Today’s discussion topic for #TCFchat (hosted by the Tech Career Forum Wednesdays at 3pm Eastern on Twitter) will center around the IT outsourcing market in the U.S. and the changing skills sets that will be (and already are) required from IT workers.
Without a doubt, the focus of IT is rapidly becoming more business centric, and the demand for business-enterprise architects, business technologists, systems analysts, network designers, systems auditing, and project managers is on the rise. Business skills will become as necessary as tech knowledge as business enablement becomes the main concern (see recap of earlier discussion: The IT Organization: Road block or true business enabler?).
Here are the questions for today’s discussion:
1. What are some of the current trends in IT outsourcing in the U.S.?
2. What job opportunities does IT outsourcing create for in-house positions?
3. How does outsourcing impact the current and future job market in the U.S.?
4. What should an IT professional do to leverage these trends in their career planning?
We hope you can join us at 3pm ET today!
