Two and a half quintillion bytes of data are created every day (source: http://archive.ibmsystemsmag.com/mainframe/business-strategy/green-it/power_crunch/). In addition, automation is increasingly being used to streamline many tasks and make them more efficient. This is likely to increase exponentially in the coming years with the emergence of 5G network technology and the Internet of Things (IoT).
Many private companies and governments all over the world are utilizing data analytics and automation to improve decision-making and maximize results in a wide range of fields. Sri Lanka should also implement such practices. With this in mind, we should encourage our human resources, particularly the youth, to make full use of this technology.
