Overview: The 10 most important tech trends

What are the most important tech trends for the next few years? We provide an overview based on Gartner’s 10 most important strategic technology trends for 2023.


What are the strategic goals of your company? Do you want to save costs, improve margins or grow? Perhaps you are planning to switch to a new business model?

Whatever your goals, technology is key. To help you know when and where technology trends will potentially have an impact, the US research and consulting company Gartner provides an annual list of the most important strategic technology trends. This list is intended to provide executives with guidance for the next three years, regardless of the exact needs of their business.


Top 10 Tech Trends according to Gartner

For the years from 2023, Gartner sees four key priorities that companies can address with the help of various technology trends:

  • Optimizing resiliency, operations, or trust
  • Scaling vertical solutions, product delivery or in general
  • Pioneering in engaging customers, expedited responses or opportunities
  • Pursue sustainable technology solutions

Based on these four priorities, Gartner names and categorizes the 10 most important strategic technology trends for 2023 as follows:

Tech Trend #1: Digital Immune System
Tech Trend #2: Applied Observability
Tech Trend #3: AI Trust, Risk, and Security Management (AI TRISM)

Trend #4: Cloud Platforms for Industry
Trend #5: Platform Engineering
Trend #6: Wireless Value Realization

Tech Trend #7: Super Apps
Tech Trend #8: Adaptive AI
Tech Trend #9: Metaverse

Sustainable technology solutions
trend #10: Sustainable technology


Create an individual roadmap

It is important at this point to consider which technologies will be most relevant to your business. Of course, these do not have to be implemented all at once, but step by step.

Basically, Gartner posits the implementation of sustainable technology solutions (trend #10) for now, the optimization (trends 1 to 3) for this year or next, the scaling (trends 4 to 6) in 1 to 2 years and the pioneer achievement (Trends 7 to 9) in 2 to 3 years.

In the next few weeks we will be presenting the ten technology trends according to Gartner in detail on our blog and thus support you in creating an individual roadmap for your company.
