The application of this technology will continue to proliferate beyond virtual assistants such as Siri and Alexa, with social media networks using it for facial recognition, and machine learning coming into the broader business world, predicts James Milligan.

Data Analysts

According to a report, data analysts will become increasingly more important in all industries by 2020.

Survey respondents said they expect to have a greater demand for data analysts because they will need help making sense of all of the data generated by technological disruptions.

Data Security Administrator

Handling large amounts of data requires a dedication to security to protect your business, employees, clients and customers. Data security admins are responsible for defining network security requirements, ensuring all security measures are up to date, monitoring company-wide security practices and implementing security strategies.

Cloud Architect

With all of this connectivity and data, the infrastructure has to be in place to support this growth. 2017 saw demand increase for AWS and Azure experience, and we expect this trend to continue into next year, writes Milligan.

SQL Database Developer

Many individuals believe that SQL development will continue to be in high demand long into the future and for very good reason.
