Mobile Application
      Mobile applications have become an integral part of daily life for people. App developers are coming up with creative applications that smartly perform particular tasks. Business organisations are showing interest in app development since it can help them reach out to consumers in an effective way. There has been a huge surge in app download trends in India.

    IAMAI President Ms. Subho Roy predicts that about 20 million mobile application developers will be required in India alone by 2020.
Information Security
    With the data transfer capabilities growing at a rapid rate, it is increasingly becoming necessary for companies to protect the networks and sources through which information is communicated. This has created a boom in the information security market. Gartner estimates a projected CAGR of 9.8% between 2015 and 2020. This means the market may be worth $170 billion by 2020. Michael Brown, CEO at Symantec gave a positive outlook on the sector with his statement, ‘the demand for the professionals is set to increase and reach up to 6 million job openings by the year 2020. This may lead to a short fall of 1.5 million professionals’
