Business technology is constantly growing and evolving, and 2015 will be no exception. With a growing emphasis on mobile usage, cloud storage, social media, and collaboration, IT teams can expect to see some big changes in the new year — but when you have skilled resources in place, those changes don’t have to be scary or overwhelming. Read on for a sneak peek at some of the new tech positions you can expect to see in the coming months.
Technology Broker: Navigating Open Source Software and App Markets
Open source software and applications are invaluable tools. However, with so many apps on the market and such a wide range of open source software available, it’s almost impossible to find a quality product that will meet all of your team’s needs.
A technology broker’s sole purpose is to oversee what software and apps are being downloaded for professional use. They give advice on new software and recommend appropriate products based on your goals and infrastructure.
Information Insight Enabler: Keeping Data Organized
“Big data” may sound like a daunting term, but it’s essential to modern business. Companies of all sizes use some form of big data to determine where they are excelling and where they need to improve, and to gauge customer and employee satisfaction.
The purpose of an information insight enabler is to not only monitor and organize your data into usable information, but also to help your team make sense of the data and use it to make informed decisions.
User Experience Monitor: Improving Your Site’s Customer Service
This resource is especially necessary for older companies that have not updated their websites to enable access through mobile devices or apps.
A user experience monitor is a tech usability professional who knows the ins and outs of creating a mobile-friendly website that will provide an ultimate customer service experience for the modern age.
Social Media Evangelist: Promoting Online Collaboration
In an age where social media is dominating the digital marketing scene, this role will help businesses better understand and engage with their customers. The social media evangelist will recommend effective collaboration tools and promote communication — both externally, with customers and partners, and internally across the organization.
Technology isn’t slowing down any time soon, and neither should your hunt for IT talent. Stay ahead of the tech curve — and your competition — by recruiting and retaining skilled technology professionals to fill these exciting new roles. Need more help with this?
