The rise of information technology in the 21st century has been compared to the industrial revolution in the 20th century, and not without reason. In India alone, the IT sector has increased its contribution to India’s GDP from 1.2% in 1998 to 7.7% in 2017. The industry has seen revenues go up to as high as US $180 billion in 2019. Numerous Indian metropolises have seen their economies and populations balloon as millions of people continue to seek careers in IT.
The IT sector has grown from a small but burgeoning industry focused on niche technological innovations in the 1990s, to an industry that has made inroads into nearly every single sector of business and commerce, as well as private life. With more recent innovations like the Internet of Things (IoT), we are developing a new perspective into our relationship with the technologies we use on a daily basis. It’s also given rise to legal concerns regarding ownership of technology, and data privacy.
