Gartner’s Top 10 Technology Trends For 2020 That Will Shape The Future
The empowered edge, practical blockchain and human augmentation are just a few of the biggest trends in 2020 that will create the largest opportunities over the next decade, according to research firm Gartner.
The democratization of technology means providing people with easy access to technical or business expertise without extensive or costly training. For example, democratization would enable developers to generate data models without having the skills of a data scientist and instead relay on AI-driven development to generate code and automate testing.
There are four key aspects to this trend that are accelerating in 2020 and through 2023, says Gartner, which are application development, design, knowledge and data and analytics.
By 2024, low-code application development will be responsible for more than 65 percent of application development activity. Also by 2024, 75 percent of large enterprises will be using at least four low-code development tools for both IT application development and citizen development initiatives.
One are of potential concern with democratization will be dealing with shadow artificial intelligence (AI). This is where people without formal training exploit easy-to-use tools to develop their own AI-powered solutions and provide peer-to-peer support to others in similar efforts.
