From the rise of the metaverse, to the collection of first-party data and the adoption of headless websites, 2021 has been an enormous year of change in the digital space with no signs of slowing down in 2022. WP Engine’s Country Manager, ANZ, Mark Randall shares his top 2022 web predictions:
The consumer web will invade Space Travel
While space travel still seems like an exclusive topic reserved for the top 1% of humanity, simple server technologies and concepts such as headless will be used in 2022 to progress space endeavours by connecting people both on the ground and in orbit.
Individuals will take back control with Web 3.0
We’ve lived through Web 1.0 and Web 2.0 and are now entering Web 3.0, characterised by a fairer Internet which enables all individuals to be a sovereign of their own personal data through the rise of edge computing, decentralised data networks and artificial intelligence.
All eCommerce will be Headless
Headless eCommerce is the future of digital sales. Any eCommerce what does not adopt this decoupled system will be at a disadvantage.
We will interact with the Metaverse more than ever before
2022 has seen an increase in AR and VR experiences on the web and an immense fascination with the metaverse. In 2022, all players on the web will develop their own slice of the metaverse for all things, business, eCommerce and beyond.
Consumers will demand increased human experiences in tech
If the pandemic has taught us one thing, it’s that now more than ever, people matter. For brands to succeed they must understand the value of human connection and interaction and replicate this in their digital services.
