It’s going to take a little bit more than ghosts and goblins to scare executives. However, if you plug in technology moving at a rapid speed, with their business trying to catch up, you may be onto something.

Take the latest report released by Gartner revealing the most anticipated technology trends of 2019. Now that could cause some angst.

Gartner’s 2019 Technology Predictions

We are approaching the end of the year, where experts are futurizing all sorts of predictions within technology that has the ability to change the way major sectors work. Maybe not right away, but eventually.

These predictions portray the idea that technology will continue to be innovative, and influential in major industries. They may even appear to be “scary.”

Are we giving into a hype or reality? You can be the judge. Gartner has released a top 10 list of tech trends for us to consume and digest.

More Than Just Cars

One of the top trends Gartner has predicted has to do with the advancements that cars will make in the future.

“Gartner predicted, by 2021, 10% of new vehicles will have autonomous driving capability, compared with less than 1% in 2017.” Tech Target reports.

This includes human-assisted capabilities as well as different levels of automation.

AI Will Continue To Advance

If you think that AI is so last year, think again. Gartner predicts that AI will continue to be a driving force in the coming years.

“Gartner predicted, by 2020, at least 40% of new application development projects will have AI code developers on the team.” Tech Target reports.

Digital Space Will Connect Us

Digital environments will continue to expand in the next year. These spaces will start to evolve, including other factors of technology, like blockchain, and IoT. Although we have seen smart cities evolve this year, They will continue to mature.

So The Question Remains…

Are executives scared of these predictions? The only way to find out is if industries take these predictions head on and prepare for the future. These predictions eventually will no longer just be an idea, or a vision, but instead a concrete change in businesses.
