In Aberdeen City and Shire here are 284 IT companies in the area, which is very high given the population size. 65% of companies have less than 10 employees, and 20% have more than 20 employees. It is no surprise that Oil & Gas is the top sector, but there is a huge diversity in skills, sectors and business focus of the IT companies in the area.
