Re: A rising tide lifts IT's boat
We have seen some commoditization of certain IT jobs, for sure. It's one reason IT professionals want to continue receiving training on new techs -- that, and because it's generally something IT pros are genuinely interested in doing for themselves, as well as for career development. As in many careers, specialization helps. If you become adept in a specific vertical -- finance, healthcare, retail, etc. -- as well as an area of technology, you will most likely be in more demand and command a higher salary than someone who is a generalist.
