The business landscape is undergoing a transformation due to the digitization process. Consequently, technology skills are perpetually evolving.

Java, JavaScript and SQL developers are the most in-demand roles in 2022 due to the huge adoption of these languages in numerous organisations, reveals a recently launched '2022 Tech Skills & Trends Report' by global skill assessment and talent acquisition platform Mercer|Mettl. 

“Additionally, DevOps has become one of the prominent roles to hire across industries because of their increased emphasis on network security, rapid adoption of cloud systems, and agile methodologies,” says the report, based on the data collected from over 2 lakh assessments done in 2019-2021 by Mercer|Mettl.

Other than Java, JavaScript and SQL developers, the demand for full-stack developers who can work on frontend and backend is growing rapidly. 

When it comes to data science skills, the report says, SQL, AWS, and Azure have gained significance due to the strategic importance of data analysis and increased usage of cloud systems. Python, which is widely used in web programming, automation, data visualization, and data science, has become one of the most popular languages.

Established businesses as well as start-ups are extensively using technology such as AI, ML, blockchain and data sciences to differentiate themselves. This technical uprising has led to an exponential growth in demand for high-quality tech talent across variety of skills. MercerlMettl’s report is a study of technologies that have and will shape the future of various industries.
