DataArt, a custom software development company, forecasted that big data storage enhancements, 3D data visualization and the growth of alternative marketplaces are going to be the top trends in the software market in 2013.
The company claimed that its revelations were based on analyzing various customer feedback and industry research and predictions from experts in the industries of Financial Services, Healthcare, Clean Tech, Travel & Hospitality, Mobile, and Cloud Computing.
In 2013, big data storage will be more accessible with the increase in the availability of tools and enhancements in computation technologies for developers.
The increase in the use of analytics such as the use of Natural Language Processing, information retrieval, semantics analysis and machine learning, GEO location analysis and speech recognition, is bound to bring more innovation in all markets. Healthcare and manufacturing sectors will especially benefit from advancements in 3D data visualization.
For 2012, DataArt expected it to be a ‘Big Cloud Family’ which sees a potential shift as industries and consumers realize the vast benefits from simplified decision making to deepened transparency. In 2013, mobile broadband is going to increase cloud adoption for data storage and processing. This will lead to an increase in mobile devices handling compute-intensive tasks by leveraging cloud services and full-scale computer vision capabilities to users.
Until now, public exchanges and dealer markets were some of the traditional means to trade, and this trend will go through a downward path in 2013, allowing alternative marketplaces to grow.
Eugene Goland, president of DataArt stated, “Mobile computing will be reenergized in 2013, as new applications, more intuitive experiences and advances in everyday use are set to be introduced. This will also be the year that technology start-ups take advantage of market opportunities and introduce mobile innovations such as natural user interfaces, augmented reality and image recognition. We expect a growth in opportunities across the enterprise software space, including new hardware, with a push for innovative machine to machine technologies.”
