Business have seen disruptions and need of digitisation since the beginning of Modi’s regime during especially with demonetisation.

Businesses identified the critical need to be tech enabled since early 20s itself and have been investing heavily on technologies, especially in the last one decade. While building the tech infrastructure is easy, the biggest task has been to for the businesses to encourage the employees to have a digital technology mindset of doing things.
On practical impact on an employee’s life perspective, there is quite a lot. This includes usage of cloud, ERPs, Video Conferencing tools, digitally collaborating with colleagues, task management and so much which can just transform the way we work in an organisation. But this could be very discomforting for a large workforce due to earlier times ways of working dynamics.
This is a completely new way of working especially for the ones who have been in jobs since late 90s or early 20s. We have seen businesses taking great deal of efforts to encourage their employees to be tech savvy and bring in tech enabled working styles and overall thinking.
