Vero Beach, FL, January 20, 2013 – Extra pay---also known as ‘skills premiums’--- specifically awarded to talented IT professionals for 317 noncertified IT skills and 279 IT certifications continued to follow dramatically different trend paths in the fourth quarter of 2012 according to the a new update of Foote Partners’ IT Skills and Certifications Pay Index TM (ITSCPI).

TRENDS DISCUSSION IT Employment Overview U.S. employment numbers for December 2012 released by the Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics (DOL/BLS) revealed a net gain of 9,800 jobs for the months across four industry job segments commonly associated with IT professionals. This follows three months of seesawing IT employment numbers: September’s net loss of 1,700 jobs, October’s 12,500 surge, and a sudden drop to 6,800 new workers in November. Last month’s job gain is notably higher than the 9,442 monthly average for IT job growth in 2012, a year which saw a net gain of 113,300 IT jobs in these four BLS industry job segments. All of the growth in IT jobs in 2012 DOL/BLS reporting can be attributed to two segments heavily represented by the IT services industries, which together added 131,600 new jobs to American payrolls for the year. The Management and Technical Consulting Services segment gained 5,800 jobs in December --- up from no growth in November --- for a total of 56,700 new jobs in 2012. The other segment, Computer Systems Design/Related Services, added 5,600 jobs last month and 74,900 for the year. Two segments in the Information BLS industry job group, Telecommunications and Data Processing, Hosting and Related Services segments, continued to post losses in December (-1,600 jobs). Together they combined for a net total loss of 18,300 jobs for the year (average 1,525 per month), nearly all coming from telecommunications employers. Interestingly, over the last six months of 2012 these segments combined for a net gain of 400 jobs. Given the loss of 41,700 jobs in these segments in 2011, we continue to believe a strong case can be made that the labor market correction so apparent in Telecommunications and Data Processing, Hosting and Related Services over the past year is nearing its end. But it’s doubtful that we’ll be seeing any sustained job growth in these segments for the foreseeable future as industry forces continue to limit the possibilities. “For IT professionals 2012 certainly ended on a good note, with December exceeding the monthly average for the entire year,” according to David Foote, chief analyst at Foote Partners which has been closely tracking and reporting on IT and business labor trends since 1997. “In fact average job growth in the last three months of 2012 exceeded the average in the first nine months of the year by nearly 350 jobs per month. That may seem like a small margin but there is momentum attached to it and that’s a really good sign of things to come in the next few months. Employees also enjoyed slightly faster wage growth and worked longer hours in December according to the BLS, which could bode well for future hiring.”

All Rights Reserved. Page 13 Copying, reproducing, or publishing graphic content from this release prohibited with permission of author. The caveat in all this is the challenge facing Washington politicians as they continue to wrestle over how to address the budget deficit and debt ceiling issue. The $110 billion in across-the-board federal spending cuts scheduled for March 1, for example, might provoke layoffs by local governments, military contractors and other companies that depend on federal funds. There are a lot of IT workers that could be affected. “But the fact remains that many of the IT job segments in the government jobs reports, in particular those in IT services, have been on strong and sustained growth runs for some time now. I see no structural shifts taking place right now that could produce sustained IT job losses in 2013,” insists Foote. “On the contrary, many of the 2,500 employers we closely track are actively searching for talent and hiring for the future, though with considerable selectivity. They are aggressively searching for new talent investments in cloud computing, mobile platforms and applications development, business analytics and big data, business applications development, and information security, to name only a few areas. So too are aggressive efforts to innovate new products and services that are creating demand for new workers to fill a variety of roles that combine IT and business knowledge and experience. It’s becoming harder than ever to separate information technology and business strategy; this is an ideal marriage of expediency and innovation in a very competitive global business environment.” IT Skills and Certifications Trends—and How They Relate to Employment At the skills supply and demand level, which Foote Partners closely tracks in its IT Skills and Certifications Pay Index TM (ITSCPI) and quarterly IT Skills Demand and Pay Trends Report, IT employment has been exceptionally volatile since the economic downturn intensified in 2007. At the jobs demand level the truth is that many of the IT job segments in the government jobs reports, in particular those in the IT services industries, have been on sustained growth runs. But in our proprietary jobs and skills tracking research involving nearly 2,500 employers---arguably a more accurate picture of the true IT employment market unhampered by the Department of Labor’s unrealistically narrow definition of IT jobs and roles---we observe that what’s really driving jobs volatility is not so much the economic environment but widespread acceptance of IT’s role as an engine of innovation and competitiveness. Mix that with disruptive technologies that offer countless opportunities for business growth and profitability but so far exceed our ability to manage them comfortably and we have this: shifts in IT roles and responsibilities that have shaken the foundation of what it means to be an IT professional. And this has had a profound impact on the IT skills market and how labor is sourced.

Employers continue to aggressively pursue workers with multiple talents mixing technology, domain, business, process, and ‘people’ skills. Unique skills sets that many who have fallen out of the workforce simply do not possess. It can also be a unique combination of pure tech skills: for example, cloud administrators who are adept at automating the configuration and operations in a cloud environment by combining a variety of different skill sets around systems administration, virtualization, storage and network administration. It’s not about just configuring and running a server. Or cloud developers who have mastered new sets of APIs, new frameworks, and non-relational databases like NoSQL to develop elastic and scalable apps in the cloud. Or in the area of big data, Data Architects who may have traditional programming backgrounds but are also well versed in statistics and data management and analytics and exercise powers of creatively and persistence to harness data in new ways to meet new business needs. The latest IT Skills and Certifications Pay Index is showing strength in a variety of skills associated with big data initiatives, further evidence this is poised to go mainstream:  Apache Cassandra  Apache CouchDB  Apache Hadoop  Apache Hive  Big Data analytics  Cloudera Certified Developer for Apache Hadoop  Complex Event Processing/Event Correlation  Couchbase Server  Hbase  MapReduce  MATLAB  MongoDB  NoSQL  Pig/Pig Latin  Predictive Analytics and Modeling  Prescriptive Analytics  Redis  Riak So too are a variety of mobile applications development and platform skills. And these cloud computing skills are gaining value and earning skills premiums well above average:  vCloud  Java SE/Java EE  Cloudera software  EMC Cloud Architect Expert (IT-as-a-Service)  EMC Cloud Architect Specialist (Virtualized Data Center)  HP ASE – Cloud Integrator  HP ATP - Cloud Administrator  HP ASE Cloud Architect V2 Speaking more broadly on the subject of noncertified IT skills, pay and demand for database skills has performed the strongest in 2012, gaining 14.8 percent in value overall for the calendar year. So too have management, methodology and process skills which have gained over 13 percent in value over the past two years. The SAP and Enterprise Business Applications group recorded a surge in demand in the past quarter for twenty-one SAP and Oracle ERP skills but also diminishing values in twenty-four related skills, for a net

The importance of this ITSCPI finding is that ERP skills still matter enough that employers are willing to pay a premium for a very large number of them and aggressively adjust these premiums to market conditions in order to attract and retain ERP talent. Despite the poor performance of pay for IT certifications overall for the past several years, database certifications have likewise been the strongest performers among eight categories reported in the IT Skills and Certifications Pay Index TM . For the twenty-one database certifications in this group premiums rose nearly 2 percent in the last three months of 2012 and 7.6 percent for the entire year at 2,430 employers who contribute data to our benchmark research. The gains in pay for Oracle and Teradata certifications were mostly responsible for the increases. Networking and communications certifications lost the greatest market value in 2012 (-11.3 percent) led by declines in a broad selection of Avaya, CWNP/Wireless, Cisco, SNIA, Juniper, Brocade, and EMC certifications. The greatest share of these losses were in the first six months, tapering off to flat performance in the final three months. We believe market adjustments for this group have largely run their course and will be more stable in 2013. Less stable have been 35 applications development and programming certifications which have displayed marked volatility throughout the past year, ending 2012 with a nearly one percent gain in market value in October, November and December. We believe new cloud related certifications launched in 2012 and expected to launch this year may have a positive effect on certifications values in this group based on a very positive performance for cloud-related noncertified IT skills pay in the last two quarterly updates to the ITSCPI.

All Rights Reserved. Page 17 Copying, reproducing, or publishing graphic content from this release prohibited with permission of author. How to interpret gains and losses in IT skills and certifications pay premiums Quarterly gains and losses in premium pay reflect a widening or narrowing, respectively, in the gap between supply and demand for skills and certifications. This may occur for any number of reasons. For example, a quarterly decline in pay for a skill may signal that the market supply of talent for that skill is catching up to demand—not necessarily that demand is starting to wane. IT professionals are often attracted to a skill or certification if they perceive that it has rising value in the marketplace and therefore can help them to achieve higher pay, greater job security, a promotion , or more flexibility in their career choices. As they pursue greater competency in that skill or as more workers attain certification, supply increases and market pricing(which is elastic to the laws of supply and demand) will be driven downward unless demand is rising at the same proportional rate. Conversely, if demand rises and supply is not increasing to match that level of demand, pay premiums for specific skills and certifications will increase. Therefore when interpreting gains and losses in market pay it is important to consider all factors that could be driving supply and demand and market perception. Those factors range from: - aggressive marketing of certifications by vendors; - changes in certification programs (e.g. certification extensions or retirement); - new technology and evolution/maturation of current technologies; - technology adoption rate; - product integration strategies, - economic conditions; - employment opportunities; - mergers/acquisitions; - budget cycles and the timing of skills and talent acquisition by employers; - changes in labor sourcing plans pursuant to company strategies.
