Artificial Intelligence

AI is one of the most revolutionizing technologies of this era, and 2020 is going to Boom even more. But to build and deploy AI-based Solutions continues to be a costly affair on the part of most businesses. Now, we expect to see a bunch of different providers in the year 2020 who would tailor-made solutions for specialized tasks.

Now big brands like Google Apple and Microsoft are ahead of their game. At the Forefront of this particular initiative digging deep into the potential of this technology, they are experimenting and finding out AI-based solutions to stay ahead of their competitors.

Cyber Security

The widespread use of the IT ecosystem, cybersecurity remains one of the major concerns for most companies. The year 2020 is going to be a year to converge multiple nascent cybersecurity trends due to the automation of cybersecurity as well as the development of public IT infrastructure.

Various companies have increased the security budget year by year to thwart malicious threats as well as the response to the recent data privacy legislation. Top-notch companies such as IBM, Hacker one and Fire are making it to the top 150 companies for cybersecurity.

Hyper Automation

Hyper automation is nothing but an amalgamation of two super Technologies of this era, RPA and machine learning. Now Understanding the automation mechanisms and how its controlled and coordinated using machine learning will be a primary focus of this field.

In the year2020 hyper-automation is implied to have a significant macroeconomic implication on the market. Hence, top Gear companies need to gear up for this convergence in demographic shifts. For now, companies such as Wipro and Infosys are experimenting with this technology, but other companies are not very far behind.

Dev Ops

Dev Ops plays a vital aspect not just in software development, but also in operations management. Not only that Dev Ops has made its way into artificial intelligence through data Ops with increasing use of microservices. Devops continues to pave with its way into our big players like NASA Netflix Capgemini and Dell, which are a few of the existing Pioneers in this industry.

Internet of Things

IOT is one such technology making its way into top technology list every single year. Not just that by the year 2020. It estimated that around 75 billion connected devices are going to exist on the face of this globe. IOT is also Paving the way for Edge Computing for Enterprises to keep up with the technological Trends.

They have to build their infrastructure upon Edge base design patterns. Now, there are a few frontrunners in this particular Market. We have AWS, Cisco, Microsoft, Dell and HP, but there are other smaller businesses, which are quickly acquiring the IOT platform and aren’t too far behind.

3D Printing Technology

3D printing is one of those Technologies; You should look forward to in the upcoming years in the future. Now, it is said to completely change the face of the domain such as Healthcare manufacturing and construction with market size of 10 billion. It is expected to grow at a rate of 23.5 percent every year for the next five years, and big brands such as Bugatti, Adidas, Audi, and Porsche are already on their way to remodel a future using 3D printing.


DARQ is a future technology pattern consisting of other big Technologies. It considered being a catalyst for change in the post-Digital World. Now, as you might have noticed, DARQ is an acronym.

So D stands for distributed Ledger which first gained its momentum in the industry with the introduction of blockchain and Bitcoin. A stands for artificial intelligence, which is bringing about tremendous change in various domains. R as an extended reality including virtual reality and Q as in Quantum Computing which means you are trying to create IT Technology-based off on the principles of quantum theory.

Recently, Google has made a significant Breakthrough by attaining Quantum Supremacy with 53 qubits of quantum processors. It has successfully carried out a random circuit program a million times in 200 seconds, which otherwise would have taken ten thousand plus years by traditional Computing.

At this moment, 9 out of 10 businesses are experimenting with one or more DARQ technologies. At the same time, each technique is at a different level at the adoption curve. One thing is for sure: The first wave of DARQ Technologies is coming soon.

Big Data

Now, who doesn’t know about Big Data already? The word has been A buzz for quite a few years, with all these businesses moving beyond the traditional ways of data storage. And processing big data has made its way to the big games. Now with all these new technologies such as Data analytics automation augmented analytics and data as a service, big data is in here to change the game across Industries.

While we are on this subject, let’s talk a little bit about a subset called Dark data. When I say dark data, I mean all this data that is generated along with big data but is untapped. The potential Is unlimited, and by the year 2020, about 93% of all information is going to be categorized under this subset, now coming back to Big Data companies, which are investing in big data including Netflix Amazon Starbucks Spotify and Adobe.

5G Technology

5G represents the next generation of cellular networks and services. Now Switzerland is the current world leader in 5G Technology, closely followed by South Korea and the United States. A more significant role out anticipated by the year2020 with the global adoption of this technology.

It is expected to give a minimum of 20 Gbps downlink and 10 Gbps Uplink, which would make it 40 times faster than the current4G LTE technology opening doors for newer Services network operations and customer experiences on the part of Telecom operators companies. Slowly in the development and testing of 5G equipment are Samsung, Huawei, Intel, Ericsson, Nokia, Deloitte, and Qualcomm.

Cognitive Cloud Computing

The cognitive cloud is an extended ecosystem. It is due to this that we can deploy cognitive cloud computing applications and solutions to the masses using cloud computing. Not just that, it is one of the next big things in the IT industry. Also, it can converse in natural language and helps in decision-making by understanding the complexities of Big Data.

Cognitive Cloud computing expected to generate Rate a revenue of 13.8 billion US Dollars by the year 2020 alone. Hence, big companies such as IBM Microsoft Google and Cisco are already investing in this next Generation technology to keep up with the upcoming Market.

Here, I conclude my list of the top 10 trending Technologies for the year 2020. I hope you like the information. If you have any suggestions to improve our list Kindly, leave them in the comment section below. I will be glad to hear from you about that.
