The Cisco Cloud Index Report of 2013 introduces some new areas of growth in the IT and developer job market. Specifically, it looks at which technologies will probably require more qualified engineers in the next few years. These include:
- Software-defined Networking
- Cloud APIs
- Fog Computing
You can look into Cisco's methodology yourself if you're skeptical of the vendor's motives, but their conclusions seem to be in line with the predictions I'm hearing from the rest of the industry.
