1. Hyperautomation:

Hyperautomation is a top strategic technology trend for 2022. It suggests a faster path to identifying, vetting and automating processes across the enterprise. Hyper automation is the process of automating operations. By using sophisticated technology. While digital process automation and intelligent process automation are other terms. That are used for this technology. Companies can lower employee manual labor and enhance productivity by automating time-consuming practices. Hyper automation allows companies to integrate digital technology into their processes.  It is one of the best AI trends.

2. Generative Artificial Intelligence (AI):

Generative AI is one of the most powerful technology in the market. It can be used for creating software code, targeted marketing, and facilitating drug development. But on another side, it can also misused for scams, fraud, political disinformation, forgery, and many more things. By 2025, Gartner expects generative AI will account for 10% of all data produced, up from less than 1% today.

3. Data Fabric:

The number of data and application silos has increased in the last decade, while the number of skilled personnel in data and analytics teams has either stayed constant or even fallen.

Data fabric is flexible, resilient integration of data across platforms and business users. It has emerged to simplify an organization’s data integration infrastructure.

Data fabric’s real value is its potential to dynamically refine data usage with its inbuilt analytics, cutting data management efforts by up to 70% and accelerating time to value.

4. AI Engineering:

The demand for AI engineers will increase. Groombridge acclaimed that AI engineering acquisition should lead to three times more value for AI efforts.

5. Autonomic Systems:

Gartner says Autonomic systems that can modify their own algorithms without an external software update will let businesses rapidly adapt to new conditions in the field. While this trend anticipates greater levels of self-management of software.

The top strategic technology trends will boost digital capabilities and drive growth to the businesses. Surely, these trends will solve common business challenges for CIOs and technology executives to help provide more insightful data, better security, and analytics, and even create new innovations.
