In 2018 in Belgium, the turnover of companies in the information and communication technologies (ICT) sector represented nearly 40 billion euros, an increase of almost 10% compared to the previous year. .
To continue to remain profitable in a competitive environment, all companies in the sector must pay close attention to new technologies.
The world is changing with new technologies
New technologies are completely changing the way we consume and communicate. A few years ago, a concert automatically meant a place in a hall. Today, with live streaming, concerts are happening live from any device or even thanks to virtual reality, like that of Jean-Michel Jarre, all you need is an internet connection.
It is not only entertainment that is going digital, other sectors are also getting started, such as insurance. Maybe one day you will no longer go to the branch of your AXA Belgium insurer but simply to its website.
Interesting fact: today in Belgium, more than 310,000 jobs are linked to the new technologies sector according to figures from the ONSS. And the hopes are optimistic: in two years, this figure could increase by more than 20,000 jobs.
