What to look for in 2023!
The IT industry is constantly evolving and staying up to date with all the information is a monumental task, so we’ve summarised some of the key tech trends that you should expect to see in 2023.
Passwords have been around for centuries and while they have served a purpose they are not as secure as biometrics. Most likely you are already using some form of biometrics verification, such as face recognition or fingerprint scanning. These types of security methods are significantly harder to crack and therefore software companies such as Microsoft are already implementing systems that ask you to verify your identity using only a username and phone app.
Data Collection and Removal
Storage in the cloud is limitless and each year you’re collecting increasing amounts of data on projects, people, places, etc. Everyone should be asking themselves if we really need to keep that data and if so, for how long? Using the Optus hack as the example, data for ex-customers from 10 years ago were leaked. There would be no reason to retain information for that long and in 2023 the technology industry will be pushing more towards deleting data after a certain amount of time.
Scaling Up and Down
With the changes in the workplace and the uncertainty around the Australian economy and unemployment, businesses will be looking to adopt more technologies that can be scaled easily. Cloud subscription services such as Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace for example, where you only pay for the licenses you actually need.
