The past decade saw the following trends emerge in the South African ITS Industry. Firstly, market size grew exponentially from a ten-fold million Rand market into one estimated to be worth about R12-15 billion in a 3-year rolling cycle. A second trend is the diversification of ITS into more sub-disciplines with the result that new players entered into the market, for example financial/banking institutions and mega software companies.
Despite this rapid market growth, the number of ITS practitioners – those at the core of the ITS industry -- has remained relatively constant. This requires that ITS practitioners not only have to work smarter, but work harder as well.
A Strategy Survey was conducted last year, produced very useful results, and last month a short Skills and Experience Audit was conducted. The aim was to inform ITSSA’s skills and capacity building strategy, and again useful results were obtained.
