With the 3rd wave of the corona, the 2021 outlook feels like a leap into 2030. Society, people, the environment, and the economy, are the major drivers of techs. From the remote workforce to telehealth’s mass adoption, technology has moved front and center as all sectors grapple with the fallouts and impacts of the global pandemic.
2021 will be an important year for the retooling and refinement of techs, particularly those, which took the limelight during the year of lockdowns and social distancing. Some of these techs include:
- 1553 Bus Analyzer
Designed for stimulating, analyzing, and testing data traffic on the 1553 bus, version 7 of the 1553 analyzer uses a GUI, which guarantees to minimize training time while reducing the potential for errors.
The analyzer also harnesses the power of hardware interfaces on VXI, PCI, PC/104-Plus platforms for simplified control over playback, simulation, data logging, display, and protocol analysis of MIL-STD-1553/1760 B and A.
- Personalized and Predictive Medicine
The potential of receiving data regarding lifestyle from smartphones, such as Fitbit and Apple Watch, offers medical experts the ability to forecast and treat possible health problems before patients experience symptoms.
As a matter of fact, American insurance firms will start using interactive schemes, which may track data regarding health and fitness through smartphones and wearable devices. This basically means that insurance companies will be able to track and consider all customers’ medical status.
- RPA (Robotic Process Automation)
Similar to Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence, RPA is another tech, which automates jobs. It also automates business processes, like replying to emails, interpreting applications, and processing transactions.
While Forrester Research projects RPA will risk the livelihood of more than 231 million workers, the tech is also creating job opportunities while altering the existing ones.
- 5G Devices
This tech got off to a slow beginning after the global pandemic brought phone sales to a near halt. With users trying to get back to normal, industry leaders anticipate 5G devices to grow. 2021 shall bring more compatibility, further crossover, and affordable prices into IOS hardware.
5G has also doubled the average 4G LTE speed and is regarded as the fastest deployed network to date. According to Ericsson’s report, 5G devices are expected to cover around 60% of the worldwide population in the next five years.
- Videoconferencing Forums
Even after the global pandemic, educators may still continue lecturing over videoconferencing platforms, such as Zoom. Though they can be doing it in more sophisticated ways.
Individuals will make these experiences more authentic and collaborative, with much richer conversations and interactions.
- Digital Kitchen Board
You no longer have to grab a pen and paper or worry about smudged printed kitchens anymore. KDS or Kitchen Display Systems are basically a digital menu board, helping restaurants to streamline back-of-house operations.
Apart from monitoring inventory and tracking meal delivery times, this tech can also ensure clearer workflows, better communications, and accuracy.
As a business owner, you might not be at the forefront of developed technology like many enterprise-level businesses do. However, tech still plays an important in the efficiency and development of your enterprise.
Given how things have developed in the past year, techs, like 5G devices, predictive medicine, and RPA, are sure to be a hit in 2021.
