The Info-Tech Studies Group’s Transportation Technology Trends 2022 Report examines research on cutting-edge technology and cybersecurity advances in the transportation industry. The new research talks about how technological advancements are affecting transportation businesses’ operations and efficiencies.
The transportation sector is managing pandemic recovery efforts while contending with a lack of trained workers and elevated market expectations and demands.
In the upcoming months, information technology (IT) executives and leaders in the transportation sector should keep an eye out for the following three cutting-edge trends:
1. Implementing intelligent automation
The issue of a driver shortage in the transportation industry can be helped by automation. Automation is a two-edged sword, too, and as the number of edge devices rises, there is a chance that the assault surface may grow.
2. Using analytics to support decision-making
Analytics can be used by IT leaders to create a data strategy that is in line with growth and business objectives. Without adequate data regulation and architecture, trained data analytics personnel, or both, organisations run the danger of having low-quality data, which can prevent them from taking advantage of opportunities to increase revenue.
3. A stronger emphasis on cybersecurity
The transport sector is one of the most lucrative targets for ransomware attacks, and cyberattacks on key infrastructure rank as one of the biggest global risks. The transportation landscape has become significantly more digitalized, and new or more endpoint devices are being used, which has created new opportunities for cyberattacks. Organizations may reduce cyberthreats, adhere to industry and government standards, and lessen the financial effect of a breach by implementing the most recent security best practises and technological solutions. The security posture of passenger and goods transportation enterprises must be improved; thus IT leaders must have strong risk management processes, security maturity evaluations, and roadmap plans in place.
