One of the fastest-growing Indian companies in the UK, who gave us an insight into what digital transformation will look like in 2022 business needs must be considered.

1. 5G and IoT

  • 5G is the fifth generation technology for mobile networks. 5G’s primary characteristics include multi-peak data speeds, low latency, improved user experience, better connectivity and availability, and improved network bandwidth.
  • 5G combined with edge computing can lead to interesting innovations. For example, IBM will offer cloud services to run 5G networks to Verizon and Telefonica.
  • In turn, technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), drone-initiated inspections, and video inspections will automate everyday tasks while averting any network issues.
  • Some of the use cases of 5G in the IoT domain include:
  • Connected Automobiles: 5G’s low latency and high bandwidth will enable vehicles to store and initiate bi-directional communication.
  • Shipping and Logistics: Easy and accurate tracking of shipped items. This will allow updating precise delivery timelines, which, in turn, will improve customer experience
  • Remote Healthcare: 5G connectivity will also enable seamless remote patient monitoring. Also, health experts can provide assistance at any time and from anywhere irrespective of their location.

2. Zero-Trust Security

  • Zero Trust is a security model based on the principle of maintaining strict access controls and not trusting anyone by default, even those already inside the network perimeter.
  • With many organizations adopting the remote-first culture, the risk of cyberattacks has increased. Thus it becomes essential to introduce zero-trust security to prove resilient.
  • Organizations are already planning/implementing migration to a cloud-based, zero-trust security model. The new security solution will help establish trust, authority, brand reputation, and initiate safe B2B communications.
  • Zero-trust security aids in securing applications, data, identity, endpoints, networks, and even infrastructure.
  • The three primary principles of zero-trust security include:
