    Tech Comm Trends: Providing Value as a Generalist in a Sea of Specialists
    Tom Johnson Recorded: Jan 15 2019 62 mins
    Trends in technical communication can be hard to decipher, even when looking at data. But one underlying trend is that technology seems to be getting more specialized and complex. This trend toward specialization is driving up the value of technical knowledge, making it more prized than writing skills. At the same time, writers are often wearing multiple hats as they work on a variety of generalist writing tasks and a diversity of technical projects. The requirement to be both specialist and generalist makes tech comm a particularly challenging field to navigate.

    Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and his special guest, Tom Johnson, for this free one-hour webinar. Tom will talk about the growing complexity in the technology landscape that is ratcheting up the importance of technical knowledge in organizations, and overshadowing writing skills. Creating documentation is becoming more of a collaborative effort with engineers due to the increasing level of complexity and specialization in the technology landscape.Specialized knowledge about writing and language doesn't seem to have as much weight in the workplace as technical knowledge. Join Scott and Tom for a lively discussion about these recent trends in tech comm.

    By 2020, 90 percent of businesses will have moved to a hybrid cloud infrastructure, seizing both the competitive advantages of digital evolution -- and the economic and strategic benefits of maintaining legacy applications on premises. But once your data moves outside your private architecture, you're facing a new world of potential attacks and security breaches that your current security practices just can't match.

    Just for starters, not only will you need to implement effective RBAC to lower risk of unauthorized access and enforce mandatory multi-factor authentication, you'll also have to tap into the power of automation to validate security compliance baselines, detect unauthorized cloud config changes, and power self-healing infrastructure. Additionally, application-centric security is a must, with real-time visibility into application dependencies and performance metrics, plus an automatic micro-segmented security policy enforcement, and more.

    With the explosion of cryptocurrency over the past of years, many have been debating the longevity and legitimacy of cryptocurrencies in our global economy. However, those with a keener eye were fascinated with something far more useful and widely applicable: Blockchain — the technology that made cryptocurrency possible in the first place.
    The rise of Blockchain since then has been nothing short of remarkable, with gigantic companies like Microsoft, Oracle, and IBM investing heavily in the technology. The job market took notice as well, with demand on Toptal – a marketplace for on-demand tech talent- increasing 700% since January 2017.
    In fact, Blockchain-related jobs are now the second-fastest growing in today’s labor market according to TechCrunch. While it’s not news that there is a significant shortage when it comes to programming skills in the global market today, you might be surprised by the numbers that indicate the level of shortage we have in our global labor market. For instance, it’s expected that there would be 1 million programming job openings by 2020, with as many as 83% of CIOs struggling to find tech talent, according to a recent research by TechRepublic.
    Combine that with the exponential growth in demand for blockchain jobs, and it’s no surprise that even those extremely high numbers would continue to rise. To best address this challenge, IIB has taken an approach that adopts a globalized delivery of vocational education and training with agreed-upon levels of requirements among Blockchain experts.
    Irene is Director of the IIB Council, Leading the IIB Council's global initiatives and strategic partnerships. Working with industry leaders and subject matter experts from Fortune 500 companies to develop cutting edge Business-Tech certification courses.

    In this episode of our Blue Prism Café, hear from leading Canadian supermarket-chain Loblaw on how they tackled the "human side" of the Digital Workforce in their 1st year, and how building a long-term sustainable training, career growth and upskilling plan was critical to their first set of success and how it's setting them up for serene scalability.

    This webinar will be chaired by Blue Prism's own Head of RPA, in conversation with the RPA team at Loblaw, Robiquity, a multi award-winning robotic process automation (RPA) enablement business, as well as Blue Prism's Global Head of Education Services.

    • Building a long-term career and growth plan for your talent
    • Lessons learned and best practices
