As we dive headfirst into 2023, business owners and decision makers are tasked with identifying and solving a brand-new wave of IT challenges.

It’s no longer enough to chase success and outreach—businesses must learn to sustain and scale by to adapting to the emerging economic challenges, supply chain interruptions, and the increasingly dangerous cybersecurity climate.

Prepare your company for the winding road ahead. Pay close attention to our top three 2023 Tech Trends, selected from Gartner’s Top 10.


1) AI Trust, Security, and Risk Management (AI TRiSM)

Gartner defines AI TRiSM as “AI model governance, trustworthiness, fairness, reliability, robustness, efficacy and data protection. This includes solutions and techniques for model interpretability and explainability, AI data protection, model operations and adversarial attack resistance.”

In short, AI TRiSM is an advanced form of cybersecurity, using learned patterns and strategies to act at the first sign of unusual activity, all hours of the day.

Threat actors trick humans into irreversible mistakes just about every day—no amount of meeting compliance at a base level can change that. To combat this, thousands of businesses are projected to adopt AI TRiSM into their cybersecurity strategies by 2026, according to Gartner.


2) Industry Cloud Platforms

Gartner defines Industry Cloud Platforms as a combination of “software, platform, and infrastructure as a service (IaaS) with tailored, industry-specific functionality that can more easily adapt to the relentless stream of disruptions in their industry”.

To summarize, Industry Cloud Platforms are a specialized foundation, a backbone of industry-specific cloud tools, storage, etc., that strategically align with the goals of a business within the tailored industry.

By adopting Industry Cloud Platforms, businesses save more on costs and headaches in the long run. Instead of being forced into the latest and greatest in cloud technology, solutions that may not suit any of your major workflow issues, businesses can stick to one industry-wide platform for a longer cycle. By niching down on cloud tools, productivity and process will improve to a steady stream.


3) Sustainable Technology

Gartner defines Sustainable Technology as “a framework of digital solutions that can be used to enable ESG (Environment, Social, and Governance) outcomes.

  • Environmental technologies: Prevent, mitigate and adapt to risks in the natural world.
  • Social technologies: Improve human rights outcomes, well-being and prosperity.
  • Governance technologies: Strengthen business conduct and capacity building.”

In essence, Sustainable Technology is a bucket of different processes and solutions that consider the way the world around them is affected, socially and environmentally. This is especially important in 2023 because tech companies were responsible for at least 5-10% of all global greenhouse gas emissions as of July 2022. Larger tech giants, such as Google, were found to be less than forthcoming on their carbon neutrality reports last year, as well.

Preserving the planet is a group effort, and with the start of the new year, tech companies are holding Sustainable Technology with higher stakes than ever before.
