The digital economy and the transformation of business models has led to the emergence of a number of functions and jobs that were previously non-existent or under-demanded. Today, security specialists, data analysts, experts in artificial intelligence or network administrators, among others, are highly valued professionals in business, but whose shortage in the labor market is a reality.

The ultimate boost in digital talent

At the end of 2016, the European Commission was already aware of the need to promote this kind of talent and give a response to the demand for these capabilities. As a result of this interest, the decision to launch the so-called Coalition for digital jobs and capacities, organized jointly with Member States, companies, professionals in the educational environment and social partners and NGOs. Its main objective is to cover the shortage of professionals and generate "a large reserve of digital talent" that can be nurtured by European companies. According to the European institution on the continent it needs people with digital capabilities to fill vacant posts in all sectors, which could result in the loss of up to 750,000 skilled jobs in information and communications technology (ICT) by 2020.

Y que, en especial, aumentará el empleo entre profesionales del derecho, ciencias, salud y las TIC.
