As part of the Atlas of New IT Professions, all segments of the industry were studied, including software, hardware and software systems, and communication and computing infrastructure.
As part of work on the Atlas of the industry 13 in-depth interviews were conducted, questionnaires on predicting the future were organized with 206 leading industry experts, and a foresight session was held, which was attended by 150 IT professionals.
As a result, 40 new professions were developed, 6 transforming and 9 disappearing professions were identified.
Created on the basis of foresight forecasts of industry experts
Atlas of professions of IT-industry of Kazakhstan:
The new digital reality based on artificial intelligence (AI), quantum computing and immersive technologies will fundamentally transform people's lives. IT will be able to think and work for us, leaving people with an area of creativity. Physical boundaries in IT will be erased. We can easily communicate, work, rest at any distance. Software based on BiG Data analysis and applying AI will be the basis for IT development. The key areas of this process will be proprietary IT systems, predictive analysis, cyber protection, in particular, quantum cryptography and new digital realities.
AI development will lead to a deep transformation of the IT market. The bulk of codes and scripts will be created automatically. Templates and constructive programming will lower the threshold for entry into the industry, and in the future almost every specialist with a minimum set of programming skills.
