The Future of Apps report commissioned by F5 Networks highlights major trends and projections that will significantly impact society. The findings cover the evolution of artificial intelligence and machine learning, as well as the need for new collaborative models to support heightened transparency demands. It also charts the rise of new app interfaces, including augmented and virtual reality, and the potential-rich influence of blockchain technologies and edge computing. The report indicates how the balance of power is shifting away from businesses, creating immense opportunities for those capable of delivering apps with speed, adaptive functionality and security.
