Today’s world is witnessing an interesting breakthrough as key technologies are finding their way into real, useful applications. As smartphones remain to be the central tech device, wearables and other devices are marking its presence into everyday lives, changing the way we work and live. Innovations that remained buzzwords until just a few years ago are bringing fascinating developments into the endless list of industries, which includes healthcare, aviation, drug development, manufacturing and even the customer care landscape.
The healthcare ecosystem is transforming at an unprecedented rate with technologies such as wearable devices and smartwatches capturing data to foresee and interpret health issues in people even before they display any symptoms. Technologies like artificial intelligence, machine learning, RPA, virtual reality and augmented reality are replacing the redundant tasks, thereby automating business processes.
Both VR and AR bring enormous potential into the education, entertainment, training and marketing sectors due to their engaging technologies that enhance and bring out deeper experiences. On the other hand, cloud computing is turning into a mainstream technology with major players like Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud, dominating the market. As more businesses migrate to cloud solutions, the adoption and deployment of cloud computing is growing, taking it off from the list of emerging technologies. With the Internet of Things devices increasing in use across industries, the global edge computing market is expected to grow manifold and create innumerable opportunities across the globe.
