In the year 2020, humanity got to experience a pandemic that hasn’t been experienced by anyone. It is not easy for a person to stay at home all day and fear to keep oneself and the family safe. Covid-19 impacted all the countries globally, and everyone is feeling the need to get to normal conditions. So the thing that is proving to be the most useful is advanced technology.
Everything today is related to technology, and with that, there is a lot of help to people who have been losing hope. Even though in the present year of 2021, the vaccine is here, and it is giving us all a stroke of hope that everything will be alright very soon.
In the previous year, there was a lot of development in software, and with that, there is a lot of advancement in healthcare facilities too. With the help of all these developments, people can get advanced technology at their convenience and get every possible service.
Let’s talk about the predictions that are made in software development for the year 2021:
Centralized infrastructure with the help of cloud software:
The entire world is going to switch their business to cloud in the future. It doesn’t matter if the company is dealing in the private or government sector; using the services of the cloud is very vital. There are many uses of using the cloud. People keep their data on it, and it is safe to keep their stuff on it. The main reason behind this is there can be any catastrophe in the world, and it can ruin everything, but the data on the cloud will stay intact.
Data has to be safe because it is the base of the industry, and for its safekeeping, it is crucial. There are two ways it can help companies,
- In upsizing the company: It is not possible for a company to keep all the company records in hard copies and save them from ruin. There are a lot of people who don’t use the software, and it takes a lot of time for them to take the information out of the copies, and frankly, that is irritating for the customers.
- In downsizing the company: According to the previous point, the use of software was for saving time. But at this point, the company needs to save the money they give to human resources. Due to Coronavirus and this pandemic, a lot of companies were on the verge of closing because they don’t have enough amount of money to provide their staff. So by using cloud services and downsizing the company, they are surviving.
Exponential growth in edge computing with decentralized infrastructure:
Now, the public cloud is very easy to use and gives a lot of advantages, and it is a centralized structure. This edge computing will provide the stuff that they need at the place where it is needed. There is no need to have a bigger and extended bandwidth, and the response will be faster too. They are providing the device close to the users with the help of closed networks, which is going to help in future 5G mobile networks.
Even though this one is a traditional method and approach, it is still very useful and responsive. Modern edge computing is based on visualizing methods, making it easy to provide mobile applications.
Multi-cloud seems like the future:
These days, it is sure that AWS (Amazon Web Service) is leading in the services, providing the best services. But the future holds with the multi-cloud. The strategy is getting momentum in the year 2021, and it is for sure. A lot of companies are moving to this one and are seeing potential because of the perks.
Here are the benefits of multi-cloud:
- As the market is growing, there will be competitive pricing. People will eventually get the best out of the affordable options with this.
- Adopting this infrastructure will get agility into the system, which will lead to effective and efficient working.
- It offers redundant backup and resilience so that there will be no loss of the data, and business will go smoothly.
- Strongest security is what these businesses need. There are many chances of malicious activities, but with the help of multi-cloud, it is possible.
There are many more advanced features, which is why people are sure that this specific infrastructure holds the future.
Containerization, Kubernetes is going to make a high rise:
Whether it is cloud, multi-cloud, or edge computing, the core technology and the leading one will be containerization. There are two main softwares when this comes up, and they are Kubernetes and Docker. The prediction is that Kubernetes will be the one leading the technical ways, and the other one will slip away eventually.
Every major service provider that is providing public cloud services is advising and suggesting Kubernetes services. No matter the organization or services, they will migrate or switch to this one soon enough.
Quantum computing will get momentum:
When it comes to computing, quantum computing is the one leading in people’s hearts. It will not only make a positive impact on the digital computer but in every sector. Even if there will be predictions for the next ten years, it is sure that quantum computing is going to be on the number one of that list. Even the scientists are sure that this will be able to beat the supercomputer in any particular task they assign.
Artificial intelligence will be for all:
AI made a lot of breakthroughs in the year 2020. It was not just in software development; people have seen its impact on health care too. There are many people who are relying on this and will keep on relying on it because it is the one that made 2020 sufferable.
At last, many software trends are going to show up in the year 2021. People rely on digital technology because it provides the best solutions that are safe to use.
