Businesses are hiring technical support engineers to manage the software, network, and other applications that are related to the computer systems of an organization.

These listed above are a few of many high paying freelance gigs. Until recently most companies have avoided the reduction of costs as the primary benefits of cloud-based flexible consumption (more commonly known as pay as you go). However, over the last year, two new and highly strategic factors appear to be driving the rapid growth of service-based IT, these two new factors go hand-in-hand with freelance gig opportunities.
With cloud and freelance tech becoming widely available, companies are seeing great benefits that greatly increase their business agility, and significantly reducing their overall costs. This greatly increases their value proposition, competitive strengths and time to the market.
The next big markets to benefit is AI (artificial intelligence) and Internet of Things (IoT)-based solutions for large, medium, and small enterprises. The entire technology utilizes cloud and freelance gig markets, giving access to services and solutions that were only available for the very largest enterprises.
Roughly 60% of enterprises are expected to move their IT systems to be cloud based, as a part of their digital transformation initiatives. Where will they find the very specialized IT technical professional to do this?
The primary value proposition of cloud continues to shift from “cost/efficiency” to “innovation acceleration.” Now multi-cloud strategies are starting to play a very important part in the underlying corporate strategies. It appears that over 65% of businesses are using or are expecting to use a hybrid model.
Integral to this will be an advancing technology we’ve discussed many times called Blockchain. As people and devices increasingly become mobile connected, funding, tracking, identity privacy/security will become much bigger overall concerns and blockchain has the ability to provide a robust way to solves many of these challenges.
Within the broad umbrella of IT Engineers, there are various fields, such as software engineering, network engineering, web development and telecom engineering, among others, all moving to cloud based and blockchain support.
