Gartner Top Strategic Technology Trends for 2021
Regular readers of our articles already know this sentence well enough: Is what someone proclaims as a trend also important for your target group? Does it fit in with your business model? Now, just before Christmas, all the augurs are shooting from the hip again, like John Wayne in his best Western movies. But we don’t want to keep the Gartner Top Strategic Technology Trends for 2021 from you.
So what are the trends that the analysts have identified for 2021?
- Internet of Behaviors (IoB)
- Privacy-enhancing Computation
- Cybersecurity Mesh
- Distributed Cloud
- Anywhere Operations
- Total Experience
- Intelligent Composable Business
- AI Engineering
Whether you follow these trends or not, you have to decide for yourself after watching the video. Or we will be happy to help you.
In the end, a decisive question arises:
Does this add value for your current or future customers? If you answer this question with no, then put this trend on the idea memory and follow it every quarter or half-year.
There are enough tasks at the moment, so you shouldn’t deal with things that could be important in 5 or 10 years. “Drive on sight” is the motto, think and act pragmatically. A strategy is a rolling process anyway and not “set in stone”.

The CIO.de portal quotes her colleagues from the USA:
“The augurs expect that the Corona pandemic and the economic challenges it poses will continue to occupy IT decision-makers for a long time to come. “Resilience has never been more important than it is today – in all areas of a company,” says Brian Burke, Research Vice President.
“Companies must find answers to the consequences of the COVID 19 crisis on the one hand and generate growth on the other. To do so, they should focus on three areas that are driving this year’s trends: People are at the center of attention, location-independent working and resilient delivery”.
Enjoy watching what Brian Burke, Research Vice President at Gartner, has to say. It is always well prepared. Watching it also helps to have a say. The only thing we are currently missing is the Christmas party or cocktail party. That’s why we’ll soon have the digital coffee party or the digital cocktail party.
