Summary

The recent report from Deloitte Access Economics for the Australian Computer Society, Australia’s Digital Pulse (2017) emphasises the significant need of businesses across a diverse range of sectors for Information and Communications Technology (ICT) skills. There has been a boom in the growth of Australia’s ICT workforce in recent years and strong growth in the ICT workforce is expected to continue over the coming years. The strong demand for ICT workers and skills is consistent with the significant role digital technologies will continue to play in driving Australia’s economic growth. The increasing digitisation of Australian businesses’ operations across all sectors of the economy has resulted in greater integration between ICT functions and broader business operations.
