Regardless of the recent economic downturn among information technology firms,
workers in the occupation should still enjoy favorable job prospects. The
demand for networking to facilitate the sharing of data, the growth
of client-server environments, and the need for computer specialists to use
their own knowledge and skills in a problem-solving capacity will be major factors
in the rising demand for computer systems analysts, database administrators,
and computer scientists. Moreover, falling prices of computer hardware and
software should continue to induce more businesses to expand their computerized
operations and integrate new technologies. In order to maintain a
competitive edge and operate more efficiently, firms will keep demanding
computer specialists who are knowledgeable about the latest technologies and can apply them to meet with the requirements of businesses.
An increasing number of computer specialists, like systems analysts and network
and data communications analysts, are employed on a temporary or contract
basis; several of these people are self-employed, working independently as
contractors or consultants. By way of example, a company may require the services of several systems analysts just to get the system running. Because not all the analysts would be needed once the system is functioning, the company might contract for such employees with a temporary help agency or a consulting firm or with the systems analysts themselves. Such
jobs may last from a few months as many as two years or longer.
This growing practice enables companies to bring in people with the exact skills the firm needs to
complete a job, instead of having to spend time or money training or retraining existing workers. Often, experienced consultants then train a business’s in-house employees for a project grows.
