2020 is considered as the significant year for online platforms. The Covid 19 pandemic, has increased the demand of the websites and mobile applications. A high shift has been observed towards digitalisation, which has introduced the disruptive technologies and modern software development tools.

In order to meet with the modern demands such as integration of modern trends and increase the security of the solutions, many development tools have been introduced by the experts. Undoubtedly, the latest trends have increased the user experience and have also provided an opportunity to witness a unique virtual era with RPA, Big data, Blockchain software development technologies

There are several Software development trends, which are reshaping the development industry. In this blog, let’s know about the cutting edge technologies, which are dominating the software development services in 2021.

Top Software Development Trends in 2021

Integration of RPA

RPA ( Robotic Process Automation) refers to the automation process, it is the best innovation that can be witnessed across all sectors worldwide. Apart from this, it is expected that this trend will grow more in the coming 5 years and a robust based system.

According to, Gartner found that robotic process automation (RPA) is the fastest growing category in enterprise software. So perhaps it shouldn’t come as a surprise that UiPath, a leading startup in the space, announced a $225 million Series E today on an eye-popping $10.2 billion valuation.

RPA excludes all the repetitive tasks and offers automation processes, which helps to save a huge amount of time and also exclude human based errors. It is considered as the most promising technology for today’s business and also used as a widely used resource across many large enterprises. It is also expected that in coming years, it will automate the processes more and also sort the complex enterprise based challenges as ever before.

This technology also helps to increase the business productivity and offers end to end automation workflows with the motive to benefit all types of businesses.

Big Data

Big data is considered as the most emerging and trending technology of software development. It ensures entities to save money, optimise efficiency, and increase revenue by storing and managing data in an accurate manner. This technology helps enterprises to sort the complex business challenges.

It can be defined as the technology, which helps to sort the complex traditional challenges of data storage. Big data is designed to analyse, process, extract the information from the large data sets of the organisations. For many enterprises, this technology has turned as a boon, as data management is the most crucial stage for the organisations.

The advanced functionalities of Big Data technology allows to analyse the real time data and take actions accordingly, which helps to reduce the risk in the coming future.

Cloud Centric Software

Cloud technology has surprised its users and during this pandemic it has turned as a boon for the development sector. In the coming years, Cloud centric apps will be heavily deployed in various sectors and the data will be stored and managed with it. Henceforth, it will turn as a trending technology for software development. This technology helps in business continuity, collaboration efficiency, and has full access to automatic updates.

Top Benefits of Cloud Computing

  • Improve Staff Productivity
  • Reduce total Cost
  • Always Up to date
  • Offers backup, and fully secure
  • Scalable and Flexible
  • Rapid and robust development

Integrating AI to the Software

AI plays a crucial role in the software development process. It is considered as an innovation technology across several industries. This is turning as a trend as it helps businesses to increase their efficiency and resource productivity. Now, advanced functionalities will also be able to predict or analyse customer behaviour.

Blockchain in Software

Blockchain is gaining popularity across the world. This technology is termed as a digital ledger and also introduces the smart contracts to the users. It is based on a decentralized system, which helps to improve the security and efficiency of the processings. It allows to secure the data in an advanced way and with the integration of this technology, to store and manage data has turned into easier and more reliable.

Data management is also secure with this technology as it doesn’t require any third party interference, including agent or bank. None of the parties is able to modify or reverse the data, the entry with Blockchain is irreversible.

Emerging Technologies in Software Development


Software development industry is a rapidly growing sector, and in 2020 many advancements have been observed in its development process. In the upcoming year, it is expected that in 2021, modern trends will mark their presence and offer next generation experience to the users. Here, in this blog, we have mentioned all the essential dominating trends of the upcoming year that help enterprises to offer endless opportunities.
