Re: Wireless Network Engineer Carves Out It's Own Niche ?
@Technocrati,

If we look at the list, there's a common theme, and that is of Cloud and Mobile Solutions. Companies are driving there business with strategic initiatives based on technology, thus requiring a platform that requires backend and front end solutions.

I see this list, and it's a project team working together to deliver a robust solution

Re: Big data
@Technocrati, that's a very good point, if you've got the skills and experience in some of these positions it's not likely that you're looking for a job.  If you've been in that position for any amount of time, then chances are you've grown into that position and it has grown around you.  That happens often with new markets so if you've had time to build a position around what you love doing it is going to take more than a pay bump to get you to move.

Re: Big data
@ SaneIT I agree with you. Even I am not quite sure whether they are paid the same way in most of the companies.

Re: IBM plays a strong card: data management

"..And of course the more data scientists, the more potential users for Watson."

 

@Charlie    Nice connection.   And good point, you really do need to cultivate "power users" to interface and capitalize on the power of Watson.

Re: Big data

Funny,  I have seen a few Data Scientist postings, and if you have all the skills that these employers want - then you are probably not looking for another job.

Wireless Network Engineer Carves Out It's Own Niche ?

This is was a very interesting list.  I was particularly surprised to see Wireless Network Engineer as something on the uptick.   

I have not seen listings for this as a sole responsibility though, it still seems to be part of a traditional system admin role.

IBM plays a strong card: data management
IBM has a lot of data handling techniques, first learned in managing data safely on the mainframe. It originated the relational revolution in the 1980s. And of course the more data scientists, the more potential users for Watson.

Re: Credentials for a big data job are.....
I think this is a trend we're going to see more of though, IBM has specific needs and if they can find the skills they need by running people through a few courses more power to them.  Certificates are nice and all but I think the key for most larger companies will be to find the people and build them up.

Re: Big data
@SaneIT: With so much artificial intelligence work going around in companies I thought I would see a job position for this specialization. But there isn't one. Is there?
