Do En­gi­neers in In­dia Stand Ex­posed To The cur­rent Tech­nol­ogy Evo­lu­tion?

The prob­lems most of­ten cited in lit­er­a­ture re­gard­ing the pit­falls of ed­u­ca­tion and as­sess­ment sys­tems in In­dia range from an em­pha­sis on ac­qui­si­tion of learn­ing, out­dated cur­ric­ula and lack of in­fra­struc­ture to pro­mote com­puter aided model­ing and vi­su­ali

The most cov­eted tech skills to­day may not be rel­e­vant five years from now, says a skill re­port re­leased by Edureka, a global e-learn­ing plat­form. While the im­por­tance of re-skilling has been stressed enough, skilling with the right tech­nolo­gies and with more than one tech­nol­ogy, is as im­por­tant as re-skilling it­self, ac­cord­ing to the re­port. More im­por­tantly, the re­port states that con­tin­u­ous re-skilling is not an op­tion any­more, but a ne­ces­sity in to­day’s volatile job mar­ket and IT pro­fes­sion­als need to in­vest in learn­ing new skills 15-20 times to achieve ca­reer growth. These are the key find­ings of ‘The fastest grow­ing tech skills 2018’, a re­port re­leased to­day by Edureka.

KEY RE­PORT FIND­INGS: Pro­fes­sion­als with 10-15 years of ex­pe­ri­ence are driv­ing de­mand for on­line cour­ses in trend­ing tech­nolo­gies. New-age tech­nolo­gies like AI, IoT, RPA, Blockchain are be­ing adopted across in­dus­tries and new job roles that didn’t ex­ist a year ago are be­ing in­tro­duced to­day.


40 and out­dated is a real worry driv­ing mid man­agers and senior pro­fes­sion­als to up-skill. En­try-level pro­fes­sion­als make up the sec­ond big­gest cat­e­gory of learn­ers af­ter mid to senior pro­fes­sion­als, re ec­tive of the skill gap be­tween in­dus­try and academia. IT-Soft­ware sec­tor con­trib­utes to the big­gest chunk of learn­ers and Fi­nance and Bank­ing sec­tor comes in sec­ond, al­though there is a big gap be­tween the two.

De­mand for cour­ses in trend­ing tech­nolo­gies is also seen from tra­di­tional in­dus­tries such as Pharma, Tele­com, and Re­tail in ad­di­tion to new-age and IT sec­tors.

In In­dia, Ban­ga­lore leads the de­mand for all fast­grow­ing tech­nolo­gies. The other met­ros also drive ma­jor de­mand, but there is a sub­stan­tial de­mand from Tier II and III cities too.

In­ter­est in train­ing for Cloud Com­put­ing and DevOps, Data Sci­ence and Big Data Frame­works is high­est among non-met­ros and tier 2 cities in com­par­i­son to met­ros.

The re­port is based on an anal­y­sis of 16,000 + learn­ers from Edureka’s learner com­mu­nity across the world. It lists the fastest-grow­ing tech­nolo­gies for 2018 and pro­vides a road-map to re-skilling for tech­nol­ogy pro­fes­sion­als.

The list of fastest grow­ing tech skills fea­tures many new en­trants such as Ar­ti­fi­cial In­tel­li­gence which has seen a 100% in­crease in learn­ers in the last 6 months at Edureka, and IoT, which un­til a year ago did not have job roles ded­i­cated to it. Blockchain is an­other tech­nol­ogy wit­ness­ing de­mand for hir­ing across ge­ogra­phies and has seen more than 25% of senior pro­fes­sion­als with 15+ years’ ex­pe­ri­ence up-skilling. This is in sync with the in­dus­try trend of global or­gan­i­sa­tions and start-ups in­no­vat­ing on blockchain. Ro­botic Process Au­to­ma­tion is the other new en­trant with jobs be­ing cre­ated in mul­ti­ple do­mains.

Vineet Chaturvedi, Co-Founder, Edureka, said, “At a time when the av­er­age life span of a tech­ni­cal skill is very low, up-skilling con­stantly has be­come a ne­ces­sity for IT pro­fes­sion­als. How­ever, many of them are in a rush to fu­ture-proof their ca­reers and are en­rolling in cour­ses with­out eval­u­at­ing the longevity of the skills they are hon­ing. A com­bi­na­tion of skills is rec­om­mended for tech­nol­ogy pro­fes­sion­als look­ing to fu­ture-proof their ca­reers. A core skill which is in de­mand also needs to be aug­mented with up­grades and other new tech­nolo­gies. Our re­port seeks to list the tech skills that will help pro­fes­sion­als plan for their ca­reer growth in a dy­namic, global in­dus­try.”

This re­port gives an in-depth un­der­stand­ing of which tech skills to in­vest in this year, evolv­ing job trends in each tech­nol­ogy, the in­dus­try ap­pli­ca­tions, sec­tor spe­cific job roles, av­er­age salary, ex­pe­ri­ence range of learn­ers, learner job pro­files, be­sides the top lo­ca­tions for these jobs in In­dia and rest of the world.
