The business IT panorama is increasingly getting disrupted due to the onslaught of Cloud, Data Science, AI, and IoT adoptions on both consumer and enterprise side. Hence, the talent community is keen on securing their destiny by moving to Cloud and other latest techs to ensure their employability for a decade or even more.
