Software industry predictions in 2022 from Infragistics

Jason Beres, SVP Developer Tools, Tobias Komischke, PhD, UX Fellow, and Dean Guida, CEO, and founder from Infragistics share their software industry predictions for 2022 about digital transformations, data catalogs, Low-Code/No-Code, DevOps, Big Data, UI/UX Design and a lot more.

The Infragistics experts Jason Beres, Tobias Komischke, and Dean Guida share their 2022 software industry predictions about Low-Code/No-Code, App Builders, Big Data/Embedded Analytics, UI/UX Design, Data Catalogs, and Digital Transformations.

“The biggest DevOps trend for 2022 will be low-code no-code tools that save developers time and money. Rather than being fearful that low-code/no-code tools will make them obsolete, more software developers will embrace these solutions as time-savers that can help reduce their overloaded work schedules and enhance their productivity." - Jason Beres, SVP Developer Tools, Infragistics

Software industry predictions for Low-Code/No-Code in 2022

The future of tools in this space will include connectors and adapters to popular design tools, like Sketch, Figma, and Adobe XD. These connectors and adapters will enable digital product teams, designers and developers, so use a design process and then import designs, interactions, and branding & themes into low-code tools, still getting the massive benefits of time and cost savings of not having to re-build screens that have already been pixel-perfect designed.” - Jason Beres, SVP Developer Tools, Infragistics

App Builders

“The pandemic highlighted one of the most crucial challenges facing the software industry, the need for more professional software developers. With the latest iteration of low-code/no-code tools, both professionals and citizen developers can create new applications, enhance existing ones and automate complex tasks. This will alleviate some of the pain being felt by organizations facing a worldwide shortage of full-time developers. App builders are part of the next wave of digital transformation where everyone can become a developer. As app builder software becomes more sophisticated, we expect artificial intelligence to play a greater role in the push toward making work more efficient and productive for developers.” - Jason Beres, SVP Developer Tools, Infragistics

Big Data/Embedded Analytics

“The need for data in decision making has never been greater. As the demand for business intelligence (BI) software rises, so do new advancements, giving users the ability to analyze and make intelligent decisions without any programming knowledge. Not only can enterprises gain a competitive advantage, but today’s BI is being used to address supply chain issues and save lives. The pandemic emphasized the importance of relying on data, rather than hunches, as the world became dependent on COVID-19 visualizations to steer us out of the crisis. Government agencies and health experts are using big data analytics tools to understand, track, and reduce the spread of the virus. BI helps health experts identify vaccine supply chain issues, virus hotspots, COVID-19 rates, and more, all in real-time. The next-gen BI may change the way we determine trends and ultimately, it may even be able to predict the future.” - Jason Beres, SVP Developer Tools, Infragistics

UI/UX Design

“Shaping behavior has always been an integral part of the design. Behavior Design, Nudging and Choice Architecture are rising in prominence as ways of intentionally influencing or changing human behavior by using external and internal stimuli and motivators. However, there is a fine line between manipulating and guiding users. As a general rule, design geared toward changing users’ behavior should have the best interest of these users in mind; ideally still allowing them to make other decisions. New techniques for shaping should follow ethical standards that can guide product design going forward.” - Tobias Komischke, Ph.D., UX Fellow, Infragistics

Data Catalogs

“Organizations are increasingly adopting cloud technologies in order to keep up with the scale, speed, and use of modern data. Organizations that learn how to harness this data to drive data-driven business insight will outpace their competitors. As a result of this, data & analytics catalogs will be a “must-have” for cataloging and discovering data that matters to drive business growth.” - Dean Guida, CEO, and founder, Infragistics

Digital Transformation

“All companies need to up their game on the use of digital applications to remain competitive. Digital workplace products need to do more than chat and project management. They must drive the use of data and analytics to make decisions and understand customer needs and behavior and market dynamics in a fluid way to create a cycle of insight, action, and learning to drive business growth. Builders of apps need to ensure simple and beautiful application experiences and increase the speed of bringing digital solutions to market to help their companies survive and thrive in an ever-increasingly competitive market.” - Dean Guida, CEO, and founder, Infragistics
