Organizations actively seek innovative approaches to optimize operations and costs while accelerating digital transformation initiatives and identifying new revenue streams.

Technical expertise and engineering capabilities are vital in organizations' ability to transform and achieve their goals. Consequently, the demand for IT specialists is rising — the US Bureau of Labor Statistics projects a 22% increase from 2020 to 2030.
