Programme Management is the action of carrying out the coordinated organization, direction and implementation of a dossier of projects and transformation activities to achieve outcomes and realize benefits of strategic importance to the business.
Project Management is the planning, delegating, monitoring and control of all aspects of a project (a temporary organization with the purpose of delivering specific results).

Big Data refers to humongous volumes of data that cannot be processed effectively with the traditional applications that exist. The processing of Big Data begins with the raw data that isn’t aggregated and is most often impossible to store in the memory of a single computer.
Data science is a concept used to tackle big data and includes data cleansing, preparation, and analysis. A data scientist gathers data from multiple sources and applies machine learning, predictive analytics, and sentiment analysis to extract critical information from the collected data sets. They understand data from a business point of view and can provide accurate predictions and insights that can be used to power critical business decisions.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is intelligence demonstrated by machines, making it possible for them to learn from experience and perform human-like tasks. The majority of modern AI examples rely on deep learning and natural language processing, and these technologies enable computers to process large quantities of data and recognise patterns within that data to complete specific tasks and activities.
Cloud computing involves delivering different types of services over the internet. It can be anything and includes accessing and storing programs and data, security solutions, analytics, and various other functions.
Blockchain is a list of records called blocks that store data publicly and in chronological order. The information is encrypted using cryptography to ensure that the privacy of the user is not compromised and data cannot be altered.
The Internet of Things is a continuously-growing network of objects and devices that feature ports for internet connectivity and possess an IT address. The IoT, as it’s known, links these devices together, and facilitates transmission of data between these devices. The IoT environment allows people to transmit data over a network with the help of unique identifiers without any human to human contact or human to computer interaction.
Software development is the process of conceiving, specifying, designing, programming, documenting, testing, and bug fixing involved in creating and maintaining applications, frameworks, or other software components.
