What is the digital economy?

The digital economy is broad and covers traditional IT jobs such as Software Programming, IT Networking and Data Analytics, and also non-traditional roles such as Sales/CRM, Digital Design, Digital Marketing and Digital Manufacturing.

Digital roles often require a mixture of technical skills and human skills, so for example Data Technicians and Analysts also require strong problem solving and communication skills to ‘talk data’ with less data-confident colleagues and customers whilst possibly resolving the challenges associated with working with data in different formats and from multiple sources!
