Global Technology and Service Trends Influencing Irish ICT Skills Demand
The Diver BI group is already working on sharing their deep expertise in ICT and transversal business and entrepreneurship skills to drive increased business value and and innovation from the use of ICT within an enterprise – in conjunction with third level institutions and enterprise.
Over the last 10 years their many clients in the UK and Ireland have benefited from their professional knowledge as well as the ever-evolving Diver Solution and other new DI technologies which offer customisation and extensibility for dealing with the latest demands of the industry. This continuity has enabled their clients to stay in key positions within their own markets and survive the tough conditions which have prevailed since the economic recession.
This quote from yesterday’s (4th November 2013) Irish government report highlights the same trends that Dimensional Insight has seen coming and has been incorporating into its product suite over the last few years – indicating DI’s strength and versatility to meet the upcoming ICT challenges over the next 7 years.
“The ICT industry is in the midst of a “once every 20–25 years” shift to a new technology platform for growth and innovation (the Third Platform) that is expected to dominate the market by 2020. This “Third Platform” is characterised by the disruptive combination of the following technologies:
- Adoption of cloud computing, a disruptive delivery model for IT software and services, based on flexible and on-demand business models;
– Rapid penetration of mobile devices and technologies, including mobile apps and M2M, (machine to machine) connectivity through billions of sensors (the Internet of things);
- Emergence of Big Data analytics, driven by the huge increase of data generated by mobile devices and the Internet;
- Adoption of social technologies, migrating from the personal to the business environment, with a profound effect on business and social interactions within enterprises and in supply chains.”
