Technology is maturing faster than ever before, transforming the way we do business, interact with customers and develop new solutions. Companies that know how to apply this technology are disrupting their industries—and raising user expectations in the process.
To stand out as a change-maker and deliver the value your customers demand, you have to understand and apply the tools driving this disruption first. So today, let’s take a few minutes to discuss some of the most impactful business technologies of 2020.
1. Cloud Development
Companies are becoming increasingly reliant on cloud technology to streamline business processes, reduce costs and scale more effectively. As companies continue to integrate cloud-based workflows to simplify their work, more and more developers are exploring the concept of cloud development for custom apps.
The cloud empowers development teams to use new tools (like serverless computing) to deliver apps more quickly and efficiently. Cloud-based applications are also easier to scale and can take advantage of multiple server locations to reduce the risk of lost data.
At SafeNet Consulting, we help clients across a range of industries replace outdated applications and infrastructure with cloud-based solutions. Our cloud modernization strategy is tailored to your unique business and its needs—ensuring the solutions we build create meaningful change.

2. Artificial Intelligence
Artificial intelligence (AI) is a scary concept for many businesses. Put simply, it’s software that enables machines to make more intelligent decisions and behave more like real people. Modern AI solutions can read, listen and see just like humans, creating endless opportunities to automate tedious tasks and gather important data more efficiently.
Thankfully, industry leaders like Microsoft have already built homegrown AI models for companies and development teams to use today. For example, Azure includes a powerful AI platform that unlocks machine learning and in-depth knowledge mining, allowing business users to uncover valuable insights from their content—and deliver innovative experiences in their apps.
SafeNet Consulting makes the process of building and maintaining AI solutions simpler than ever. We can help you leverage the full computational abilities of Microsoft’s AI platform, and apply that technology to solve your business challenges. Together, we can use AI and apps to analyze your data, simplify monotonous tasks and provide game-changing experiences for your customers.
3. Blockchain Technology
At its core, blockchain is a record-keeping technology that stores information about transactions. The introduction of blockchain has drastically changed a variety of businesses and industries already. For example, enterprises in supply chain management can apply blockchain to streamline a range of time-consuming tasks, including product tracking and recording important insights like transportation history.
Blockchain is making big waves in the world of manufacturing and retail as well. Manufacturing plants can use this technology to aggregate and display transparent machine data to monitor equipment and drive predictive maintenance, saving millions in failed machinery costs. Likewise, retailers and e-commerce businesses are deploying blockchain to aggregate and study user data to support their marketing campaigns.
SafeNet Consulting helps companies across the country understand and capitalize on blockchain technology. Our experts can walk your team through potential use cases and advise you on which approach aligns best with your business needs—both for today’s challenges and tomorrow’s opportunities.
