With the ever-changing world of tech there is no wonder that businesses are fighting over who gets to try out what first. One piece of new tech can literally propell a new business to staggering heights. Of course, it is not easy to get to these cutting-edge novelties first, but following the trends carefully and keeping up with the change can be detrimental for  the success of a company. So here to keep you in the loop are some of the game-changing technologies that are taking over the business world.

Remote is in

From communication apps like Slack or Skype to project management platforms like Basecamp, technologies are restructuring office work as such. Thus enabling us to view the whole concept differently. Working from various parts of the world, solving complex problem simultaneously, all of this is possible without stepping foot in an office. This the era of digital nomads, and remote work, allowing us additional mobility and freedom while work is mostly task based and easily monitored through above mention project management platforms. The freedemo this tech brings is incredible.

Blockchain tech

By allowing digital information to be distributed but at the same time not copied, blockchain technology created the backbone of a new type of internet. It was primarily used for digital currency Bitcoin, but has also stated finding other uses in the business industry as well. It is still important to stay atop of all the current blockchain news and see how this tech progresses. If you consider that blockchain technology is like the internet in that it has a built-in robustness. And that by storing blocks of information that are identical across its network, it actually does not allow itself to be controlled by any single entity and it also doesn’t have a single point of failure.

Personal assistants and bots

Well the AI kind anyway. With Alexa and Siri becoming regular additions to our daily lives it is no wonder that more and more of this type of technology is catching on and taking over the business world. In most cases these are chatbots based on written language. It looks like they will be the predominant tech factor to reshape the way businesses interact with their customers. In the end it is all about enhancing the customer experience, or the “secret ingredient” to language finesse that is quite necessary for making that sale or maintaining loyalty.

Virtual reality and augmented reality

Both VR and AR are old news. But what is new is the way the are being used in the business world. We live in a world where visualization is key, and now you don’t have to tell your clients or customers something in the line of ‘picture this’ you can show them in great detail exactly what your proposal is all about,and this is something that can only help boost sales. So both VR and AR can help substantially in bringing your ideas to life in order to attract more interested parties.

3D printing

Once available for the selected few it is now taking the world by storm, opening so many new opportunities, especially for the manufacturing industry. So far in traditional manufacturing, objects are usually cut or hollowed out of different kinds of materials using some type of cutting tool. But in 3D printing the object is created by laying down layers of material. There is a vast selection of materials used in 3D printing from plastic, metal to concrete, liquid and powder, even chocolate or human tissue are possible options. With 3D printing there is far less waste, you use less materials and far more complex shapes can be manufactured.

So these are just some of the changes that are being made by current tech to the business industry. There are many more options, all you need to do is look, and, of course, have the required funds to obtain this cutting-edge tech. But there is no doubt that the times are changing rapidly and if businesses can’t keep up with the latest tech advancement there is a good chance they will slowly shut down.
