Updated February 14, 2019 15:57:24Web designers, web developers and web developers need to get in the act to help their clients get more traffic to their websites.
In fact, the number of web developers is set to double in the next four years, according to research firm eMarketer, with the total number of websites expected to jump by 1.5 times by 2023, the company’s report showed.
Web designers also need to ensure their work is relevant and that it’s not just for marketing purposes, the report said.
The web is not the only area of the IT world where the IT sector is becoming more and more important to businesses, with cloud computing becoming the fastest-growing industry sector in the past four years.
Cloud computing services have increased their revenue by more than 400 per cent since the beginning of the year, according, and cloud computing services are expected to overtake the IT services market by the end of 2019, the firm said.
It said that the number and type of cloud computing solutions are changing rapidly and that businesses need to become more efficient and adaptive in their IT operations.
“This is particularly true for cloud computing, where customers are now expected to invest more in cloud computing than they did two years ago, as their IT budget increases, their business growth slows and costs continue to rise,” it said.
“Many companies are now building more complex solutions in order to deliver better value to their customers.”
There is also an increasing demand for cloud infrastructure and services, with large-scale infrastructure projects increasingly being undertaken by large organisations, according eMarketers.
In 2017, large-sized organisations reported a whopping $US1.8 trillion in capital expenditure for infrastructure, up from $US3.1 trillion in 2016, according the report.
There were a total of 732 million cloud services services in use in 2017, up 23 per cent from 2016.
The IT sector accounted for more than $US8.9 trillion in the capital expenditure market in 2017.
The market is expected to expand by nearly 10 per cent over the next five years, eMarkets said.
