U.S. companies are looking to hire and retain those who are skilled in areas such as mobility, cloud computing, software development, and big data, according to two recently released reports. One comes from information technology staffing company Bluewolf, titled “2012 IT Salary Guide,” which provides an in-depth look at IT salaries and hiring trends. Bluewolf identified several skills that are in great demand, such as proficiency with Eloqua, Marketo, Salesforce, and Google Apps. In the mobile arena, demand for developers who know HTML5, iPhone/iPad, and Android is also on the rise.
The other report is Hackett Group’s “2012 IT Key Issues: Coming to Terms with the ‘New Normal’,” which identifies top companies’ key priorities for the year. According to Hackett Group’s survey, company leaders have indicated that one of their top goals is expanding the reach of their IT service delivery models, thus increasing the need for skilled IT professionals.
