Nasdaq has released its annual Tech Trends report which predicts which technlogies will drive markets over the next 12 months. Nothing terribly surprising in their list of 4 key technologies but their commentary provides a useful context to what is happening. They see the 4 biggest tech trends this year as:
- Custome chips;
- Edge cloud;
- Data sharing;
- Saas in the cloud.
In terms of the business apllications emerging from these technologies, data sharing is at the forefront:
“Data sharing provides opportunities for marketplaces and financial institutions to create new product and service offerings, break institutional silos and enable safer, more efficient markets. We believe that the cloud combined with emerging technologies, such as federated learning and homomorphic encryption, and sensible regulation could overcome the barriers to sharing and analyzing data for the benefit of the industry and society while maintaining privacy.”
