List: Avoid becoming the next Blockbuster and stay on top of technology trends.
The rate of innovation in the tech industry is rapid and keeping up with the pace of change is difficult for even the most tech savvy of businesses.
While digital transformation is in full swing, identifying the next technology trend that will disrupt everything all over again is vital. If businesses don’t keep up with identifying the next big thing to hit then they could again be slow on the uptake and face losing out to those that are more swift adopters.
In short, you don’t want to end up as the next Blockbuster, it’s necessary to be constantly moving forward because technology certainly isn’t slowing.
To lend a helping hand CBR has provided a list of five technology trends that are shaping to be big news.
1. Serverless computing
At the AWS Summit in London, Amazon CTO Dr Werner Vogels talked at length about the value of serverless computing.
Serverless computing basically adds another layer of abstraction on top of cloud infrastructure so that the developer doesn’t need to worry about servers, including virtual ones.
Basically, it means that developers don’t need to worry about infrastructure because only code is being done, this is because the application is being stripped of their servers.
The idea is that developers just write code and someone like Amazon Web Services runs it, with the intended outcome of reducing developer workload and cost of running an application.
Currently there appears to be a trade-off with less control over how the code is run and the margin that is paid to the cloud provider.
However, with a bit more noise being made about it, businesses should question whether a container-based project is worth it or whether serverless might be what’s right.
