Technology is indispensable. Interestingly, that indispensability has made technology ubiquitous and allowed it to pervade every sphere of our lives. Not just that, it keeps evolving at a rapid pace. In fact, even being a technical visionary, the evolution of technology is so rapid that keeping up with the trends can be quite overwhelming! But here’s one thing I know for sure – and every technical visionary will admit it – except you’re involved with these contemporary technological trends, it can also be somewhat difficult to learn and use them proficiently. However, it’s also important to carefully select the ones relevant to your business or career.
From healthcare to art, to culture, to business, to entertainment – all of these can be enhanced greatly when combined creatively with technology. If you desire to improve your career prospects and ensure your job security, you can’t do without being technologically up-to-date. In fact, if you as a technical visionary like me desire to launch a new field within your industry, I’ll advise that you keep up to date with technology trends and innovations. Much more, I’ll recommend that if you see any innovation, it’s best to consider investing in learning how you can adopt it within your career.
Being Technologically Up-to-date – from the Perspective of a Technical Visionary, Denis Bederov
There are so many reasons why professionals across different fields must stay up to date with trends in technology, and here I have provided an overview of some of them.
Improved Decision Making
As a technical visionary with years of dedicated experience in my field, I have realized that staying abreast of technology trends prepares individuals to take informed decisions in their whatever discipline they choose – even as a consumer. Today, there’s an abundance of products and services that promise to make people’s lives more comfortable, more enjoyable, or even healthier, and more and more of these products spring up like each day. However, while a technologically-up-to-date person cannot know how every new technology works, how to use it, and several other things, he or she can learn enough about a product of interest, so as to properly harness and utilize it or to even opt not to use it.
Upgraded Skill Set
Whether you’re a job seeker, a hiring manager, or even a technical visionary like me, staying up-to-date with technology trends can also upgrade your own skill set. As you look into emerging trends of technology, you get to discover new areas and competencies you should upgrade or develop.
Rest assured, if you get left behind by the trends of technology, you will become outdated and soon irrelevant in your career, and sadly open yourself up to being overthrown and replaced. Job seekers also need to know that to be employable, you need savviness especially in emerging technologies. Staying up to date with technology will make you more employable and definitely keep your job secure.
Every technical visionary knows that staying up-to-date with technology is part of what makes him unique. That’s why people who know me would say that I am not just another technical visionary, I am an innovator. It’s because I am well-informed about the current developments in my field and I can also predict certainly the trends in years to come. By staying abreast of technological trends, you can also help to drive the future of the technology forward, and even ideate new applications for it.
Final Words from Denis Bederov
Keeping up with the latest technology will not only help you as an individual, it also enhances your company’s competitive advantage in the industry by helping it stay relevant and unparalleled in the market. There’s no reason for you to be technologically ignorant!
