Analytics & Big Data
When the industry starts talking in zettabytes, you know the world of data has exploded. Talent with skills in this field are in higher demand than ever. As a serious amount of data is being produced by the consumer, businesses need professionals who can help them to store, analyse, interpret, and sell it, with the aim of deriving meaningful and valuable insights to grow the business.
In recent years, there has been a shift in how businesses and individuals interact with and consume technology. This has resulted in an entirely new ecosystem of vendors and service providers around Iaas, SaaS and PaaS. This means companies are capable of developing and launching products at a scale we have not seen before. As these models continue to evolve, so have the skills required to build a sustainable and profitable business in the new world of cloud.
Billions of dollars are being spent on the very real problem of protecting digital systems, assets and infrastructure. Cyber crime is having a significant impact on governments, citizens and corporations globally, which has spurred huge investments in sophisticated technology to protect and defend against cyber attacks. This highly complex and sensitive domain requires professionals with extensive technology expertise, as well as unwavering ethics and integrity.
The mobile revolution has fundamentally shifted how businesses and consumers communicate with each other. Entire new businesses models – both B2B and B2C – have been created with the advent of the smartphone, and being “mobile-first” has become a necessity. The need for businesses to capitalize on this has created huge demand for talent with mobile technology skills, both for traditional companies looking to reengineer products, as well as innovative start-ups.
For some businesses, digital transformation is about leveraging existing systems and assets, while for others it is a new world entirely. Technology plays such a pivotal role in most companies today, that there are a huge range of opportunities for firms to radically reshape how they do business. Roles such as Chief Digital Officer and Head of Digital Marketing are now commonplace to help drive this change, and we work with both technology vendors and large corporates to locate and acquire these digital disruptors.
