8 Trends and Challenges in Software Development to look into for the next two years

By Nascode, a full-cycle app and software development company focused on assisting businesses achieve success at any stage - from software development to market launch. 

Software development is changing and evolving at a rapid pace. We see significant advancements in the sector with each new year. The annual value of the software development industry is increasing at an exponential rate, and it is expected to grow from $593 billion per year to nearly $737 billion by 2023, a significant increase. Nonetheless, given the current rate of technological development, we should not be surprised.
In this article, we will explore some of the new trends and challenges accompanying this massive annual growth rate. This article will assist developers in producing consistently successful products by anticipating and incorporating them into their software development process or product.

1.    Artificial Intelligence
AI is a rapidly developing trend and a hot topic in the Software Development industry. In recent years, artificial intelligence (AI) has taken the world by storm. AI art generators, AI music, and AI-assisted coding have all grown in popularity.
The most significant AI development in the Software Development industry is AI-assisted coding. Using certain extensions, AI-assisted coding can automatically complete and suggest a Developer's code. AI will significantly disrupt the development space, and developers must be prepared to take full advantage of it.

2.    Augmented Reality/VR
Machine learning and artificial intelligence are being used to improve existing products and develop new ones using AR and VR innovations. In the coming years, we can expect to see improved web technologies that incorporate AI, such as WebXR, improved AI libraries, and more technologically advanced AI products in general. Including an AR or VR component in your new products can be a great way to stimulate the interest of investors and the media.

3.    Web 3.0
The push toward Web 3.0 has the potential to completely transform how we use the internet - Web 3.0 will be the World Wide Web's successor to the current Web 2.0 iteration. Web 3.0 is still in development, but it will be a fully decentralized open web with greater utility and functionality than its predecessor.
Web 3.0 will make it easier to implement Artificial Intelligence, which fits in nicely with the trends we've discussed. Apple's Siri is an example of a Web 3.0 application that searches and delivers results using speech recognition technologies and AI. Web 3.0 can help you improve your products by incorporating artificial intelligence and machine learning to provide a more personalized user experience.

4.    Demand for Cloud-Based Services

Cloud-based services are becoming increasingly popular year after year. Storage is growing, costs are dropping, demand is increasing at an exponential rate, and hardware-based systems are permanently migrating to the cloud. New software development services should take advantage of the cloud-based boom and ensure that their products benefit from it.

5.    Blockchain
Blockchain - the peer-to-peer network on which Bitcoin and many other cryptocurrencies operate - will develop many uses in the software development field. Most people are unaware that the Blockchain has many uses outside of cryptocurrency.
With the move toward Web 3.0, Blockchain could be used to transform the software development industry by providing decentralized products without the use of intermediaries. This can have numerous advantages for consumers. Blockchain technology will evolve and expand in the coming years, and we can expect to see it used in an increasing number of software development products.

6.    Development Expectations and Outcome
One challenge that the industry faces is the requirement for developers to constantly adapt to changes and new technologies. Each new wave of development brings with it new practices and technology that must be learned, forcing manufacturers and developers to adapt their products to new principles.

7.    Design Influences
Maintaining a distinct product design will continue to be difficult, especially when dealing with the design influence of multiple competing stakeholders. With so much competition in the software development industry, developers must ensure that their product is unique and not copied from other products.

8.    Data Privacy
Data regulation and product privacy requirements are becoming increasingly complex, posing a significant challenge to the software development industry. Users and governments are increasingly pushing for red tape-filled regulatory landscapes.
These new landscapes make it difficult for products to conform to data privacy standards. When developing new products, developers must be aware of the most recent data privacy trends in one or more countries and adapt their products to ensure they meet the industry's goals. Noncompliance with data privacy laws can have serious ramifications for developers and organizations.

9.    Keeping Pace with Innovation
As each year brings new waves of technological advancements, product designers and developers must ensure that they keep up with the industry's innovative developments. Products must now be designed to keep up with the rapid pace of innovation. Organizations that provide their developers with current training and professional development will be well-positioned as time goes on.

The future of software engineering is quite uncertain. Developers must be aware of the industry trends and challenges outlined in this article in order to be successful in the coming years. Companies must be aware of these trends and challenges in order to train and prepare their developers to provide innovative and industry-changing products. Developers and organizations that are well-prepared for the future will be the most successful in the ever-expanding and growing software development market.
