- Multiple Hurricanes
- Major fires in Northern and Southern California
- Political uncertainty as to wither tax reform would be passed by the U.S. Congress
Natural disaster have a short term negative impact on IT job market growth but recover within 30 to 90 days. On the other hand, political uncertainty has a much more lasting negative impact. In our opinion that was the primary driver for the sluggish growth of the IT job market in 2018.
With the passage of the Tax Reform bill, trillions of dollars will be repatriated and be invested in the U.S economy. That will result in the need for more a better technology infrastructure - meaning more new jobs.
Based on budgets and plans for 2018 made by enterprises operating in the U.S. we see that there will be major development efforts places in several areas:
- Blockchain applications making seamless transaction processing
- Big Data applications that will focus on customized sales, marketing and service programs
- Digital and Social marketing that will focus on the next population wave - the Millennials.
- IoT applications that will become even more pervasive as more device types and applications are implemented.
- Security and reputation protection will be addressed in a more robust fashion. CIOs and CSOs know that their careers depend on protection from cyberattacks and meeting mandated compliance requirements.
