Converting analog data into digital files is called Digitization. Creating spreadsheets is one such example based on our data on paper. And when this digitized data is used to improve workflows through automation of existing processes, it is called Digitalisation. That is, digitalization is the use of digital technologies to change a business model. Artificial intelligence is one of the core technologies in digital transformation that is helping businesses scale up. The technologies included in this are electronic tools, systems, devices and resources that generate, store or process data. For eg. Social media, online games, multimedia and mobile phones.

This digital revolution has impacted people and work alike. Emerging technologies like AI, 5G, cloud technology, quantum computing,etc. are the building blocks for the future of organisations. In line with this, a vision to transform India into a digitally empowered society and knowledge economy, a programme ‘Digital India’ by the Govt of India has been launched. For this, the nine pillars to work around are e-Governance, EKranti, Broadband Highway, Universal Mobile Connectivity, Public Internet Access, IT jobs, Information for all, Electronics Manufacturing,and Early Harvest Programmes.

Providing uninterrupted internet access at a fast speed is the basic requirement to make this dream come true. The infrastructure, literacy and delivery of services would lay a strong ground for making India a front runner in digitalization. We can see this getting achieved sooner than later with the government’s initiatives like Digilockers, E-Hospitals, E-Pathshala, BHIM, Common Service Centres. Though the task is mammoth, all the departments are working earnestly in collaboration adhering to a given timeline to meet the targets set for them.

Apart from this, since there would be a lot of influx and out flux of information and data on the innumerable digital platforms, it becomes imperative for sound legislation to be put in place. Digital India Act is a step in that direction which aims to replace the existing Information Act. This act to be introduced in the winter session would entail policies on data protection, data governance and cyber security; basically covering the entire digital ecosystem in order to monitor the content availability and accessibility.

With all this, India is surely going to succeed in the ‘Techade’- a term aptly coined by our Prime Minister Mr Narendra Modi; by pushing the 5G, semiconductors, optical fibre networks to make the electronics and tech industry as our economy booster in the present decade.

Hail DigiIndia!
