Technology and career trends usually determine the way a year is shaped for the IT industry. These trends can seem both elusive and temporary, but they become integral to business and IT strategies, building the backbone of tomorrow’s technology innovations. Few businesses sense a threat out of the latest technology trends, while some count on them to lead in their respective industries. Whatever the case may be, the change brought by technologies is imminent.

In 2018, many technologies hit the global market. Some were embraced while some waited for the dust to settle down. But 2019 is the time to take it up a notch. This is the year when companies are exhibiting an eagerness to unfold the potentials of technologies. 2019 is also expected to witness huge investments in market disruptors. It is going to be a significant year technology-wise, since a lot of big brands are looking to grow their ranks. As a result, the demand for futuristic technologies like Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, RPA, etc. are predicted to hit the records.

Ironically, this positive job outlook is being overlooked with a rearing skill gap in the technologies that are predicted to lead job creation in the coming years. The emerging technology jobs lie vacant while a majority of applicants are knocking on employers’ doors with a desire to bag their dream jobs. There is an urgent need to mend this skill gap with Up-skilling. Up-skilling with futuristic technologies is no longer a choice. Tech professionals need to up-skill 15-20 times if they wish to stay relevant in today’s competitive and ever-evolving IT industry.

So, what do these career trends show?

A number of career portals announced survey results listing the most popular technologies of 2019. We decided to test the sentiment on the ground and asked technology professionals which job titles they aspire to land in the future. Around 500 technology professionals answered our survey, and based on the results, here is an Infographic illustrating the technologies that are attracting attention in 2019. The survey results also show that professionals want to upgrade to in-demand technology careers to improve the quality of their work, get promoted and bag a bigger paycheck.
