Technology in Brand Experience

Brand experience is a type of experiential marketing that incorporates a holistic set of conditions created by a company to influence the feeling a customer has about a particular product or a company. We live in a rapidly changing world, driven by advances in technology, design and social expectations. Today's consumers, value experiences more than material goods and expect those experiences to speak to them on a personal level. Brands have to amaze, dazzle and create truly memorable experiences for the customers to increase the customer’s loyalty. As a result, brand experiences should be at the center of any well-conceived marketing strategy. The use of technology to bring about the brand experience is snowballing. Virtual reality, augmented reality, 3D printing and gesture recognition are being used in the modern markets for brand experience. This a call for all developers and programmers to develop technologies for personalized services, eye-catching campaigns and increased efficiency of the buying process to make customers turn their heads

Sustainability

Sustainability focuses on meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. It is about the various ways in which life can be made sustainable on earth. Reduction in pollution, waste management, prevention of soil degrading, and many more sustainable development goals are to be reached. Natural gas, which produces fewer pollutants than either oil or coal, is in abundant supply and can play an important role in the transition to an economy much less dependent on fossil fuels. Smart agriculture allows farmers to maximize yields using minimal resources such as water, fertilizer and seeds. By deploying sensors and mapping fields, farmers can begin to understand their crops at a micro-scale, conserve resources and reduce impacts on the environment. While some needed innovations can be fostered through existing public and private mechanisms at the national level, such efforts have proven inadequate to meet global sustainability goals. The need of the hour is to come up with new technological findings that will contribute to realizing the potential of science and technology to meet the most pressing sustainable development challenges.

Future Mobility

The world is on the apex of a transport technological revolution. The combination of electric vehicles, mobility as a service and autonomous transport will transform the way we live and work. It's the need of the hour to use our potential to the fullest and future mobility is the answer to most of the problems faced by the majority in today's world. With the aim of removing all diesel and petrol run cars from the roads by 2030, companies like McKinsey, Deloitte and KPMG have begun with their research and development of autonomous cars. These extraordinary ideas of autonomous vehicles will change the way humans plan their commute from point A to B, take a lot of load off the environment, speed up health care, deliveries etc. It's not far, just a few miles away to be the change. Grab the chance to showcase the programmer inside you and be the developer for future mobility

IT Security

In today's world, IT security is top priority. Because as the hackers get smarter, the need to protect our digital assets and network devices is even greater. And, of course, it’s the right thing to do because protecting our data’s security is the same as protecting our most important asset. Because not protecting our data leads to enormous consequences including Legal Liability, Negative Brand Perception, Increased Vulnerability and Repeated attacks etc. So, put on your thinking caps as it's time to develop from the scratch and this is your chance to become the next top IT Security personnel in the industry. Come develop and lead.

Tourism

Tourism accounts for around 9.8% of India’s GDP. Whether our tourists are domestic or foreign, they generate a large amount of revenue for our nation and the numbers are only growing. With exponential growth in an industry comes exponential growth in the number of problems faced by people of that industry. In tourism’s case, the problems faced by tourists and by the businesses attracting, accommodating, and entertaining tourists are thousandfold and may hinder the success of the industry in the future. In this fast-paced world, tourists are demanding efficient ways to travel and see all the sights regardless of their familiarity with the places they visit. Stretch out your fingers and warm up your brain before using your technical skills to come up with a potential solution for this hotbed of issues!

Defence

Whether we talk about self defence or country's defence, computer technology plays a mandatory role in both of them. It is said that necessity is the mother of invention and today we need innovative gadgets to secure our country and its people. Female fraction of the world needs to be empowered with technology. Recently, a boy from Ahemdabad has developed a drone that can destroy landmines. Similarly, we need technologies that can track down people if they are lost on adventure sports and treks or similar trips for their security. For example, Solar battery operated devices can be developed which can direct infrared waves of the sun towards the sky when turned on and these signals will be captured by satellites and rescue operations may be carried out. And now it's your time strain your nerves to find out innovative options which are not only fruitful for our nation but also help you shine bright.
