What is Cutting-Edge Technology?
Cutting-edge technology (also known as leading-edge or state-of-the-art technology) are technological solutions, machines, devices, services, techniques, or achievements that employ the most current and high-level IT developments. New cutting-edge technology helps the leading and innovative IT industry organizations to come to business, technological and programming breakthroughs.
Examples of Cutting-Edge Technologies
Let’s look at some examples of cutting-edge technology and see how they benefit companies in various industries.
By now, AI, ML, AR, and VR technologies are widely used in such niches as entertainment, medicine, banking and finance, automotive, repair and maintenance, quality assurance, design and assembly, immersive training, car, and airplane simulators:
- In healthcare, AI helps to increase clinical efficiency and accuracy, boost diagnosis speed, improve patient outcomes and facilitate their recovery with precision medicine and robotics surgery. It also helps to get rid of the long queues to the doctor and monotonous paperwork thanks to chatbots and NLP applications able to understand and classify clinical documentation;
- In telecommunications, the latest software technologies implied in self-optimizing networks (SONs) like Netflix allows gaining insight into customer behavior and predict industry trends, improve and specify customer experiences, and optimize 5G network performance. Experts at McKinsey say that about 66% of telco organizations expect to integrate AI and ML into their processes within the next two years, compared to only 37% in 2021.
- Insurance and financial companies use AI and ML-based chatbots and workflow automation solutions to digitalize their claims processing, personalize customers’ experience and create user-based insurance services, improve risk analysis, and better detect fraud and money laundering, which altogether helps to differentiate their services in a broad marketplace.
- The automotive industry has transformed greatly in the past few years thanks to AI and ML adoption across the industry. Combined with the implementation of electric and autonomous vehicles, and predictive maintenance models, this industry has now far better KPIs, operational outcomes, and overall profitability than even 5 years ago with Tesla as a key player.
- The energy sector adopted AI and ML cutting-edge technologies together with the new ways of producing, storing, delivering, and using energy changing. This has also happened due to global climate concerns, changed market drivers, and significant technological advancements. Now energy companies from all over the world use AI and ML for developing intelligent power plants, shortening consumption and costs, developing predictive maintenance models, optimizing field operations, as well as improving energy trading.
Single-Tenant Cloud Solutions
Speaking about the hottest tech trends, the first place Fively will give to the use of single-tenancy, which we will implement in our SaaS (software-as-a-service) software delivery models. It is a cutting-edge cloud architecture of 2022 in which a single instance of a software application and supporting infrastructure serves only one customer (tenant). Here the hosting provider aids in managing the software instance, lending nearly full control to a single tenant at the same time. Thus, each piece of software may be purpose-built for the new tenant, and after the software is installed locally, tenants can typically customize the software to best suit what is needed for their environment.
The use of single-tenancy models have the following advantages:
- a higher level of user engagement and control
Single-tenant instances have proved to be more transparent and reliable, since performance is based on only one instance, instead of many from different tenants;
- more flexibility in addressing specific requirements
With this latest cutting-edge technology, all of a customer's data is separate, and a large degree of customization is possible for software and hardware instances;
- increased security due to independent data storage
Data is independent of other potential tenants with the same provider. Even if there is a data breach to one tenant with the same service provider, another tenant would be safe from the breach since data is stored in a separate instance;
- easy operability and backup ability
Isolated backups allow users to quickly enable recovery if there is a disaster and data is lost. Single-tenancy may also lend itself to migrating from a host environment if needed.
Remote Work Applications Development
With numerous travel bans and other restrictions related to the Covid-19 pandemic, it’s becoming more difficult for business owners to maintain processes at remote locations all over the world. Remote work application development is our cutting-edge technology that successfully solves this problem: it allows all the company’s personnel to operate at the needed location staying at HQ, and advise colleagues, partners, or customer personnel onsite. This technology not only provides you with a complete view of the service activities but allows you to fully guide the on-premise resources and services.
The advantages of using Fively remote work application solutions are:
- high-quality service in a shorter period

AR and VR
VR (Virtual Reality) is a digital environment generated by a machine, in most cases implemented as a head-mounted device (HMD), while AR (Augmented Reality) only “augments” the real-world experience with the help of cutting-edge software in the form of text, graphics, audio, and other virtual forms onto the physical environment, just like we can see in smartphones, tablets, and smart glasses.
According to the research by Capgemini, 75% of organizations with large-scale VR and AR implementations including giants such as Boeing, Siemens, and Volkswagen realized over 10% operational benefits. These companies are real giants, so if we convert this 10% to US dollars, we will get millions and even hundreds of millions.
This is possible due to such AR and VR benefits as:
- high engagement revolutionizing the ‘Try Before You Buy’ concept
This cutting edge technology allows customers to enjoy the content in a more immersive environment, create an emotional and perceptional connection with them, increasing their willingness to buy the product;
- introducing products to new target audiences
With the right VR and AR cutting edge software the presentation of your products or services comes to a much higher level, as you can show them from all possible sides, let customers “touch” them, and create a much more interactive shopping experience;
- increasing brand awareness via shares on social media platforms
They have the personalized characteristics of social media platforms, so users can experience the content from the first-hand subjective personal perspective and even unknown brands can strongly build their online presence by harnessing the power of AR and VR;
- generating detailed analytics for understanding users' behavior
