Whether you’re an IT professional, a tech-savvy parent, or just interested in learning about the latest and greatest in the technology world, there are a few things that you should be aware of. These are the top five things that industry insiders are talking about in the IT news today.
Millennials and Information Technology News Today is a study conducted by the Media Insight Project, a collaboration of the American Press Institute and AP-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. It is the latest extension of the Personal News Cycle study conducted in 2014. The study included quantitative surveys of Millennials nationwide and in-depth interviews with 23 Millennials in four cities (Chicago, Oakland, San Francisco, and Fredericksburg).
The study found that 69 percent of Millennials report getting news at least once a day. They get news from a variety of sources. They report following politics, local community issues, and crime. They also report following news sources such as popular culture and social issues.
They are more likely to follow social issues than news sources. They report receiving news several times a day, but are less likely to report following popular culture.
Using research, a study by Glassdoor found that Generation Z is the most tech savvy of all the generations. They have access to the latest technology, and are up to speed with social norms. They also rank highly when it comes to salary.
Gen Z is also more practical than Millennials. Gen Z workers are more tech savvy and more likely to choose a tech career. They are also more likely to work remotely. Gen Z workers are also more likely to prioritize good benefits packages and flexible work hours. Gen Z workers are also more likely to take an alternative route to a four-year degree.
Gen Z is the first generation to grow up with access to the internet. This early access has helped fuel pragmatic behaviors, as well as fueling a small shift in consumer expectations. Gen Z consumers are looking for brands that can offer high perceived value for a low price. They also are more likely to pay attention to marketing campaigns that use real people.
CIOs face tough market for recruiting and retaining tech talent
Recruiting and retaining tech talent remains a top priority for CIOs. But, in a tough labor market, the challenges are more difficult than ever. Despite a recent surge in wages, companies are still struggling to fill positions. And, many tech professionals have left permanent jobs for a more independent career.
For example, a recent Gartner survey found that the biggest organizational skill gaps were around big data and analytics. And, wage inflation for internal tech teams rose dramatically in the past year.
However, there are still a few ways that CIOs can ensure that they’re able to attract and retain the right talent. First, they must offer a competitive compensation package. Second, they must find ways to offer flexible work arrangements to employees. Finally, they must find ways to recruit freelancers and other outside contractors.
Cost containment is a major goal
Managing expenses is no joke. But it’s also not all doom and gloom. Some of the smartest companies in the business are using Strata Decision Technology to help them shave off their top line and turn a profit at the same time. If you’re a hospital or healthcare provider in the Northeast, chances are you have a vendor who could help you with your financial planning needs. The key is to make sure you find the right vendors. For instance, you don’t want to be the one hospital in town with no financial planner on hand. So be sure to find a vendor that can help you with the heavy lifting. The best place to start is by requesting quotes from their reps. And you may want to ask them about Strata.
India’s IT industry is 8 per cent of the country’s GDP
During the last decade, India’s IT/ITeS industry has grown many fold in revenue terms. It has helped create new job opportunities in India and contributed to India’s growth in exports. The industry is expected to contribute to exports of USD 178 billion in the fiscal year (FY) 2021-22. It also offers quality products and services, high reliability and speedy deliveries.
India is a key player in the global sourcing market and possesses cost competitiveness that will continue to be its USP. However, it needs to increase productivity to keep employment growing. Increasing productivity would create 90 million gainful jobs by 2030, as well as increase incomes for workers.
India’s large firms have not yet achieved their productivity potential. In fact, they have contributed 1.5 to 1.6 times less than the average of other emerging economies.
