What Businesses Are Relying More on IT?
Posted: Apr 08, 2021 | Reading Time: 2 Minutes
While many industries have been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, the shift from in-person interaction to virtual has been a benefit for some industries. The use of information technology in particular has been expanding among businesses and corporations to aid in the shift to virtual education, online meetings and other industries that have had to decrease or halt in-person contact.
Here are five industries that are growing in IT use.
Teleworking Software – Companies such as Zoom, Slack, Skype, Microsoft and Google have all seen increases in the utilization of IT professionals to oversee and aid in the upkeep of their virtual meeting software as their use has skyrocketed.
Healthcare and Pharmaceutical – It’s no surprise that healthcare and pharmaceutical industries have had to sharply increase their workload due to dealing with COVID-19 and its resulting vaccine rollouts. Healthcare IT is increasingly needed especially now, as many turn to virtual telehealth appointments to consult with their physicians without needing to risk an in-person visit to their doctor’s office.
Education – Much like work has moved to virtual-only, so has learning. The use of virtual meeting spaces to replace classrooms and virtual assignments and tests has led to the increase in need of information technology professionals to set up systems and diagnose any issues.
Streaming Platforms – The use of video streaming platforms in the United States has grown by 71% since November 2020, and with many networks such as HBO, NBC, and CBS now creating their own platforms, the use of IT will keep growing in this entertainment sector.
Logistics and Transportation – Due to the pandemic, tech companies that transport people such as Uber and Lyft have seen declines in their use, yet companies that transport goods – including USPS, UPS and FedEx – have seen massive growth. IT managers and software engineers in particular are used to help meet the demand of increased shipments and are vital to the shipping of goods and medical supplies such as vaccines.
