Technology is considered as a key factor for economic development. For the economy to grow at a sustainable rate, adopting the latest technologies which augment the business performance is essential along with upgrading the skills of existing workforce. Our world today is scrambling to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, and organisations have been forced to implement measures such as work from home for their employees to adhere to the social distancing norms.

“As National Technology Day is being observed today, it serves as an important reminder of the difference that technology has made in our lives and how with its help society is becoming more resilient and is able to tide over such crisis’ faster. Today, we are going through uncertain times with the outbreak of COVID-19, and everything about our personal and work lives have changed dramatically. Thanks to the development of new technologies, a large proportion of the workforce in India and globally were able to shift to remote working with the help of collaboration and communication platforms, video conferencing and more. Also, with the extended lockdown, people are able to connect with their near and dear ones through similar apps / platforms.
