Technology is constantly evolving and nothing in the IT space is certain; however, each new year brings new IT trends that your organization should be aware of. According to Gartner’s latest forecast, worldwide IT spending is projected to total $4.5 trillion in 2022, an increase of 5.5% from 2021, and the largest year-over-year jump in more than 10 years. Throughout the last two years market challenges and the pandemic initiated a shift in the workforce, causing current technology trends to shift drastically. Leveraging these new top IT trends along with current business technologies will not only improve business function, but also allow your organization to thrive in the constantly changing technological landscape. Below we will discuss three top 2022 IT trends we predict will emerge in the new year:
1. Leveraging Current Business Technologies
How Can You Do More with the Same?
At the start of the pandemic, countless organizations implemented new technologies to better support their business. However, in the new year many organizations are looking to further this by leveraging their current business technologies to support improved cybersecurity, greater automations, and deeper integration with third-party systems. The simplest way to do this is to holistically look at your organization’s current IT ecosystem and expand upon that. Leveraging current systems you have in place can easily help your organization reach your business goals, without having to change your entire technology system.
2. Maximizing your Spend with Data and Analytics
Maximizing the Dollar by Watching Spend and Allotment
With new 2022 IT trends popping up so frequently, it can sometimes be difficult to limit your IT spend. In order to avoid expensive IT updates, it is important to take advantage of your business data and analytics. Assessing your data and analytics can help maximize your IT spend and usage allotment. This goes hand in hand with optimizing your current business technologies and can help your organization reduce new IT expenditures. The focus remains on understanding your current organization and how access to greater data can streamline your overall workflows and improve business function.
3. Increase in Cloud Adoption
A Greater Need for Accessibility & Flexibility
The cloud has been on the rise recently, with 81% of all enterprises reporting that they have either a cloud strategy already laid out or in the works. (Techjury) SaaS applications, cloud hosting, and cloud access is at top of mind to better support the new way of work for right now, but also as the economic state evolves. Cloud allows for better business continuity, and with the right cloud solutions in place, it also provides better security and integrations.
The pandemic has shifted the workforce over the last few years, and because of this, IT trends have shifted as well. With so many new 2022 IT trends surfacing every year, it can be difficult to know where to begin while still limiting your IT spend.
