Technology Leadership – IT job market grows to exceed dot com head count

Technology leadership will be lacking in the next few years

Technology Leadership — IT job market size now exceeds the total IT job market size of the dot com bubble.  It took over 15 to get back to that level.  In the meantime the US has lost its control of IT technology market with the advance of outsourcing and H-1B visa programs.

IT Job Market finally back to 2000 levels — It took 15 years to recover from dot com bubble

Technology Leadership

I propose that this will be shown in the lack of “seasoned” IT Pros who do not exist that will have 10 – 15  years of experience and are 35 to 45 years old.  Does that matter?

Yes, it does because those are the individuals that will be the leaders and innovates who will drive enterprises in the next decade.  Without a significant number of those individuals to drive the next generation of technology, the US may not be in a position to have the ability to drive IT technology to the next step.
