I recently read about Gartner's 12 technology trends for 2022. One of the predictions that stood out to me was the idea of hyperautomation:
The hyperautomation playbook yields benefits for enterprise leaders in the year ahead. This strategy seeks to rapidly identify, vet and automate as many processes as possible.
In the world of software development, there's a lot of discussion about automation. Automated workflows impact so many different parts of the software development life cycle — CI/CD pipelines, testing, code suggestions, code scaffolding, and even writing documentation.
What do you think? Will hyperautomation will be a key trend in software development in 2022? What things can or can't be automated?
