In the coming year, cutting edge technology will be deployed in the software development process.
With the increase in online businesses, the development of websites and apps, a shift has been observed regarding the development of software. Disruptive technologies and new software development tools are getting to enhance the functioning and security of the software. With COVID-19, the demand across businesses and organizations to carry out operations with efficiency and efficacy has increased, hence cutting-edge technologies are getting deployed in software deployment. Henceforth, the following trends will shape the software development trends in the year 2021.

Integration of RPA bots during Software Development
Automation is thriving at the pace of innovation across all sectors globally. With a limited workforce to continue operations, BFSI and the healthcare sector have automated the redundant documentation, to apply human skills in important and urgent tasks. Due to its robust system, the incorporation of RPA will bolster software development in the year 2021.

Big data analytics in software development
Businesses and organizations across the industry have been utilizing big data to gain insights and understand trends in the coming year. With the incorporation of Hadoop and Apache Spark, the data analysis space across software development will be enhanced. In the coming year, big data analytics will foster the software development space.

Integrating AI into the Software Development
Artificial Intelligence is recognized to be amongst the major technology striving innovation across the industry. With a booming adoption of AI across, AI-integrated software will enhance operations across businesses. This will be specifically beneficial for web portals or online shops, for analysing customer behaviour.

Integration of Blockchain
Blockchain is still gaining momentum across sectors. Termed as a digital ledger it ensures transparency. Incorporating Blockchain in software development processes, will aid in thwarting fraud, and install advanced security features during the business transaction.

Integration of the Internet of Things in Software Development
The use of IoT will shift from building devices integrated with sensors to incorporating IoT in software development. By integrating IoT sensors in the software development process the engineers will be able to scale to their programming skills without any hindrance.

Rise of Native App Development
Owing to their increase in demand amongst software development companies, they would be amongst the fastest growing software development trend in the year 2020. Native Apps supports specific machines. It enhances the user experience and increases the flawless performance of the app across sectors.

Improvement in Continuous Integration of Software Development
This allows decreasing the cycle of feature delivery, making bug fixing frequent and effective and establishing flexibility in the software development process.

Software Development to be Cloud-Centric
Owing to the remote working norm, cloud technology has surpassed its users compared to last year. It is heavily deployed across various sectors. In the forthcoming future, the software development will be more cloud-centric, will all the data during the software development process getting stored in the cloud.

Shift towards DevSecOps
Undoubtedly DevOps makes the software development process easier. However in the future, along with handling the operations of software, the development team will also maintain security testing, without any help from the security expert.

Cross-Platform and Hybrid Development
This new trend will help reflect revolution across the software development process in the coming year. Like the name suggests that the software will be developed in a hybrid manner so that the coding process across mobile platforms will be a compromise between functionality and time-to-market.
