What are the industry trends post-pandemic?

There has been accelerated technology adoption by enterprises and a rapid pace of digital transformation due to the pandemic.  Enterprises have become more innovative, agile, and flexible, and understood the need for enhanced technologies to achieve business goals. Some of the key trends being witnessed are:

Quantum Computing: Quantum computing handles information differently when compared to conventional computers. Its computing power is trillion times more powerful and efficient than the most advanced supercomputers we have today. Quantum computing is becoming popular in various industries like banking and finance for high-frequency trading as well as for reducing credit risks and frauds.

Artificial Intelligence: By 2025, the AI industry is estimated to reach $190 billion. It offers solutions to various industries like IT, health, education, security, and logistics. AI is known for its superiority in image and speech recognition, navigation apps, smartphone personal assistants etc.

Edge Computing: Classic computers were not able to handle the sheer volume of data and its complexities hence, edge computing was born to handle excessive amounts of data. Edge computing is a distributed computing framework that is used for computation while keeping data storage closer to sources of data. Many enterprises are moving to edge computing to enhance the operational efficiency of their businesses across the globe. Financial services, healthcare, autonomous cars network, mixed reality, IOT, IIoT etc, are adopting edge computing.

 Multi-cloud integration: The multi-cloud strategy helps in aiding flexibility and avoiding vendor lock-in. This trend has become useful, especially after the adoption of the work-from-home model. Various organizations are looking to implement tools that provide multi-cloud management and integrate workloads across multiple clouds.

HyperScale Data Centers – Hyperscale Data Centers is a large warehouse-like structure that has its own servers, storage system, powerhouse, and networks. It is used for large data and cloud-based applications. With an increase in the demand for data, hyperscale data centers are expected to grow at a tremendous rate over the next decade. Hyperscale data centers are capable of managing the volume of data, compute, and storage services they process. Cloud computing, software platforms, social media, and content delivery are some of the factors that are driving the growth of hyperscale data centers.

What are your views on the next generation as being the ones who will likely adopt the metaverse more seamlessly?

Metaverse is a virtual ecosystem where we can work, play, and live. This requires a technological infrastructure that supports colossal data streaming while maintaining low latency.  Many organizations are investing in the latest technologies like virtual reality, blockchain, video meetings, and augmented reality to bring the concept of metaverse to life. Proper network architecture and data center infrastructure are the key factors that determine the success of metaverse. Local data processing at the edge for users and enormous data processing capabilities that support the metaverse world at data centers will be required for a seamless virtual world. A report by Bloomberg Intelligence states that the financial possibilities of the metaverse are expected to reach US$800 billion by 2025, and US$2.5 trillion by 2030. The industry has been receiving a great response from various sectors which would transform virtual reality technology and the future. It cannot be denied that the Metaverse would unimaginably change our lives. Facilitating existence beyond reality, metaverse would help in fulfilling our dreams that we cannot realize in our real lives.
