A tsunami has the power to bring about a sea of change, and in a similar fashion, Abhijit Bhaduri Digital India initiative has been nothing short of a tsunami. It has taken millions of citizens under its influence and continues to do so with its full might. The digital world is changing organisations and businesses faster than anyone could imagine. One such vertical that has come under the waves of the digitalisation is HR, being at the forefront of this metamorphosis. Software applications are ubiquitous in this environment, ranging from boosting in office collaboration, working remotely, attracting the right talent or even reaching out to them.

It is imperative that in this era of digital transformation, one has to adopt methods to adapt to the pervasive universe of technology and connectivity. Digital Tsunami is the right book for you, if you are looking at avoiding being swept aside by this tsunami. The author, takes readers through a tour of the new corporate world, increasingly taken over by a tsunami of technological innovations.

At a time, where smartphones and connected devices have become pervasive, it has become imperative for organisations and employees alike to emphasise on the imminent digital vulnerabilities present. Technology has driven the change much faster in the 21st century. With the increasing BYOD (bring your own device) culture, integration of Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI) well on its way into workspace, the book lends itself more prominence among the current crop of workforce. It talks about the present digital era, which is thought provoking and will require us to transform the way we work, and most importantly ourselves.

Using the metaphor of a tsunami, the author describes how our world is getting digitally submerged, highlights the necessary steps required to adapt and how to implement the same. With personal anecdotes, Bhaduri makes the book more realistic and relatable for the readers. He also substitutes his theories with the help of sketches and illustrations which act as an icing on the cake.

Bhaduri deconstructs the science of developing a digital routine, along with sharing references and importance of a learning mind-set. Each industry has unique challenges and requirements when it comes to technological digitalisation of data and important documents. The book offers a good insight for top management, HR practitioners and even employees as to how the future of workplaces is shaping up.
