Recent years have brought us many new technologies for business use, such as AI, remote working software, and machine learning, among other things. These technologies work to make our own work easier to accomplish. While more technology is appearing all the time, below are the five key technologies for 2020.
AI and Data Privacy
AI and data privacy are profoundly intertwined. Most businesses will use AI to help them gather important information about their clients. This ensures that they can continue to serve customer needs to the best of their abilities. This, however, has given rise to many concerns about privacy for people and their data. Data privacy is two-fold – on the one hand, you need to keep the data private from leaks.
Software for a Remote Workforce
The major tech trend for 2020 has to be software for a remote workforce. In recent years, businesses have been moving towards giving people the option for remote working. The year 2020, is the year when remote working has really taken off. This is mainly due to the pandemic giving many businesses no other choice than to send all workers home. Remote software allows work to continue even in the absence of a central office.
Wireless Conference Rooms
Wireless conference rooms are becoming extremely popular this year along with remote working. We are now in a time where business travel is nearly impossible, but business continues. Wireless conference rooms are a way to bridge the gap, and to incorporate new technology in businesses. They allow people from anywhere in the world to attend meetings, and even to present to meetings, if they choose.
Artificial Intelligence has been around for a while, but it is not well understood. Many people might think of Data from Star Trek, or possibly the Cylons, when they hear the term. It is in many cases much simpler, though – less androids, and more intelligent software.

Database based on Machine Learning
It is one of the business trends of 2020 because it is slowly being incorporated into those businesses. A database based on machine learning is one which learns to update and run itself based on clear and consistent data collection processes.
Machine learning is designed to grow and expand by itself. It learns how to properly work with the information it has been given. This works best when the database is properly set up to allow for expansion and control.
Business Trends of 2020
Any business of the 21st century should know to keep abreast of new technologies. These five are only some of the new technologies companies could potentially take on board and use. Technology should be used based on how helpful it is to the company! But always remember that people who will potentially work for you will also be looking at your use of new technologies.
