2020 is over. At the beginning of 2021, it is time to analyze what has happened in the technology world in the past 12 months and think about which technology areas to focus on next.

Today, we list five major technology trends in 2021.

Trend 1: remote “everything”

The outbreak of the global epidemic in 2020 has changed all aspects of our lives. Things such as digital transformation and business remodeling seem to have become popular words. People’s work, entertainment, medical treatment, polymerization and other activities are basically completed at home. This trend may not change much in 2021.

The 2019 COVID-19 will continue to accelerate technology development in 2021.

This means that digital products and Internet coverage will become wider in 2021. Healthcare, business, customer service, enterprise management, etc. will all rely more on digitization.

Under this trend, the coverage of 5g mobile network will continue to expand, and there will be more and more 5g service projects. 5g will also provide more critical connectivity functions for IOT embedded systems.

As predicted by the Wi Fi alliance, the Wi Fi 6e standard will appear in about 300 million new hardware device models released in 2021.

Trend 2: behavioral Internet

Behavioral Internet (iob) is a term proposed by Gartner. It is an extension of the Internet of things, combining technology, behavioral research and data analysis.

As mentioned earlier, many daily work and activities are forced to move to digital space, which leads to more online user data than ever before. For enterprises, especially in the field of e-commerce, the analysis of these data is a very valuable source of information, but not only that.

The company’s desire to better understand its potential customers has prompted iob to become an independent strategy.

In short, iob studies user behavior and affects user behavior by collecting information and feedback. For example, medical devices such as smart watches and fitness trackers have become very popular. They work by collecting information about users’ location, physical activity, heart rate, weight and body composition, sleep time, calorie consumption and burnout.

The person wearing the smart watch agrees that the smart watch and tracker supplier collects and processes all this information. In turn, the company can use these data for targeted marketing, increase sales and make the customer experience more personalized. In addition to advertising, IoB technology also applies to health care, automotive (automatic driving system) and enterprise management (ERP system development).

Trend 3: higher level morality and security

The progress of technology always leads to the discussion of its moral impact. Things like online doctor consultation or using mobile app to manage drug prescriptions can bring a lot of convenience, but you can’t get these convenience if you don’t share the most sensitive information with software suppliers.

This is why in 2021, enterprises will pay special attention to the ethics and data security of their digital products. Network security protocols will become more and more complex to achieve privacy enhancing programming, but it also requires more budget. Machine learning will become an information technology to identify attacks early and even generate defense patterns without participation.

As for the actual technology stack, we can expect to see the popularity of programming languages related to machine learning development (Python, C #, C + + and JavaScript, etc.).

The need to meet all digital ethics standards will also bring changes to the software development and testing services market. Although requirements such as third-party functional testing or full cycle quality assurance services are no longer new to the IT industry, in 2021, we will see enterprises seeking data privacy and digital ethics assurance services.

Considering the complexity of modern user data protection standards and their implementation in practice, it is very important for enterprises to establish an independent test process to ensure ethical data collection and storage.

Trend 4: commercial operation through quality assurance

It is very important for enterprises to ensure that customers and employees have access to products and services. Many companies engaged in completely different industries, from banking to entertainment, have begun to force the “everywhere” business model described by Gartner in a recent article.

This model outlines the number of development methods and technologies jointly applied to achieve flexible back office operations and the stable distribution of the company’s products and services.

When realizing technical stability and flexibility in practice, software quality assurance has become the focus of attention.

The independent QA service that provides comprehensive software testing and inspection is not only the function of the system, but also the accessibility and performance of the system under damaged conditions. This service will increase next year.

In 2021, the pursuit of business expansion will also increase the demand for technologies to achieve digital mobility and stable data connectivity. This includes cloud computing and mobile software development using. Net, Java and golang programming languages.

By the end of 2023, it is expected that 40% of companies will try to integrate ubiquitous business models into their business management methods. Therefore, we should pay close attention to PAAS (platform as a service) and cloud enterprise management software.

Trend 5: artificial intelligence engineering and automation

Although some disruptive changes have taken place in the IT industry this year, the investment in artificial intelligence has not decreased much (up to 7%) even in the most critical months. According to Gartner, many companies are planning to increase their AI specific budgets in 2021. This means that AI models actually begin to feed back results in proportion to their investment.

In 2021, AI programs and technologies will be mainly used to establish Devops processes. After applying artificial intelligence to their software solutions, many organizations report higher stability, stronger performance and faster response without providing any additional resources for program maintenance.

As for programming languages, the market demand for lisp, python, C + + and Prolog programming languages dedicated to AI development is expected to increase significantly.


2020 has passed. The only thing we can be sure of is that the development of technology will not slow down for a minute.

The trend highlighted in this article is only the tip of the iceberg of Technological Development in the coming year. There may be more innovations in 2021.
