What’s a TechRadar?
And what’s in it for you?
Devoteam’s TechRadar is a mapping and categorisation of a set of emerging technologies that are on the horizon of the complex digital world. This tool will help you see the tech through the eyes of our experts so you can make informed decisions to best navigate your business challenges.

Understanding the Devoteam TechRadar
Devoteam TechRadar is segmented by what we consider as the biggest challenges to becoming a digital company. You can browse the sections that interest you the most to get our experts’ sharp views and check out their assessments when it comes to the maturity readiness of the technologies listed. They have been sorted as follows: hold, assess, trial and adopt.
The cloud is more than a technology. As centralised approaches can no longer handle the colossal amounts of information required today, the cloud is now a necessity for understanding complexity. Many of the solutions presented in this Tech Radar are part of the evolution of cloud services moving towards decentralisation in form of small blocks, microservices, containers and functions which are operated by increasingly autonomous teams.
To enable everyone to exploit the latest technologies and focus as much as possible on business issues, the vast majority of technologies in this Tech Radar all seek to make things easier. They do this through automation, AI, and user-friendly interfaces. But, what seems simple on the surface might be far more complex underneath.
Timing seems to be the most crucial aspect of any modern business product, especially with the rise of lean design and agile go-to-market strategies. Consequently, speed is the common denominator for the technologies in the Devoteam Tech Radar. With many of the featured technologies being open-source, we can expect that they will grow as fast as the community needs them to.
As technology affects all aspects of life, it is natural that all aspects of life should in turn affect technology. Technology is now expected to confront the sustainability issues our society faces. Sustainability continues to become a focus of tech players, regardless of their size.

Helping to shape our TechRadar was very interesting. Being able to connect with different people, discussing all kinds of technology, gave me great new insights into the state of the tech world. I hope this will have the same effect for you if you read the Tech Radar. And if you ever feel like discussing one of these items, let me know!

It is an opinionated guide meant to help companies navigate the challenges of tech. The information within the TechRadar is based on our expert view of emerging technologies that you should have on your radar in 2022. Our best tech leaders have compiled this list from their own market watch, where they’re always keeping an eye on the future, or from their day-to-day work and experience.
Devoteam’s TechRadar is not a market study, it’s sole aim is to provide you with the information that you need to make your own decision for the future of your business.
It is intended for tech professionals, aspiring talents, and complete beginners alike. Those who can get the most out of this tool are business leaders who have a need to gain an understanding of the technological options available to solve their business challenges.
The six segments of the Devoteam TechRadar (Digital Business & Products, Data-Driven Intelligence, Distributed Cloud, Business Automation, Trust & Cybersecurity, and Sustainability enabled by Digital) represent what Devoteam sees as the most crucial areas of business in the modern tech world. Each of them is an area in which we operate and focus our efforts to improve and expand digital capabilities for our customers.
Each of the technologies featured has been suggested by our community of tech leaders and that list has then been narrowed down to the top emerging technologies that we think all businesses should have on their radar. We assessed their technology readiness and determined each technology’s ring level, based on our opinion. This doesn’t mean that any of the technologies are good or bad. Something that may be “on hold” today can move to another ring next year.
The ring levels for the Devoteam TechRadar are as follows:
HOLD – Proceed with caution. We recommend waiting to see how the technology develops further.
ASSESS – Worth investigating to understand how it might affect your organisation.
TRIAL – Worth pursuing. You might want to try this technology on a beta project to understand how to develop this capability at scale.
ADOPT – We strongly believe that this technology should be adopted by the industry. We use it whenever appropriate in our projects.
The market moves so fast that it would be hard to have an exhaustive list, so we chose, for comprehensive purposes as well as space constraints, to focus on the ones that we feel are already or will be game-changers for businesses. There are plenty of technologies that we like and use all the time that aren’t on the Radar because they’ve already established themselves into a long-earned place in the market.
