In this age of digital disruption , especially in a knowledge worker age reskilling oneself in digital technologies is the way to go for an IT professional.
Rather than cribbing about having to unlearn old things to learn new technologies , tuning of the mind is needed to make oneself believe that “Yes I can.” Trending technologies like Big data HADOOP , Data science including R and Python are technologies that can be learnt by having access to internet with myriad number of blogs , forums and repositories available to enable learning.
Aside from this , getting enrolled for online courses by expert vendors would silence the nerves and instill a belief that these are just like any other technologies to learn and adapt to. Adaptability has a lot to do with the mental strength of an individual and for professionals is the need of the hour.
Everything is there in the mind , unlearning what has been learned and learning new technologies in line with digital transformation is definitely the way forward.
