Top Trends in Software Development 2022 | Latest Tech Trends

1. DevOps

DevOps is one of the most trending technology which refers to a combination of two terms 'development' and 'operations'. In simple terms, DevOps is a methodology or software development approach with which you can develop software quickly. As most of the modern businesses are moving on cloud services, DevOps technology helps to deliver software more quickly with the help of Design, test, deploy and track software applications.   

With DevOps technology we can create customized and agile ecosystems which mainly offer fast delivery, reduce the number of resources and can be implemented with the most accurate result. Nowadays, developers' first approach is to use DevOps Methodology to execute IT projects when it comes to deliver in less time. DevOps includes methodologies such as Agile software development, project management strategies like Lean and Six Sigma.  


2. Cloud Computing

Cloud computing is another trending technology which allows access to services like storage and on-demand delivery of IT resources via the internet connected off-site data centers. In cloud computing, these data centers are handled by third-party companies referred to as cloud providers

Instead of buying, owning and handling data physically, cloud computing allows access to the services like storage, computing power, data centers and databases with pay-as-you-go-pricing with the help of cloud providers like AWS(Amazon Web Services).

Cloud computing now has become an integral part because it allows businesses to securely access remote data storage and access to many cloud services which helps businesses to execute business operations smoothly anytime and anywhere.


3. Containerization

Containerization is a form of virtualization that has become one of major trends in software development. Containerization is basically a system in which applications are run in isolated user spaces known as 'containers' while running the same shared operating system. To work on virtual machines needed to run different parts of it, which resulted in an increase in cost. This is the reason most of the companies have moved to Containerization which uses containers as an essential package of configuration files, libraries and dependencies.

Containerization simply helps companies reduce overhead costs, makes a portable computing environment, and allows it to be scaled much more easily since they share the same Operating system. Implementation of containers are much easier and quicker to create and activate because you don't need to install an operating system every time you set it up as in VM's.


4. Artificial Intelligence (AI) 

Everyone has heard the term 'Artificial Intelligence', there is no doubt that Artificial Intelligence has become the most powerful technology. Artificial Intelligence is a technology mainly focused on getting machines that work exactly like humans which can include speech recognition, learning and solving complex problems.

Today AI is used in almost every domain such as healthcare, entertainment, automobiles and robotics with the help of assistance and IoT devices.   


5. Augmented Reality(AR)

Augmented reality is the technology to superimpose information like sounds, images and text in a real-world environment and help to create digital objects. Basically augmented reality helps to connect the real world with the digital world. AR apps are easy to implement any information which includes a mixture of visuals, graphics, text and sounds as well. Thereby it's easy to promote individuals' business engagement with clients and make it easy for users to view business's products and services.
