As 2022 comes to an end, we reflect on the year and prepare for what’s to come. This year has been a challenging one, especially for many small to medium-sized businesses. With economic, supply chain, and labor shortage issues, many businesses have been forced to think differently — from operations and processes to collaboration and communication. Technology has become an integral part of this digital transition and will only continue to grow in importance throughout 2023. Let’s discuss three technology trends you can expect as we head into the New Year and how your business can stay ahead.

1. SaaS Management Services Demand

It’s exciting to see many businesses turn to Managed Services Providers for IT support. This trend will continue in 2023 — in fact, a recent report from Gartner predicts the IT services market size will grow 7.9% in 2023. Oscar Garcia, Global SVP of Strategy and Technology at NTT notes in a recent article on CIO, “The need for SaaS management is the result of enterprises moving workloads to SaaS applications and the emergence of new complexities associated with this delivery model.” With predictable pricing models and expert management services, your business can “free up their IT expertise to focus on tech-enabled business initiatives,” Garcia adds.

With end-of-year budgets and 2023 financial plans, now is the perfect time consider partnering with a trusted Managed IT Service Provider like PCA Technology Group. We specialize in providing flexible and customized IT solutions for small to medium-sized businesses. We understand that businesses of these sizes either do not have IT staff or only have a small internal staff with limited bandwidth. That’s where we can help! Explore our managed service offerings.

2. Sustainable Cloud Solutions

Sustainability is top of mind for most businesses as we move into 2023. It’s especially important to implement sustainable technology efforts whenever possible. In fact, sustainable technology is one of Gartner’s top technology trend predictions for 2023. Gartner reminds us why sustainable initiatives are so important: “Sustainable technology is a framework of solutions that increases the energy and efficiency of IT services; enables enterprise sustainability through technologies like traceability, analytics, emissions management software and AI; and helps customers achieve their own sustainability objectives.”

Sustainable cloud solutions are particularly noteworthy. Google is already leading the way with its recent partnership with mCloud to commit to launching sustainable apps and reducing carbon emissions. Cloud computing services are a must-have for any business, and PCA provides scalable and sustainable cloud solutions you can trust. With 24/7 data access, frequent back-ups, remote monitoring management, and more, your business will benefit from minimized downtime, collaboration efficiency, and reduced costs.

3. AI-Powered Software and Applications

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is quickly becoming a top trend in the technology space. Not only has AI been shown to increase profits, it also improves productivity, streamlines efficiency, and enhances customer experiences. AppsDevPro predicts that “in 2023, voice recognition and response systems are going to be a standard feature in all devices, so expect to see more AI-powered interactions.” The future is indeed bright with the rise and development of AI technology!
