Application development is an integral part of any growing business, however, traditional hand-coding is time-consuming and expensive. Fortunately, the latest advancements in programming can help you launch apps quickly.

Artificial Intelligence

As with any business, most IT experts consider AI as an intricate part of the future of software development. Contrary to rules-based systems, AI-powered programs create decisions based on learned human behaviours, solving problems instantly with the use of real-time data.

Moreover, AI technology allows developers to streamline the testing process – continuously scanning systems for possible failures or bugs that can result in a defective product.

Hybrid Programming

Since traditional coding requires a lot of time and effort from numerous IT experts, organizations have been wary of planning and building proof of concept applications. With the development of low-code platforms, IT pros can develop new solutions – quickly & cost-effectively – without the intricate knowledge of programming languages or frameworks.

IT experts focused on efficiency can cut costs on development while still producing highly-customized solutions unique to their business.


No, not Bitcoin. Due to the technology’s decentralized nature, software developers have naturally made a way to incorporate it into their projects. This trend is beneficial, especially for financial-related platforms. Since it works on the premise of peer-to-peer (P2P) technology, you can prevent unauthorized access to your app, thereby protecting confidential business information. With this advantage, more industries have expressed their interest in blockchain technology. A recent study from Statista reported that by 2025, the global market size of blockchain technology could reach up to $39.7 billion.

Multi-platform Development Tools

In the past, developers used one programming language for each operating system (OS). Today, the invention of cross-platform development tools, code is easily transferable to a variety of operating systems, such as Android, iOS, Windows, and Linux. This trend allows businesses to save time and money without the need to write multiple codebases for a single app. With the use of this technology, you can observe how software development is changing. For instance, these apps help in utilizing data analysis software for your business.


IoT allows businesses to control remote devices in different locations, helping to improve efficiency by connecting and monitoring internet-connected equipment. Since IoT is still in its early stages, IT experts are continuously exploring ways to strengthen its security. Connections to hundreds of different types of equipment brings significant risk to an organization, especially if the devices hold sensitive business information.
