The rise of VR, AI and machine learning across many industries; the increasing popularity of “smart city” concepts in Australia and globally; the proliferation of cloud technology; the growing need for smarter and better cybersecurity mechanisms for business and government alike; and the connectivity requirements of an increasingly dispersed workforce, mean IT skills are more in-demand than ever. At the same time, there have been massive job cuts within the sector, particularly with tech giants such as Microsoft, Alphabet, Meta, IBM and Salesforce winding back their operations following rapid growth during the pandemic years of 2020 to 2022. On their face those figures seem at odds with the rapid sector growth forecast by the Tech Council of Australia just last August. Yet anecdotally, even IT professionals who have lost their jobs remain optimistic . They’re pursuing new opportunities with start-ups, or taking solace in the long-term desirability of their skills and experience. Are you looking for IT staff or a career in IT? Contact our specialist recruiters today. Amazon Web Services recently announced a $13 billion investment to expand its cloud computing operations in Australia, evidence the local IT industry is far from broken. That investment alone is expected to bring 11,000 full-time-equivalent positions to Melbourne and Sydney. With all that in mind we look at why, despite recent setbacks, there are good reasons to be optimistic about the future of IT in Australia. Emerging technologies More and more companies are leveraging AI and machine learning technologies to improve their operations and develop new products and services. Virtual and augmented reality technologies are finding applications in everything from gaming and entertainment to defence and education. Robotics, too, will play an increasingly central role across many industries, which is good news not only for mechanical engineers but also for professionals with experience and skills developing the software and interfaces needed to drive the robots. These technologies are only going to become more sophisticated, and there will be a growing need for companies to continue innovating and driving that growth. They will need teams with the skills in research and development, software engineering and other core IT skills, who are adaptable and able to keep upskilling and evolving to remain on the cutting edge. The CSIRO has predicted such technologies “will transform economies and the basis of competition globally, unlock new societal and environmental value and accelerate scientific discovery”. “Digital technologies will be one of the key drivers of new industries in coming decades,” they say. There is so much future potential for companies that are active in these spaces. The digital economy A report from RMIT suggests 87 per cent of all jobs now require some form of tech skills, with that number expected to rise. The pandemic years of 2020 to 2022 accelerated the digital revolution in Australia and around the world, but it was already well and truly underway prior to that. Fast forward to 2023, and areas like e-commerce, robotics and virtual reality are booming. More dispersed workforces have led to a greater reliance on digital communication and collaboration platforms. Companies of all sizes are embracing cloud-based technologies (more on that below). Digital technologies have become central not just to our daily lives, but the economy as a whole. The Tech Council of Australia is driving a national ambition for Australia to become a regional tech hub. Its report in August 2022 notes that 2.3 per cent of the world’s tech unicorns have come from Australia, even though our share of global GDP is just 1.6 per cent. Australia has been a lead innovator in areas like business software, biotech , medical devices, media and design, and pay tech. True, the direct tech sector in Australia is currently only 3.8 per cent of GDP. That compares with 6.8 per cent in Canada, and 10.2 per cent in the US. What it equates to though, according to the Tech Council, is room to grow. This, combined with a will to take “a systematic and considered approach to growing the tech ecosystem”, could see Australia flourish as a global tech heavyweight. Tech talent to spare The most recent ABS data revealed a 36 per cent increase since 2016 in the number of people with an IT qualification, with the number sitting at 470,318 as of 2021. There were significant increases in security science (5,805 people qualified, up 460 per cent since 2016); artificial intelligence (630, up 200 per cent) and software and applications programmers (116,927, up 47 per cent). It’s a significant workforce that will continue to grow (and specialist recruiters like Bayside Group have the industry knowledge and connections they need to help companies tap into it ). Professor Barney Tan, Head of the School of Information Systems and Technology Management at the University of NSW Business School, has flagged even the recent mass layoffs at companies like Google as a major opportunity for Australian IT . According to Tan, rather than purely a downturn, the downsizing at Google and other tech giants is more a matter of talent being redistributed. Workers who have been nurtured in Silicon Valley will instead find their way to start-ups and other small and mid-sized companies, where they can help drive innovation and growth even further. The contraction of these larger global companies, he says, could even see an influx of international IT workers to Australia from places like the US and UK – which is good news for an industry that has ambitious growth targets. Cyber and cloud security needs As the world becomes more connected, the risk of cyberattacks is increasing, and those attacks are likely to become more sophisticated as technology evolves. In both government and business worlds cybersecurity experts are in demand , working to develop and implement security protocols and systems to protect against potential attacks. This is doubly important as more and more companies move their infrastructure and operations to cloud based platforms. Gartner has estimated that by 2025, more than 95 per cent of new digital workloads will be deployed on cloud-native platforms, up from 30 per cent in 2021. Furthermore, it predicts that by 2025 more than 85 per cent of organisations will embrace a cloud-first principle. As such, the demand for professionals who can design and implement secure cloud environments is growing rapidly. Australian IT companies and professionals will be eager to continue developing these capabilities locally. Lifelong learning The IT industry is, by its nature, constantly evolving. In particular, the automation of many tasks that formerly would be done manually has had an impact on companies’ workforce needs. While it’s an industry that will continue to be central to the Australian economy , IT professionals need more than ever to continually diversify and enhance their skill sets in order to keep pace with rapid change. Rather than a career-for-life, it’s a matter of lifelong learning. Both the professionals themselves, and the companies that employ them, need to continually seek opportunities to develop and grow their skillsets, to not just keep pace with change but help drive the future of IT in Australia. Bayside Group’s specialist recruiters are experienced at matching IT professionals with the companies that need them.

But longevity with an employer has its advantages too, including for career progression, building relationships and networks, long service leave, and establishing yourself as an expert.
