1 Prediction
Towards a sustainable digital economy

Date : October 22, 2021

In 2022, digital transformation across multiple industries will accelerate, spurred by the regulatory push for data privacy and environmental sustainability. Decentralization will be the underlying theme; computing resources and communications have already been decentralized, and we will continue to see computing and communications included in almost all devices.
Cloud decentralization will finally happen with the maturity of edge cloud and, along with distributed ledger technology and artificial intelligence, will start transforming financial transactions. This will drive a rapid migration from the Internet of Things to an “Internet of Systems,” where siloed apps and solutions will be connected to provide the necessary foundations for a hyper-connected world and a sustainable digital economy.
