KEY MESSAGE: Over the Next 12 months Technology Sector alone will layoff or let go about 333,000 employees
 
 
REASONS:  For potential 333,000 layoffs in technology sector alone
  • Technology shift to Cloud Native and Mobile Native applications
  • Improving IT Efficiency by Micro-services, On-Demand and Spot Pricing
  • Value Migration from Technology Integration to Domain Specific Expertise
  • Consumer behavioral Shift
 
The following figure comprehensively illustrates the Industry shift that is going to cause about 333,000 layoffs in the Tech Sector alone and NY Fed Bill Dudley is totally clueless:
 
 
            
  • 70% of the current work which requires Back Expertise, Products and Services is going to get reduced to 30%, and will result in massive 333,000 layoffs in the tech sector
  • Sadly, the new jobs in Functional/Customer Domain will not be immediately filled, as those skills are scarce and the educational system is behind the curve
