  • Voice search

  • Web design

  • User experience

  • Chatbots

  • Predictive analysis

2. Cloud Computing

Cloud computing is the delivery of computing services over the internet. These services may include databases, networking, storage, servers, software, intelligence, analytics, etc to offer flexible resources, faster innovation that will help you scale.

Benefits of cloud computing:

  • Eliminates the capital expense of buying software, hardware and setting up and running on-site data centers.

  • Most cloud computing services are provided on demand within a few mouse clicks. This takes off pressure of planning and gives businesses flexibility.

  • Cloud computing removes the need of many unnecessary tasks and instead helps you become more productive.

  • Most cloud computing services are regularly updated with fast computing hardware which offers benefits over single data center.

3. Big Data

Big Data refers to large volume of both structures as well as unstructured data that can be overwhelming for day-to-day business. Big data may be analyzed for insights to improve business strategies and decisions. Big data can be combined with high powered analytics to:

  • Determine any issues, cause of failure and defects in real time

  • Recalculate risk portfolios

  • Generate coupons for sales depending on customer buying habits

  • Detect anything obnoxious before it affects the organization

4. Internet of things (IoT)

IoT is a full- fledged technology in itself. It is a computing concept that enables physical objects to connect to the internet and at the same time identify themselves to other devices.

IoT is a huge network of connected devices that gather and share data about how they are used and operated. IoT includes your mobile phone, washing machine, refrigerator, etc.

A few things that IoT can help achieve are:

  • Optimize traffic system

  • Proper energy use

  • Efficient waste management

5. Augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR)

VR and AR are twin technologies that enable you to experience things in virtual. These technologies are used by businesses regardless of being big or small to experience things that are extremely close to real.

VR helps put your presence everywhere except the room you are actually in through goggles or closed visors. On the other hand, Augmented reality adds something to the current state without transporting you anywhere.


  • Medical students can use AR technology to perform a surgery under controlled environment

  • VR technology can be used to enhance gaming experience and improve interactive marketing

6. Blockchain

Blockchain is the technology that powers the cryptocurrency- bitcoins. It is an ingenious invention that has the potential to revolutionize everything- from healthcare to real estate. Blockchain has the mechanism to bring everyone to accountability.

Advantages of blockchain technology are;

  • Highly transparent

  • Improved security

  • Easily traceable

  • Highly efficient and fast

  • Cost effective

Though there is a clear down surge in the usability of the market for Bitcoin, Crypto technology is here to stay. There are so many companies innovating to use it in Logistics, Medical, Infrastructure and so much more.

7. Angular and React

Angular and React are Javascript based frameworks that can be used to create excellent web applications. While React is an open-source and Javascript from Facebook, Angular is an open-source front- end development framework by Google. React is widely used for developing reusable HTML required for front-end development. Angular on the other hand is used for creating dynamic websites and web apps.

React technology is used by popular brands such as WhatsApp, Instagram, Facebook , Uber , Dropbox, Netflix and Airbnb. Angular is used by brands such as Sony, Nike,Google, Forbes, General Motors, HBO and Upwork.

Benefits of React technology

  • Enhanced user experience

  • Saves time

  • Quick development

  • Easy testing

  • One directional data binding

Benefits of Angular technology

  • Improved performance

  • Better coding

  • Improved error handling ability

  • Seamless updates

  • Material design like interface

8. DevOps

Although it is not a technology, DevOps is still important. It ensures that both the operations and development go hand in hand. It can be thought of as an infinite loop that integrates the team of developers and operation.

DevOps enables:

  • Automate infrastructure

  • Workflows

  • Measuring of application performance continuously

9. Intelligent Apps (I-Apps)

I-Apps are basically short software written for mobile devices based on machine learning and artificial intelligence. Its main objective is to simplify everyday tasks and make life easy. The main tasks of I-Apps include scheduling meetings, logging interactions, organizing and prioritizing emails, content, etc.

Chatbots and virtual assistants are popular examples of I-Apps.

10. Robotic Process Automation (RPA)

Robotic Process Automation technology allows you to automate routine and repetitive tasks. It allows employees to use a robot or a computer software to capture applications for manipulating data, triggering responses,processing transactions and communication with other devices.

It is useful in places that use large labor or where people perform high-volume work. RPA will help boost their capabilities and save time and money.

Trend of bots and machine learning is set to be highly popular in 2019 as it is believed that RPA is an invaluable skill to be included in a company.

In conclusion, it can be said that technology is ever evolving but if you want to be on top of the game then a sound knowledge of the latest technology is a must. You may hire professionals or outsource the work to an agency having the relevant knowledge, be ready for changes coming in technology!
