Nine Software Development Trends In 2021 To Watch For Now

CEO and Founder of Qulix Systems, a software development company rendering its services globally for over 20 years.

As a very unique year slowly comes to an end, experts are here again to predict the most promising trends in the app development industry. In this article, we will discuss the cutting-edge software technologies, programming languages and other areas that I believe are going to gain more power in the software industry battle next year. 

1. Native App Development

It’s no surprise that this approach will gain momentum, especially in the banking/fintech industry, multimedia products and other areas with increased demand for flawless performance on mobile devices, reliability, quality and security. Native development provides enhanced user experience and outstanding performance when these parameters are a priority. 

2. The Internet Of Things

The rise of IoT is not going to stop in 2021. Smart home systems, Bluetooth trackers, car gadgets, point-of-sales beacons, IoT devices for manufacturers and plants, smart wearables for healthcare and fitness. This is just a handful of possible use cases for internet-of-things technologies. IoT should be mixed with AI and big data for maximum productiveness, but it remains highly trendy. According to a 2018 Bain and Co. report, “We expect the markets for IoT hardware, software, systems integration, and data and telecom services to grow to $520 billion in 2021, more than double the $235 billion spent in 2017.” 

There definitely will be more implementation opportunities that will help people improve their quality of life. More affordable and effective IoT devices will change most industries. As for IoT software development, I think IoT engineers from all over the world should improve their programming skills to write code for energy-efficient connected devices.

3. Human Augmentation

Human augmentation is a set of technologies that is used to enhance,

Death of the HQ? Pandemic hits commercial real estate, but long-term trends still open to debate

“HQ’s are finished.”

That was the hot take this week from Chris Herd, founder and CEO of remote work setup startup Firstbase. After speaking with about 1,000 companies over the past six months, he estimates that many will be cutting their office space by as much as 40% to 60%. About 90% of workforces indicated that they “never want to be in an office again full-time,” he wrote.

The latest example of the trend is the news this morning that working from home will be a permanent part of the mix at Microsoft. Boosting access to talent, reducing costs, and quality of life were among the benefits of remote work cited by companies in Herd’s informal survey.

“Good thread on the future of work. I agree with him,” former Zillow Group CEO Spencer Rascoff chimed in.

Why this Seattle-area startup ditched its physical office — and what it means for the future of work

Of course, Herd has a vested interest in the future of remote work, and his sample looks to be more anecdotal than scientific. And others aren’t convinced that physical offices are dead. Commercial real estate firms, which have their own inherent biases on the topic, remain bullish about employees eventually returning to the office despite increasing vacancy rates over the past quarter.

“It will take some time to return to our pre-COVID-19 levels but we are confident of our recovery,” real estate company Broderick Group said in its Q3 report for the Seattle region. “Bet on cities. Bet on Seattle.”

So what do the numbers say? Two new statistics provide a sense for the trends.

YouTube and influencer business trends newsletter October 8

Hi, this is Amanda Perelli. Welcome back to Insider Influencers, our weekly rundown on the influencer and creator economy. Sign up for the newsletter here.

TikTok rival Triller has reported ever-increasing user numbers in the last year, but some former employees are wary of its figures.

My colleague Dan Whateley spoke with six former Triller employees who pointed in particular to an October 2019 press release by the company, which they said gave a monthly active user count that was far above what they were seeing on some internal metrics at the time. 

In the October 2019 release, Triller said it had grown 500% organically year over year to 13 million monthly active users. But a screenshot provided by a former employee from one of Triller’s app-analytics tools, Localytics, showed just 2 million monthly active iOS users and about 484,000 monthly active users on Android devices. It was taken a few weeks after the announcement. 

Four of the six former Triller employees Dan spoke with confirmed that they had access to the Localytics dashboard and remembered Triller’s monthly active-user count ranging between 1 million and 2.5 million at the time. The other two said they remembered the monthly active-user count being about 1 million to 2.5 million at the time but did not name Localytics in particular.

In a statement, Triller CEO Mike Lu said the former employees were “disseminating inaccurate information” to Business Insider and that “relying upon probably false information is concerning.” He also said the company no longer uses Localytics.

More recently, Triller threatened to sue the app-analytics company Apptopia in August after it provided estimates of Triller’s app downloads that were much lower than the company’s publicly reported numbers, TechCrunch first reported.

Triller has since hired Apptopia and the two companies plan to copublish a report

Robert Lewandowski to speak at BI Global Trends Festival 2020

Business Insider is proud to announce that Robert Lewandowski will speak at the inaugural BI Global Trends Festival, a virtual event taking place the week of October 19-23, 2020.

Lewandowski is the captain of the Poland national football team and plays as a striker for Bundesliga club Bayern Munich. He is the Poland national team’s all-time top scorer and Bundesliga’s all-time number three scorer.

On stage at Business Insider’s virtual conference, Lewandowski will talk about his experience and challenges he faces as a team leader — and not just on the football field. 

“Self-discipline, strong will, perseverance, ability to make instant decisions and to draw conclusions from wins and losses are the desired traits of any athlete, and they are increasingly decisive to business successes,” Lewandowki said. “Both these domains also require a leader, a captain.”

Lewandowski is an investor in long-term technology and real estate development projects, trading and service platforms, and products for athletes. His investments include a stake in Movie Games, a computer games developer and publisher listed on the Warsaw Stock Exchange, and SamuraiLabs, which aims to detect and prevent online violence.

Hear Lewandowski discuss how to spot opportunities, how to motivate yourself and others, and how to keep focused on a goal in difficult situations. His session “The Focused Leader: How to maintain focus and peak performance in challenging times” is scheduled for Friday 23 October at 18:25 CEST on the event’s Global Stage.
