INDUSTRY UPDATE

Why developers are fueling the next $1 Trillion software wave

Over the past two decades, two separate trillion-dollar enterprise software sectors have been created: SaaS software and public cloud. Today, we are in the early innings of the next trillion-dollar software wave: developer-driven software. These companies build technologies to make the software development and data management processes easier, faster, more secure and completely democratized.

 

A range of developer-driven software companies—from public leaders such as Twilio, Atlassian, Datadog, Okta, Crowdstrike and MongoDB, to pre-IPO unicorns including Stripe, Snowflake, and HashiCorp—are already valued in the billions or tens of billions of dollars. And despite the economic setbacks from COVID, this new market is continuing to gain momentum due to the shift to remote work.

How will the world look in 2025 and the future of Cybersecurity

The world has been witnessing increased connectivity every year, driven by the ongoing technological revolution. Along with the increasing connectivity, critical information infrastructures are also facing a rising number of cyberattacks, which is a cause of concern for both individual and enterprise users.

 

Experts predict that by 2025, the information that people share over the Internet will get interwoven into their daily life activities, so much so that information flow will become invisible, like electricity. There will be an exponential explosion of data volume and typical use cases. Thus, the line separating the responsibilities of IT security teams and the regulatory frameworks will blur. Overall, the data security sphere will undergo drastic transformations that could well be something beyond the magnitudes and sophistication that could be conceived based on currently available knowledge.

Why AI is the next way patients will choose their doctors

Covid-19 has changed the course of healthcare for the foreseeable future. Healthcare workers, doctors’ rooms, and equipment inventories were stretched thin even before the pandemic took hold, with patients waiting weeks or months to get a doctor’s appointment or book a surgery. Today, these resources are nearing the breaking point. By combining electronic health records and artificial intelligence, it is now possible to pair patients with the available caregivers most likely to produce the best result—based on data for patients and outcomes across providers. Such approaches offer improved care outcomes, satisfaction, access, and affordability.

A Multibillion-dollar opportunity: Virus-Proofing the new office

With companies pressing to figure out how to safely reopen workplaces, makers of everything from office furniture to smart ventilation systems are rushing to sell them products and services marketed as solutions. Some companies, like makers of thermal cameras that sense skin temperature, are rebranding their wares as virus-containment fever-scanning products. Others are creating entirely new services. Everything from office lobby, elevators, meals, and employee tracking is going to witness a change. Tech, catering, and design companies are rushing to sell employers on fever scanners, box lunches and office floor-planning apps for social distancing but it is too soon to tell if these solutions will work.
