IT revolution inhibited due to 20th century mindset


With globalization uncoiling at supersonic speeds when compared to a couple of decades ago, new technologies are being programmed everyday that enable communication and information sharing within seconds with aid of software’s and APPs.
However the cohort aged 40 and above who commands the economic and political decisions in the country, prefer working with old technologies and are reluctant to adopt new trends, said Farrukh Nizami, an IT expert while addressing a seminar on Cisco Certified Network Association (CCNA) held at Sir Syed University of Engineering & Technology (SSUET), on Sunday. He pointed out that Internetworking has grown rapidly during the last few decades with major objective of connecting several related networks jointly so that each user could share the same packet of information with multiple others in real time. He said that Internetworking involves connecting networks which use different protocols and how different nodes in a network are connected to each other and how they communicate. He said that “there is no scarcity of jobs in the market for networking/IT professionals, however adequately skilled candidates are not available in the market”. He said that Cisco Networking Academy is a global education programme which teaches students how to design, build, troubleshoot, and secure computer networks for increased access to career and economic opportunities in communities around the world. He said that Networking Academy provides online courses, interactive tools, and hands-on learning activities to help individuals prepare for ICT while and networking career is a requirement now days virtually in every type of industry.
