U.S. Tech industry challenges 2019

Market incorporation

Technologies are being developed at an accelerated rate without being able to fully incorporate them into existing products. Two notable examples of developments with tremendous investment and effort involved, but with negligible impact on the market so far are Artificial Intelligence (AI) and voice control. Experts at Infiniti Research expect this gap to grow in 2019, in which case companies in the tech industry will be in desperate need to reduce it.

Talent acquisition

Talent drives innovation and execution of new technologies. However, finding the right talent is one of the biggest challenges facing the U.S. tech industry right now. One of the key reasons behind this being, that talent is now globally distributed than before, and it is challenging to retain talent due to the rising competition in global tech industries. Companies in the tech industry that can be efficient with remote teams and build strong cultures have greater chances of success.

Data governance, security, and privacy

2019 is expected to be a critical year for data governance, security, and privacy in the tech industry. Both within and outside the enterprise, these factors will have major implications on AI utilization. Heavily unbalanced regulation greatly limits its applications and can cause a major setback in business innovation of companies in the tech industry.

Issues in cloud network

Companies in the tech industry are increasingly moving their workload and other critical data to cloud infrastructure. However, the network could pose some major setbacks here. Every organization has a set amount of bandwidth or the budget to spend on it. The rising amount of data that is being generated by users, IoT, and AI applications could lead to major network issues to store and manage this data.

Estimating market demand

Companies in the tech industry who base their product development on what they anticipate would be the future market demand could undergo severe risks in their business. This could be primarily due to the fact that the expected market demand does not materialize. To avoid the risk of failure, it is vital for the U.S. tech companies to be more measured in decision-making relating to the current market demand and how it is likely to change over time.
