What's Next: Software Development Trends for 2021

by Stephen Foster Tech Guy
Software development has witnessed a massive change in recent years. With the COVId-19 pandemic hitting hard and unprecedented regulations in form of social distancing and lockdowns, many businesses seek expert software development services from IT specialists and software developers of reputed agencies for digital transformation.

Digitalization with the increased focus on contactless servicing, DevOps and cloud migration has become the highest priority for many companies. With the evolving needs to create sustainable and growth-oriented businesses in the post-pandemic world, experienced IT specialists and developers will play a crucial role in helping businesses realize their objectives and gain impressive growth.

Based on the new demand and current trends, one can predict how the landscape of IT services will look like in 2021 and beyond.

  1. Increased Demand for Cloud Services and Tools
    With remote work being the new normal, companies need to reorganize operational procedures to facilitate seamless work in the pandemic. It led to the surge in demand for cloud services and cloud computing tools. Developers use SaaS, IaaS and PaaS solutions to empower businesses with dynamic cloud solutions that offer flexibility and enhance productivity.
  2. Low Code development approach
    With the increasing demand for software engineers and lower availability, many businesses seek low code developers for software development services who use graphical user interfaces and configurations to develop digital solutions. It saves time and money, reduces manual work and allows developers to work on high-priority projects.
  3. Adoption of CI/CD tools
    Continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD) and deployment are essential to ensure the quality of web and mobile apps from start to finish. Development companies require focusing more on continuous integration, delivery and deployment that simplifies seamless integration of code changes, fixing bugs quickly and streamline the development process to complete projects faster.
  4. Increasing Popularity of Python and JavaScript
    68% of software engineers have used JavaScript while 44% of programmers used Python for coding in 2020 as per a Statista report. Python is getting more and more popular with each passing year and this trend will continue well into this year and beyond. Developers find python to be quite useful in developing apps with AI and ML-based features.
  5. More usage of Progressive Web Apps
    Progressive web apps enable developers to create platform-independent apps that can easily run on any device using any operating system. These apps are developed using HTML, CSS and JavaScript and enhance customer engagement while saving time and money.
  6. Evolution of AI
    Artificial intelligence has taken the world of IT services by storm. More and more AI-based apps are in demand as they facilitate companies to provide maximum value to their customers, help them make well-informed decisions and automate many tasks. Developers use Natural Language Processing (NLP) and their features to program machines to enable them to do some additional functions like a human. 
Although the list of the development trends is not all-inclusive and many like the growing use of Blockchain technology, native app development, IoT expansion and others are missed, the landscape of IT services is going to change a lot with these defining trends.
