“Dice this week released its January 2011 report, which detailed the skills most in demand in the IT industry. Basing its data on the number and types of job postings available, Dice determines what types of technical expertise are most in demand. According to the career Web site, skills requests had to appear in at least 1,000 job postings to qualify for analysis in this report.
Another expected set of skills in demand is around information security, with 1,680 available jobs listed on Dice now – a 109% increase. Virtualization is also seeing an uptick in interest with some 2,100 related positions posted, representing a 92% increase in demand.”
The demand of these skills should not come as a surprise or unexpected to most IT managers. The growing spread of mobile technologies, cloud computing coupled with the growing need for online access by businesses (small and large) to have a web presence is driving this demand and there are no any indications that this demand will slow down anytime soon.
All these technologies are linked together, cloud computing will increase the demand for network security skills and online business applications will increase the demand for SAP and HTML skills, to put it on very simple terms.
