Mobile App Developers, Security Engineers in Demand
Other top jobs for the year include iOS and Android developers, mobile user experience designers, big data analysts and data scientists.The Internet of Things and 3D printing are among the top 15 tech trends for 2015. Top-trending IT jobs coinciding with these trends include security and cloud engineers, according to a report from Mondo. Other top IT jobs this year include iOS and Android developers, mobile user experience designers, big data analysts and data scientists. The report noted that while mass production remains one of the biggest obstacles to 3D printing, the technology is rapidly evolving. 3D technology has the potential to reduce the carbon footprint by reducing materials waste, creating products with longer life spans, allowing for localized production sites, and enabling companies to make products on more of an as-needed basis,, the report said. "3D printing is not necessarily transforming IT. It’s that it's a new technology that's transforming other industries like manufacturing and biomedical sectors," Laura McGarrity, vice president of digital marketing strategy for Mondo, told eWEEK. "It does create new job growth within the IT industry. Benefits to consumers include the ability to try and re-work prototypes before going to the market - consumers can expect products made for their specific needs."
Software-defined infrastructures, or SDIs, are forecast to greatly impact enterprises, and Mondo estimates that 60 percent of CIO budgets will be spent on infrastructure and operations over the next 12-18 months.
