Quantum Computing

The subsequent top technology trend in 2021 is Quantum Computing. The concept of this technology revolves around the phenomena of quantum, such as quantum entanglement and superposition.

Quantum Computing is aggressively used in various domains such as:


The technology deserves our thanks because it has contributed a lot to stopping the spread of the Corona Virus. Further, it played a considerable role in the preparation of life-saving vaccines against this virus.

Words are literally not enough for their immense performance in the pandemic situation. The features that make this technology trending are monitoring, analysis, and acting on data even without knowing the source.

Banking & Finance

Quantum Computing is used in the banking and finance domain, for the protection of transactions. Also, it reduces credit risks and eases the detection of fraudulent activities.


For optimization, quantum computers are excellent and with the approach of quantum computing, international and national shipping became more comfortable, quick, and reliable.

The phenomena manage extreme complexities and variables involved in routing. As a result, we get efficient packing of parcels and their delivery across the globe.

You will be actually surprised to know that Quantum Computers are way faster than our regular computers, and the foremost brands like AWS, Google, Microsoft, Splunk are orienting towards it.

If you are interested in this technology, you must have a strong command of Linear Algebra, Quantum Mechanics, Information Theory, Profitability, and Machine Learning.

Robotic Process Automation

Robotics always grabs attention whenever we discuss top trending technologies in 2021. The technology was available way before, and because of the extraordinary approach, it still comes under the latest technologies.

Also, RPA (Robotic Process Automation) is adopted aggressively by companies for dealing with data, processing transactions, and applications interpretation. As the technology follows automation, it helps in email replies automatically and further supports all recurring activities.

By mastering this technology, you enable yourself to get high-paying jobs because RPA is creating new jobs rapidly. The available positions for RPA technology are:

  • RPA Architecture
  • RPA Analyst

Edge Computing

Edge computing is another trending concept of 2021. You must have heard about cloud computing whose major players are Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure. Now the cloud computing is not an emerging technology, but Edge is.

Further, leading IT companies are also following the trend aggressively to build applications. Edge Computing eliminates the shortcomings of cloud computing.

We know data is increasing day by day, and technocrats were not comfortable with cloud solutions under some specific conditions. Afterward, Edge Computing is found that solve all the problems bypassed in Cloud Computing.

With the increase of IoT (Internet of Things), Edge Computing increases. Experts expect, by the year 2022, the market for Edge Computing will reach $6.72 billion approximately. Based on the above data, jobs are in line for this tending technology of 2021.


In our previous article, we have already shared information about blockchain technology. As we are discussing new technology 2021 in India, how can we forget it? You must have heard of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin.

Blockchain technology is behind such concepts. Nowadays, NFT has become a point of discussion that has given a new picture to the digital assets such as Art, Graphics, audio, etc. If you are willing to know more about NFT, follow our NFT blogs.

Increasing passion for blockchain technology has increased job opportunities as well. It is the reason blockchain comes under the list of trending technologies in 2021. It supports secure transactions because the data is available in a chain format, and there is no provision to update the previous block.

Besides, the technology follows a consensus-driven approach that further supports that no single entity can take the overall control. One of the most influential things about blockchain developers is their salary. If you are keen to make your career in this technology, you will be happy to know their average yearly salary is INR 496K.

To become a successful blockchain developer, emphasize the skills of OOPS (object-oriented programming) Flat & Relational Databases, Networking, Web Development, Database structure, and Programming.

Cyber Security

Cyber security is one of the new technologies of 2021, and knowing about it will help you in your professional career. The technology protects the system, servers, mobile devices, gadgets, etc. from malicious attacks.

We all are totally aware of internet frauds, and cyber security plays an important role here. Let’s know the hot technology of cyber security, that has minimized the risks of hacking.

Context-Aware Behavioral Analytics:

Behavioral analytics enables the system to identify real-time threats. It keeps monitoring the activities happening over the network, and whenever any suspicious thing comes, it immediately creates an alert.

For example: Suppose data is transmitting at an average pace but suddenly its speed increases, and it can be a cybercrime. In such cases, behavioral analytics helps.

Various methods of behavioral analytics are:

  • Bioprinting
  • Mobile Location Tracking
  • Behavioral Profiles
  • Third-Party Big Data
  • External Threat Intelligence


This is the most demanding technology trend that has created chaos in the world. The concept is entirely different, and it has brought a revolution to the internet world. Now we are moving towards web 3.0.

Metaverse is a virtual space that is the same as our natural world. Here the users will be given identity, and the term will be “Avatar”. You can work in Metaverse as you do in real life. You will have complete control of your Avatar.
