IT is a growing sector where there are many job offers. However, not all areas of digital are equal in the face of this demand. Some branches of the IT market are starting to saturate while others are facing a talent shortage… So if you want to take digital training, here is the list of the most in-demand IT jobs in 2023.
The 5 IT professions that are recruiting the most in 2023:
- Cybersecurity Expert
- Cloud Architect
- Data Analyst and Data Scientist
- DevOps Software Developer
- Support Technician
1. Cybersecurity Expert
With an increase in cyberattacks of more than 13% in 2021, the Cybersecurity Expert has logically become one of the most sought-after jobs in IT.
The increasing digitization of organizations and the rise of telework expose them more to phishing, ransomware and other cyber threats.
Small businesses and administrations are particularly vulnerable due to the lack of dedicated resources. And, to deal with cyber threats, many companies and start-ups specializing in cybersecurity are developing in France.
But, the biggest threat to the field of cybersecurity is not a virus or a flaw… It is actually the lack of experts in this sector.
2. Cloud Architect
Cloud computing or cloud computing is one of the main pillars of growth in the IT job market. Companies and organizations are turning to this “remote and on-demand” IT service model to adapt to the new way of working and increase their productivity and flexibility.
Over 70% of organizations use at least one cloud service. On the other hand, they are barely 15% in France to fully exploit the full potential of this cloud computing. In question, a lack of knowledge, training, resources and often complicated migrations from a traditional computer system to cloud computing.
This is where the Cloud Architect, also called Cloud Engineer, comes in. This cloud computing expert’s main mission is to analyze the needs of organizations in terms of cloud hosting and then to design and unlock the appropriate solutions.
3. Data Analyst and Data Scientist
The other pillar of IT job growth is undoubtedly artificial intelligence or AI.
But, to work, computer learning and deep learning technologies need to process and analyze billions of heterogeneous pieces of information, this is called massive data or Big Data.
The Data Analyst’s mission is then to use this data to generate useful business information. He can, for example, model databases or create statistical reports in order to provide managers with the elements necessary for their decision-making and strategy.
The Data Scientist has a more scientific profile. In particular, he has skills in “Data Visualization” which allow him to carry out studies and predictive analyses. To simplify, the Data Analyst will respond to the needs and questions of organizations while the Data Scientist will predict future needs and anticipate changes.
Data Analysts and Data Scientists therefore occupy central places within a company, because they contribute to the strategy of the latter. These specialists are sought after by industries, commercial enterprises, companies in the stock market, finance or even medical organizations.
4. DevOps Software Developer
The software developer is one of the oldest professions on the IT market. However, it is still one of the most sought-after profiles. Despite the crisis, software publishers and digital service companies are expected to grow by almost 7% in 2023. They will seek to recruit even more software developers and may also face a talent shortage.
Small novelty however, organizations are looking more for DevOps profiles.
DevOps is an IT practice that aims to merge development and operations (i.e. all deployment and integration operations). The Devops developer has therefore become a strategic position since it allows the company to benefit from faster and more agile development. The skills of this Swiss army knife of the web are highly prized by CIOs and the Software Developer undoubtedly remains a sought-after profession in 2023.
5. Support Technician
The cloud, AI, but also the health crisis have disrupted the way organizations operate. Employees had to learn, often urgently, new software and applications and adapt their way of working.
This transition has not been without difficulty and in many companies the massive deployment of teleworking has accentuated inequalities in access to digital technology. Some employees even suffer from “illectronism”, that is to say an inability to use digital tools due to a lack of training or knowledge.
To support their employees and safeguard their productivity and functioning, many companies seek to recruit support technicians. These digital professionals are primarily responsible for intervening in the event of an incident on the applications, the network or the server. They now also aim to meet the assistance needs of users and often to organize training to help them get to grips with digital solutions.
