Marketing has gained a lot of popularity in 2016 with large and medium-sized businesses creating their online presence and promoting their services and products through numerous social media channels and sites. There’s always something new on the horizon, and we can’t help but wait and wonder what technological marvels are coming next. There are nine major technology trends we’re in store for in 2017. These technology trends are just beginning to break out of an emerging state and stand to have substantial disruptive potential across industries.
#1. Internet-of-Things and Smart Home Tech
We’ve been hearing about the forthcoming revolution of the Internet-of-Things (IoT) and resulting interconnections of smart home technology for years. We all aren’t living in smart, connected homes by now. Part of the problem is too much competition. There are tons of individual appliances and apps on the market, but few solutions to tie everything together into a single, seamless user experience. Now that bigger companies already well-versed in uniform user experiences (like Google, Amazon, and Apple) are getting involved, we’ll see some major advancements on this front in the coming year.
