Looking to 2022, we look forward to seeing what happens in the world of automation technology, from artificial intelligence to robotic process automation, as well as prioritizing developers and how automation technology is used.
Here’s what to expect in the coming year:
- Prioritizing Safety and Security: The smarter the security gets, the smarter the hackers will be too. That is why it becomes increasingly important every year for automation developers to ensure that sensitive and critical business information entered and stored in the system is safe and secure. New architectures and safeguards are being developed to ensure data is secured inside and outside your business.
- More scalability: The pandemic has demonstrated the need for automation technology, even for small organizations, in order to keep business operations running smoothly no matter where employees work and prepare them for successful recovery. For this reason, automation providers make sure that their solutions are scalable, accessible, and affordable for businesses of all sizes.
- Robots in the restaurant: According to Forrester, “35 percent of service companies will offer workers from physical robots” in 2022. Due to the influx of job opportunities and labor shortages, many companies in the service industry will begin to fill these gaps with robots. These companies tend to have frequent operations, such as customer service, floor maintenance, delivery, and food preparation.
- Increase in platform migration: As automation vendors move to develop smarter automation and comprehensive, streamlined platforms, organizations that previously adopted small-scale automation technology are more likely to move to platforms that provide more functionality as they look for scalability, increased security, and more integration options with their other technology solutions.
Times are still changing in the automation industry, and we are watching these trends closely in order to accommodate current and future customers who are looking for a robust, scalable, and secure smart automation solution they can use in 2022 and beyond!
