+ - January Uptick in Hosting Jobs, but It's Not a Trend->

yl-roller (2788779) writes "Data processing, hosting and services jobs posted 1.73 percent year-over-year growth in January to 252,600 positions, according to a report by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.there's been talk that data center positions are under pressure because newer technology requires fewer people to run it. Though many professionals in the field contend the cloud is simply a repackaging of traditional hosting services, other industry observers seem to view things differently. In its August 2012 report , research firm Computer Economics said the cloud's negative impact on hosting jobs "wasn't yet supported by the historical data." At the same time, it estimated that operations as a proportion of total IT staff members slipped from 3.2 to 2.8 percent."
