We talk about technology a lot, and how it is being integrated into major industries. Everything from major business processes to smaller daily functions, it is clear that the adaption of technology is essential to the growth of any company.
In order to successfully integrate technology into your business, there is one thing for sure, you will need the proper skill set for tech efforts to be rewarding.
“67% of hiring managers plan to expand their IT teams; 89% say it’s challenging to find skilled professionals.” Robert Half reports.
As a hiring manager or higher executive, understanding what skills to look for is something that can really help while finding new employees. So, let’s dive in.
It is no surprise that cybersecurity makes the top of this list. Protecting inter-connected systems is crucial in the world of computers, tablets, the cloud, you name it. If you are a business professional, chances are you have moved on from the world of paper and are totally knee-deep in the technology puddle. Do you want to protect your data? Cybersecurity will help.
2. Cloud security
Ah, the cloud. Cloud computing seemed to be the biggest tech trend last year, and that has not changed. From major enterprises to small businesses, the cloud works to hold all important assets over the internet as opposed to hard drives, which could get messy. It puts your company’s data into one place. The goal is to make sure that place is hard to access, so your data does not end up in the wrong hands.
3. Cloud computing
Someone has to know how to get the data into the cloud, right? Alas, cloud computing. Your next tech hire should know the ins and the outs of the cloud, especially how to access resources seamlessly.
4. Database management
Database management is pretty much exactly what it sounds like, the skill to analyze data effectively in order to improve systems or processes for the entire company. If a company’s processes are outdated, or not working for the greater good of everyone, what is the point?
You may want to hire someone who can look into each process, the data, accounts, and then figure out what will make it better. Or, what to take away.
Overall, if you are in the market for some new tech talent, it is important to keep those 4 skills in mind. Don’t forget that technology and security go hand in hand, and when both work together, your company could be seamless.
