Summary

Over recent years, South Africa has started building its own version of Silicon Valley, poising the country to compete in the global digital economy. But, like Silicon Valley itself and other advanced economies, South Africa faces a chronic shortage of technology skills, which makes this market very attractive for anyone wanting to enter this field. Databases power most applications in the world, and with so much data being produced and consumed, intelligent systems need to be built every day to innovate how to best make use of that data. Relational databases and lately, NoSQL databases have become necessary partners to software development and people with both skills are very sought after in this market, both locally and globally. These factors indicate the need for database skills (not just traditional databases) encompassing both traditional and contemporary approaches.
