It is no secret that business needs to stay on top of the ever-changing technology landscape. Companies that do not keep up will not succeed in the digital age. But, depending on how fast your business adapts, you could be missing out—or left behind altogether.
As a new year begins, we start to see lists touting the latest information technology trends to watch. However, it can be a challenge for non-technological business leaders and busy IT managers to keep up, digest, and make thoughtful decisions about the technologies in which to invest.
In this post, I share nine tech trends that we consider the most impactful for our clients and similar companies in the coming year.

What Are the Biggest Technology Trends for 2022?
- Data Fabric
Gartner defines data fabric as a “concept that serves as an integrated layer (fabric) of data and connecting processes.”
- Distributed Enterprises
As we have seen the rise of remote and hybrid work, we also see an increase in the distributed enterprise model. The distributed model entails co-locating various teams that make up a company.
- Cybersecurity Mesh
Escalating cyber threats and decentralizing the workplace requires an innovative approach to cybersecurity. Enter the concept of cybersecurity mesh which broadens defense beyond a central physical plant.
The growing utilization of artificial intelligence (AI) in business processes has been a powerful technology disrupter. Hyperautomation is one of the leading outcomes of this development.
- Privacy-enhancing computation
Privacy-enhancing computation (PEC) is part of a collection of methods helping to solve the challenge of achieving data privacy.
Low-code and no-code techniques allow non-developers to piece together without specialized knowledge.
- Predictive Analysis
Predictive analysis is a data-driven assessment that is used to forecast the likelihood of a given future outcome using historical data and machine learning.
- Networking, Connectivity, and Security for Remote and Distributed Work
Whether part of a formalized hybrid or distributed workplace model or just a liberal remote work policy, dealing with protecting data and systems is the new normal.
Finally, cybersecurity deserves to be singled out as it will remain a constant focus for IT in the coming year. Discover which types of cyber attacks are expected to increase in 2022 in the whitepaper.
