While the COVID-19 pandemic has yet to end, due to the new COVID-19 variant it starts their wave of impact from place to place. Current rollout of vaccines is not seen and can stop it yet.
Faced with the overall market willing to spend is no high, most of the sector is affected due to national lockdown, forced restricted operating and distance policy, we will continue to see massive unemployment, since most of the enterprise will focus on being survival for this no sure yet to be end crisis. You are not surprised even a lot of big corporations are rightsizing, chop off non-core business and property, or are taking merge and acquisition to make sure it will survive this wave for the change.
Automation, cloud adoption at the all time high, cloud migration is being accelerated. One of the immediate issues to be resolved, excessive staff that are not ready for the new business requirements. Enterprises want people possessing DevSecOps, can handle K8-orchestration systems, containers, make the seamless integration and continuous governance and compliance, and need microservices. But the reskilling will not take short time, so it suddenly creates a gap for either the new one who has those competencies already or to spend the time to reskilling. Let put aside who is responsible for the reskilling, whether for the said individual employee or whether the enterprise found it worth reskilling or hire the new replacement. The question is the new wave of change is coming, and you are either ready or you are not.
Even before COVID-19 pandemic happened, the industry had shifted, most of the high computing power is increasing demand on those datacenter and cloud service providers. While most of the enterprises reduce their spending in the hardware, since the operation moved toward cloud. Under the trends, the less and less for the open job will open for the hardware side for the IT job. As the new requirement is someone who can make use of the cloud infrastructure to provision, setup, scale and maintain the application in the cloud infrastructure.
All new waves of the job are open for the Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data, Cloud Computing, Artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), Blockchain, and even to the Linux server administration, python and web application development. You can see Microsoft and Mac are open for Linux, IBM bought RedHat, without doubt, the Digital Transformation (DT), the mean for the next wave, will be heavily shifted toward all the innovation and technologies open up from the Linux world. Are you ready for it?
