Top 10 Digital Transformation Trends for 2020


2020 has welcomed some of the most unpredictable digital trends that have shaken companies and organizations. While the talk about digital trends is an ever ongoing one, here are some cross-device compatible SaaS solutions for 2020.

  1. 5g

2020 is the year if 5g, and we have already seen some big names in the telecommunication industry such as Huawei, Samsung, and Nokia, making sure 2020 lives up to the expectations. Most of the world’s best android devices have already released gadgets that are 5g enabled. 5g has hit the ground and running in 2020, and we only expect to see more of it as the year continues. 5g enables faster broadband speeds and ensures mobile networks are more reliable. The best part is the value of the 5g network will not be limited to mobile devices only. The network also accelerates smart living advancements, such as smart homes, smart cities, smart vehicles, and intelligent manufacturing. 5g technology is an evolution that will, without a doubt, define 2020.

  1. Faster Wi-Fi

WIFI 6 and 5g are both working hand in hand to bring faster processing for faster lives. There are not many Wi-Fi 6 enabled devices in the market now, but as 2020 progresses, we see more and more companies move towards this faster technology. The number of connected devices at any one time will grow with Wi-Fi 6, as well as the quality and efficiency of the network.

  1. Conversational AI

While AI like Siri and Google assistant have served their time, they are not the best. It’s still almost impossible to come up with a voice-over-text message using such AI. We expect to see conversational AI in the remaining part of 2020 with platforms such as Microsoft conversational ai working day and night to make this a success. 2020 will lay a foundation for conversational ai, but we expect to see better results and solidify the technology in the coming year.

  1. Driverless cars and drones

We have had the same conversation surrounding driverless cars for so many years, but 2020 is finally the year we see the first results. With edge computing rowing and 5g technology finally in action, nothing is holding us back anymore. We already have even companies like BMW and Volvo partnering, and we expect nothing but the best.

  1. Block chain

Block chain was a hype in 2019, but in 2020 it will move beyond crypto. Block chain is a decentralized network that’s used in recording transactions. It comes with benefits such as transparency, immutability, and decentralization. Block chain has been listed as one of the top ten strategic technology trends of 2020 because it can provide trust and transparency while enabling the exchange of value across organizations and businesses. Block chain will move beyond crypto to intellectual property, food safety, and real estate management, among other uses. 2020 has shown promise in reinventing the applications of block chain and showing us the true rise of block chain.

  1. ACPS to transform the computer market

Most people are on their pcs all day. We, therefore, need computers that can run all day to meet the consumers’ demand. 2020 will see the expansion of ACPS embedded with 5g and LTE technologies, making them more efficient. ACPS has a near-full day battery life. Some may even be designed to go for more than a day.

  1. Low code development

2020 has ensured that coding and development are no longer left to the tech-savvy people only. Low development code development ensures that companies have a faster and simpler way to come up with applications. Low code has made it possible for users with no programming or coding language to create applications.

  1. Real-time analytics

Analytics has been dominant in 2020. With the realization that real-time analytics is the future of data, more and more companies have taken to technology. Real-time analytics also provides a viable means of understanding customers deeper and better. It also helps businesses to make more conscious decisions that lead to better profits, growth, and customer satisfaction.

  1. Support vector machines

These are modern machine learning algorithms used for classification or regression problems. These are problems that take forever for an average person to complete. Support vector machines are a major digital transformation intended to make work easier, faster, and more accurate. Other applications of SVM include face detection, handwriting recognition, and classification of images.

  1. Digital privacy

As we see more digital trends in 2020, we cannot leave behind digital privacy. Thanks to the previous failures in cyber security, EU general data protection regulation is designed to ensure digital privacy is upheld. Many companies have adopted, and others are still adopting new digital privacy regulations to ensure their users’ digital privacy.
