Globant’s 2024 Tech Trends Report identifies five key areas where this transformation will be most pronounced:

  1. Artificial Intelligence (AI): Previously, big businesses leveraged AI primarily for cost optimization and efficiency. However, the untapped potential of AI in elevating customer experiences is immense. 2024 will witness a surge in the adoption of AI across various sectors, with organizations using AI tools to differentiate their customer experiences. Those who invested in AI in 2023 will likely reap significant benefits in enhancing customer interactions and resource management.
  2. Quantum Computing: This year marks a turning point in the understanding and application of quantum computing. While its potential impacts are being recognized across various industries, only a few forward-thinking organizations will begin to actively integrate it into their operations. Fields rich in data and computing needs, like finance and pharmaceutical research, are expected to be early adopters, exploring the groundbreaking capabilities of quantum computing.
  3. Robotics: The robotics industry is at a critical juncture, evolving beyond traditional manufacturing applications. The development of versatile, AI-powered robots will lead to the rise of Robots-as-a-Service (RaaS) models. These robots, often non-humanoid and task-optimized, will find applications in various fields, including delivery services, hospitality, and entertainment.
  4. Blockchain: Blockchain technology will continue to be a vital player, particularly in the sciences where tracability and data security are paramount. While its broader adoption hinges on support from governments and public agencies, blockchain remains a key topic in discussions about technological innovation.
  5. Immersive Experiences: Contrary to some scepticism, interest in immersive 3D experiences remains robust. 2024 is expected to see sustained interest in the metaverse, especially with the anticipated launch of the Apple Vision Pro in Q1. Major players in the tech industry are investing heavily to integrate these immersive experiences into reserach, indicating a strong future for this technology.

Globant see 2024 as a landmark year in technological advancements. With AI, quantum computing, robotics, blockchain, and immersive experiences leading the charge, the focus is clearly on technologies that not only advance business operations but also enrich human experiences and capabilities. This synergy between technological innovation and human-centric applications heralds a new era in the tech world, promising a future where technology and humanity progress hand in hand.
