Skill Trends

Here is an article from cert magazine about a study done among CCIEs.  What seemed surprising to them may not be a surprise to us on EHNet though. :)

Cisco has released the results of a survey of its Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE) holders, the highest level of professional certification offered by Cisco. The survey results speak to what skills CCIEs will be prioritizing in the next five years, as well as their views on green computing initiatives.
...
“When we asked CCIEs what are the technologies and the technology trends of the future, they pretty much came up with virtualization [and] unique communications including video and cloud communication,” Weiller said. “But then, when we asked them what will be the in-demand skills, which is different from the technologies themselves, what came up No. 1 was security and risk management. That was a surprise because security and risk management doesn’t get as much big headlines. It’s not the hottest topic like video or virtualization.”
"Live as though you would die tomorrow, learn as though you would live forever."

Re: Skill Trends

Like you said, I'm surprised they were surprised to find security was no. 1.
