Input Required: Primary Subgroups of IT

MSP-ITMSP-IT Member Posts: 752 ■■■□□□□□□□
I had a spur of the moment idea about coming up with some data visualizations for the IT job industry. I'm trying to segment all of the different sub-groups of IT with as little overlap as possible. Please let me know if you can think of any more to add to the list.
  1. Development
  2. Database Management
  3. DevOps
  4. Help Desk/Customer Support
  5. Management
  6. Networking
  7. Security and Assurance
  8. Sales
  9. Systems Administration
  10. Technical Writing

I need more input.

    Project Managers

    System Managers (someone who sits between end users of systems and IT)

    Devops is just a buzzwordy way of saying developer who works with certain methods and constraints (and does some of the deployment stuff), it doesn't really belong on the list if you're trying to avoid overlap.

    I think it would really depend on how large the company is. Generally the larger the organization the more specialized. Here's my addition

    IT Auditor
    Database Developer
