Rich Hein | Jan. 27, 2015
Which technology skills will be in the biggest demand in 2015? CIO.com talked to Foote Partners to find out what IT leaders need to be on the lookout for in the months ahead.

Some key areas that Foote calls "strong performers" include auditing, hacking and forensics certifications. Cybersecurity forensic analyst certification continues to perform well, up 8.3 percent in the last six months; the second highest paying among all 55 in the group.

Software Quality Assurance
As demand for software and architects continues so does the need for people to make sure the job was done right and that the customer experience is a good one. "We're expecting to see growth in software QA skills, certifications and salaries in 2015. Lots and lots of software development on multiple platforms but of course mobile especially, lots of automated and manual testing needed," says Foote.

Final Thoughts on 2015
Overall, 2015 looks promising. The market continues to improve with IT unemployment under 3 percent and companies are investing more in full-time employees.
