The company’s latest report points out ten trends that could mark the technological challenges of companies in 2023.

One of the ESG criteria has been for some time the trend that marks investment decisions, in such a way that initiatives that do not meet environmental, social or governance sustainability requirements will find it increasingly difficult to prosper. Technology is not only the tool for such compliance but is also a realm in which such criteria must be verified. Thus, technologies that reduce environmental impacts, through reuse, recycling, conservation of natural resources and energy efficiency, will be the most requested by companies. The Gartner report says that “investments in sustainable technology also have the potential to drive greater operational resilience and financial performance while opening new avenues for growth.”.

We also find what refers to the Metaverse, defined by Gartner as “a shared virtual collective space in 3D, in which physical and digital reality will be mixed, virtually improved”, it is one of the dreams that is most heard about in the world in the last year. The Gartner report points out that the Metaverse will have its own virtual economy with non-fungible digital currency and tokens and estimates that by 2027 more than 40% of the world’s largest companies will have a combination of Web3, augmented reality (AR) and digital twins in Metaverse projects.

Although Artificial Intelligence is already a reality in the lives of citizens and the development of many companies, the step in progress is to turn it into a tool that permanently trains its models so that it knows how to react to new situations. They can, for example, use user chats to dynamically change learning to adjust to goals. Adaptive Artificial Intelligence can be central to defending against cyberattacks.

Achieving more connection time to a device requires developing comprehensive applications that meet different demands. Superapps combine the functions of an app, a platform, and an ecosystem into a single app, providing a platform for third parties to develop and publish their own applets, Gartner explains. An example is WeChat, in China, a messaging app that integrates transactions and payments in commerce.

Wireless technology will continue to develop to the point that by 2025, according to Gartner estimates, 60% of companies will have five or more wireless technologies available simultaneously. The value of wireless exceeds that of connectivity; including support for devices at the edge, location information, and power for systems.
