The face of IT is changing rapidly with the onset of the customer age driven age and there’s no going back. The IT is undergoing a number of fundamental shifts because of a direct result of economic necessities and ongoing technological developments. It is businesses to monitor developments closely, adapting essential products and services to meet new marketplace demands, In order to remain relevant to their clients and customers.“Today, we are seeing a marked shift in the conversations happening with the CIO.

Crawford will share more insights on the shifting IT climate during an upcoming live webcast with Sales force’s head of research. In the “2016 State of IT” report, Salesforce Research surveyed over 2,200 IT leaders and CIOs to discover how their organizations have been impacted by this shift and which strategies top performers are using to stay ahead.
Technology has increasingly encompassing our lives. It has become an integral part of today’s world . The 21st century is a globalized and modernised period, where the technology has taken considerable space in our day to day life.

From a phone call to deciding our future goals, we take succour of the technology. The pre-emience role of the technology has emerged it into a prodigious industry.
The Information and technology industry is the sector of hardware and software application of computers and internet to store, transmit, interpret, and utilize information. It is digital market which has international links with the enterprises and government of country.
The information and technology industry is very dynamic in nature. It keeps on improving everyday in terms of digital advancement. The IT industry has faced abundant trends till now.
Based on the findings, here are five trends that are shaping the future of the IT industry. We’ve compiled the following list of 5 top industry trends changing the face of IT to help your business prepare for the fast-approaching future:
- Mobile Devices –The basic tools that businesses and consumers use to interact with each other are currently undergoing a major behavioural shift. More than one-third of the conventional PC market is on the verge of being replaced by smartphones and tablet computers in the coming year and this trend shows no signs of slowing. Nearly every organization across the globe has been moved by digital transformation while IT leaders are constantly racing to leap ahead of new customer expectations and behaviours. As a result, app development has become central to IT strategy. Seventy-nine percent of IT teams are developing apps for customers and employees and, nearly 90% of new apps launching in the next 12 months will be created with a mobile-first mind-set.
- Cloud Computing — Businesses are now looking for interesting ways to scale back on overhead and infrastructure costs, they are moving rapidly to Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and other cloud-based computing solutions. By growing consumer confidence in this new technology, more and more firms are encouraging the advantages of shifting their software applications to private cloud networks. As the economy recovers and growth resumes, these solutions allow for low-cost, on-demand scalability.
- Virtualization –With cloud computing and SaaS revolutionizing the way companies access their software applications, recent trends in virtualization are allowing businesses to delete the complete server farms and slash the associated costs. In addition to streamlining and making IT infrastructure more economical and flexible, server virtualization has presented the framework for more strategic IT initiatives. As a result, Infrastructure-as-a-Service (in which companies rely on equipment owned by service providers) and Platform-as-a-Service (IaaS with a software development framework) are also growing in popularity.
- Telework/Virtual Offices –With cloud computing capabilities and other advancements in office connectivity growing rapidly, companies all over the world are realizing the cost-saving benefits of virtual office environments. By moving distant from original physical office-based business models toward remote and private network structures, more and more businesses are taking advantage of this new technology to increase productivity.
- Alternative Productivity Applications – Inspired by the recent economic downfall, companies are now looking for new ways of improving productivity, growing employee efficiency and improving their overall business. In this attempt, new solutions in videoconferencing, unified communications and business intelligence applications will continue to be devised, grow and develop, since they help employees to work collectively and together in remote office environments. In addition to improvements and developments in these already existing fields, there is considerable demand for growth and improvement in the productivity software sector, with more and more businesses adopting and accepting new programs created to improve efficiency, lower operating costs and streamline business processes.
Training is a journey and not the destination. It is a process which involves the gaining knowledge, enhancing skills and change or inculcation of a desired behavior. Which eventually enhances the performance of employees. And thus leads to organizational development. But how many organizations understands the importance of training and its evaluation in the right way
It is vital for any organization to work on effectiveness of training before implementing one. This starts with correct planning. The planning includes the correct need identification. Trainings can provide immense benefits for employees as well as the organization, but only if they are carefully planned and well implemented. A clearly defined road map for any training not only helps the organization but also gives the motivation to learner. And later, this road map helps in evaluation of training outcome.
Any training would be related to one or more of below mentioned goals.
1. Enhance productivity of employees
2. Improved market performance of the organization
3. Boost the morale of employees by giving them the window of growth opportunities
4. Quick and smooth induction of new joiners.
5. Help meet the increased demand of market or specific customer demands related to quality and production standards
6. Quick and easier transition from current process to a new process or system in the organization.
It is important to identify which goal the training belongs to. An effective training starts from here. That is, the understanding of the focus area of the training. In most cases, it would be related to any one of above or any other specific goal of the organization. This process can be termed as ‘Focal point of training’.
Once the goal and training is decided, the right trainer is very important. Find your trainers here
