Top 8 Technology Trends for 2020

Top 8 Technology

The IT World remains in a state of constant flux. As an IT professional it is almost like a survival tactic to keep yourself updated with the ever-evolving new technologies as well as the market trends. What’s new in technology always embarked as an important question when reviewing through the 2020 tech trends. So to answer this, Gcreationz brings you the top 8 Technologies for 2020. Going through these new technology trends is extremely important if you want to launch your career or business in the year 2020.

 These are top 8 technology in 2020 

Cognitive Cloud Computing.

The cognitive cloud is an extended ecosystem. It is due to this that we can deploy cognitive cloud computing applications and solutions to the masses using cloud computing. Not just that, it is one of the next big things in the IT industry. Also, it can converse in natural language and helps in decision-making by understanding the complexities of Big Data. It is expected to generate a revenue of 13.8 billion US Dollars by the year 2020 alone. And hence big companies such as IBM, Microsoft, Google, and Cisco are already investing in Next Generation technology to keep up with the upcoming Market. Cloud trend looks at the next era of the cloud where these cloud services don’t simply exist in a remote centralized server but are distributed down into your data center. Cloud allows you to deal with some of the potential regulatory issues.


5G represents the next generation of cellular networks and services. Switzerland the current world leader in 5G technology closely followed by South Korea and the United States. A bigger roll out is anticipated by the year 2020 with the global adoption of this technology. It is expected to give a minimum of 20 Gbps downlink and 10Gbps Uplink which would make it 40 times faster than the current 4G LTE technology. Opening doors for newer Services network operations and customer experiences on the part of Telecom operators. Companies engaged every lie in the development and testing of 5G equipment are Samsung, Huawei, Intel, Ericsson, Nokia, Deloitte, and Qualcomm.

Big data.

So who doesn’t know about Big Data already? The word has been buzzed for quite a few years. With all these businesses moving beyond the traditional ways of data storage and processing, big data has made its way to the big games. Now with all these new technologies such as Data Analytics Automation, Augmented Analytics, and data as a service, big data is here to change the game across Industries. Now while we’re on the subject, let’s talk a little bit about a subset called Dark data. It means all this data that is generated along with big data, but is untapped. Now the potential is unlimited and by the year 2020, about 93% of all data is going to be categorized under this subset. Companies that are investing in big data include Netflix, Amazon, Starbucks, Spotify, and Adobe.


This is a future technology pattern consisting of other big Technologies. It considered to be a catalyst for change in the post-Digital World. Now as you might have noticed the DARQ is an acronym that stands for Distributed Ledger which first gained its momentum in the industry with the introduction of blockchain and Bitcoin. “A” stands for artificial intelligence, which is bringing about tremendous change in various domains. “R” as an extended reality in including augmented reality and virtual reality and “Q” as in Quantum Computing which basically means you’re trying to create IT Technology based on the principles of quantum theory.

Recently, Google has made a Breakthrough by attaining Quantum Supremacy. With 53 qubits of quantum processors, It has successfully carried out a random circuit program a million times in 200 seconds, which otherwise would have taken ten thousand plus years by traditional computing. At this moment 9 out of 10 businesses are experimenting with one or more DARQ Technologies. While each individual technology is at a different level at the adoption curve, one thing is for sure, the first wave of DARQ Technologies is coming soon.

IoT is one such technology making its way into top every single year. By the year 2020, it  estimated that around 75 billion connected devices are going to exist on the face of this globe. IoT is also paving the way for Edge Computing. For Enterprises to keep up with the technological trends they have to build their infrastructure upon Edge base design patterns. There are a few FrontRunner in this particular Market. We have AWS, Cisco, Microsoft, Dell, and HP, but other smaller businesses are also quickly acquiring the IoT platform and aren’t too far behind.


Hyper-automation is nothing but an amalgamation of two super Technologies of this era – RPA and machine learning. Understanding the automation mechanisms and how it controlled and coordinated using machine learning will be the main focus of this team. In the year 2020 hyper-automation implied to have a major macroeconomic implication on the market. Hence top companies need to gear up for this convergence in demographic shifts. For now, companies such as Wipro and Infosys are experimenting with this technology. But other companies are not very far behind.

Hyper automation is the people-centric trend. Hyper automation looks at two things-

  • Expansion of automation or everything that can be automated will automated
  • Hyper automation looks at going from RPA and task-oriented automation to adding much more sophisticated. AI-based process Automation and building digital twins of the organization for digital Ops.

For example, rental car companies exploring how automated expert systems and assistance can used to rent your rental car or perform some other customer service activity.

Cyber security

The widespread use of the IT ecosystem, cyber security remains one of the major concerns for most companies. Now the year 2020 is going to be a year to converge multiple nascent cyber security Trends due to the automation of cyber security as well as the development of public IT infrastructure. Multiple companies increase the security budget year by year to thwart malicious threats as well as a response to the recent data privacy legislation. Top-notch companies such as IBM, Hacker One, and avast are making it to the top 150 companies for cyber security.

AI as a service

We finally reach the top of our list. Here we have AI as a service. Artificial intelligence is one of the most revolutionizing technologies of this era. And in 2020 is going to Boom even more. But to build and deploy AI-based Solutions continues to a very expensive affair on the part of most businesses. We expect to see a bunch of different providers in the year 2020 with tailor-made solutions for specialized tasks. Big Brands like Apple, Google, and Microsoft are ahead of their game and at the forefront of this particular initiative, digging deep into the potential of this technology. The experimenting and finding out AI-based solutions to stay ahead of their competitors.

For example, we can use AI security. AI security has three key aspects

  • Securing the AI models themselves and the training data used to support them.
  • Using AI to enhance the security tools used to defend the organization.
  • Addressing the new types of attacks where the bad guys are using AI to enhance their attack efforts.

The bad guys creating phishing attacks are using the technology to gather information and dynamically generate new types of phishing attacks that look scarily like email that came from your brother or your sister or some other trusted entity.


These Trends are going to be the foundation for how you build people-centric smart spaces and deliver business value. Here I conclude my list of the top 10 trending Technologies for the year 2020. There are many changes from the IT trends 2019 list in this. Thus, representing a major change in the IT sector from 2019. Even though many technologies out there in the market, but going through all aspects and researching precisely. So we found these 8 skills as the top in the 2020 technology trends.
