The US tech industry is recovering from the down economy, and spending is increasing
The US economy clearly isn’t out of the woods quite yet, but the technology industry is rebounding nicely as consumer electronics sales, enterprise spending, and IT investments are on the rise.
As the tech industry recovers from the down economy, there are new job opportunities opening up – and a growing need for new computers, servers, and IT services. The current economic recovery process has proven to be more forgiving, with the tech sector improving from 4.4 percent unemployment in Q1 2011 down to only 3.3 percent in Q4 2012.
Companies tend to have a love-hate relationship with the IT world, as a constantly evolving tech market can be sometimes difficult to navigate. Internal corporate IT departments are often underfunded and over worked, while executives also can be hesitant to recruit a third-party IT firm to lend a hand.
During the dot-com boom, companies seemingly weren’t able to hire workers fast enough – until the market crashed, leaving everyone from C-level executives all the way to administrative assistants unemployed. Since that time, there have been a number of technological breakthroughs, and the success carriers over to today’s generation of product and service development.
adoption of cloud computing
and mobile technology has drastically complicated the computer landscape, with cost, stability issues and security problems critical for proper day-to-day operations.
Here is what Dan Sanguinetti, President of IT specialist firm
, said in a statement:
“The IT industry has transformed the delivery of applications to the business community through the use of cloud computing. The concerns uncovered by the IT community include the need to contain IT costs, better control the migration to new versions of software, and provide access from an assortment of devices – it has ushered in the use of the cloud to improve productivity. Cloud offerings have helped evolve services to a world of increased reliance of remote access to patch file servers, remote access problems with the workstations, tablets or smartphones, along with the migration of data for backup and offsite storage.”
As companies continue to evolve their business strategies, it’s interesting to note IT departments are now better suited to offer robust data disaster recovery programs. The addition of cloud computing adds a unique twist, making the technology look extremely appealing, but there are plenty of potential issues that will need to be addressed in the near future.
It’s a brave new digital age out there, and it should be quite a ride…

The point being were are not talking about a few folks whom can adapt, we are talking about large quantity numbers of jobs across industry.
To many people think there job spot is ok, or they can adapt, but the larger community cannot, due to all the extended jobs lost when these events occur.
Look at what happened to mining town when the plant closed, not just the miners lost their jobs, the entire community that supported them also went under.
Support beyond a single job, is effecting every community, with all the downsizing.
Understand the available jobs currently is less then the number of unemployed.
Skill or not, if there is not space for a person to work and no place to go.
Skill has nothing to do with money, money greed always over ride skill.
Alot of companies have good skill folks working, but they still fail why with all that good skill ? Good skill means prosperity right ?? That's untrue, the extended jobs lost due to less resource usage, unfolds across and entire community suffers.
