IT staffing firm Bluewolf released its annual IT Salary Guide for 2012. The annual data, based on salary information collected from thousands of IT staffing placements managed by Bluewolf across the country, is used by organizations and professionals alike to determine how technology is driving trends and opportunities in business today.
While the report shows the biggest increases in demand for mobile, data, cloud and user engagement technologists, it also reveals a decline in job candidates with the skill-sets required to meet those needs.
“Organizations aren’t just competing against each other for qualified tech professionals—they’re contending with an ever widening talent gap and the mass exodus of baby boomer retirees,” warns Bluewolf co-founder and principal Michael Kirven. “This poses a huge challenge for business as they scramble to adopt new flexible technologies that support the Agile Enterprise, but for those with the right skill-sets, this should come as good news.”
