Top IT Trends You Should Watch For In 2022
Over the last few decades, technology, and in particular information technology has been a major driving force in business transformation such as in the recent case of hybrid IT workspaces. This trend doesn’t show any signs of slowing down.

In the present scenario, your business IT must enable you to overcome three recent pandemic-related issues.
Supply chain disruptions
In 2021, supply chain interruptions cost businesses throughout the world an average of $184 million.2
We have likely all seen and felt the effects of this to some extent in our personal and professional lives.
The great resignation
In September 2021, 4.4 million people resigned from their jobs in the United States alone, setting a new record.3
Numerous factors such as changing priorities after a long pandemic and options like hybrid IT workspaces increasing the availability of remote work has so many re-thinking their living and working situations.

Top 4 tech trend predictions for 2022 5
1. Third-party risks will increase
In 2022, third parties will be involved in 60% of security incidents. This means that firms that fail to invest in the risk management trifecta of people, processes and technology may face cyberattacks.
Proactive businesses will include risk assessment, supply chain mapping, real-time risk intelligence and business continuity management (Managed Cloud Services) in their IT stack – rather than a single application like Excel.
Third-party risks are typically harder to detect prior to a cyber security incident as they operate outside of the systems and monitoring in place to protect your company.
It will be more important than ever to be sure of the vendors and partners you work with and their cyber security to make sure that only approved users have access to your network and systems.
2. One-third of companies will fail at implementing “work from anywhere”
To empower remote workers successfully and securely in a fully remote or hybrid IT workspaces, setup organizations need to deliver:
- A precisely designed digital workplace that allows for seamless working from anywhere
- A leadership team capable of leading a virtual team
- An organization with high levels of digital literacy across all departments
- A thorough mastery of work-from-anywhere concepts
However, a third of the companies still lag in these areas.
Falling behind in this may open the door to direct and obvious threats such as cyber-attacks on unsecured networks, and less obvious issues such as potential competitors having more attractive hiring policies if you are hiring from the same pool.
3. Cloud-native takes center stage in enterprise cloud
Cloud customers will change their business strategy to be completely cloud-native rather than using the cloud for only a portion of their portfolio.
Also, cloud-native adoption is predicted to reach 50% of enterprise organizations by 2022, spanning all major technology domains such as big data, artificial intelligence, and the Internet of Things (IoT).
Taking advantage of the secure cloud services boom can come with big benefits like quickly scaling computing power up or down to meet demand and only paying for what you need, and eliminating hardware upkeep and maintenance costs.
4. Tech execs leap from digital to human-centered technology transformations
In 2022, technology executives will concentrate on fixing long-term problems.
The best will embrace a customer-centric approach to technology, allowing their organization to quickly reconfigure business structures and capabilities to meet future customer and employee needs with adaptability, innovation, and resilience.
