Target Industries


From SAS, the world’s largest private software company, to open source giant Red Hat and dozens of tech startups, Raleigh and Wake County’s tech industry is growing rapidly, spurring innovation and attracting talent to the region.

Wake County and the Research Triangle region have one of the largest concentrations of tech talent in the nation across analytics, mobile applications, open source, healthcare IT, cloud computing and cyber security. Just last year, Raleigh ranked fourth in the country for having the highest concentration of technology job openings right behind San Francisco, Austin and Seattle. 

The region’s world-class universities are boosting the area’s tech talent pool with innovative programs such as NC State’s Institute for Advanced Analytics, which boasts the first Master of Science in Analytics in the country.
