Consumerization of IT

It is pertinent that businesses are growing in data more than ever before, yet have remarkably little access to it. Similarly, business cycles are growing smaller and smaller thus making it necessary to take the stream of new and prevailing business data and process it rapidly enough to make critical decisions.
The Seminar was concluded after a long question-answer session. Mr. Muhammad Junaid, Head Information Technology Department, University of Haripur thanked the invited speaker for the valuable input and emphasized the quality of research in Information Technology as a backbone in the current and upcoming era. He also delivered vote of thanks at the end. Mr. Sehal Khan, Registrar, University of Haripur emphasized that this forum brings the IT community together and showed commitment to conduct the same cadre seminars (national/international) quite frequently in future.
