Greatfor Bluewolf, right? Well, yes, we like that, but it’s more than just what’s happening at Bluewolf.Beyond our walls, it’s an optimistic indicator for the entire IT industry.The recession from 2008 to 2009 pent-up demand for IT investments and services. In thepanic, tech spending budgets were frozen. But Bluewolf, born during the dot-com bust adecade ago, knows firsthand that a recession necessitates more innovation, not less. Techspending is imperative for an organization’s long-term growth.So with 2010 came the inevitable need to thaw the frozen IT budget. Shrewdly, companiesare now modernizing their IT departments through a tremendous escalation in capitalexpenditures, including hardware, software and staffing investments.
  9. 9. interview with michael kirven.Furthermore, this march towards modernization is strategic in nature—not one-off, tacticalIT upgrades, but a true desire to align IT with the business.CIOs today are in transition. 2010 was for playing catch-up from the spending freeze. 2011 isthe time for CIOs to innovate and position themselves for the future. It’s time to look beyondcost-cutting measures and recognize the need for value-adding productivity. Shift frommanaging resources to managing results. putting capital to workAs part of the enormous increase in 2011 capital expenditures is a huge influx of venturecapital cash. And these VC firms are hungry to put their money to work.The increase of capital in today’s market is fueling the next wave of entrepreneurism. Theseentrepreneurial endeavors are proliferating the demand for “hot” technologies like Flash,Flex, PHP, Amazon Web Services and Salesforce.com.With Fortune 2000 companies competing against the onslaught of start-ups for a smallerpool of technical resources, it’s great news for technologists—it drives up salaries.what’s hot, what’s cooling off The hunger for mobile “apps” is creating a frenzy for contractors with skillsets in Google’s Android and Apple’s iPhone and iPad platforms. (Demand for Android developers increased 710% in 2010*.) As they mature into the B2B space in 2011, a scarcity of Android developers (usually with backgrounds in server side development, specifically Java will drive competition for resources and drive up salaries for developers. There is an interesting dynamic in the on-premise software space, as evidenced by the recent acquisition of ATG by Oracle. This is further validation that on-premise infrastructure still dominates the IT landscape. But Oracle, SAP and Microsoft all recognize that the future is in the Cloud. * Brown, Steven E.F. (2010, November 8). Android demand drives up contract hiring 121%. San Francisco Business Times.
