Planning for a Disconnected Future

Newsletter HomeNext

Too few IT jobs are being created

As CIOs rebuild their technology platforms to get in front of a more connected world, in which employees use their preferred mobile devices and consumer social networks to access corporate data and collaborate with stakeholders on both sides of the firewall, they should also consider preparing for a less connected world, argue Jeanne Harris and Allan Alter in a guest column for CIO Journal. Global instability (think of a fractured Europe, growing global unemployment, rising energy costs) could lead to greater barriers to free trade, increased calls for isolationism, and increased risk of cyber war.

If those scenarios come to pass, write Harris and Alter, “today’s assumptions about how to run enterprise IT – high speed Internet networking, the virtues of centralization and consolidation, the ability to tap foreign IT labor pools – won’t hold up. The CIO of a global, centralized IT organization will have different demands and responsibilities placed upon him than the CIO of a federation of independent country-based business units. Today’s hot button issues, such as bring-your-own-device and end-user driven IT innovation, will not be much of an issue anymore. IT’s priorities will be reshuffled.”

As the nation’s hiring goes, so goes IT

Pitney Bowes CIO Gregory Buoncontri tells CIO Journal he’s continuing to hire, but prudently, and principally in areas of strategic importance to the company like mobility and cloud. Overall, though, the tech sector added only 200 jobs in May, compared with 6,600 jobs in April, according to consulting firm Janco Associates. “Everybody is pulling back until after the election,” says Victor Janulaitis, CEO at Janco. His firm talked to 107 CIOs based in the U.S. in late May. “They’ve been told by senior management to put on the brakes.”

For the last few months the number of individuals employed in IT has increased (seasonally adjusted) 24,600 in the last 12 months.
