Mobile Computing and Applications
More and more people are using their smartphones to do their shopping, banking, and conduct business. In fact, 77 percent of Americans have a smartphone, so there’s a need for mobile computing and applications in information technology. With the increase of smartphone and mobile usage, more and more businesses will have to resort to mobile computing to change the way they conduct business. Companies that don’t adopt mobile computing in 2020 risk losing business to their competitors.
According to Jeffrey Hussinger, automation takes care of a simple tedious task that would take a lot of time for humans to perform. Hyperautomation in 2020 will allow for artificial intelligence to deal with specific tasks, so humans can focus on creating and designing new programs. Hyperautomation is not a single tool; it’s a series of processes such as robotic process automation (RPA), Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Intelligent business management software (iBPMS).
Jeffrey Hussinger explains that human augmentation is a process of using technology to enhance a human’s cognitive and physical experiences. The use of human augmentation in technology can have several purposes, such as keeping a person safe or making them more productive. Human augmentation can take different shapes such as sensory augmentation, appendage and biological, brain augmentation, and even genetic.
Big Data Analytics
According to Jeffrey Hussinger, who has worked for companies such as Midwest Airlines, Johnson Outdoors, and local government, companies have always struggled to have a system analyze large quantities of data. Big data analytics provides a solution for businesses by analyzing and sorting large amounts of information. With the help of big data, companies can have a more manageable handle on their data and focus on their growth.
