4. Networking-This demand is being fueled partially by virtualization and cloud computing projects. The survey also revealed that execs will be looking for people with VMware and Citrix experience.
Business Intelligence-Computerworld interprets this uptick to a focus shift in many companies, from cost savings to investing in technology. That will be nice if it pans out that way.
5. Data Center-Virtualization and the Cloud could also be behind the increased need for IT professionals with backgrounds in data center operations and systems integration.
7. Security-Although down from 32 percent in the 2010 survey, security stays a top concern of IT executives.
8. Telecommunications-The survey indicates a demand for people with IP telephony skills, and for those familiar with Cisco IPCC call center systems.
In continuation to my blog above, here is the PDF file which highlights the much needed IT skills for the year and next. This is intended for general reading and hope this will be useful for HR staff in IT companies.
Wishing all of you a nice time during this Puja season,
