As organizations gear up for post-pandemic growth, CIOs are turning to technologies that drive agility, efficiency, and speed throughout the business. There’s no question that CIOs are tapping into nascent technologies to help them chart a new path to innovation and growth.
Forty-eight percent of CIOs in the 2022 Gartner CIO and Technology Executive Survey said they have already deployed artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technologies or plan to do so within the next 12 months.
The interrelated nature of these technologies is spurring growth in each: cloud technology's speed and scalability enable rapid AI innovation, while AI and ML underpin rapid advances in robotic process automation (RPA) and the Internet of Things (IoT).
Tech trends can change on a dime—for example, the Covid-19 pandemic caused many companies to reactively switch their tech focus to enabling and supporting remote work. Still, industry watchers generally have insight into likely upcoming developments—they named cybersecurity and the Internet of Things as trends to watch in 2021, and there’s no doubt these topics have generated plenty of headlines this year.
So, let's go through different Tech trends that promise to go beyond 2023.
So finally IBC returned and apart from transportation issues at Schipol it was largely a very successful event. More than anything else this was an opportunity to reconnect with past colleagues, forge new relationships, and network, which was clearly done in abundance, you only had to visit the IBC Pub, Beach, or any of the food areas to see people chatting connecting, and discussing.
There were a number of hot topics that were raised, the rapid growth of FAST channels was one of those and there were a number of talks at the show that demonstrated how FAST has helped in the area of genre diversity and curating specialized content for particular audiences.
There also were many ‘oven ready’ / ‘off the shelf’ streaming platforms showcased, some modular and some complete end to end with built-in Widevine DRM included, which certainly would reduce the cost of overall service, however, I am not 100% convinced that this is a complete win given the diverse number flavors of devices out in the wild.
Conversations around how NFTs could be used in the film and Telco world were also discussed, this is an interesting area and something that our team at Vodworks is very familiar with. There were also discussions on telcos embracing Web 3.0 and timing, this once again is an area Vodworks plays.
Looking at the content protection suppliers there were the usual areas of emphasis on piracy and tackling it, with some vendors putting together comprehensive suites of products to make things easier for service providers.
Other areas of note were the use of AI, especially in the area of Data and making sense of it and turning it into actionable context, how broadcasters must embrace the Metaverse, and interestingly the ethics of using AR and VR.
All in all a very good show and certainly was a great opportunity to connect, reconnect and build new business relationships.

The Ethereum Merge is expected to be one of the most critical events in the crypto community. It now seems like the Merge news has attracted other tech giants that want to be part of this major event. The world’s largest search engine, Google, has started a countdown for the Merge, further stirring community excitement.
Google has shown increased interest in the crypto space over the years. In May, the tech giant unveiled a web 3.0 & crypto team that would serve under the Google Cloud division. Nevertheless, developers from Google are not the only tech-savvy teams keeping a close eye on the Merge.

The Metaverse concept coming to reality helped investors understand how the world will shift from a Web 2.0 world that runs on a centralized internet to a Web 3.0 world that works seamlessly in a decentralized fashion.
Moreover, this allowed investors to see that the value crypto brings is not just about tokens that go up and down in price but that crypto is about a peer-to-peer transaction system that is fast and connected to all aspects of Web 3.0 and the Metaverse.
And this is how tech will evolve and be pushed to the next level. And since then, governments worldwide have announced billions of dollars in funding for Metaverse and Web 3.0 development.

The blockchain and crypto sector is undoubtedly going through difficult times, with the market falling $2 trillion since its November 21 peak. An overwhelming negative sentiment is shrinking the industry’s resources while weekly outflows amount to $102 million.
The Crypto Fear & Greed Index shows that investors remain “fearful” of the current bear market conditions. But history teaches us that this lack of hype and market exuberance actually provides fertile conditions for developing innovative technological solutions.

Security bugs in code are a bit like reality shows and Instagram influencers: an irritant we were once willing to tolerate which has subsequently grown to become a much more serious problem. The National Vulnerability Database (NVD) classified fewer than 2,000 common vulnerabilities and exposures (CVEs) in 2001.
Last year, that number hit 20,000 for the first time. That's partly because we're better at detecting them than we used to be, but it's also due to a proliferation of software. It brings the problem of application security home. So how can we stop the rot and get those bug numbers down?
The road to secure code is long and arduous, and companies might find themselves having to drag their developers along on the journey. When it comes to instilling the right practices and values to prevent the next headline-generating data breach, every little help.
