Technological innovation has dominated the last decade. But what will 2020 bring us?
Mobile commerce keeps growing more and more

Besides, Forrester Research predicts that in sectors such as retail, mobile will directly influence 55% of sales by 2020.
2020 will be a great year for mobile devices!
Artificial Intelligence will change the way we work
Artificial Intelligence has changed the way we live, and in 2020 it is expected to change the way we work. The combination of human and technology will allow companies to speed up processes. Advances in Artificial Intelligence will have a substantial impact on employment.
According to the consulting firm McKinsey&Company, 63% of the executives whose companies adopted AI have increased their revenues in the business areas where it has been implemented and 44% state that AI has reduced costs.
In addition, A Deloitte’s report states that almost half of the robots sold in 2020 will be for professional services.
5G… is here!
The deployment of this technology is one of the most anticipated advances for this 2020.
According to IAB Research, 5G will reach 205M connections worldwide by the end of 2020. It will outgrow 4G connections by 2025, opening endless opportunities to create new business models.
The study states that Chinese operators will have 143M subscribers by the end of 2020, representing 70% of total connections worldwide. On the other hand, US operators will reach approximately 28M in the same year.
According to the European Commission’s 5G Observatory, by 2020 5G will be a reality in at least one main city in each member state.
The challenge of the Internet of Things
In recent years we have seen significant advances in IoT.
Organisations have already understood the urgency of investing in technology to support their IoT initiatives. The challenge now for organisations is to find solutions that will help them analyse the data that is generated.
Cybersecurity: safety first
In this highly connected world, we must be aware of the possibility of threats or attacks when we are connected to the network. According to Forbes, 83% of information and business jobs will be in the cloud by 2020. That’s why the organisations must get adapted to new data management and protection laws.
