Top 10 Technology Trends in Singapore 2014

Published on 13 January 14
While ‘e-governance’ and ‘Bluetooth consumer messaging’ have been doing rounds in media circles for some time in Singapore and several other parts of the world, we decided to shed light on 10 other technology trends that are likely to be dominant in Singapore this year. Read on!
An Information Technology hub in the region, Singapore witnesses various technology trends each year. While some of these trends die out sooner than even the most expert information technology gurus would expect them to be, others take the market by surprise. We do not know which trend in particular is going to be a hit or flop but listed below are 10 important tech trends you can keep an eye on in 2014:

#10 - Sharing apps to rule the web:

Light and value driven sharing apps like WhatsApp, Wickr and Snapchat are likely to become more popular in Singapore. Apps are just going to be smarter, lighter and more dedicated to serve one particular cause this year. Very few business owners are actually aware of the fact that it’s not just Facebook and Twitter where youngsters and even adults are now active. There’re dozens of other apps growing at a fast pace today and even small businesses, learning centers and tuition agencies in Singapore are now making use of such tools.

#9 - M2M

In Singapore, M2M (Machine to Machine) As Service is a trend worth watching this year. If a Forrester Survey is to be believed, as many as 5% of local business organizations in Singapore have given a thumbs up to M2M.

#8 - Stronger and powerful personal cloud

Devices are important. But, this year onward, services too will take center stage. By the end of this year, it’s possible that a large number of consumers begin to value services more than device features (which by the way are more or less the same).
#7 - 3D Printing
3D Printing technology adoption is expected grow at a great pace this year. The overall sales (and therefore usage by consumers) of 3D Printers is expected to grow by almost 75% in many countries, including Singapore.
#6 - Newer Cloud - Client Architecture
As large scale organizations have now started using various cloud solutions, chances are many of them will start developing hybrid clouds keeping in mind their unique private requirements from the cloud. In 2014, MNCs headquartered in Singapore (or elsewhere) are likely to take steps to ensure future interoperability or overall system integration.
#5 - Era of Smart Machines

Smart machines (a contextually aware computer or mechanical system, for example) are likely to be more popular with manufacturing companies in Singapore this year. No, these machines won’t replace doctors, cooks and tutors who offer tuition classes in Singapore, but they sure will replace some foremen, supervisors etc. in manufacturing facilities in near future.

#4 - Decentralization of IT systems
As organizations jump on the cloud and start embracing the new M2M service, it’s possible that small, medium and even large scale organizations would start opting for decentralized Information Technology systems. Managers, for example, may now play a more important role in choosing technologies or services than engineers!
#3 - Cyber Security More important Than Ever
This year, the demand for cyber security services and freelance experts is likely to go up in Singapore. Public as well as private players in Singapore are highly likely to take
#2 - SDx
A collective term, it refers to the growing demand for infrastructure that can be programmed and data centers that are inter operable. Enterprises today want automation in each one of their business processes and that’s what SDx driven innovations aim to deliver.
#1 - Big Data Analytics
While internet giants have already begun thrashing huge chunks of data in order to draw consumer insights in ways masses can’t even imagine, businesses in Singapore are yet to take a final call on whether to jump on the Big Data Wagon or not. This year, Big Data revolution is likely to take a real shape in Singapore.
