The Dig­i­tal Dis­rup­tion cou­pled with au­to­ma­tion has com­pletely changed the na­ture of tech skills re­quired for to­day’s ICT jobs – as an or­ga­ni­za­tion how are you cop­ing with sourc­ing the right skills? Be­sides IT and in­for­ma­tion ser­vices, ris­ing ICT in­ten­sity will in­crease de­mand for these pro­fes­sion­als namely in e-com­merce, fi­nan­cial ser­vices (where the fur­ther growth of web-based ser­vices and data ex­plo­ration is ex­pected) and in real es­tate be­sides sci­en­tific and tech­ni­cal ac­tiv­i­ties. Dig­i­tal­iza­tion will also in­vite more ICT pro­fes­sion­als to man­u­fac­tur­ing, ed­u­ca­tion and health­care in­dus­try.

ICT pro­fes­sion­als are a highly skilled ta­lent pool. The pen­e­tra­tion of ICT across busi­ness pro­cesses, prod­ucts and ser­vices will sus­tain the trend for high qual­i­fi­ca­tion re­quire­ment among these pro­fes­sion­als as long as 2025. ICT is a gen­eral pur­pose tech­nol­ogy and hence, changes and dis­rup­tions in the econ­omy can have a sig­nif­i­cant in uence on the fu­ture skill de­mands for pro­fes­sion­als em­ployed in this in­dus­try.

Fur­ther, dig­i­ti­za­tion of econ­omy cou­pled with au­to­ma­tion will boost de­mand for peo­ple with deep knowl­edge of mul­ti­ple sec­tors, who are able to de­velop ef­fi­cient, cus­tombased ICT so­lu­tions for any com­pany/or­ga­ni­za­tions, from health­care-providers and to farms and lo­gis­tics ones.

What are some in­ter­est­ing job-re­lated trends to sur­face in 2018?

Big Data trend will lead an in­creas­ing de­mand for strong data an­a­lyt­ics skills along with skills for scal­ing and man­ag­ing the data for en­ter­prises. New job prospects as Data Sci­en­tists, Data Man­agers, and Chief Data Of­fi­cers will emerge The shift to­wards cloud com­put­ing will need ex­perts on ser­vice in­te­gra­tion, ser­vice man­age­ment, de­sign­ing and man­ag­ing clouds, be­sides build­ing and op­ti­miz­ing cloud data cen­ters. Com­bined skills in Cloud Com­put­ing and DevOps can make one a Mas­ter of De­vel­op­ment and Op­er­a­tions. A po­tent com­bi­na­tion, skilling in both these tech­nolo­gies will give tech­nol­ogy pro­fes­sion­als an im­mense ad­van­tage and a lu­cra­tive ca­reer path. With more in­vest­ment in ad­vanced robots, vir­tual per­sonal as­sis­tants, au­tonomous ve­hi­cles and smart home hubs, the de­mand for Deep Learn­ing ex­pert and pro­fes­sion­als who can pro­gram machines to think, an­a­lyze and take de­ci­sions i.e. Ro­botic Process Au­to­ma­tion and Ar­ti­fi­ciaI In­tel­li­gence and Blockchain skills will be in high de­mand. IoT will drive the de­mand for an un­der­stand­ing of stan­dard­iza­tion and in­ter­op­er­abil­ity be­tween con­nected and to-be-con­nected sys­tems. IoT de­vel­op­ers, IoT so­lu­tion ar­chi­tect, and IoT prod­uct man­agers will be the new lead­ing po­si­tions. It’s im­por­tant to have ex­per­tise on the most pop­u­lar tools un­der this tech­nol­ogy i.e. Rasp­berry Pi, Ar­duino, Python Azure IoT Hub & Azure Stor­age Google’s IoT core de­vice man­ager Hence, sourc­ing the below top trend­ing tech­nolo­gies will help to boost the ICT in­dus­try growth to a great ex­tent: 1. Ar­ti­fi­cial In­tel­li­gence 2. Blockchain 3. Aug­mented Real­ity and Vir­tual Real­ity 4. Cloud Com­put­ing and DevOps 5. In­ter­net of Things (IoT) 6. In­tel­li­gent Apps (I – Apps) 7. Big Data 8. RPA (Ro­botic Process Au­to­ma­tion) 9. Data Sci­ence
