2015 was a year, where we see the transformation of tech world to encompass “Internet of things”, accommodating connectivity across each and every devices which we are using daily. In such a point of view, cyber security was a real concern. Anyway, I am not going to dig in the past, only predicting some probable tech trends that can happen in 2016

Future Tech Trends of 2016

Here’s the list

  • Smartphones can become the central node to every activity.
  • Drones are supposed to use more in the public service.
  • Shift of more business processes towards VR and AR side.
  • Change in data protection laws.
  • A good place for robotics and AI for performing repetitive tasks.

  • Welcoming a hyper-connected world.
  • Top 10 tech trends affecting business in 2016.
  • More emphasis towards cyber security.

Some more illustrations are needed for certain items in this list. The main thing, off course, is regarding cyber security. Several security experts form the industry are predicting, there can be a huge increase in ransomware attacks. Criminals are supposed to simply hack into your system to encrypt your data. They may demand ransom for decrypting it.

In the opinion of Hitesh Sheth, CEO of Vectra Networks, such a threat can be take place on a larger platform, concentrating more on enterprise level. Critical company assets can be held as hostages in return of unimaginable ransom. Growth of mobile payments systems are also supposed to create new fields for these hackers. Tom Patterson of Unisys warns about the unauthorized use of government-owned spy work capabilities for their own purposes against rogue intelligence officers.

Well. Let’s deviate from Cyber security for a while. Michele Franci, CEO of Inmarsat, foresees a much more different machine-to-machine tech material handling. Sorry, it is quite different from material handling that you are aware of. It is actually a different IoT spanning industrial applications like utility infrastructure monitoring and also various sectors like agriculture, health, meteorology, and off course, environmental research.

According to Tudor Aw, head of technology sector at consultancy KPMG, Internet of things may finally supposed to achieve momentum in 2016. It can vary from smart watches and other wearables that can be used for health and personal fitness.

Valerie Riffaud-Cangelosi, of Epson sees a bright future on AR over wearables. Workforce of humans- It is the term used by him that can be the outlook once we use the Augmented Reality over wearables to expand its potentials.
