Technology has made rapid advancement during the last few decades. Software, big data analysis, fiber optics, drones, image recognition, artificial intelligence e.g., now have a big role to play in growth of different industrial sectors. Internet has become an inseparable part of every industrial sector thus inventing new ways of doing smart businesses globally.
For instance, Banks and other major organizations are using big data to understand consumer behavior to serve customers better.
