Now more than ever, technology is fueling growth and competitive advantage for companies in nearly every industry sector—driving market opportunities for technology companies to new levels. The use of machine learning, robotics, artificial intelligence (AI), and enterprise digitization, for example, are on many organizations' radars as they seek new ways to strategically drive efficiencies, expand market opportunities, and connect with customers.
The high tech workforce is changing as it grapples with several key issues, including the growth of more flexible and virtual work patterns and the rising demand for alternative skills and training. Diversity is also a critical issue in the technology industry, as is the push for non-traditional education to fill tech skill gaps. Employers increasingly have the need for skills beyond math/science by integrating artistic vision into the STEM professions.
Tech employment is growing at 2 times the national rate.
