The industry is growing amid volatile conditions
Melbourne, Australia (PRWEB) October 16, 2012
As productivity and efficiency grow ever more important, a new spark of hope grows for the Computer Training Services industry in Australia. The Computer Training Services industry has been historically volatile so the five years through 2012-13 have been relatively stagnant, with significant growth being outweighed by equally strong falls in revenue. The slow level of technology adoption from a lack of national focus on business computer technology has been a main culprit. According to IBISWorld industry analyst Craig Shulman, “dwindling numbers of skilled computer experts also weigh heavily against the industry, mostly due to difficult work conditions coupled with more lucrative opportunities elsewhere”. In the five years through 2012-13, the Computer Training Services industry has grown an annualised 0.5% to reach $195.6 million.
The Computer Training Services industry in Australia has been mostly buoyed by the seemingly irreversible trend of technological advancement, attributing to the small growth present up till 2012-13. “With an easing of the Australian two-speed economy, a focus on technology and qualitative performance of business entities across the nation is expected to provide new avenues of growth for industry participants,” Shulman adds. With a growing trend towards cloud computing and business analytics, the skills of an IT professional are more in demand than ever. Testament to this is the commencement of the National Broadband Network, drawing back IT workers to the development of national infrastructure and placing emphasis on Australia's technological development. Existing industry players are expected to benefit from industry consolidation in earlier years, with less competitive players and favourable market conditions for growth. In the five years through 2017-18, industry revenue is expected to grow. IBISWorld expects that a future focus on technology will greatly benefit the Computer Training Services Industry.
The Computer Training Services industry in Australia is characterised by a low level of market share concentration. The largest company in the industry is Data Dimension Learning Solutions (DDLS) has a high market share. There is a large amount of industry players offering basic computer training services, and a range of software developers who will offer training courses on their specific product. Larger software companies such as SAP and IBM offer a larger range of computer system and solution training, while others choose to have partnerships with businesses in order to offer specialised learning without taking on extra set up costs. TAFE institutes are one of the preferred methods to receive computer-training services, however this is spread among a large number of institutions offering certification and qualifications.
