The world of work is changing. It’s an exciting time to be in business, with new technologies and ideas coming out each day. While there are plenty of challenges that come with adapting to this rapidly changing environment, there are also many opportunities for businesses that keep up with the latest trends.
Augmented Reality Will Start to Become a Reality
Augmented reality is a technology that allows users to interact with digital content in their physical world. It’s similar to virtual reality, but instead of completely replacing the user’s surroundings with a virtual environment, augmented reality adds additional information on top of what they already see through their cameras or glasses.
AR has been around since the 1990s when it was first developed by MIT researchers who wanted to create an alternative way for surgeons to view 3D models during surgery (instead of relying solely on x-rays). Since then, AR has slowly made its way into our everyday lives through smartphone apps like Pokémon Go and Snapchat filters–but there are signs that this trend will continue over the next decade
In 2023 alone, over 2 million new jobs will require some level of expertise with augmented reality programming languages like Unity3D or Unreal Engine 4; by 2025 there will be more than 6 million such jobs available worldwide!
Artificial Intelligence Will Improve Organizational Efficiency
Artificial intelligence (AI) is being used to automate many business processes. For example, AI can help organizations make better decisions and do more with less by analyzing vast amounts of data in real time. It’s already being used in many industries:
For example, an insurance company might use AI to analyze past claims data to predict which customers are most likely to file a claim next year based on their current health status and lifestyle choices. This allows them to target those individuals with offers for wellness programs or other incentives that may reduce the likelihood of filing a claim later down the line.
This type of analysis has applications beyond insurance companies–it could also be applied by HR departments who want their hiring managers making better hiring decisions based on data instead of intuition alone; banks looking at spending habits before giving out credit cards; etc., etc., ad infinitum!
The Rise of the Subscription Economy and Digital Payments
The subscription economy is a way for companies to provide recurring services. For example, Spotify provides music streaming and Apple Music offers music and video streaming. Subscriptions can also be used to buy products or services on an ongoing basis, like Netflix’s movie and TV show streaming service or Amazon Prime’s free two-day shipping.
In this scenario, the customer pays monthly or yearly in exchange for the benefits of their service–in this case access to content from artists around the world at any time of day or night without having to purchase individual songs/videos (or CDs). This has been popularized by platforms such as Spotify but has existed in other forms before its emergence online: cable television networks such as HBO have long offered subscriptions where users pay monthly fees instead of paying per episode; similarly hotels sometimes offer discounted rates if you stay multiple nights rather than just one night at full price
More Customers Will Purchase Products and Services Using Their Mobile Devices
As more people use their mobile devices to purchase products and services, this will be the primary way that customers buy. In fact, by 2023 it’s likely that all purchases will be made using a customer’s smartphone or tablet device.
Virtual Assistants Will Be Part of Customer Interaction
Virtual assistants will be available in all devices.
Virtual assistants are changing the way we interact with technology and each other, but they haven’t yet replaced human interaction. In 2023, customers will have access to virtual assistants in their homes, cars, work spaces and even on their bodies–so that no matter where they go or what they’re doing (except sleeping), they can ask questions about products or services and get answers instantly. This means that companies will need a strategy for how best to use these tools while providing personalized customer experiences throughout all stages of the customer journey: from discovery through purchase and beyond into post-sales support.
