The world is entering an era of technology. The development of an increasingly fast era, supported by adequate technology, provides convenience for human life.
Inventors around the world are competing to create the latest technologies that can help mankind in all aspects of life. In developed countries, advanced technology cannot be separated from people’s lives.
How about Indonesia? The emergence of the Covid-19 pandemic, on the other hand, has had a good impact on Indonesia in terms of technology and information. Amid limited physical meetings, the acceleration of information technology is getting faster. This pandemic has accelerated the transition of services to digital. This increasingly intense digitalization has also encouraged Indonesia to become a digital-based country.
The business and economic sectors are also pushed forward with increasingly sophisticated technology and digitalization in this era. When a company accelerates digital development to reach customers, it can be sure that they will continue to follow developments, experience branding, transact, and generate revenue in the digital economy.
Then, what technologies will change Indonesia in 2022?
The latest mobile technologies have emerged in recent times. This latest network technology is 5G. Business people, together with the government, are accelerating the acceleration of 5G networks in Indonesia. With this 5G network, various business opportunities will emerge, including wider digital adoption and the development of stronger technology infrastructure.
The convenience of mobile services and the rise of entertainment, especially through mobile devices, will drive the growth of 5G networks even faster. Even in some locations, 5G networks have been operating for several months. As a result, cellular services will begin to reach more users.
The ubiquitous presence of smartphones has also become one of the equalizers, enabling previously impossible services.
Surung Sinamo, Country Manager of F5 Indonesia, said, “Soon, the 5G network in Indonesia will be a force for economic recovery, paving the way for empowering small and medium enterprises, educating digital talent, and enabling the development of smart cities,”
Today, Indonesian people prefer to shop online rather than conventional shopping. This increasingly massive e-commerce transaction is also supported by the better convenience, security, and flexibility of cellular services offered during a pandemic. This is predicted to encourage digital transactions in Indonesia to reaching USD 37 billion by 2022.
Such e-commerce transactions sometimes require online payments as well. This has caused many people to use digital payments as their payment method.
Seeing such a trend, banks will increase their focus on e-commerce security to minimize hackers and cybercriminals.
AI and cloud computing
The development of AI (Artificial Intelligence)-based software is increasingly being carried out. This causes the replacement of human power with a machine or robot power. This change from human-based to AI-based will result in faster and better software products.
Cloud online storage in the business world will also continue to grow. Businesses will provide special options that enable the cloud to become a transformation solution for warehouses, restaurants, retail stores, and more.
“With the advent of technology, companies are more vulnerable to security breaches. Their IT tools, expertise, processes, and analytics capabilities need to be improved through the use of AI and cloud management,” added Surung.
Cloud computing will make it easier to analyze data on digital devices. With data increasing in number every day, cloud computing plays a very important role in the data processing process.
Those are some technologies that are predicted to develop rapidly in Indonesia in 2022.
