The Recent trends in Information Technology
The following trends are the future significant concepts of Information Technology
- Cloud Computing
Cloud computing is the concept of sharing hardware and software services over internet. Thus, instead of localizing the data and services over a specific computer or server, distributing it across internet among interested parties will benefit the entire organization in terms of
- Reduced infrastructure cost
- Easy access of information
- machine independent
- Huge room for storage etc.
This concept has certain cons like, privacy, data security, data governance etc. Although still studies are carried out in completely overcoming the cons, several organizations have started implementing cloud computing in their immediate networks.
- Data Privacy
This aspect of IT sector deals with the right to control the visibility or accessibility of certain personal data, stored in the computer systems which are of importance to the individuals or organizations.
For example, a patient can claim his rights to the hospital on maintaining the confidentiality of his medical problems and conditions. Similarly a parent can rightfully ask the educational institution of his/her child to refrain from sharing the child’s information to any other third parties.
Certain countries like USA have already employed strict laws with respect to data privacy.
To realize and effectuate data privacy, several methods like, encryption, authentication questions, password protections, data masking etc. can be followed.
Analytics is the concept of inferring insights from the collected or stored data of significant and relevant importance.
For example, by looking at the collected log data of an employee we can deduce his average working hours, time at which he commences his work, time at which he leaves the office etc.
On a higher management level the above mentioned data can help the managers to understand the effective working hours, employee’s active contributions, ways to improve and encourage the employee, etc.
Thus data analytics relies heavily on huge data that has to be collected and stored overtime. Concepts like Bid Data Analytics are already there to concentrate on vast data management for the specified purposes.
Data Analytics concentrates
- Preventive measures
- Future prediction etc.
