Technology, Future and Challenges

“After the pandemic everybody realized that there is no future without technologies and most of the organizations increased their budget for automation and technology works. Tech companies have started moving on new technologies to survive in the future. Niche Technologies demand has increased drastically and most of the companies are migrating their legacy applications to the latest technologies to move their infrastructure on cloud.

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI & ML), Automation and Robotics (RPA),Crypto-currency and Blockchain, Internet of Things(IoT), Big Data are the technologies which are in trends in the IT industry.

Agile Methodology is the primary and preferred development methodology to deliver the incremental product with usable functionality to engage the customer and integrate the customers feedback on time so chances of product/delivery failure are rare. Transparency has been increased using project management tools like Jira.

Due to Work from home culture, accessibility of servers/applications/portals are open so chances of security breach are increasing and security testing, VAPT , monitoring are also key factors which needs to be taken care during and after development. DevSecOps activities and demand has been increased to handle these challenges. Due to rapid development and faster delivery, processes and documentation has affected which is creating bottleneck in case of high attrition.”

Industry Findings Curated by Additti Gulati

Digital farming

Agriculture is a significant source of income for many families and plays a major role in increasing the employment rate. Industries are moving towards digital labour technologies, cloud storage, and other functions. Digital farming hasn’t been fully adopted by farmers because of the assumed complexities. Pakistan is one agricultural country that has witnessed some considerable diversification over the years.

Transformation amid turbulent undercurrents

Global payment revenues totaled $1.9 trillion in 2020, a 5 percent decline from 2019, as compared to the 7 percent growth rate observed between 2014 and 2019. This result seems fairly intuitive on the surface; a granular analysis, however, reveals a series of often offsetting trends. Overall, the payments industry proved remarkably resilient to drastic economic changes even as many economies spent significant portions of the year in lockdown.

How Is Digital Technology Transforming Healthcare?

Effective and comprehensive Healthcare necessitates rapidly available, easily accessible specialised information and skills, across the geographical expanse. The present healthcare delivery scenario is rid with inequities of resources (human resources and finances). The utopian solution for all health-inequities would be to ensure optimum deployment and utilization of personnel and infrastructure. This is of course elusive due to the tremendous cost and the significant shortage of personnel and the high cost involved in delivery of healthcare. In such a situation, digital technology can work like a magic wand.

The rise of 'dark ads'

In the mass media era, advertising was (for the most part) public. This meant it was open to scrutiny. When advertisers behaved illegally or irresponsibly, the results were there for many to see. And the history of advertising is riddled with irresponsible behaviour. We've witnessed tobacco and alcohol companies engage in the predatory targeting of women, underage people and socially disadvantaged communities. We've seen the use of sexist and racist stereotypes. More recently, the circulation of misinformation has become a major concern.

One backend for all your assets:
migrating monoliths to microservices
with headless system

In today’s competitive world customer always wants to have tech assets where TAT is less, dependencies are limited, and coverage of frontend is maximized. They always need something, where each feature can work independently, and agility can be maximized. Monolithic approach, one website one CMS is becoming less popular now a days. Monolithic is fast out of the gate but is an anchor around your neck when faced with changing consumer demands or an industry crisis as the technology is not modular and takes time even if it’s just pushing out a small bug fix.

Taking the microservices route means taking a best-of-breed approach to your software engineering. Microservice architecture allows marketplaces to choose and swap technology providers – microservices – for each business function without having to change the rest of the system.

Headless architecture falls under the umbrella of microservices. Headless decouples the frontend portion of the digital experience with the backend content management system. This gives option to manage your websites, mobile apps, business apps, social media handles and many more from a single Backend CMS. It only manages data exchange; it does not control templates and layout. This segregates frontend and backend completely and only communicates through the microservices and makes it platform and asset independent.

To conclude, microservices approach is the solution to ensure the agility in the real sense and to keep things decoupled, platform agnostic and quick TAT for modifications in the era of digital transformation.
