We all know how it goes in the tech industry, there’s new and exciting stuff happening all the time. It can be hard to wade through the details especially when information changes so quickly. Lucky for you, we’re here with an inside look into what’s worth paying attention to in 2022.
It’s likely you’ve heard of, and have even begun utilizing, all or some of the three biggest trends for 2022. But, as the work-from-anywhere mindset continues to evolve, companies striving for even more connectivity, collaboration and productivity should give these emerging technologies closer consideration.
At a speed 100 times faster than its predecessor, 5G has many obvious benefits like quicker response times and easier data transfers.
Did you know there are additional advantages that will flow from wider adoption over the coming year? For example, the ability to bring your own device (BYOD) anywhere and stay connected with reduced buffering and minimal lag. Additionally, the ability to collaborate between organizations, regardless of location, will naturally increase as 5G gains further reach.
Smart objects bring important functionality to organizations via the Internet of Things (IoT) by collecting and transferring information. However, with more data being shared across more devices, IoT benefits also carry more risks.
Enter the growing requirement for cybersecurity. Both wireless IoT networks as well as the physical devices that connect to them must be properly secured to protect against data leaks and system breaches. Monitoring, oversight and analysis of IoT network access should be a top priority for management teams in 2022. If you don’t already have a cybersecurity plan in place – get one ASAP!
One way Immedia can help is by creating a separate AV network to isolate devices from your primary network. Not sure if that’s something you need to improve your company’s security? Give us a call, and we’ll schedule a consult to assess your current system.
In the next year, investments in cloud computing are expected to grow nearly 22%. That’s the largest year-over-year rise yet.
To allow for this growth, multi-cloud (public environments) and hybrid cloud (both private and public environments) are experiencing wider adoption. Streamlining how you manage cloud structures amid this sizeable increase will be an important element of 2022. You’ll want to focus on avoiding data silos, keeping costs in check and ensuring that your various cloud environments can easily interact with one another.
There’s no doubt that 2022 will be another mobile-centric year. These technology trends, while hot topics now, will likely be joined by many others in the not-too-distant future.
