Business Technology Roadmap

In general, certificates are a great addition to any resume. Especially that of a fresh graduate as the certifications make up for the lack of experience that would otherwise deter an employer from considering the applicant in question. This is because the certificate acts as a seal of guarantee assuring the employer that the applicant has a good grasp on that given element or skill and has sufficient knowledge on it. This is further amplified in the tech world as the number of programmes out there continue to expand each day. Thus, it is important for an employee to figure out exactly what skills you have and at what level those skills are.

As you progress in your role and career, you will be able to distinguish exactly what you want to focus on and develop an expertise for. That is when your journey and pathway becomes extremely clear and it is easy to determine the courses and certifications you want to pursue to achieve the career goal you have. Till then, and especially as a fresh graduate it is best to stick to an entry level pathway that offers more broad and general courses that help you find your footing in the world of tech. 

When it comes to business tech in particular, there is a whole new world of skills you will need to acquire. As more businesses and offices shift to a hybrid or purely online presence there is now a need for professionals to be well versed in business tech. The plus point is that employers are not necessarily looking for an IT graduate to also help with the application and maintenance of the business platform. It is sufficient to have a certificate in the specific role that the business needs, be it in designing, programming, or establishing.

The popular certificates for this are in Oracle, Microsoft, RedHat, VMware and HumanFactor International. Each of those certifications have their own path and progression leading up to specific career roles within the given certificate. For instance, Oracle itself has certifications for administrators, developers, Javascript and Middleware. Like so, each certification provides a distinct and curated list of courses that can help you achieve exactly what you need to reach your desired position. Rest assured that there is a course for you, regardless of your education background at a diploma or degree level, your skill or expertise level and even your desired specifications. The most popular courses across these certifications lie in helpdesk certifications server and network certifications, cloud computing certifications and the most popular of them all, security and compliance certificates.

Though humans are often viewed as the weakest link in the process of automation, it is evident that the role of a human is irreplaceable. At least it still is at this stage of automation. This is why there is no time like now to pursue getting certified in business tech. For the foreseeable future, business tech will continue to rise and evolve, now is your chance to get ahead of the game and secure your spot on the wave of business tech.

10 Facts About Blockchain

  1. Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency that uses blockchain technology, other cryptocurrencies use their own versions of blockchain.
  2. Blockchain is a technology that needs the internet to work.
  3. Blockchains can be public (like the internet), or private (like the intranet).
  4. Blockchain is part record-keeping, part network protocol.
  5. Records stored on blockchain cannot be modified or deleted, only added on to it.
  6. Blockchain relies on multiple computers in a peer-to-peer network to work, thereby eliminating single points of failure.
  7. Blockchain uses consensus rules to ensure the network agrees on the records.
  8. Blockchain uses cryptography to ensure the integrity of the records and network.
  9. Blockchain isn’t the solution to all problems.
  10. Just like with the internet, there will be jobs that become obsolete. But, there will be new careers that we haven’t even dreamed up yet that will be created as a result of blockchain.

Bitcoin is NOT Evil

It’s a shame that the media and the powers that be are influencing the minds of people into thinking that bitcoin is some sort of scam and that everyone should stay away from it. It’s an even bigger shame that the folks who do understand bitcoin are the ones scamming these poor people! Bitcoin is not evil despite what many think, it’s simply a digital currency that is not tied to any nation nor controlled by any central bank. The fact that no one controls bitcoin is what makes banks so afraid. So, if no one is control, what is? The software behind bitcoin is the one controlling the network.

Strategic agility in a changing world

Over the past two decades, advances in technology have triggered unprecedented changes across all aspects of society. In the business world, this tech-shift has created a context of constantly evolving customer and market needs. Developments in digital technologies, such as smart devices, the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI) and blockchain, have disrupted and transformed markets at astonishing speed. The world as we know it today is volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous1. As a result, the strategies that once delivered deep market power and long-term dominance are no longer effective.

In a world that is constantly changing, the target state is no longer static, but ‘will constantly move as the wider context changes and evolves. In this paper, we will look at:

Blockchain vs Databases – What’s the Difference?

Why do we need blockchain when we already have a solution to store data (a database)? Well, you don’t really need blockchain, unless your current solution isn’t the right one. Yes, both solutions store data, but there are key differences between these two technologies.

How blockchain works is, when data is recorded it cannot be then modified or deleted, only added on to it. Cryptography ensures that data in blockchains are immutable. A database is usually handled by a single administrator who has the rights and permissions to modify and even delete any records. Yes, we trust our administrator, but this much power shouldn’t be in the hands of a single person.
