Top Technology Trends in Software Development for 2022
After a year and more of a pandemic, we all live in the digital world and speak a software language. In our daily professional and personal lives, software is our way of connecting and responding. As software development technologies are already taking a dramatic turn, new trends are on the way in 2022.
Here is a selection of some technological trends that will change the software world:
The rise of citizen developers
Business leaders quickly agree that empowering business functions with custom, modernized applications is a top business priority. According to recent research, the market for custom application development services is expected to grow by USD 31.76 billion from 2021 to 2025 at a CAGR of 7.93%.
Overall, they are grappling with the severe talent shortage. This must change if organizations are to succeed with limited technical skills while balancing speed and quality. In 2022, organizations will adopt No-Code and Low-Code platforms to build apps with the help of business users, resulting in citizen developers. This will make Citizen Development a new branch of software development.
Experience engineering sits at the intersection of design experience, communications, new age technology, and results. In 2022, organizations will invest in creating flawless digital experiences. Experience engineering involves the use of artificial intelligence, machine learning and reasoning, big data, IoT, and cloud computing in their finest forms.
When I say more refined, that means – building self-learning systems, real-time data-driven decision intelligence, smart supply chains and whatever happens in nanoseconds – no room for. downtime, errors and problems. Experience engineering will start from human-centered design and extend to the wonders of engineering where everything will be driven by customer experiences.
Today more than ever, businesses are in desperate need of building composable applications. A volatile mix of changing customer expectations, disruptive technologies, regulatory requirements and competitive challenges places considerable pressure on companies to accelerate innovation and create better applications, without disrupting existing systems.
Composable applications are at the heart of this process. Composable applications operate on the principles of agility, speed, orchestration and resilience. This means that any module of a business application can be decoupled, making it easy to slice and slice up different components to add new functionality leading to rapid innovation.
With the rise of infrastructure as code, infrastructure as an application, interoperable applications in a multi-cloud environment, microservices and APIfication, companies are all ready to develop and upgrade. adopt composable applications. In 2022, we will see and hear many companies making progress in building in-house applications for businesses using composable architectures.
Gartner predicted two years ago that by 2025, 75% of enterprise data would be generated and processed on an “edge”. In other words, five years from now, most business data could bypass the cloud entirely.
Every application, whether it’s patient monitoring, grocery shopping, or financial transactions, generates massive amounts of data. This data needs to be processed faster by removing latency when sending data to the cloud and retrieving the results. Edge computing makes it possible by using smart devices that include capturing data using sensors, processing it in the edge cloud, and displaying the final output to end users.
Zero trust architectures
Traditional perimeter-based security measures, such as firewalls, browser isolations, endpoint vulnerability scanners, fail, thanks to the growing threat surface belonging to remote workers, integrated applications, public Wi-Fi networks, APIs and the use of open source libraries.
In this context, zero-trust architectures are the need of the moment. Assuming there is no “threat-free” and “trust nothing, verify everything” environment, by 2022 organizations will invest in multi-factor authentication, endpoint security technologies, advanced AI-ML threat detection and prevention systems, deception and verification technologies. user and system identity whenever access is granted.
In software development, it is essential to understand and recognize the changing winds of customer expectations and the changing competitive landscape. A thorough understanding of software development trends, risks, and vision to use technology as a differentiator puts companies years ahead of their competition. Leaders must be at the forefront of these initiatives.
