IT Careers Today and Tomorrow
ABOUT THE SEMINAR
The rapid development of digital technologies and the explosion of social networks is changing both our daily lives and global business.
Unlimited access to information and new markets creates new opportunities and competition in all industries. This inevitably violates established business and operating models, but also requires an accelerated transformation of IT infrastructures and practices that are the backbone of today’s economy.
Accelerated transformation in the IT sphere creates an increasing need for up-to-date skills and capabilities that are needed for IT professionals today and in the next few years.
We will look at some of the “hottest” IT professions and skills that are and will continue to be sought on the global market.
Information Technology (IT) continues to change the way we live, play, and do business, so it should come as no surprise that IT is this year’s fastest growing career field, and will continue to be for years to come.
The dominance of the IT job market is due in part to numerous factors, including prolific growth of the Internet and e-commerce, lower hardware and software prices allowing more businesses to upgrade their technology, increased demand for information security specialists spurred by the escalating frequency and sophistication of cyber-crimes, the advent of smarter applications enabling companies to analyze data and develop unprecedented business intelligence, and the dawn of the mobile computing era.
For established IT professionals or those beginning an IT career path, this continues to be good news. However, despite rapid growth and increased opportunity, simply showing up will not guarantee success. The technology job market will continue to get more competitive as people go where the money and jobs are. This is why it’s important to clearly identify your career objectives and develop a learning plan with the necessary skills, to build a competitive edge and achieve your goals.
The information age has ushered in advances in computer and communication technology, advances that have sparked what has been termed the “information revolution.” At the heart of this revolution is the exponential demand for access to, management of, and transformation of information. Information technology drives the dynamic information infrastructure that has become integrated on a global scale socially, culturally, and economically. Databases. Apps. Computer software. Websites. Mobile data. Servers. Voice networks. Each part of the larger, interconnected informational ecosystem.
