 “Predictions, predictions and more predictions”  Each expert has his own set of calculations to guess the future trend of something they specialize in.

The pressure to keep up with the trends is particularly high during this time of year. Even big, elite companies around the world are stressed (probably more than smaller ones). We want to take the pressure off your shoulders and list the trends that really and really make a difference. So, let’s take a look at the software development trends in 2018, 2019.

IoT (Internet of Things)

IoT is impacting everything. Your cars, houses, roads, industrial equipment, smartwatch, and even your vacuum cleaner are becoming a data collection device. These devices are collecting huge amounts of data to obtain intelligent and actionable information.

IoT experts can build systems that can help you integrate smart devices, network connectivity, and computer-based systems. You will need expert professionals in information management, large volumes of data, automatic learning and analysis, dashboards and visualizations.


2017 was the year of data breaches, so of course, 2018, 2019 will be a year in which hackers will become more sophisticated. Yes, to everyone’s horror, they will use machine learning and artificial intelligence to launch even more serious and dangerous attacks. Even cybersecurity solutions will use machine learning and state-of-the-art security technologies.

There will be a greater demand for managed and hosted security services as well as an increase in the response to incidents and the adoption of automated processes to detect threats.


We’ve already heard a lot about Blockchain. 2018, 2019 is expected to be a year that will mark the year of the interruption in terms of business-class blockchain platforms. There will be an increase in the number of applications created for blockchain platforms. Until 2016 there were only 5000 full-time blockchain developers around the world. In the coming years, the number will increase several times.

Augmented reality and virtual reality

Spending on Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality software will increase. Even the hardware will become a market of $ 4 billion by 2018, 2019. There are a greater number of applications that use the power of AR and VR, and more recently the mixed reality (AR and VR available on PC).

The rise of the cloud

The cloud has changed the game for consumers and businesses around the world over the past decade. However, this year, we will see the cloud platform market position itself more on customer benefits than on their technical capability.

Cloud platforms are rarely purely technological platforms but could be described more as cloud applications that favor a user-centric experience, such as the experience offered by apps. Apple’s iPhone has been behind this concept of cloud applications, and Salesforce has made it available to businesses with its Lightning platform (i.e. Force.com) and AppExchange. Microsoft, along with Office 365 and some Azure components, is also moving in this direction. Finally, keep an eye on Facebook and Google for unique customer experiences.

End of monolithic software architectures

Previously, the software was designed for a given technology platform, taking advantage of platform-specific features, which resulted in monolithic software packages. The shift to customer-centric platforms makes this approach less attractive as it creates a dilemma. When developing an application on a given platform, which will never, work in this environment; it is necessarily designed in a monolithic way; therefore, it lacks the architectural flexibility to offer the customer experience expected by the market.
