Information and Technology Solutions is a national sector that is expected to experience rapid growth and expansion. New software capabilities, cyber security needs, expansion of telehealth and proliferation of personal computing devices will drive employment gains. The Bureau of Labor Statistics forecasts that between 2010 and 2020, employment in computer systems and design will increase by 46.7 percent.
Georgia and Gwinnett County are prepared for this growth and offer several amenities vital to technology information companies: Low electricity prices, concentrations of employment in data processing and hosting, software publishing, computer systems design and computer equipment manufacturing, which are twice the national average, and high-wage occupations that benefit talent retention and attraction.
In support of this industry and development, metro Atlanta has approximately 110,000 people holding credentials to work in this target area and Gwinnett County has several top Technology and Data Center sites.
