Gartner's strategic tech trends for 2021 turn pragmatic - CIO Dive | The Marteq Alert |
Privacy-enhancing computation
This technology maintains the security and privacy of data in use, beyond existing and standardized data-at-rest security controls. Technology candidates for more privacy include instances where sensitive data — such as personal data, data monetization or fraud analytics — are processed or transferred, according to Gartner.  

By 2025, the research firm expects half of large organizations to process data in "untrusted environments and multiparty data analytics use cases" using privacy-enhancing computation. 


Organizations can use hyperautomation to "rapidly identify, vet and automate" business and IT processes, a need heightened by the pandemic. By redesigning operations and using hyperautomation technologies, organizations can lower operating costs by 30% by 2024, according to Gartner.
