“The most important single aspect of software development is to be clear about what you are trying to build.”
– Bjarne Stroustrup

First things First, Software Engineering is ever-evolving, and we don’t have a Crystal Ball to see the future. A Technology that is leading right now may quickly become outdated. But based on ASPIRE SYSTEM’S experience, here in this article are some trends to look forward to in 2022.

The market situation is very challenging due to the pandemic causing the lockdowns. Many businesses are going through enormous challenges, and what is helping them? You guessed it right, TECHNOLOGY.

The innovative ideas regarding Technologies and Software Engineering have caused tremendous growth leading to exceeding the global software market size by $968 billion in 2021. Which eventually may lead to $1493 billion by 2025.

Let’s discuss some trends in software Engineering that you may see in 2022

1. Cloud-native Technology

To run inside distributed public, hybrid clouds, and private, Cloud-native software architecture is designed. It guarantees flexibility necessary for uncertain times, also allowing companies to manage their resources with ease and promptly.
Software products need this design to be efficient and scalable when working with multiple servers.
This leads Software development companies will focus on cloud-native technology.

2. Usage of Predictive Analytics

Predictive analytics has become an important part of software development. It is used in many ways, such as:
a. Finding Potential Customers.
b. Determining which feature to add.
c. Prediction about the performance of a software product in the market.
For predicting future events it uses ML, Statistics, and Mining.

3. Outsourcing Demand

Companies these days are finding it difficult to keep up with all the required resources as the demands of the software development industry are ever-changing. Outsourcing for Software development has become a common buzz methodology that every organization is opting for development, testing, MVP development, support, deployment, and many more, are some services that outsourcing software development companies may offer.

4. AI and ML-driven Approaches

AI and ML-driven approaches are accepted to be used by outsourcing it. AI is ever-growing and provides huge benefits, but it also faces several risks and challenges as it deals with data security, ethical use of data, and data privacy. A part of artificial intelligence’s significant trends is Machine learning, it provides more powerful automated decision-making and predictive analytics.
When powered by AI or ML technology, software products are more efficient and effective at performing jobs.

5. DevSecOps

Dev → Sec → Ops
Development → Security → Operations

The KEY CyberSecurity Trend to be observed in 2022 is expected to be DevSecOps. Well as the name suggests it is a combination of Development, Security, & Operations.
Its key is to improve the overall safety of software products, it also allows detection of potential security risks at an earlier stage. Along with this, the process of fixing vulnerabilities when they’re discovered is streamlined.

6. Low-code or No-code

The second digital transformation is Low-code and no-code concepts. Well, it may sound and seem contradictory as we know coding as the basis of software development. But Low-code and no-code allow users to develop, manage, deploy, and deliver pipelines for a software solution, making it options complementing software development pipelines. 70% of new applications developed in any organization will use low-code or no-code technologies by 2025.

7. Microservice Architecture

Microservice architecture is small, loosely coupled, and independent. A popular way to structure an application is Microservices. Microservices will also increase the efficiency of Software development outsourcing products, allowing it to be more efficient while developing and deploying products. It also improves communication between different parts of an application.

8. Kubernetes

K8 or Kube mainly known as Kubernetes, is an open-source container orchestration platform, automating many processes.
Kubernetes is an already established trend in the cloud-native world.
It is used with several programming languages, making it a leading platform for managing containerized applications.

9. Web 3.0

Web 3.0 is the next evolution of the web. With web applications, you may see a transition from simple, static pages to more sophisticated and interactive pages. Today’s trending technologies in software development will propel the evolution into Web 3.0, just like previous Web versions – Web 1.0 and Web 2.0.
It consists of three basic IT architecture tiers: Interaction, Computation, Information.

10. Edge computing

This is a type of cloud computing that puts data processing collection, storage, and analysis — closer to the data sources. Although edge computing is becoming a must-have for businesses, deployments remain in the early stages. Edge technologies processes around 10% of data generated by enterprises.
The rise of IoT will fuel edge computing and revolutionize various industries such as Educational & Healthcare. However, the potential of edge computing goes beyond IoT itself.

Well, as you read, software development has a lot of exciting trends making 2022 a very busy and more successful year. So, make sure to follow them. These trends will surely lead to better, faster, and more efficient products.
