I was unable to publish this one on-time, however, find some of the interesting and latest development of the technology from Nokia (one of the leading Smartphone manufacturer), from Nokia Innovation Day 2016 event held in Bangalore, India.

The world is becoming more urbanized, isn't it? Yes, with exponentially more connected devices. You would have observed them all around about it. For every device connected to the Internet today, 10 more will join it in the near future. This is the current scenario and will improve further soon.

The Nokia business groups provides mobile and fixed solutions, IT platforms, analytics, security and related service capabilities such as multi-vendor system integration – the company also support end to end services in connected cars, digital health and smart home and integrate partners via our IoT ecosystem program.
At its annual Bangalore Innovation Day on December 14, 2016 Nokia demonstrated how it is making IoT a reality for smart cities, and public safety. The demos showcased how to manage the connectivity of myriad people and things, and how to eliminate “slow and complex” from creating IoT applications - and how it can be done in a secure manner.

These are innovations that leverage:

       In- house build sensors
       IMPACT, MEC platform
       Patented Algorithms by Bell Labs
       End to end Network based solution for trespassing detection

Besides, there were demos from universities and start-up eco-system, and other innovations out of Nokia’s Bangalore Technology Center were showcased.

IoT demos for Smart Cities:

IoT solutions are designed to provide shared, secure and scalable platform that ensures the best use of urban resources and data to enable the human possibilities of smart, safe and sustainable cities.

Three IoT use cases were demonstrated at the Innovation Day:

1.       Smart Parking- This innovation that offers vehicle tagging to the respective slot and pre- booking. It helps on travel, traffic and driving management.
2.       Video Analytics- that can enhance surveillance capability through identifying intruders and trespassers at a fenced location
3.       Rail Road crossing- A life-saving measure, this innovation can promptly deliver warning message to people in dangerous proximity to a manned or un-manned railway crossing. It can also help authorities enforce penalty for trespassing or violation of railway-crossing rules.

All the solutions uses Nokia IoT Cloud solution called IMPACT platform where in real time data is processed, and meaningful insights are generated through Machine learning algorithms.

5G Autonomous Car.
Nokia’s thought leadership on 5G is well accepted in the industry with various engagements. Nokia believes every industry will be affected by 5G. Network speeds as high as 10Gbps and with extremely low latency are a driving force for new applications that use massive broadband capabilities. 

The 5G will be the platform enabling growth in many industries, ranging from the IT industry to the car, entertainment, agriculture and manufacturing industries. 5G autonomous car use case highlighted the low latency and ultra-reliability aspects of 5G technology.

Technical candidates lack of right combination of hard and soft skills

Do you know the latest information on technology candidates? If not, learn something out of the box from the experts. Yes, The latest Kelly Global Workforce Insights (KGWI) survey on Career Resilience also found that across the globe, 60 per cent of millennials are concerned with keeping their skills updated, reflecting the uncertain economic times that they grew up in, their fascination with technology and disruptive business models, and their relatively high degree of comfort with change. How and why? Read this detail from Kelly. Geographically, APAC workers (64 per cent) are significantly more concerned with skills remaining current when compared to Americas (55 per cent) and EMEA (56 per cent). So,  lack of technical right combination of hard and soft skill results due to multi reasons. This result affect both, employer and employees.

Kelly Services survey showsMillennials increasingly concerned about their skills becoming outdated

In this article, you will know indepth detail of Tech skills among its profession across globe. Yes, check the detail provided by KGWI. Outdated skills affect product and business too. PT workers represented over half of the workers surveyed in APAC and several PT disciplines reported meaningfully higher than average concerns with skills obsolescence versus layoffs (74 per cent of finance and accounting, 73 per cent of IT and 70 per cent of engineering). The findings reiterate the impending IT skill shortages in APAC, and the potentially negative impact on the region’s competitiveness. 

“This is the age of do-it-yourself (DIY) career development. It is up to candidates to manage and invest in their own career—taking advantage of every learning and training experience, and building a personal brand that is separate from their employer. Career resilience will be defined by one’s acceptance of freelance assignments, temporary or contract opportunities,” said Thammaiah BN, Managing Director, Kelly Services India. 

Now, you would have known some of the fact that how tech skills diminishes among profession due to various reasons. Read more detail about it.

The rise of the personal brand

The KGWI survey shows that relationships play the most important role in personal branding and it is changing the way people network. Do you know about it in detail? If not, continue to read about this one. This is true not just for hiring managers but also freelancers as the survey shows that 57 per cent of freelancers tap their personal and professional networks to find jobs via word-of-mouth and referrals. More importantly, 24 per cent of global workers secured their most recent job via word of mouth or employee referral and another 29 per cent directly from an employer or head-hunter. The survey also brings to the fore the importance of skills to back up positive reputation. 

It sometime enrich the overall performance of the organization and sometime it goes with negative result to due to few unexpected reason.

“Candidates should be open to interning or taking a temporary position to build experience, whether at the beginning or middle of their career. Starting as a temporary employee or completing an internship gives talent an edge with PT hiring managers, especially for engineering candidates,” added Thammaiah.

Most important hard skills

The Career Resilience survey established five universal hard skills most often mentioned by PT hiring managers as important. Ranked one to five were analytical thinking (80 per cent), communication (61 per cent), evaluation, analysis, accuracy and trouble shooting (58 per cent), technical including systems, computers, software (57 per cent) and complex problem solving skills (56 per cent) respectively.

The important takeaway from the survey was that fewer than 40 per cent of global workers take advantage of career discussions with their employer. And only one-third (32 percent) seek training and pays for it while 46 per cent take advantage of employer-provided training. 

Candidates must remember that do-it-yourself training can provide an edge when the opportunity for a career conversation arises and augment the creation of advanced opportunities for the future, the report concluded.
