Gartner Top Strategic Technology Trends for 2022

Call To Celfies — Dec 2021

Gartner expects these 12 technology trends to act as force multipliers of digital business and innovation over the next three to five years.

Every year, Gartner identifies technology trends that are critical to business.
This year, the list comprises 12 strategic trends that will enable CEOs to deliver growth, digitalization, and efficiency — and position CIOs and IT executives as strategic partners in the organization. 


1.    Data Fabric
Data fabric provides a flexible, resilient integration of data sources across platforms and business users, making data available everywhere it’s needed regardless where the data lives.

2.    Cybersecurity Mesh
Cybersecurity mesh is a flexible, composable architecture that integrates widely distributed and disparate security services.

3.    Privacy-enhancing computation
Privacy-enhancing computation secures the processing of personal data in untrusted environments — which is increasingly critical due to evolving privacy and data protection laws as well as growing consumer concerns.

4.    Cloud-native platforms
Cloud-native platforms are technologies that allow you to build new application architectures that are resilient, elastic and agile — enabling you to respond to rapid digital change.

5.    Composable applications
Composable applications make it easier to use and reuse code, accelerating the time to market for new software solutions and releasing enterprise value.

6.    Decision intelligence
Decision intelligence is a practical approach to improve organizational decision making. It models each decision as a set of processes, using intelligence and analytics to inform, learn from and refine decisions.

7.    Hyperautomation
Hyperautomation is a disciplined, business-driven approach to rapidly identify, vet and automate as many business and IT processes as possible.

8.    AI Engineering
AI engineering automates updates to data, models and applications to streamline AI delivery.

9.    Distributed Enterprises
Distributed enterprises reflect a digital-first, remote-first business model to improve employee experiences, digitalize consumer and partner touchpoints, and build out product experiences.

10. Total Experience
Total experience is a business strategy that integrates employee experience, customer experience, user experience and multi-experience across multiple touchpoints to accelerate growth.

11. Autonomic Systems
Autonomic systems are self-managed physical or software systems that learn from their environments and dynamically modify their own algorithms in real time to optimize their behaviour in complex ecosystems.

12. Generative AI
Generative AI learns about artifacts from data, and generates innovative new creations that are similar to the original but doesn’t repeat it.

The top strategic technology trends will accelerate digital capabilities and drive growth by solving common business challenges for CIOs and technology executives. They offer a roadmap to differentiating your organization from peers, fulfilling business objectives and positioning CIOs and IT executives as strategic partners in the organization.
