Jobs in the IT Sector and Benefits of Low-Code Development

Despite its shortage of professionals, the software industry has an annual turnover of millions of dollars. Nevertheless, its possibilities for growth are affected by the scarce number of qualified professionals available, according to the Korn Ferry report: the shortage of 2.5 million technical staff in the technology, media and telecommunications sector worldwide will remain unchanged in 2020, and by 2030 it will be of 4.5 million if no action is taken in this regard. (The global talent crunch)

It is time to pay attention to this message and propose more stimulus to studies and resources that support professionals in order to reduce the shortage of specialized personnel.

Of course, this shortage of specialists will not be solved easily. However, it is possible to break out of the inertia and move forward by thinking about how the sector can avoid the technical blackout and support the long-term growth of the economy. One of the ways forward, but not the only one, is the development and availability of technical training programs for young people who have recently entered the labor market.

Since the most sought-after specializations in immediate demand include web and mobile developers, it is possible to implement a strategy to qualify more professionals in this area.

We know that a professional developer needs to understand several programming languages, such as Java, Python, JavaScript, C # and .NET. But, what if we could shorten this learning curve and train professionals in the use of a single language that would automate the programming of others? This is software that creates software using human input! In other words, low-code!

Low-code development reduces programming time by half compared to traditional languages. And what is the secret of this software? It hides the programming languages, automatically generating a source code that allows you to concentrate only on developing the solution and not on programming.

What about the result? Regarding development, we can list agility, productivity, flexibility, and scalability to solve mission-critical problems. However, taking into account our economic scenario, we will have more qualified professionals for any development demand, in addition to a strengthened sector for a solid and expanding economy.
