Randstad's analysis identifies the needs that are already being generated in the field of big data, blockchain, robotics and cyber security.
The digitization boom is transforming the job market. And, as Randstad's consultant specialized in finding IT candidates, Tomás Casas points out, new job opportunities and challenges have arisen for professionals precisely in the technological field.
According to their analysis, by 2020 the most sought after profiles by organizations in all areas will correspond to jobs related to big data, blockchain, robotics and cyber security. "And it will be companies that have this type of worker that can deliver differential value to their customers, be at the forefront of technology and take the lead in the market of their industry," says the expert.
If it is deepened by the type of technology, it adds that the multisectoral tool that allows you to connect and encrypt blocks & # 39; to protect the privacy of all types of transactions and make them safer – so-called blockchain – will require profiles with programming knowledge, legal people, as well as experts in hardware and software architecture and economics.
In the case of the big data, Casas says there is a need to promote a new type of professional who brings knowledge in IT, but also manages value by putting technology at the service of business, so data analysts and architects are asked in big time.
In the field of cyber security, an area that is already growing and expanding, according to Casas, because the rapid development of new technology tools has led to the emergence of a number of fraudulent and illegal practices, "companies have begun to seek security for regulatory approach, data protection experts, processes and procedures, and ethical hacker consultants focusing on security and vulnerability analysis. "
Considering the Internet of Things (IoT), a concept that refers to a digital interconnection of everyday objects with the network, the specialist says that it will continue its expansion in the different areas of daily life, both in companies and in the market. In the logistics and hotel sector, for example, this type of appliance is already being used, so some snack bars have a terminal that notifies the customer when the order is ready and the traffic monitoring, measurement system The environment and the healthcare area, to name a few, will require experts in M2M telecommunications and the IoT architech solution, while digital channels will require digital business analyst and e-commerce delivery manager, "Casas says.
In Robotics, he says, developers or real-time RPA applications with high computer literacy and experience in process automation projects will be needed. "More and more companies are investing in this field because it creates significant savings and reduces people's workload so they can focus on higher-value tasks," he explains.
In any case, he emphasizes that the level of social skills these professionals must have is also high. "In fact, the market demands resilient, problem-solving people, prepared to live in a changing, empathic, emotionally intelligent environment to work in multidisciplinary environments, and prepared to collaborate with all departments of the company and with the global vision, "he says.
