Organizations also are heading toward a multi-sourced environment, in which “their use of micro-services, contingent workers, cloud and internal capabilities are recast as services,” Cecere says. “This will require many roles to manage many sources of services and move away from internal assets such as servers, data centers and custom applications.” Data and analytics will become more segmented between business and IT, Cecere says. He defines data and analytics roles as including a broad range of data functions, like data analysis, master data management, data integration and architecture.
