Top 5 Latest Software Product Development Trends & Predictions in 2021

by Stephen Foster Tech Guy
The year 2020 has been an inflection point for software developers. With the global Covid-19 pandemic hitting the world economy hard, businesses seek new ways to accelerate their technology roadmap to sustain and adapt to a primarily digital world. Software developers will play a pivotal role in meeting the unprecedented challenges of this year and shaping the post-pandemic world. They are valuable assets to businesses empowering them with innovative tools and technologies to help them evolve and grow.

With the software industry growing larger, fiercely competitive, and more diversified, the experts have made predictions of new software product development trends that will dominate in the New Year 2021. Experienced developers of a leading software product development company gaining new insights from the emerging trends and technologies will develop better in-demand solutions for your business and other clients.

  1. Cloud Migration
    The pandemic had catastrophic effects on almost all businesses, be they startups, SMBs, or multi-national enterprises. Regardless of their fields, they choose cloud migration that helps them with faster deployment of apps and services, increased flexibility, enhanced security features, and reduced costs. Research suggests that 62% of companies have upgraded or expanded cloud usage during the pandemic. 
  2. Increasing usage of AI/Machine learning
    Companies are increasingly adopting digital process automation through a robust AI engineering strategy. Whether in Cybersecurity applications, IoT, or to provide better customer support with AI-generated knowledge bases, AI and machine learning will dominate this year. AI, Machine learning, and Deep learning will make IoT devices more secure and efficient. 
  3. Enhanced focus on simple and pragmatic architecture
    Microservices architecture is over-hyped as Tech giants like Facebook and YouTube use them. However, it is not suitable for startups and SMBs and has not served their purposes well. Many companies are switching to lean and simpler monolith architecture that is easier to maintain and realize their corporate goals. 
  4. Choosing React, NodeJS, and Angular 2+ frameworks and Rust Programming language
    ReactJS, Angular2+, and NodeJS have been the top 3 frameworks used in 2020. Angular 2+ is the most loved framework for building intuitive and compelling user interfaces. React JS facilitates virtual DOM implementation that gives enhanced performance. For scalable and fast networking applications, developers choose lightweight NodeJS. Besides these frameworks, many software product development companies choose the RUST programming language to develop efficient, lightweight, cross-platform solutions. 
  5. Big Data Computation
    Due to its scalability, flexibility, and efficiency, cloud computing technology has always been loved for cost-effective data storage and data processing. Hadoop and NoSQL have proven to be highly effective in Big data storage and processing. Apache Spark is increasingly becoming popular, overcoming Hadoop Map-Reduce's limitations and providing efficient data processing. Companies will be using Apache Spark for efficient batch processing framework in 2021 and even afterward.

There are many other software development trends like Augmented Reality, Satellite Networks, Facial Recognition Technology, and 5G technologies. Having a pulse on the latest software development trends empowers you to learn and employ them and serve your target clients better, forging an enviable brand reputation.
