Riding the waves of the 4th Industrial Revolution
The story of civilization is witnessing yet another movement in the industrial frontiers. The evolving fourth industrial revolution is defining newer possibilities of an extraordinary leap to the technological forefront. Robots, artificial intelligence, Data Analytics, autonomous transport, IOT, Clouds, nanotechnologies etc are changing the society to a higher innovative dimension of technological applications.
The waves of the 4th industrial revolution have set the industrial ocean to state of total turbulence. The technological changes, devastating economy and issues of multicultural coalition have given rise to a number of challenges in the industry. As in any revolution the greater promises and greater perils are always very high. Those who came before us made certain that any society can ride the waves of revolution safer, if they find themselves a part of it by leading it rather than to founder in the backwash of the coming age of space.
Perhaps, Disruption is a major factor inherent in any industrial revolution. One major dimension is with the labour market. A high level of distrust and scepticism happens in the career space where a number of old jobs vanish and new one emerges. Hence the workforce in IT sector is not only at risk of losing the job but also blamed for anchoring in the workspace incompetent to survive in the changing situation.
In the contemporary scenario of (4IR) it is said that “Open source technology is like a war ship, which sails steadily in the rough sea of IT disruption, where other technologies got sink like small ships, and existing a base for most of the emerging future technologies, same like carrying and controlling flights which are flying high”. The trends of 2018 have explicitly proven that Evergreen and Future jobs are based on Open source. Hence the job possibilities in Cloud, Security, Storage, Date Centre, Big Data, IoT, Dev Ops, Automation, Artificial Intelligence, Block Chain etc will continue to be a sustainable platform in the career space. It is notable that the gateway to all these jobs happens to be Linux and Python Programming.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux is the most popular Linux distribution developed by one of the world’s largest open source company – Red Hat. Few credentials and Benchmark of Red Hat as the leader of IT industry and Red Hat certification as hottest Linux certification are
- 85% of Live servers rely on Linux footprint out of which 65% are of Red Hat Linux.
- More than 90% of fortune global companies rely on Red hat.
- Red Hat System Administrators have salary 10% higher than other Linux Admins.
- Once you add an RHCE to resume it will command an approximate annual salary of$ 140,000
- Red Hat certification exams are hands on performance based, so the certification have high value, moreover the certified candidates will be skill proven and ready to industry.
Python is the most demanding programming language in 2018 because of its increased use in a variety of purposes like machine learning, research, data mining, and web development, artificial intelligence (AI), Big Data, and Robotics all rely heavily on Python. Cyber Security, one of the top software challenges of our time, is also driven by Python.
The Python programming language is freely available and makes solving a computer problem . The code can be written once and run on almost any computer without needing to change the program. Python supports both object-oriented programming and structured programming. It is because of this features python has become most demandable programming language in companies.
You can also combine python and linux both higly on demand in industry, It has been said (and often required by recruitment agencies) that system administrators need to be proficient in a scripting language. While most of us may be comfortable using Bash (or other shell of our choice) to run command-line scripts, a powerful language such as Python can add several benefits.
Hopefully, when the Industrial revolutions reach its zenith, never allow its waves to knock you down but prepare yourself to ride them.
