IT industry insiders predict future of job market
By: Taiwan News
KPMG Taiwan cooperated with Harvey Nash to survey 3,645 CIOs across 108 countries and released the report "2019 Harvey Nash/KPMG CIO Survey." In general, 2019 has been a good year for IT development because industry budgets have increased and wages are also on the rise.
According to the report, 33 percent of CIOs around the globe think that AI and automation will replace more than 20 percent of the workers by 2024. In the Asia-Pacific region, 44 percent of the CIOs agree with the trend, perhaps because the region has been largely dedicated to outsourcing services.
However, 54 percent of CIOs in the Asia-Pacific region believe that the number of employees in the technological sector will still rise next year. Likewise, the prediction indicates that the need for talented people will not shrink. [FULL STORY]
