TEKsystems® today released its annual research which highlights an increasing optimism in the technology spending landscape. Nearly 900 IT leaders (CIOs, IT VPs, IT directors, IT hiring managers) were polled in September 2013 on the current state of IT spending, skills needs and workforce issues as well as expectations for 2014.
Key highlights from the survey include:
“In comparison to last year, IT leaders have significantly shifted their outlooks to be positive overall in IT budget allocations as well as their expectations for hiring and salary increases,” says TEKsystems Research Manager Jason Hayman. “Most interesting is that there seems to be greater demand for the core skill sets of programming and application development and software engineering. IT leaders indicate exceptional talent has become harder to find in these areas and have adjusted their salary strategies accordingly.”
TEKsystems’ Jason Hayman is available for additional commentary. For more information about the survey or to schedule an interview, please contact Rick McLaughlin (TEKsystems@daviesmurphy.com).
