These essential buzzwords will shape the professional landscape in 2024 and beyond, giving you a deeper insight into where to invest your efforts in the new year and beyond.

Without further ado, let’s start our journey of the new technology words for 2024.

1. Distributed Cloud

The first in our essential rundown of tech buzzwords for next year is distributed cloud. Exciting and futuristic, the concept of computer vision took the industry by storm last year. The concept is based on computing devices or programs gaining the ability to extract detailed information from visual images. And building on this most essential of 2024 tech buzzwords, the distributed cloud is here to take the concept of computer vision a step further. Whether you need to conduct quick online data analysis or gather enormous volumes of data, this concept will make a significant impact in the future.

The distributed cloud offers businesses or organizations across industries the ability to store, access, and interact with acquired data using a more dynamic as well as a flexible range of options.

This new and evolved means of cloud computing can assist with the protection and management of computer vision data and intelligence and comes in many forms, including:

  • Cloud BI: Advanced monitoring, dashboard reporting, and visualizing data through advanced cloud solutions and BI create sustainable business development.
  • Internet of Things (IoT) edge cloud: Distributed services that connect and interact directly with edge services.
  • 5G mobile edge cloud: The management and delivery of any cloud-based services linked to a 5G or mobile carrier service.
  • On-premises public-style cloud: A branch of cloud distribution that stores, protects, and manages all of a business’s on-site or internal data.
  • Metro-area computing cloud: Distributed cloud services that are segmented into nodes to serve an entire city or metropolitan area, managing a range of services and residents.
  • Global network edge-based cloud: A form of distributed cloud computing designed to interact and integrate with global network-based infrastructures such as routers, hubs, and mobile towers.

As you can see, the distributed cloud covers a range of innovations and concepts, giving it a variety of use cases and services. As such, it’s amongst the new technology buzzwords you can’t afford to ignore in 2024.

2. Artificial Intelligence (AI)

Already in our shortlist of last year, artificial intelligence is on the front scene for 2024. Scientists have been working on AI for years, and in the coming years, we will see some more new applications.

AI refers to the science and engineering of making intelligent machines or software that have a human-like ability to make decisions and to improve over time by learning from experience

AI refers to the autonomous intelligent behavior of software or machines that have a human-like ability to make decisions and to improve over time by learning from experience. Currently, popular approaches include statistical methods, computational intelligence, and traditional symbolic AI.

There are a large number of tools used in AI, including versions of search and mathematical optimization, logic, methods based on probability and economics, and many others. In business intelligence, we are evolving from static reports on what has already happened to proactive analytics with a live dashboard assisting businesses with more accurate reporting. They indeed enable you to see what is happening at every moment and send alerts when something is off-trend.

An important part of AI comprises machine learning, and more specifically, deep learning – that trend promises more powerful and fast machine learning. An exemplary application of this trend would be Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) – the predictive analytics method of analyzing data. Neural networks create a system of interconnected layers, with each subsequent layer acting as a filter for more and more complex features that combine those of the previous layer. This feature hierarchy and the filters that model significance in the data, make it possible for the layers to learn from experience. Thus, deep nets can crunch unstructured data previously unavailable for unsupervised analysis.

You can see an application in BI with the datapine solution, which comprises an AI algorithm based on the most advanced neural networks for its alerts. That way, any anomaly is identified with high accuracy, as it learns from historical trends and patterns: every unexpected event will be notified, and an alert will be sent.

Some more examples of AI applications can be found in various domains. In 2024, we will see AI in combination with big data in healthcare. Heart monitors, health monitors, and EEG signal processing algorithms are already on the frontline of research. Likewise, major advances have been made in the field of self-driving cars, as major businesses, like Tesla and Volvo, are competing to take over the market. Volvo has announced that their autonomous car drivers will have the option to “eat, sleep, work, watch a movie, relax, do whatever.”

Another direction in which AI is heading is the introduction of a truly smart smartphone that can make stuff for us. For example, you could tell your phone about your planned trip, and it would book the most convenient flight, hotel, and rental car for you. Likewise, last year was the year of digital assistants: Alexa and Cortana, all of which have taken the consumer market by storm. It will not stop in 2024, as their development is never-ending; Google Now and Siri have become ubiquitous, thanks mainly to the voice recognition software becoming much more powerful over the past year.

Siri, Cortana, and Alexa all share similar roles – enabling us to live a step closer to the futuristic notions of AI assistants who can do anything we need on a whim. Who knows, maybe AI will even have the potential to make or at least help us with our strategic business decisions in the near future.

Generative AI

Arguably, one of the most talked about AI developments to watch out for in 2024 is generative artificial intelligence (GenAI). It already revolutionized the industry in 2023 with tools like ChatGTP or DALL-E and is expected to keep evolving in the coming years to become a huge business asset. 

Generative AI leverages deep-learning capabilities to produce various types of content pieces based on human input, including text, images, video, code, and more. The AI models learn from raw data being fed to them to generate content that can significantly facilitate people's lives and make businesses more efficient. For example, by designing new products, targeting marketing opportunities, writing codes, or finding errors in existing ones, among many, many other uses. 

This technology comes at a time when decision-makers are so fed up with operational decisions that don’t have time to think about innovation. Using GenAI in a business context will help automate several processes, leaving more time to focus on growth opportunities. Companies that extract the maximum potential from this technology are set to gain a big competitive advantage. Even with concerns that these kinds of solutions will diminish the need for human creativity, the most creative and efficient human input will be able to make the models generate the best results. Therefore, learning from them and integrating key players in the process is a must to succeed.  

GenAI is set to open the AI landscape even more in the next year. An increasing number of organizations will leverage generative AI to create more immersive content and multimedia marketing experiences while making vital improvements to the healthcare industry by empowering medical professionals to access comprehensive 3D X-rays of patient bone issues or tumors, for example.

That being said, just like many other AI-related innovations, generative AI is not free of security risks. Tools like ChatGTP take data from the entire internet, including copyrighted material or fake news. This represents one of the biggest shortcomings of this technology, as there is not a 100% guarantee that the input being delivered is entirely correct or unbiased. GenAI models have no way of understanding if the content they are generating is incorrect as they just take and process the data they are given. As a solution, Open AI’s GTP-4 has started to provide footnotes with sources to verify the content's accuracy. Still, security will always be a concern connected to AI, and we will discuss the topic in short below. 


While all the AI-driven applications we mentioned are making people's and companies lives easier, there is still a concern about the impact of AI technologies, especially regarding security. In that sense, a new framework aims to ensure AI Trust, Risk, and Security Management and mitigate these risks to comply with new regulations regarding using AI systems. Also known as AI TRiSM, it is a set of capabilities and technologies businesses from all industries adopt to ensure AI models governance, trustworthiness, security, and privacy for enterprises and end-users. 

The need for AI TRiSM is born out of the growing range of AI models and systems that businesses offer customers today. In many cases, these systems are so complex that not even the experts can understand them, leaving a big gap for security issues in the future. These issues can translate into privacy failures that can harm users as well as big financial and reputational losses for the organization, making the adoption of AI TRiSM processes even more relevant. In fact, Gartner states that, by 2026, organizations who adopt these practices will see their AI models achieve a 50% result improvement in terms of adoption, company goals, and user acceptance.

The future growth of AI is undeniable. The research firm Markets and Markets estimates that the AI market will grow from $150.2 billion in 2023 to $1,345.2 billion by 2030

AI is undoubtedly among the most prominent trends in technology to look out for. Gartner stated, “AI in the form of automated things and augmented intelligence is being used together with IoT, edge computing, and digital twins.” We will probably talk about AI as the megatrend of the century.

3. Sustainable Technology

Sustainable technology is expected to be one of the top technology trends in business for the coming year. As a key part of Gartner’s 2023 tech trends report, this concept is defined as a “framework of digital solutions that can enable environmental, social and governance (ESG) outcomes for the enterprise and its customers.” It can impact businesses in three key areas: internal IT and enterprise and customer operations. Internal IT means working with the right tools to deliver the best ESG outcomes. Enterprise operations refer to transparency regarding environmental impact and optimizing energy and material usage. And customer operations refers to delivering products and services to help customers meet their own sustainability goals.  

It cannot be denied that for a couple of years, many businesses have begun to take responsibility for their environmental impact due to social pressures regarding global warming and environmental care, especially by millennials, who are expected to become the biggest investors in these initiatives in the future. That said, the voluntary interest will become mandatory within the next year as financial regulators in the UK, EU, US, Canada, and others will mandate public companies to report on their carbon emissions. For this purpose, organizations will turn to ESG metrics and reporting to stay compliant with the new regulations. But, this will not come without challenges. 

According to Info-Tech's latest technology trends report, IT professionals are committed to tracking ESG initiatives and metrics but are not confident about how to do so. A high 43% of respondents say that their ESG reporting is inaccurate, while 46% say their carbon footprint reporting is even less accurate (see graph below).

In that sense, it is important for high-level executives to take charge and ensure the right tools and processes are implemented to develop a correct ESG reporting environment. Info-Tech advises implementing an ESG budget for 2024, assessing employees' capabilities to adapt to new reporting requirements, finding data gaps, and investing in the right tools to ensure alignment with the new ESG mandates as a great starting point for businesses. 

Sustainable Technology is one of the IT trends that are here to stay, and it is gaining traction worldwide. The International Sustainability Standard Board (ISSB) has already published two drafts in March 2022 that will serve as guidelines for regulators in different countries to model their new regulations. In the US, in 2023, companies with more than $700 million in the hands of public investors were expected to collect data and report on their climate impact by 2024. Smaller companies with public investment are expected to file in 2025 and 2026, depending on the size. In the EU, a Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive has been adopted since October 2022, and companies are expected to start reporting under it starting in 2024. Smaller enterprises have until 2026 to comply with the new requirements. 

Definitely one of the most important emerging technology trending keywords to look out for in 2024. 

4. Metaverse

If you have been on the internet or social media at all during 2023, then you probably heard about our coming buzzword. Initially coined as a sci-fi concept by writer Neal Stephenson in the early 1990s, the metaverse combines multiple technologies to create a digital world parallel to the physical world, in which social and economic activities are carried out. Users can interact with these digital ecosystems thanks to virtual and augmented reality technologies in different formats. On one hand, VR tools such as headsets, gloves, and even full-body tracking suits enable users to interact and fully immerse themselves in this virtual reality. On the other hand, AR is a bit less immersive as it combines the real and digital worlds into one. 

While corporations like Roblox have been using virtual experiences in video games for a few years now, the metaverse gained popularity after Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook, started talking about it in 2021. The year in which the company was rebranded as “Meta” with an announcement of a $10 billion investment into the concept. From there, multiple businesses from various industries, including fashion, music, video, and even real estate, started jumping into it, offering different products, services, and experiences inside this digital ecosystem. According to research, over 160 companies are currently working on metaverse projects. 

All things considered, it is not surprising that the metaverse industry is expected to grow to $2,961.55 billion in 2032, with social media and gaming companies setting themselves as pioneers in the field. Some of the biggest players in the industry today include Meta (Facebook), NVIDIA, Microsoft, Apple, Google, Roblox, NetEase, and Epic Games, among others. 

For 2024, the metaverse is expected to permeate even more industries, including the business world, where initiatives such as virtual workspaces might come as a solution for hybrid work where employees can connect and collaborate in a digital environment. The industrial metaverse is another business use case that is expected to thrive in 2024. 

In short words, the industrial metaverse uses smart devices and technologies to render immersive experiences that mimic real-life processes, making work in factories safer and more efficient. For example, a line worker can call an expert across the country using virtual reality glasses, or an engineer can simulate a structure in the digital landscape before actually building it. This segment is expected to reach nearly US$100 billion by 2030, almost tripling the consumer and enterprise segments of the metaverse. In fact, a recent survey by Deloitte showed that 92% of manufacturing executives are experimenting or implementing at least one metaverse-related use case.  

Another way in which the metaverse is expected to gain popularity in the coming year is through NFTs. Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are digital assets based on the same blockchain tech used by cryptocurrency. However, instead of money, an NFT can be anything from a piece of art, digital real estate, or a pair of sneakers. An NFT provides proof of ownership so the asset can be sold in the metaverse, with many big corporations already investing in it. For instance, Nike and Roblox collaborated to create “Nikeland,” a virtual space where users can play games and dress their avatars in virtual clothes. Other brands leading the way with NFTs include Coca-Cola, Gucci, Budweiser, Adidas, and Samsung, among others. 

As exciting as it sounds, the metaverse is still a new concept, and its long-term investment and security implications are still unclear. Gartner advises businesses to carefully assess and identify metaverse-inspired initiatives based on successful use cases across industries. Paired with that, establishing clear governance, security, and privacy policies beforehand will also serve as a security blanket for organizations wanting to jump into this trend that will rule the market in 2024. 

5. Spatial Computing

Following the same line as the metaverse, we will dive into the next concept of our tech buzzword list, spatial computing. This technology is defined as an intersection between the real and the digital world, where machines can perceive and interact with their surroundings using elements from virtual, augmented, and mixed realities. With the help of several technologies, including computing vision, sensor fusion, spatial mapping, and more, spatial computing devices can create a 3D model of the physical world and place virtual objects in it. For example, place a piece of furniture in your living room to see if you want to buy it. 

What makes this technology so valuable is its ability to understand the depth of the environment, which allows humans to interact naturally with virtual objects as if they were real. For example, a virtual object can be picked up and placed on a table or hidden behind a real object. Blurring the lines between the real and the digital world. 

On that same line, some devices have implemented an eye-tracking system that enables users to move or pick up an item just by looking at it. In an enterprise context, such as manufacturing, spatial computing devices also support voice commands to control the virtual space and facilitate operations. This last use-case is the one that is gaining more traction as businesses are relying upon spatial technologies to make factories safer, augment work instructions, and generate collaborative digital spaces for increased productivity and efficiency. 

Now, that all sounds quite similar to the metaverse definition we just provided above, right? Well, that is because they are incredibly similar. Some might even say the same thing. Let’s discuss that for a moment. 

The term spatial computing started to make noise online after Apple launched its brand new AR/VR-powered headset called “Apple Vision Pro,” branding it as a spatial computing product. While it was not the first company to launch such a product, it sparked a debate about the differences between the two concepts. Some said spatial computing was just a term used by companies that didn’t want to adopt the metaverse concept as it was too commercial; others said this new technology was just a subset of the metaverse, and others could find some differences in the use cases, pointing out that the metaverse can be considered the end experience and product, and spatial computing one of the technologies that allow for those experiences to be completed. One commenter even added: “A spatial computing-enabled experience might not be a metaverse one, and not all metaverse experiences use spatial computing.” 

The truth is both are about generating immersive digital experiences that merge the real and the digital world into one. Regardless, both concepts are still in their early development stages, and we can expect to see this debate continue over the next years. Maybe experts will end up considering them interchangeable concepts or just two subsets of a broader term. It is a very interesting topic that we will follow in 2024! 

6. Machine Customers

Next, in our IT buzzword list, we have machine customers, defined as “nonhuman economic actors that purchase goods and services in exchange for payment.” It can be anything from a smart refrigerator that makes your meal plans for you and orders your food from the supermarket to an autonomous car that knows when it needs to be filled with gas. Basically, any machine or smart device that you own could become a machine customer in the future. 

What makes machine customers fundamentally different than regular customers is mainly their efficiency and removal of emotion. Human customers can be more inconsistent, forgetful, or even fall into marketing tactics, while machines are programmed to follow a task, meaning they can avoid any unnecessary or impulsive purchases as no emotion is involved. Plus, machines can analyze massive amounts of data in a short period of time and learn from it to make smarter decisions, eliminating the risk of decision fatigue that humans have. 

Considering all that, it is clear that this buzzword will be a game changer. Currently, there are two types of customer-company interactions: person-to-person, for example, a human calling and speaking to another human, and person-to-machine, for example, a human interacting with a chatbot. Now, with the rise of machine customers, two new ways of interacting are considered: machine to person and machine to machine. These new ways of interacting are expected to keep growing, as experts say there are more machines with the potential to act as buyers than humans in the world. In fact, by 2030, executives believe that 25% of all customer purchases and business replenishment requests will be delegated to machines. 

In that sense, Gartner specifies three stages in the development of machine customers. The first stage, which we live in today, is where MCs are bound to human input; this means the human leads and the machine executes. Examples of this are technologies such as HP Instant Ink or Amazon Dash Replenishment, which act as co-customers for humans. In the second stage, the emerging phase, expected to happen in 2026, MCs will still be managed by humans, but the machine will be able to act on behalf of the human in selected tasks. In the third and final stage, predicted to happen in 2036, MCs will act entirely as autonomous customers, having enough intelligence to act independently and with a high level of discretion. 

Companies looking to dive into this trend should set up a machine customer investigation team and involve decision-makers from all areas of the organization to think of valuable use cases. Additionally, they should start defining and architecting all the resources needed to get MCs to work and train employees and customer-facing staff to deal with AI technology. 

This trend will keep growing quickly in the coming years and is expected to have a bigger impact than the arrival of e-commerce. Watch out for this exciting technology buzzword in 2024! 

7. Cybersecurity Mesh

The next of our essential IT industry buzzwords is cybersecurity mesh. In our increasingly hyper-connected digital world, sensitive data lives in many spaces and places. Cybercrime is a constant threat, and as such, businesses across industries will be ramping up their cybersecurity efforts in 2024.

Cyber attacks collectively cost an average of $2.9 million a minute to resolve, with a price tag of around $25 per minute to tackle organizational breaches. That’s a colossal dent in any business budget - the kind that can damage your financial health and brand reputation.

To tackle cybercrime head-on and reduce data vulnerabilities, forward-thinking company leaders will be rolling out robust cybersecurity mesh (CSMA) infrastructures to secure their stored data in every possible location.

Cybersecurity mesh empowers the world's most innovative stand-alone security solutions to work in unison to enhance overall security while shifting control points closer to the assets they are designed to secure. CSMA infrastructures exist to unify fragmented data security processes and work swiftly, as well as reliably, to discover, identify, verify, and resolve any information sensitivity issues across both cloud-based and non-cloud-based environments.

In addition to protecting every type of core or internal infrastructure, CSMA initiatives will also protect remote working networks where the threat of data breaches exists. As more people are working from home than ever before, cybersecurity meshing is the way forward in the universal protection of company information and assets.

By 2024, businesses adopting a cybersecurity mesh architecture will drive down the financial impact of security incidents by up to 90%. Considering cybercrime can derail entire organizations within a matter of hours, cybersecurity mesh is one of the most important phrases on our tech buzzwords list.

As a part of the constant effort to ensure a secure environment, for 2024, businesses are expected to start mixing their cybersecurity mesh efforts with the Zero Trust framework. Initially coined by John Kindervag at Forrester Research, this approach aims to protect company data by implementing a zero-trust policy for all users until proven otherwise. This means regardless of the location, device, or identity of the user, every access to the company system needs to be verified.  This way, the data can be protected, and every interaction can be monitored to identify any potential threats.

In order to achieve a successful Zero Trust architecture, companies must align their security efforts with business outcomes, define governance processes for data access, and understand how the system and interactions work, among other things. All things considered, security will remain both a priority and a challenge for organizations as more technologies arise—definitely a valuable IT buzzword to watch for 2024.

8. Developer Experience (DevEx)

Did you know that the developer population is expected to reach 29 million worldwide in 2024, surpassing the entire population of Australia? Even with those shocking numbers, there are still not enough developers to cover the demand. That is why, in an effort to attract and retain the best talent, companies started diving into developer experience (DexEx), a technology buzzword that will gain popularity in 2024. 

DevEx is a “developer-first” mindset that aims to enhance every touchpoint developers have within the organization to keep them satisfied and more productive. It involves providing them with the proper tools, platforms, and feedback mechanisms to carry out their work properly, resulting in better end-customer experiences. In fact, it is reported that at least 81% of companies have seen an impact on profitability coming from their DevEx investment. 

The buzzword was born from an increased need for tech-related roles after the pandemic forced businesses to accelerate their digital transformation. Today, businesses across industries are adding software to their offerings or as a way to improve daily operations. To do so, they need developers who can bring the necessary knowledge to capitalize on this digital transformation, which resulted in a big increase in the demand for these jobs. This does not apply to tech-related companies only. In fact, just 10% of the demand for these roles is concentrated in the tech industry, as the need for digital solutions permeates industries and will continue to increase in the coming years. 

However, despite a clear need for developers across industries, many companies fail to provide a roadblock-free environment for them. For example, many still spend too much time on configuration, tool integration, and debugging, which could be spent generating new solutions or features to grow the company. That shows how important it is to invest in DevEx as a way to boost productivity and engagement. Deolitte’s latest Tech Trends report offered a valuable summary of the different actions companies can take to improve their engineer's workflow; you can see them in the image below. 

DevEx overview by Deloitte

In short, Deloitte points out the need to create a one-stop platform where devs can access codes, onboarding information, tools, and more. This prevents them from using multiple decentralized applications that cause fragmentation within teams. Paired with that, companies need to ensure clear processes for developers. This means implementing a single pipeline for day-to-day activities with clear responsibilities to reduce risks. Lastly, a positive and productive work culture should be provided with training and growth opportunities and a clear career progression path. This also involves understanding that developers should not be evaluated based on velocity or quality, as their work is often related to innovation. 

Companies that manage to integrate all of these aspects can benefit from a successful DevEx and retain the best talent in the market. We will be closely following the development of this powerful concept! 

9. Digital Immune System

Next, in our list of the top technology trends for 2024, we have another concept presented by Gartner in their latest tech report: the digital immune system (DIS). This software design concept combines a set of practices and technologies, including augmented testing, chaos engineering, autoremediation, and more, to increase the resilience of products, services, and systems and ensure excellent user experience (UX) while mitigating business risks.

With the digital landscape becoming increasingly competitive daily, organizations must quickly adapt to market changes while providing customers with the best experience possible without any bugs or security issues. With that in mind, the DIS framework is expected to gain traction in 2024 as a great way to ensure healthy systems that translate into better UX as well as business performance. It does this by mitigating potential risks and looking at past failures as learning opportunities. In fact, Gartner expects that by 2025, organizations that invest in DIS will increase customer satisfaction by decreasing their downtime by 80%. 

For 2024, companies that want to implement a DIS framework into their strategies must carefully assess which areas of the organization can benefit the most from it while still involving the entire organization in the process. Collaboration between development, security, and operations teams is key to ensuring positive adoption. Amongst the technologies and best practices needed to achieve successful digital immunity, Gartner advises businesses to take into account six key elements, which include: 

  • Observability
  • AI-augmented testing
  • Chaos engineering
  • Autoremediation
  • Site reliability engineering (SRE) 
  • Software supply chain security 

With UX at the front, this technology buzzword will rule the software design landscape in 2024! 

10. Multiexperience

Arguably one of the most potent technology buzzwords on the list, multiexperience is a concept that has the potential to accelerate the success of countless businesses as long as they’re willing to embrace its capabilities. Multiexperience made waves in 2023, and in 2024, it will change the digital landscape significantly.

Multiexperience explained

So, what is this most intriguing of tech buzzwords? The term multiexperience refers to the replacement of technologically advanced people with people-literate platforms or technologies. The evolution of a digital data dashboard, for instance, means that everyone within an organization can take charge of the insights that will not only empower them to do their job better but also drive the organization forward as a whole.

A person using dashboard software to visualize data

The idea of multiexperience is that it empowers everyone to perform to their optimum capabilities, improving engagement and cementing interdepartmental communications in the process. Everyone gains access to invaluable information in a way that suits their strengths or capabilities, resulting in commercial growth and advanced self-service business intelligence across the board.

With multiexperience, the traditional notion of a computer or platform evolves from a single point of interaction to include multisensory and multi-touchpoint interfaces such as wearables, advanced computer sensors, or cloud-based tools that people can access remotely from a range of mobile devices.

As multiexperience evolves into 2024, experts predict that it will become more immersive, with virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and autonomous technologies at its heart. While multiexperience is a relatively new idea, it’s a concept that is growing at an incredible rate - and one of the IT trends of 2024 that commands attention.

Total experience explained

One of the IT buzzwords and acronyms directly related to multiexperience, total experience - or TX - is a brand-focused concept based on merging customer experience (CX), employee experience, and end-user experience to meet the exact needs of every key individual within an organization (internal and external).

TX is essentially a strategic approach to multiexperience innovations and investments that uses these tools or platforms to create links between employee performance and satisfaction and customer experience and satisfaction.

By creating a semi-autonomous landscape where the goals and needs of staff and consumers are integrated, companies can develop brand experiences that offer maximum value across every channel, improving customer loyalty, retention, and brand advocacy in the process. This is one to watch out for in 2024.

The more touch points you have at your disposal, the richer data you’ll be able to collect - and by making these insights accessible throughout your organization through dynamic data discovery tools, great things will happen.
