What’s the way ahead in the IT industry???

Recent developments in the context of global IT industries have reinforced questions as to whether the opportunities and the business scope of the software industry is in the path of sustainable development and if the opportunity for the fresher’s in the industry, are being respected. This was brought out by NAASCOM in a survey to figure out the scope for the business in different verticals in IT by the year 2020. The major concerns that the report talks about is not on the traditional comfort zones of the software industries, but on the foreseen challenges that the industry ought to confront and about the emerging new verticals in the IT industries. 

The major issues that an aspirant in IT need to be watchful are -

The scope for the software market is confined to $398 billion USD among $2500 billion USD. This implies that industry cannot expect good number of projects in software development. Since they don’t get the projects the requirement for the software programmers is coming down. Moreover the business scope for other verticals is better than software development. This implies that there is a good demand for those who can fit for the other verticals like Cloud Computing, Remote Infrastructure Management Services, Information Security, Datacenter Engineering, 4G Technology, Data Analytics, Mobility etc.

The Recent IDC report published in Economic Times states that Cloud Computing will generate 15 million jobs by 2015 with India contributing to about 2 millions of it. Regarding the demands of the infrastructure management it is estimated that The IMS industry currently accounts for US$524 billion, nearly a quarter of the US$2.3 trillion overall IT spends and is moving towards a remote delivery model where services are increasingly delivered by vendors from low cost locations. During 2005-2008, the RIM industry in India has grown more than threefold from US $1 billion to US $3.6 billion at over 50 percent year-on-year, significantly higher than the overall industry average of approximately 32 percent. With such a head-start, India could leverage its competitive advantages to acquire a disproportionate share of the opportunity by 2013, i.e. US $13 billion to US $15 billion, and create 325,000 to 375,000 incremental jobs in the process. The potentials of information security services and job market continue to expand. In fact, according to a report by Burning Glass Technologies, over the past five years demand for cyber security professionals grew 3.5 times faster than that for other IT jobs. Employment in the occupational group that includes information security analysts is projected to grow 22 percent from 2010 to 2020, faster than the average for all occupations, according to Eric Presley, CTO at CareerBuilder

Hence to register a comfortable career in the above mentioned domains a professional has to undergo a training program which gives theoretical and practical exposure on the following technical skills and services like

• Server Management (UNIX, Linux, AIX etc.)
• Storage (EMC, HP, IBM, Symantec etc)
• Network (Wireless, WAN, VoIP, IP Telephony, Traffic &Bandwidth)
• Security services (Linux Firewalls, IDS, Penetration Testing, ISMS)
• Cloud Services (Linux, Infrastructure & Virtualization).
• VPN Services (IPSEC, MPLS,)
• Performance Management (SCCM, RSA Envision, WSUS)
• Web Servers (IIS, Apache etc.)

IT Industry now a day is looking for the trained fresher’s because they are not in a position to train them. The wide scope for cloud, IMS, security etc.. with respect to high profile career and placements open a strong platform in the days ahead. Hence to enjoy the benefits of a dream career in the IT industry at a tangible height, we are at the nick of time to redefine ourselves to fit the industry.
