22 Trends for 2022
We saw that digital could change the world in 2020. 2021 showed us how fast that change could happen.
Over the course of this year, 5G really took off, we saw the launch of more than a few billionaires into space, and even the discovery of a whole new universe with the rise of the metaverse. Yeesh! It’s been a wild ride.
As the world speeds up around us, powered by a host of advanced new technologies, it’s safe to say that even at DEPT® we were staggered by the sheer innovation that digital offered this year.
What’s next seems almost beyond our imaginations— well, almost, but not quite. Here’s a sneak peak at the top 22 trends we’re expecting in 2022.
