technology Trends for 2022

And just like that, another year is coming to a close and it’s time to reflect on its successes – and what will trickle into the new year. Nutmeg Technologies has hand-picked four technology-related trends that we expect to see more of in the new year. Take a peek of what we believe will make or break companies in 2022.

Increased Need for Cybersecurity

An area that has evolved time and time again is cybersecurity. Why? Because fraudsters become smarter each year and are more committed to stealing your financial information. Sadly, this trend does not appear like it will slow down next year, but instead there will be an increase in hackers. Therefore, the need for a strong cybersecurity plan is heavily encouraged. AI in particular is believed to be the main source of these hacks, as digitally generated faces are becoming more realistic and able to break into facial recognition devices or add more personalized touches to phishing scams. The more proactive you are with your security plans, the better you will be able to protect your data from hackers.

Rise in Hybrid Workforce

Many of us have dabbled in the remote workspace at some point in time, and most likely have done so quite a bit over the past couple of years. Although remote work isn’t as enforced as it was in 2020, it still is expected to be a part of our lives in the future in some sort of capacity. Whether that means more employees are going to stay remote full time, or take on more of a hybrid role. Being able to prepare for this newly developed mindset is important to remain competitive with other businesses who are comfortable with the hybrid mentality. Just like you don’t want to lose customers to other businesses, you also don’t want to lose your employees by appearing inflexible. Make sure your technology is equipped for remote work as it is expected to play a major role in 2022.

More Automation in Work Tasks

If robots are able to perform certain types of surgeries, surely technology can also handle a few of the responsibilities you have around the office. Automation can drastically cut down the time spent on tasks and also help keep employees motivated to put more effort into their larger scale projects. Automation can also help businesses who have been affected by the labor shortages. By automating some of the tasks from the employees who are currently working at your company, it will give them the extra hand without needing an additional human to be hired. Learn which types of technology we recommend to simplify your workload.

Further Prioritization in Consumer Focused Technology

You may believe the products and technology you currently have in place are focused on the customer but chances are there may be some room for improvement. Products that are focused on bettering the customer’s experiences like virtual and augmented reality tools are expected to rise in need in the future. These sorts of products can make collecting information about your brand and making purchases simpler, and the more convenient your offerings are, the more likely they will be purchased.

We hope you have a wonderful year in 2022!
