We are living in the 4th industrial revolution consisting of "Internet and Renewable Energy", where we are more in need of people with digital, technical and network infrastructure skills combined with today's now necessary virtual ways of working, which are challenging employers and their talent to acquire digital skills, and quickly.

Fourth Industrial Revolution - internet and  tech

In the past, we had the first Industrial Revolution in 1765 thanks to coal, which transformed our economy from agriculture to industry. Processes became more mechanised and products were manufactured for the first time.

Then in 1870, we had the second Industrial Revolution thanks to electricity, gas and oil. Steel and chemically based products entered the market during this time. Developments in communication technology got a jump start with the telegraph and later the telephone. Transportation grew by leaps and bounds with the invention of the plane and the car.

The third industrial revolution in the 1960s started thanks to nuclear energy and electronics entering the landscape, this has been the forefront of many things as we transitioned into the 4th industrial revolution consisting of the internet, network infrastructures, cloud computing and people with the skills to work within these fields.

Even though it is highly technical work, it is easy to pursue a certification in it from Readynez.

Readynez has many cybersecurity qualifications on offer, in line with the demands of employers that need people with cybersecurity skills.

Cloud Computing:

Cloud Computing simply means the delivery of technology services from applications to storage and processing power over the internet (only paying for how much you use on a pay-as-you-go basis). Previously, everyone used on-premise server storage to maintain their network infrastructure and server storage.

Cloud has streamlined all these helping companies save time, money and having peace of mind that their data infrastructure is accessible via the cloud, remotely and securely, without having to pay for any storage that is not used on-premise and costing more when it comes to downsizing as well as upgrading. With cloud becoming more and more prevalent within companies that are moving their infrastructure into the cloud, the demand for cloud computing professionals is rising every day.

IoT (Interest of Things):

As more and more daily devices, gadgets and even appliances are being connected to the internet. Giving us access to our connected devices and appliances remotely via the internet, enabling us to control them from where ever we are in the words, whether it's simply switching our devices on or off via an app or controlling the thermostat at home to be warm before we get in.

AI (Artificial Intelligence):

Artificial intelligence and machine learning are no longer science fiction stories but it's becoming a reality. Every day, as we start to automate our life using smart devices and also using it to learn our daily behaviour patterns..

Mostly, via algorithms used by companies to send advertising to potential consumers but also developing technologies to have driverless vehicles in the future. The ability for machines to learn human behaviour depending on past data, hence why AI engineers are needed to develop and deploy AI models from start to end.
