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. Instead of talking about the latest bell-and-whistle, it is increasingly more apt to involve topics about business enablement and growth,” says Tim Crawford, CIO Strategic Advisor, and AVOA. 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. In present generation, we are not using technology but we are living in technology. We connect to the technologies  several times in a day. The new smart phones, computers, digital apps, social sities,  and digital business working have taken a tenacit revolution in all over the world. 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:


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.



Highly reliable Indian Psychometric tests

Assessment Centre, HR, Leadership, Leadership skills, Psychometric Testing, Quantum Leadership, Soft Skills, Training

Salahkaar has over 30 in-house tests. These are highly researched and valid tests especially relevant for Indian setup.

Reasons for the origin of these tests:

  • Formation of a cartel based in Singapore controlling Afro-Asian market including India. (Indicate a tinge of Monopolistic hegemony).
  • Discriminatory policy of the cartel in selling, licensing and marketing of MBTI.
  • Lower reliability & validity (r=.30 for Indian sample of average age group of 22 years. That means, only around students’ sample). MBTI is well researched but validity is doubtful in the Indian, Asian and African context.
  • Unreasonable popularity based on marketing rather than scientific acumen of MBTI (Very nature of Scaling limits it).
  • The above reasons and some more necessitated a genuine Afro-Asian test of similar nature but with better reliability, validity and applicability as well as cheaper to suit their economy.

Why it is high time to dump international tests and adopt Salahkaar Tests which are valid for Indian market?

  • Salahkaar Tests are scientifically tested and found highly reliable and valid in the Indian and Nigerian (African) context.
  • Based on the same theory (Jung’s like MBTI and MBTI at Work) but also borrows heavily from the Indian concept of ARDH-NARISHWER. It maintains the robustness and adds scientificity.
  • History in the making. Unique in India. These groups are apart of the History making being the part of the early few Workshops of its type.

The Subconscious and Conscious Learning

Soft Skills, Training


I felt inspired, I got the wow feeling, I got mesmerised…

Oh, I think I learnt something new!

Since childhood, we have experienced such wow feeling for certain things when we saw it for the first time and those were the moments we gained true learning. The moments when we gained experiences that remain with us for a long time like an inspiration that makes its mark somewhere in our brain, in our heart.

Remember? How a complex theory was explained beautifully by a primary teacher and we remember that theory even when we have grown an adult not using it even once in actual life?

I am sure we all have experienced this type of learning. That’s because, that learning was not taught to us, it was explained like a story. It was an experience. We felt involved, the experienced the feeling of being part of the story.   And this experience of being part of the story remains with us, always.

There may be several theories on learning, but I believe learning has got its own stages…

Stage 1 – The Inspiration

Stage 2 – The Experience

Stage 3 – The Positioning of this experience in our mind

I call it the PIE model of learning

And when we make use of our learnings in certain way, we again go through few more stages. I believe those stages are …

Stage 4 – Mind allocates champions to work on this inspiration. Those champions are our dreams, ideas, planning, etc.

Stage 5 – Mind sends signals to body for execution of the plan

Stage 6 – Experiencing the process and results (this stage depends on stage 4)

Stage 7 – After the results stage, we move back to stage 1. Back to inspiration that we gain from the results.

& the cycle goes on!

Let’s keep our eyes open for these stages and remain conscious about loose links between these stages. Wherever required, look for opportunities, join the loose links and gain the most from your learnings. And lastly, keep looking for those wow moments, Happy learning!
