Most Advanced Technologies to Watch Out In 2019

The outline of a year is decided with many aspects for many people but for techy folks like us, new and trending technologies make the year interesting. Latest innovations not only accelerate industries to develop but also opens a new page of knowledge.

Already, the past few years went successful in the world of technology. And still, the streak is on-going as 2019 has come up with many mind-boggling technologies that will definitely be transforming the future.

As the tech evolves, more tech-based careers open up in the market. At present, the IT employees of the 21st century are experts just because of the constant arrival of ground-breaking technological trends.

It’s time for you to update your knowledge about advanced technologies that will help you in achieving your dream job.

So, here are some of the most advanced technologies that you should watch out for.

  1. IoT (Internet Of Things)
  2. Intelligent App (I-Apps)
  3. RPA (Robotics Process Automation)
  4. Edge Computing
  5. Blockchain

Here we go:

1.     IoT (Internet Of Things)

Does it sound like a futuristic term? Yes, it is the future of our world. Nowadays, it is getting quite ordinary that the devices and gadgets which are launched in the market are WiFi enabled. This means that these devices can easily connect to the internet.

Also, with the help of the internet, they can interact within themselves to sync the data and maintain the coordination to bring the best results for the user. IoT enabled devices can be home appliances, cars, cameras, etc. which are directly as well as indirectly connected to the internet for the exchange of information.

According to the survey, the number of IoT devices that were in use in 2017 were more than 8 Billion. And, it has been expected that till 2020, the number of IoT devices will reach up to 30 Billion.

Features & Functionality:

  • IoT’s fundamentally connect multiple devices and synchronises them into a virtual network that can be controlled through a single screen.


  • IoT enabled devices to create a huge network of gadgets. In this network, all the devices share their data with each other that allow them to understand their user’s actions and requirements.


  • IoT includes devices like mobile, washing machines, refrigerators, home lighting system, laptops, smart wearables and many more.

2.     I-Apps (Intelligent Apps)

At present, who is not aware of the technology called Artificial Intelligence? Artificial Intelligence is basically machine intelligence as they are designed and developed to take independent decisions while performing any task.

However, I-Apps are based on Weak AI which is a part of AI programmed to perform one single task. I-Apps focus on a specific task and take smart decision related to it.

Features & Functionality:

  • Intelligent Apps are mobile apps that are developed on the basis of Artificial intelligence. These mobile apps are designed to perform day to day tasks that make user’s life easier.


  • I-Apps are developed to perform tasks like scheduling meetings, email prioritising, content optimisation, etc. The best example of I-Apps is Virtual assistants and Chatbots.


  • Concept of I-Apps i.e., Weak AI is majorly used for the activities like robot controlling, remote sensing, medical diagnosis and electronic trading platforms.

3.     RPA (Robotics Process Automation)

If you are familiar with AI and Machine Learning then RPA is not a difficult concept to understand. RPA is a technology that is used to automate multiple tasks.

The primary work of RPA is to automate repetitive tasks that we perform daily. With the help of software, RPA deals with automated business processes i.e., data managing, processing transactions, email reply and much more.

The best example of RPA is CRM tools. CRM tools are the best-automated tools that resolve almost 60% of a marketer’s work.

Features & Functionality:

  • Basically, RPA can deal and automate every industry’s desk job work whose process is repetitive in nature.


  • With the help of Robotics Process Automation, you can easily automate any scheduled task and can perform monotonous work easily.


  • Not a single code is required to automate a repetitive task.

4.     Edge Computing

This future technology is quite closer to cloud computing. The popular examples of cloud computing are Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure. But, due to the increase of IoT devices, the data centres of cloud computing are getting overfilled.

To keep the data collectively unified, edge computing is used. This technology processes time-sensitive data in its mini data centres. Which means, a user can now upload the information to their closest cloud storage and retrieve it anytime without facing any challenges.

Moreover, edge computing will be increasing the use of IoT enabled devices all around the world.

Features & Functionalities:

  • The key purpose of edge computing is to create a network for sensors and actuators that are enabled with the internet. There are many device manufacturing companies that develop various communication devices which run on their own protocols. Edge computing can be a technology that can support those protocols. For example Bluetooth LE, Modbus, Zigbee, KNX, Z-Wave and many more.


  • Edge computing has the ability to run applications locally and process local data. However, it depends on the app’s domain, if it includes alarms, threshold-based notifications, diagnostic, analytics algorithms or any other customised coded software which can execute at the gateway.


  • This technology is completely secure as it is based on permission access controls. Communication within this technology is encrypted as edge computing is integrated with the software.

5.     Blockchain

Although the term Blockchain mainly refers to cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin which is widely known that’s not all it does.

Blockchain is basically a chain of data blocks that cannot be changed or taken apart, you can only add data to it. Here the “chain” is used because you are only adding data. Many of you may think that if changes cannot be made then it’s of no use but in reality, this drawback of Blockchain makes it the most secure means of data usage.

It is completely encrypted and secure that even the data inside the blocks cannot be altered by any organisation. To validate the transaction of cryptocurrency, Blockchain does not require any third-party software. Due to the extreme level of security, Blockchain is used for cryptocurrency. Which is why this technology can be the future for keeping personal and medical data secured.

Features & Functionalities:

  • Currently, Blockchain is the only technology in the whole world that empowers Bitcoins which quite a popular cryptocurrency across the globe.


  • Blockchain has a huge potential in different industries like real-estate, law enforcement, medical, elections, etc to keep their sensitive data safe and secure.


  • It can keep every country corruption-free as all the digital data will be impossible to steal or altered.


We are sure that you have become quite aware of technologies that are trending this year i.e., 2019. Now, it’s time for you to make use of them and choose your career wisely. However, there are many other advanced technologies like Artificial Intelligence, Augmented Reality & Virtual Reality, Big Data, DevOps, etc. However, if you need more help with these technologies, please feel free to connect with us.
