Economic experts and analyzers have suggested that the IT industry will have grown by over twenty percent by 2020. This is a massive increase for any industry in just three years and it is interesting to examine why this is happening. What is pushing this industry to new heights and why might it be a smart time to start thinking about your own career working with computers?
If you wanted to study IT at university just ten years ago your options were limited. Even some of the top colleges across the country were not bothering to offer courses in this field or industry. But things have changed and in some countries IT is now one of the top, most highly sought out courses. More and more young students are looking to break into the tech industry. This is due to the promises of places like Silicon Valley where small startups can grow into massive success stories overnight. Build an app in your bedroom and eventually you could be selling it for millions online. That’s the dream and it’s one many developers are now buying into.
If you want to begin exploring the tech industry it’s easy to get started. You can find all the software and information you need online. It’s possible to take a class in coding with a web seminar and in just a few months be ready to develop your first piece of software. Then, you can download a platform like JIRA for software testing and creations. You can find more about that on sites such as https://www.qasymphony.com/software-testing-tools/integrations/jira-test-management/. Once you have done this, you can spend the rest of the year tweaking the product, ensuring that it’s ready for sale. Then it’s just matter of finding the demand but there’s good news there.
We guarantee that if you create a piece of IT software that works there will be at least one person interested in buying it or using it in the real world. With the right marketing and promotion you can multiply that number by ten. Bare in mind that you’re probably not going to start with one customer but something closer to a hundred. So, in your first week on the market, you could easily sell to a thousand people. As word quickly spreads and reviews are released, that demand will grow further still. Look around you, and you’ll see that the entire world is based on technology now. There’s no industry or home that doesn’t need it. Does this mean success with a new business in the IT industry is guaranteed? Of course not but you’ll have multiple chances and ways to fix the situation.
In 2030 experts believe that most jobs are going to be completed with automated software. The only people with job security are going to be those in charge of creating and building that software. Anyone else will struggle to find a place in the economy. It should come as no surprise then that analysts are expecting the IT industry to boom. One day we might all be working on tech development and computer coding. Believe it or not, this is the direction that we’re heading in.
