Tech Industry Changes and the Emergence of a World IT Army

The world we live in has changed a lot in the last few years. The pandemic had pushed people to work from home, and they are reluctant to go to the office now. Climate change concerns are driving auto manufacturers to go electric, and the war between Russia and Ukraine is leading to change in the world’s power structure. All this has led to many tech industry changes and the emergence of a world IT army.

The US Tech Workforce is Getting More Organized

Tech firms have been immune to unions, and it allows them to lower costs, operate freely and be more agile. But now, with claims of huge tech companies like Apple being unfair to employees are cropping up, the tech sector is getting more organized, and unions will likely form soon. If or when that happens, the IT industry will have to deal with added costs. If IT firms resist unions, they will probably face employee attrition.

Electric Vehicle Adoption is Rising

Big brands in the auto industry like Ford, Volvo, Jaguar, and many others are initiating the production of electric vehicles to compete with Tesla and do their bit towards global warming and climate change issues. It will further increase dependence on technology and might pave the way for autonomous vehicles.

The Emergence of the International Cyber Army

A large volunteer group of hackers is working hard to thwart the Russian cyberattack on Ukraine. Even the hacktivist collective Anonymous has also declared war on Russia. The IT Army is independent of nations and has become the world’s cyber-defense force. It becomes active only when illegal conflicts threaten local or world stability. Interestingly, many believe that this Cyber Army is better than even NATO or the UN when it comes to taking the fight back to Russia.

The IT Army of Ukraine is doing a respectable job taking down Russian cyberspace. Many believe Russia’s abilities have paled compared to what the Cyber Army is capable of.

Amassment of Wealth

It is also a fact that the largest tech companies in the world are amassing a level of wealth that was not seen earlier. In addition to wealth, they are also accumulating influence, transnational interests, and international presence that only the states enjoyed before now. As the times are changing, tech companies are not mere players in global politics. They are often an arena by themselves.

Other Notable Trends

In addition to the trends mentioned above, some other tech industry changes you need to look out for are the metaverse, efficient AI, and the rising real probability of digital immortality. This decade will see an unprecedented change for which the world might not be completely ready.

Final Words

A wise move in such a situation is to stay agile, actively broaden one’s skills and adapt to the waves of change rather than getting drowned by them. The more agile you are, the better you will adapt to the numerous changes coming our way.
