In Part 1 of this article titled Top 5 Sector Impact by Augmented Reality Technology
we looked at the use of the camera to create virtual landscapes using Google Maps. In this second part we look at the top five sectors for augmented reality technologies. These are augmented reality glasses, contact lenses, smart phone glasses and software developers. Let’s quickly go through each one:
Google has recently purchased haptic technology from Cybex,
which provides smart phone based mapping and navigation. This makes it easier to get around streets, waterways and other information relevant to a location. This is also an example of Google’s renewed commitment to augmented reality. Just like Google+ and Facebook, there will probably be many more acquisitions, integration and partnerships as augmented reality grows and matures.
On our list of top providers of information and content Google Fiber is on the right track. We believe fiber is the wave of the future for internet applications and is positioned to become the dominant source of information for consumers. Fiber is not just a faster internet speed; it is also information at the speed of thought. It is like having your own private broadband internet connection without the expensive bills. We believe this trend toward bundled deals, instant approval of applications and information and entertainment will accelerate in the next few years.
This sector includes hospitals, doctors’ offices and clinics.
The health care industry is growing at a reported 3% annual rate. As baby boomers retire and the need for qualified physicians becomes more acute, we expect increases in patient traffic and demand for medical services. There will be an increase in government investment in health care as well.
Virtualization is the subject of much discussion these days.
How can this idea that makes computers virtually immovable work for physical activity? What does virtualization do that other technologies don’t? Virtualization helps information technology departments to achieve two goals: enabling the sharing of data and the optimization of resources. There are two ways to view virtualization: as software or hardware and virtualization can occur on the desktop, laptop, tablet and other mobile devices.
The fifth on our list of the top five sectors is allied health.
This sector includes nursing homes, rehabilitation centers, physical therapy and health clinics. Those in the allied health field assist and support health care professionals, including physicians, nurses and others. It is anticipated that employment for allied health care will continue to grow at a rapid pace.
Financial services are another important sector and include banks, investment firms, brokerage firms, stock markets and other financial services companies. Financial services have many similarities to information technology but have distinct differences. We believe financial services will experience growth in response to consumer needs for more financial services. The need will be for more sophisticated and accessible tools. Some think the use of bar codes in financial services will be replaced, but that may not happen for a number of years.
As you can see from the list above, there are a number of opportunities available to be a part of the top five sectors of employment. Which one are you going to choose? The one you select will depend on your skills, your interests and the overall direction in which you want to take your career. If you want to work with technology, think about working in finance or information technology, but if you want to be a part of the health care system consider the list of the top five sectors listed above.
The health care system is considered one of the top five sectors of employment right now. One reason for this is that healthcare workers are always in demand. Another reason is that health care requires specialized training. It is expected that in the next decade the top five sectors for careers will be telecommunications, information technology, health care management and administrative support. All of these positions require the same things but are broken down into different subtopics for further detail.
Technology has become a large and growing industry. Jobs in IT are expected to grow faster than average over the next few years. There are several different types of jobs in the IT field including software, hardware, network and server installation, networking, computer systems design and maintenance and information technology management. In order to be successful in one of these positions you must have solid computer and communication skills, as well as good communication skills. In the IT world these are skills that can usually be learned.
One final list of the top five sectors is the consumer market. There are two reasons for this. One, the people who are consumers will always need and want products. Two, the economic system will always support high levels of consumer demand.
