There is no domain that has remained untouched with technology and in fact with every passing day technology is spreading its root in every possible corner. Corporate is not a new domain that has come under the influence of technology but is surely turning into the biggest. The last couple of years have seen consumerization of IT at its full strength with software companies redefining the experience of the corporate world.
The target is very clear that enterprises need solutions that are user-friendly and can adapt to the changing requirements of their users. There are specific targets or parameters that need to be taken care of and for the same Software companies need a workforce that can handle all these changing requirements. Here are the specifics:
Consistency between work and home
The concept of consumerization is based on bringing a synchronization between the work from home and office. Companies need their workforce to be mobilized so that they can operate from any corner of the world. The focus is to reduce that gap by bringing mobility in software. There are applications like Google docs, Team viewer, and Dropbox etc. that let the employees work on the same task from different geographical locations.
So, the requirement is to create an interface that gives the enterprise users a consistent environment to work on.
Systems that offer synchronized solutions
The next requirement that consumerization has raised is the need of synchronized solutions. Now what exactly these synchronized solutions mean? Generally, the enterprises used to have a complex system of business operations, with different platforms for users, clients, and company employees. But this problem was countered with enterprise software that created a single interface or channel for companies and clients.
With common platforms, clients can even share their experiences with others and in turn, it helps in the growth of business.
Optimized and real-time solutions
Now, these systems can only be useful if they are fully optimized and updated with the latest information, or we can say they need to be real-time. Say, for an example if there is a system for a stock exchange company then it needs to be highly precise and real time as the data it contains is very sensitive. The customers need the data which is updated with latest and accurate information.
Security is the primary concern
All connectivity and interface requirements raise a simple question. Doesn’t that increase the chances of jeopardizing the security and integrity of business? Yes, it does, that is why security is the biggest concern that was raised due to the consumerization of IT and is required to be dealt with. Companies need extended security policies, firewalls, and strategies to avoid any possible chance of loss to the business.
This is the current status where Consumerization of IT stands today. And to tackle all of these requirements there is a need of a dependable and strong technical team. A team that can counter any technical requirement be it the development of a software or security.
Today, the requirement set of corporate has increased to a higher level and hence creating a larger gap between the skill set of students and the corporate requirements. And to bridge that gap students need to go for vocational or specialized training that can cater those needs. We at IIHT focus at creating a talent pool that can cater this industry demand with precision.
