Lyubomyr Senyuk, CTO, Head of R&D at CoreValue:
‘It can hardly be referred to traditional enterprise software development, but I was really impressed by the popularity of RPA solutions within enterprises and the actual foresight some players of the market have been demonstrating. Just imagine a tool that is watching and simultaneously learning how a real user works on UI and after some time it starts recommending actions to the user based on a trained-on-the-fly neural network. The moment,when the confidence level of the model reaches the configured level, NN substitutes the user completely without any coding efforts. Such a flexible approach of self-adaptive UI can be applied not only for RPA scripting but also for building a smart UI/UX from scratch.’
Kacper Ryniec, Software Development Lead at Solidbrain:
‘In 2019, Microsoft has planned a major update for the .NET framework. The announced .NET Core 3 will bring support for Windows Forms and WPF. Will then 2019 be the year of desktop applications resurrection? 2019 will be a tough year for the enterprise clients having applications built with the old Java. Announced paid updates and security fixes for Oracle Java SE 8 (starting January 2019) will for sure increase the cost of ownership for these old apps. Overall, the current pace of progress in tooling, frameworks and third-party libraries will make it increasingly difficult to find developers keen on deep diving into legacy enterprise solutions. Hence, it’s even more important to utilize the architecture patterns enabling for quick upgrades and tech stack changes when starting new initiatives.’
Roland Guelle, CTO at Sevenval:
‘In 2019, the enterprise companies will need more flexibility for both, updated customer interfaces as well as stable business processes. Decoupling the systems on frontend and backend enables enterprises to deliver those simultaneously: stable backend processes and flexible customer-centric frontends. Docker and microservices enable numerous technologies (e.g. nodeJS, go, Rust, PHP, compared to mono cultures) and with the combination of „on-premise“ and „cloud“, the task of software architecture becomes a new key factor for success. Another valuable ingredient of the success is a “tech product mindset“ for the whole solution, compared to projects involving agencies or IT service providers. In 2019, a “release 1.0“ is not the end of a project, rather it’s a start of an evolving product.’
In the next Tech Trends blog series post we will discuss more technology trends that are likely to dominate in the foreseeable future, as well as a demand for more advanced skills and engagement that promise an exciting time to operate far beyond the outlined digital boundaries.
