The future of IT jobs: A business leader’s guide
AI, big data, cloud computing, and automation are driving the IT job market in new directions. This ebook explores some of the ways IT roles are changing, which skills will be sought after, and how the IT industry will adapt to the new business demands.
From the ebook:
As more companies undergo digital transformation, in-demand IT roles will shift by 2020 to include positions focused on advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), augmented and virtual reality (AR and VR), and the Internet of Things (IoT).
“Demand for tech workers continues to grow at a pace that’s unmatched in other industries,” said Raj Mukherjee, senior vice president of product at job search site Indeed. Several in-demand roles right now, such as full stack developer, will continue to attract heavy growth in the coming few years, while some newer positions will gain prominence as well, Mukherjee said.
A mix of tech and business skills will be required for nearly every position, according to CompTIA chief technology evangelist James Stanger.
“People have been talking for a long time about digital transformation of business,” Stanger said. “We’re going to see a lot of defined job roles either being radically redefined or even just go away. I think an IT skill set will remain valuable, but it has to be in regard to business. Too long, those things have been kept in siloes.”
