The figures are compiled by GlobalData, which tracks the number of new job postings from key companies in various industries over time. Using textual analysis, these job postings are then categorized by topic.

GlobalData’s thematic approach to industry activity seeks to group key company information by topic to see which companies are best positioned to weather the coming disruptions in their industries.

These key topics, which include the cloud, are chosen to cover “any issue that keeps a CEO up at night.”

Tracking them through job postings allows us to see which companies are leading the way on specific issues and which are dragging their feet – and more importantly where the market is growing and contracting.
