Evolution of Business Analyst (BA) Profession in the Industry

During the initial days of IT evolution, the main administrative objective of the organization was to automate the recurring tasks related to data using computers so as to reduce the cost of employing personnel, along with the other objective such as converting the paper work to the electronic data for easy storage and retrieval.

Moving from e-learning to m-Learning

While I was evaluating one of the e-learning application platforms I realized that in the world of smart phones and tablets how dead and dumb the overall learning experience appears on the web. It’s no brainer that m Learning is here to stay and outrun the e-learning. The entire effort of e-learning program goes towards designing of courseware (getting course goals, create content, understand the profile of target audience, instruction models etc. say for example an Insurance company creating a courseware for providing training to thousands of insurance agents across the country). You set a tone and guidelines of the course, structure the content and end user at the other end has little choice to maneuver.

The client must still ensure they are using the service in a compliant manner, and is also ultimately responsible for the security of their CHD (irrespective of what cloud service they are using) and use of a PCI DSS compliant Cloud Service Provider (CSP) does not result in PCI DSS compliance for the clients.
