The IT Consulting industry is composed of companies that help businesses design and implement information technology (IT) systems and infrastructure. Due to the low capital requirements of the industry, a modest number of operators are small nonemployers or independent contractors. Shifting technological trends such as the emergence of cloud technologies and data analytics are driving larger operators to acquire smaller companies and develop new products to stay relevant. This is driving demand for new services and encouraging companies to replace older, more traditional technology according to IBISWorld.
