The essential skill of digital literacy

In today's fast paced digital world, businesses rely on technology not only to compete but to survive. This makes digital literacy essential for any professional. Achieving it involves more than simply using digital tools but being able to evaluate digital resources to improve performance, create and manage data and collaborate in virtual environments.
