Top 3 Tech Skills - Fetcha - Feb 2023

What are the top three in-demand tech skills?

2022 revealed some exciting technical and cloud skills which have grown considerable in the past 5 years. In today’s insight, we look at the three most in-demand skills and the knock on effect for new positions within the cloud.

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning

The most in-demand skills of AI and Machine Learning are Python, Java, TensorFlow, and R code writing. Due to the increasing demand for talent, IT professionals that are equipped with these tech skills are in heavy demand across a number of business sectors worldwide. AI and ML have become an integral part to many businesses, helping foster internal teams that are capable of integrating cloud services that can help train, model and predict data. Positions such as; Big Data Engineer, Data Analyst, Machine Learning Engineer and ML specialist are common open positions within many start-ups and enterprise companies.

Data Science

Data Scientists and Data Analysts use tech skills such as data visualisation, machine learning, statistics and programming. Data scientists work on ways to collect data while data analysts extract the most relevant data. The main difference between a data analyst and a data scientist is heavy coding. As these tools help organisations manage and utilise their data, the need for experienced scientists of data has risen dramatically since 2015, as more and more businesses begin to focus on building and managing databases and data lakes. Positions such as; Data Scientist, Data Analyst, Business Analyst and Junior Data roles are extremely popular among many SaaS, PaaS and IaaS companies right now.


Cloud Analysts are responsible for the planning and engineering of an organisation’s cloud computing applications and services. Cloud Analysts implement and design hardware and software that runs entirely in the cloud. Being a Cloud Analyst, you also tend to monitor the performance of systems. Additionally, Cloud Analysts are familiar with standard concepts, practices, and procedures of cloud technology, including Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). Because of their flexibility  between SaaS, PaaS and IaaS, analytical experts within the cloud are rated as one of the top three in-demand skills going. You’ll come across thousands of analyst or analytics consultant positions as businesses begin to fully harness the advantages of better insight and prediction within their revenue and business services.
