Last October, I shared Gartner’s Top 10 Strategic Tech Trends for 2023. At the time, we faced supply chain issues, a developing war in Ukraine, difficulty in finding talent, and an evolving financial crisis. The article focused on three themes: optimize, scale and pioneer. Based on these themes, Gartner predicted technology trends that could “help enterprises see through the current economic and market challenges.” They projected that by adopting some of the technologies listed below, companies would have the ability to reduce downtime by up to 80 percent, resulting in increased revenue.
Top 10 trends predicted for 2023:
- Scale industry cloud platforms vertically
- Reduce friction between development teams and complex infrastructure
- Scale everywhere with Wi-Fi
- Create digital immune systems
- Applied observability for better operations
- Trust, risk and security management for AI
- Start creating superapps
- Adaptive AI to respond to organizational change
- Metaverse will combine different technologies
- Technology will have a role in sustainability
So, were their predictions on target?
Are 60 percent of enterprises on track to be using five or more wireless technologies by 2025? Has AI become more trustworthy and more apt to make it into a production environment? What strides have we made in energy reduction for IT services?
I’m curious to learn if you’ve implemented any of the trends noted and get your sense of where we’re at and where we’re headed. Share your thoughts in the comments below!
