The Future of Technology is Human
Today, there are approximately 23.4 billion smartphones, computers, tablets and other devices connected to the Internet and the number will reach 30 billion by the year 2020. Note that all these devices will give out a massive amount of data. And this data of billions of people will be secured by data centers.
What will these data centres of the future look like? But more importantly, who will be the bright minds managing these centres holding such valuable data? With every pivot industries make and with each new application, strategy or technology incorporated, there remains one top concern: the ability to find suitably skilled talent even as the necessary skill sets evolve and the talent gap widens. Change can only happen when leaders in power make decisions to foster change by becoming allies and advocates to recruit and retain diverse talent.
