IT Trends 2019 How To Be In Tune

Current trends will remain relevant in the coming years, due to their global nature and ability to scale to different areas of life. Therefore, before the forecast for the following year, it will be appropriate to talk about the current state of affairs.


Despite the end of the HYIP, the blockchain remains the focus of many startups. So one of the successful projects in this area is its use in real estate. The basic principle is the binding of real estate to tokens. Tokens secure property rights and exclude the possibility of fraud since all network participants know who owns a particular property. Besides, the blockchain will be in demand for creating transparency systems, for example, in social control resources.


Do not slow down the trend to automate processes. Almost everything is automated, from industrial processes to retail. A special place is given to transport automation.

Tests of prototypes of many uncrewed vehicles have already been carried out, and soon they will appear on the roads of California. Probably, cargo drones will be used simultaneously with passenger cars, contrary to forecasts that they will begin to be used freely in 5-6 years.

The actions of Google confirm this trend. The search giant in a short time acquired several companies developing uncrewed cars, in particular, Weymo and Otto (trucks). The silicon leader Intel, which last year bought an Israeli startup Mobileye, also developing uncrewed vehicles, did not stand aside.


Among current trends will be the creation of AR\VR products. Today they are mainly used in the games and entertainment industry. Shortly, we can expect their widespread use in educational systems.

A typical example is their potential when used in medical universities, where instead of a drawing (photo) of an organ, you can see a detailed, three-dimensional image in full size. Such technology will open new opportunities for training future surgeons and other specialists.

Communication security

Another global trend that will move from the current year to the coming one will be cybersecurity. At the same time, one of the directions promises to be mainly in demand - this is information security of communications.

For example, in some regions, protected instant messengers such as Signal and Telegram outperform market leaders Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp. Also in 2019, Aegees is expected to be released, an end-to-end messenger that creates a crypto container for the user's data and can encrypt audio conferences.

Further development of IoT

According to the vast majority of forecasts, the “Internet of Things” will continue to grow, and by 2020, the number of devices in this segment will reach several billion. According to, by 2020, the volume of the smart consumer electronics market will reach $ 2 trillion. In this case, the total market volume of the Internet of things will be $ 8.9 trillion.

There will be more smart devices, and their functionality will expand. Most analysts and forecasters assign a special place to the development of intelligent medical gadgets and related ecosystems. In this case, the main impetus to the event promises to be the emergence in 2019 of the new standards for smart devices for medical purposes. According to Frost and Sullivan, by 2021, the volume of the Internet Medical Things industry will reach $ 72 billion.

We should expect a severe increase in security systems in IoT since in recent years cybercriminals have been mainly actively introduced into IoT systems. According to IBM alone, the number of such systems has increased by 600%. According to Gartner, the cumulative spending on cyber defense of IoT systems already reached $ 1.17 billion in 2017. Gartner believes that these costs will grow dynamically and reach $ 3.1 billion by 2021.

Also, an apparent IoT trend is the growth of boundary computing. In essence, this means that part of the computational load will be removed from the cloud, and the calculations will be carried out on the device itself. According to IDC, by 2020, the cost of boundary computing will be 18% of the global infrastructure of the Internet of things infrastructure.

Autonomous transport networks

In the second half of 2019 in California, in one of the cities of Silicon Valley, it is planned to launch a joint project on unmanned driving from Bosch and Daimler. Nvidia provides the platform with artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms, which were also developed with the participation of Bosch and Daimler.

Besides, the topic of autonomous transport infrastructure is being investigated in the framework of the European project INFRAMIX, which is funded by the European Commission. Within the project, it is planned to launch a mixed, hybrid movement from traditional cars and UAVs. According to Siemens, advanced transport technologies will be tested in real conditions in 2019 on selected sections of roads in Austria, Spain, and Germany.

The possibility of using autonomous transport networks is directly related to the development of AI (incl. Neural networks) and IoT, as an infrastructure concept.

Voice assistants

Another trend will be voice assistants, which are just beginning to gain global popularity. The apparent market leaders today are Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, Cortana, Bixby, Alice, and Apple Siri. In the future, they will become more “smart” and functional.

It is known that, on average, people can pronounce 150 words per minute, and print only 40. Therefore, it is generally accepted that voice input is the future. According to Adweek, in 2019, the voice recognition platform market will reach a modest mark of $ 601 million, but by the end of 2022, it will reach 40 billion.

Now, the market leader is Google, which, in addition to the assistant, developed the Google headphones pixel buds. The gadget, in addition to sending commands for Google Assistant, is capable of simultaneous translation from 40 languages of the world.

Data Center Development

Not all the directions described above can be developed without an appropriate global infrastructure. Now, such a foundation is mainly represented by large data centers.

The development of most areas in IT will significantly increase the volume of global traffic, the cumulative amount of data; will require large computing and transmission capacity. For this reason, the number of data centers in the world is growing significantly every year.

At the same time, nuclear power plants and other backbone facilities are increasingly being chosen as sites for the placement of data centers. This allows you to ensure the energy security of servers, as well as minimize the path of electricity to the data center.


It is probably impossible to describe all existing trends in IT. We touched the most striking patterns that are likely to change our lives very soon. If we briefly describe the trends that will be in demand in the IT market in 2019, we will get five words: automation, blockchain, security, drones, IoT, data centers.

These five main areas are unthinkable without many others, such as the development of AI, neural networks, more advanced means of processing, transmission, data entry, etc. However, they will be the locomotives of information technology over the next five years.
