All market sectors are embracing new digital and technological advances to ensure they remain competitive (source: Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA)). The prevalence of digital technologies in industry is resulting in a growing demand for savvy IT professionals across a diverse range of sectors and roles.
Fields such as data science, business process management, process mining, artificial intelligence, machine learning, cyber security, virtual and augmented reality, business analytics, data visualisation, and the Internet of Things continue to evolve rapidly. Business investment in these areas continues to grow, as does the demand for expertise in these areas (source: Australia’s Digital Pulse, ACS/Deloitte).
