Gartner identifies technology trends for 2023 to guide businesses set suitable priorities and goals for the year
Company executives anticipated that they would be focused on post-pandemic growth by now. Instead, the majority are now concerned with controlling the effects of ongoing inflation and managing the risk of a recession. But dealing with supply chain, energy sourcing, and digital skills challenges also warrant their attention.
Despite the uncertainty of the future, businesses must nevertheless recognize and commit to strategic projects and results. Your goals can be saving costs, boosting margins, or changing business strategies. Trying to keep up and prepare for trends can add the edge necessary to achieve these goals.

Gartner releases a yearly list that assists business executives can utilize to align their goals and strategies.
How does Gartner choose these trends?
Each year, Gartner chooses the leading technology trends that are crucial from a strategic standpoint because:
- The trend is significantly affecting a technology or will be affected by it.
- The trend will elicit a response from C-suite executives in charge of IT and/or digital strategy.
- The trend will demand a reaction in the upcoming 0–36 months.
At least 20% of Gartner’s IT customers are expected to feel pressure to act due to these trends. This makes them generally applicable to CEOs’ strategic goals and those of digital, IT, and technology executives.
Identify if the trends bring possibilities and hazards to your firm’s strategic path. You will have to determine how each trend will affect each organization differently. Identifying this will assist you in creating valuable roadmaps. The roadmap will allow your firm to expand steadily and sustainably while outperforming its rivals.
Technological trends for 2023
Optimization is increasing the dependability of IT systems, enhancing data-driven decision-making, and preserving the inherent authenticity of AI systems.
- Digital Immune System
A digital immune system (DIS) integrates techniques and tools from observability, chaotic engineering, auto-remediation, site reliability engineering, and software supply chain security to improve the resilience of goods, services, and systems. A DIS gives your company a framework for mitigating possible risks. It leverages mistakes as teaching moments to improve customer and user experiences that are robust to setbacks.
- Applied Observability
To enable the shortest latency between action and response and proactive planning of management decisions, applied observability is the practical use. Observed data in interconnected approaches that integrate across business functions and operations teams are involved.
Enterprises can make future decisions more quickly and accurately because of applied observability. By using this method, we can decrease response latency and improve the company’s real-time operations.
- AI Trust, Risk and Security Management (AI TRiSM)
AI demands novel approaches to managing the trust, risk, and security that are not possible with traditional controls. The model’s security, privacy, and dependability are all ensured by new AI TRiSM features.
Trends in scalability include boosting the speed of product delivery, accelerating vertical offers, and allowing connection everywhere.
- Industry Cloud Platforms
By combining cloud services often purchased individually into pre-integrated yet configurable (composable) industry-relevant solutions, industrial clouds add value for enterprises. They can improve organizational agility, speed up innovation, and shorten time to value.
- Platform Engineering
Forward-thinking businesses have started to create operating platforms between the user and the supportive services they depend on to decrease friction for their vital jobs. Platform engineering enhances the developer experience and speeds up the delivery of digital content.
- Wireless-Value Realization
The combination of several wireless technologies will result in a technical basis that is more affordable, dependable, and scalable while also requiring less capital investment. It encourages the development of new wireless protocols in the future, as well as more wireless usage. A variety of wireless capabilities supports digital business.
Trends by pioneers include facilitating the transformation of company models, rethinking interactions with consumers and workers, and expediting methods for entering new virtual markets.
A superapp is a mobile application that gives access to other independently developed miniapps while still offering a core functionality to end users (such as clients, partners, or workers). The superapp is designed like a platform to provide standardized and unique app experiences.
- Adaptive AI
The benefit of operationalized AI is the capacity to quickly build, deploy, adapt, and manage AI across many organizational contexts. It is essential to create AI models which can self-adapt in production or even less restrictive AI engineering pipelines, given the technical complexity and the need for quicker time to market.
The metaverse is a technological breakthrough comprised of several technology topics and trends. These developments are expected to present businesses from various sectors and use cases with fresh opportunities and difficulties.
The universal trend that sets a business apart is sustainable technology. When a company incorporates sustainable technology into its operations, it shows commitment and indicates that they are the safer option.
A set of approaches known as sustainable technology improves material and energy efficiency and facilitates corporate sustainability through technologies. Through applications, software, markets, and other means, the company supports its clients in becoming more sustainable. The areas to concentrate on are transparency, analytics, renewable energy, and others. Greater operational and financial success might be produced by investments in sustainable technologies while presenting fresh growth opportunities.
