While the year has just begun, it is never too early for businesses to ensure they have the proper solutions in place from the IT channel to manage the hot technology trends of the year to come. Staying on top of the most in-demand skills is critical for organizations that want to stay ahead of the competition when it comes to technological innovation.
A recent article from Mashable spoke with several different industry experts regarding what they believe will be the most in-demand skills of the new year. Many of these skills are expansions of technologies and strategies that organizations already have in place and will grow in importance.
"Everyone knows the tech industry will continue to sizzle in 2014, but where employers are really focusing big is investment, innovation and hiring across mobile, big data, analytics and privacy," Scott Dobroski, Glassdoor community expert, told the news source. "If a job seeker has experience in any of these areas, it's likely he or she is going to be a hot commodity."
The list of top IT skills for the new year include:
- Software engineer
- Web developers
- Network systems analyst/engineer
- Mobile developer
- IT manager
- Sales development
- Database administrator
- Chief digital officer
Reliance on technology is becoming a key factor in many organizations. However, handling these systems is not always easy. Many companies rely on VARs and MSPs to gain the expertise that is needed to push their companies forward. Quality solution providers have partnered with VAR Staffing to ensure that are able to identify and recruit the impactful talent that is needed to succeed.
