Meeting the ICT skills demand in the region
As the nature of work changes and as we use technology to address community and consumer needs, the need for people with advanced and fundamental technology skills increases.
Even as we can automate some tasks, there is value in both people who can program these automations and in people who leverage automation towards achieving business goals and improving team and customer experiences.
260,000 people will be needed in the technology workforce by 2025, according to the Technology Council of Australia. Beyond niche and specialist tech roles, the need for digital skills impacts professionals across industries. LinkedIn research found a shift in work towards a skills-based approach, with an increased emphasis on technical upskilling across most industries, particularly those in professional services such as information technology and business.
In New Zealand, the 2020 Digital Skills Survey found that employers anticipate needing 4-5,000 new digital technology professionals annually into the near future. The survey suggests the highest demand is for software developers, data analysts and cybersecurity experts.In addition, the shift from traditional on-premise computing to cloud omputing is driving demand for skills related to cloud-native environments such as Azure and AWS.
LinkedIn's Jobs on the Rise list indicates that the rapid and continued shift towards digitalisation leads to job growth for tech specialists who understand how to drive business growth and mitigate risks in the Philippines. These include roles like Insights Analysts, Delivery Specialists and Project Managers, Agile Product Owners, Data Engineers, DevOps Engineers, Cyber Security Specialists and Cloud Engineers.
