By combining augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR) and mixed reality (MR), extended reality (XR) could be generalized as immersive technology over the next five years, thus leaving the leisure field in order to establish itself in the industry.
Ever since the smartphone was first introduced to the world, software development has essentially changed forever. Gone are the days when apps needed to do everything and anything under the sun to stand out in a crowd. Rather than becoming a "Jack of all trades, master of none," apps are now designed to do one (or a few) things incredibly well - thus creating a competitive advantage for themselves in an era where there's "always an app for that."
At a time of cost reduction and shortage of IT personnel, RPA or robotic process automation may appear as a solution for automating repetitive tasks. Plus, it can facilitate digital transformation. So, is it the umpteenth term in vogue for the IT industry to enjoy? Or is it truly a disruptive technology? No doubt its success will depend on its integration into the overall business strategy.
As the Internet of Things (IoT) gains momentum, a new technology emerges, connecting objects to the hyperscalers’ clouds: edge computing. The objective: shifting computing power as close as possible to the IoT devices.
For a company, the implementation of a software asset management (SAM) solution has many benefits in terms of compliance, efficiency and agility, not to mention lower costs, time saving and risk reduction – all of this with better governance. Too good to be true? Not so sure…

Integration, integration, integration. From now on, IT and business teams need to be aligned, meaning they need to work closely together. That is the true cost of agility. If the DevSecOps concept was to design integrated security, why not choose security that is not only integrated in both operations and development, but that is at the very foundation of any initiative?
At the end of the year, the time is right to take a look at the balance sheet, but also to set a number of new goals. And no, there will be no rest for the Chief Information Officer in the coming year. Automation, the war for talent and business alignment remain on the agenda in 2020, without forgetting the operational side of IT.
If there is one term in vogue in ICT these days, it has to be AI or artificial intelligence. According to Gartner, AI’s adoption rate has increased from 4% in 2018 to 14% in 2019. But still, AI covers many realities. It is therefore important to focus on technologies that offer the biggest potential or return on investment.
